Cricut Infusible Ink is a heat transfer system that permanently dyes or infuses your materials. This is not at all like a normal iron on transfer as the finish is smooth and will last the full life of the garment, without peeling, fading or stretching out.

Currently, there are 2 ways to infuse with infusible inks, infusible ink pens markers, and infusible ink transfer sheets.

The pens and markers work with your Cricut explore, explore air and the maker to make your designs come to life. To use the pens, you use them like any other pen, on copy paper.

You can then use the copy paper to transfer the drawing/design onto your tote bags or whatever else you are using your Cricut EasyPress mat and EasyPress.

To transfer the design you will allow your cutting machine to draw on whatever design you decide, I would use the light grip cutting mat when working with the copy paper.

Once the design is drawn take the paper from the mat, put a piece of card stock between the front and back of your materials, place your design and then place butcher paper on top and press.

For the infusible ink transfer sheets, you are going to cut the design just like you would vinyl, weed out the parts you don’t want to use and then press on the design.

Both are super easy. 


Where to buy Cricut Infusible Ink?

Currently, You can only buy Cricut Infusible Ink online in 2 places

  1. Cricut Online
  2. Michaels Online

There are quite a few items you can grab to get going with invisible ink.

Does Infusible Ink work with Cotton?

No, you have to use Cricuts special line of materials for the transfer to stick. My opinion is that this system is very similar to sublimation, however, it is more for the small time at home crafter. Or the crafter who can’t afford or doesn’t have space for yet another machine or tool.

Starting June 21 through October 1 you will only be able to shop Michael’s Exclusively for Cricut Infusible Inks. October 2nd they will be available everywhere else too.

And now for my very first project!

I decided to update a design I had done previously and then use the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets to make me a new shirt. As you can see I made a few boo boos, check out the video to see what not to do next time.

I am amazed at how bright and vibrant the colors are. You can see in the video that it looks quite dull when you open the sheet up. But look at how pretty it is!

I can’t wait to do more with it! Check out the step by step instructions below.

I did a video on how to use the Cricut Design Space slice tool to print and cut, and it was brought to my attention that I left a few ant questions unanswered. So I decided to come back on and do a second video and show you how I did this awesome shirt from start to finish.
