Choosing The Right Heat Press And Cricut Machine For Your Business

 Let’s start with a shortlist of the Cricut machines available.

Cricut Machines

Probably the most popular is the Cricut Machine, this brand has been around for years and years. The crazy thing is initially, primarily used for paper crafting like cards and scrapbooking. The Cricut machine is the one I know most about so after I have listed them I will talk mostly about this machine.

Cricut Maker

This is the newest of the Cricut machines and honestly has the most options as far as cutting. There are 8 blade options for this machine and 7 of these are the smart blades.

With the Cricut Maker, you have the option of cutting over 100 different materials. Including wood and acrylic. Cricut Maker Bundles start at as low as $419.

Cricut Explore Family of Machines

These machines are great for a startup, the price is lower and you still have 100s of materials that can be cut. Bundles start at $269 for the Explore Machines. (this is the machine I started with)

If you are just starting out and need to learn just a little bit more about the machines check out this post here.

Let’s face it, most of y’all have already started your business, with an iron…. If you could hear me cussing right now, ohhh.

If you still have that iron then you know that it is not adequate enough to start a business. So let’s talk about what is.

Cricut EasyPress2

This is the perfect solution to a small business at home and the lack of extra space.

The largest of the machines is 12×10 and works amazing for creating t-shirts that are professional looking and you don’t have to worry about them peeling. 

You can grab EasyPress 2 Bundles that include Heat transfer vinyl to get started for as low as $159.99.

Heat Presses

There are tons of heat presses out there on the market, but how do you know which to start with. 

Well, my first press was a 12×15 press that came with all the attachments I would need for the next year+ here is the one I started with.

You don’t need something huge to start, chances are you don’t have the room for a huge press so this is perfect.

My second press is huge! 16×24 and this came in handy when doing fill front orders and even bigger ones, although you don’t need this starting out you can see the HPN Black Series here.

Keep following, there is some invaluable information I am giving away totally for free.
