Check out my latest Cricut Infusible Ink Pens Hakuna Matata Shirt I created!

What is Cricut Infusible Ink

Cricut Infusible Ink is the modern way to take your crafting to a whole other level.

Vibrant designs that you can personalize and the ink fuses into the product so that there is no peeling or cracking in your design.

You can wash and wash the garments that you make with Cricut Infusible Ink and it will stay just as vibrant as day one! 

No fading, no stretching, just clean and fresh designs that will elevate your designs to a whole new level.

How Do You Use Infusible Ink

Right now you can use the Infusible Ink pens or reach for the Infusible Ink transfer sheets.


For my Coasters I used the transfer sheets, and for this shirt-craft, I reached for the pen markers. The quality of these finished coasters are the same you would find in stores mass produced.

To learn how to use the transfer sheets go here.

When you buy the transfer sheets you also get the butcher paper right in the package.

The biggest difference is you can make each one completely unique to the person you are making them for. And the quality is that of something you could definitely make and sell.

With the transfer sheets and the pens, there is already design or pattern on the sheet. They come in 12×12 sheets and you cut the design into that sheet. 

Once you cut out your design into the transfer sheet, you crack and peel around it and then when you press it, it literally infuses into the material. The design is completely seamless, as are the Infusible Ink pens.

Think of it kind of like the pattern fill feature in Cricut design space, but way more vibrant and perfect than any print and cut.

Just cut press and get a vibrant flawless look each time!

What Is The Difference Between Vinyl Iron Ons and Infusible Ink

The difference between them is almost night and day. Vinyl Iron-Ons are more like a sticker that with heat you stick to your shirt.

Infusible Ink infuses into the shirt with ink so there is no type of adhesive involved. It is a permanent design where other vinyl can eventually wear off. 

What Temperature Does The Heat Plate Reach 

The heat plate on your Cricut EasyPress will reach up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Which is the perfect temperature for ceramic coasters.

This is really high heat and should cover all your crafting needs!

The heat plate heats evenly so it offers that flawless Infusible Ink transfer each and every time.

I can’t even tell you how sharp and clean your designs will look in real life. It will look like you purchased it in a store!

Elevated Personalized Designs 

Look at the incredible design the Infusible Ink offers. You can create almost any design for that ultimate personalized design to showcase your style.

The Hakuna Matata Shirt lets me rock the No Worries theme, anytime I feel the need. I can wear this out to a ball game, grocery store, or summer cookout.

 

I get complimented anytime I wear it asking where I got the shirt. When I tell them I made it, their jaws drop.

They can’t believe it looks so professional for a DIY project at home. That is why the Infusible Ink products are always in stock in my home.

No shiny vinyl look, no peeling, no cracking after a handful of washes. Clean, crisp, and flawless design.
