Infusible Ink FAQs
I invited you guys to spam me with all of your Infusible Ink questions and I got some common questions that I thought would be helpful to all so I’m rounding them up here.
Q: Can I apply Infusible Ink to any type T-shirt/coasters or does it have to be the Cricut blanks? Have you tried using other blanks?
A: All of the Cricut blanks (apparel, totes and coasters) are specially developed and optimized for use with Infusible Ink so using any other type of blanks will not yield the same result and/or durability as using the Cricut blanks. I have not personally tried using Infusible Ink with any blanks other than the Cricut ones.
Q: Do I have to use an EasyPress to apply Infusible Ink or can I just use an iron? If so, does it need to be an EasyPress 2 or can I use my original EasyPress?
A: The problem with using an iron with Infusible Ink is you can’t control the exact temperature of the iron which is key to the success of Infusible Ink projects. The EasyPress 2 is ideal because of the ultra high temperature it can reach, but you can absolutely use Infusible Ink with the original EasyPress. For best results with any heat transfer project, always reference the EasyPress Heat Transfer Guide (I printed it out and have it on the shelf right next to my EasyPress 2 so I can always have it at the ready).
Q: Should you wash the apparel blanks before applying Infusible Ink?
A: Unlike regular Iron-on projects, you DO NOT want to pre-wash the Infusible Ink blanks. The only prep they need is a very thorough lint-rolling (all steps are included in the packaging and you can also check them out here).
Q: Can you put an infusible ink design on both the front and back of the same shirt?
A: Yes! Just follow the same steps on both the front and back of the shirt.
Q: What’s the difference between Infusible Ink and Iron-on vinyl?
A: The differences are many. As the name suggests, Infusible Ink is infused into the material it is bonded to. There is no difference in texture, is completely stretchable and the design will stretch with it and is crack and peel proof. We still love our iron-on, too!
Q: Do the t-shirts feel like regular cotton tees? Do they shrink? How’s the sizing?
A: No. They don’t feel like any other tees. They feel glorious! They are so soft and buttery that I would buy them just to wear as-is even if I didn’t use Infusible Ink on them. They do not shrink but in my opinion they run a touch small, so if you go back and forth between sizes or are in between sizes I would go with the larger size.
Q: I don’t live by a Michael’s, can I buy Infusible Ink anywhere else?
A: Not yet! The launch of Infusible Ink is a special partnership between Cricut and Michael’s! I’ll keep you posted when it’s available elsewhere but in the meantime, you can always order Infusible Ink at michaels.com if you don’t have a location near you.

Can you use the mini heat press with infusible transfer sheets on coasters?
Hi Laura! Unfortunately not. It doesn’t get hot enough to infuse the ink.
How many projects can you usually make with a pack of markers?
Hi Myriam! It really depends on how many you use and how much you use per project. I’m sorry I can’t give you an exact number.
Lisa Watson says
Can you use infusible ink a regular iron and a store bough T-shirt?
Hi Lisa! You can use a regular iron as long as it gets very hot. You can use a store bought t-shirt as long as it’s 80% polyester. I haven’t been able to find a shirt like that unless it’s an athletic-type material which you can’t use with infusible ink or iron-on because it would burn the material. I hope that helps! 🙂
Those are some very creative infusible ink designs! I’m very impressed! I LOVE the HOME coasters you made! I’m going to make some too
Thanks so much Shelli! I’d love to see them when you’re done! Which state are you going to use?
