Product Review: Cricut EasyPress and Project

The Cricut EasyPress has arrived! The world of Heat Transfer and Iron on materials are going to have even more of a presence in the creative world. We could not be more excited about it!

An Easier way to Press

When we first saw the EasyPress in action we were in awe! It made so much sense. Irons do not distribute heat evenly and can take a long time to ensure that the iron on materials sticks. You never know what the exact temperature could be which makes for the design to easily come off as well as not wash as well. The EasyPress is everything an iron is not, it distributes heat evenly,  has bigger surface area as well as a timer with exact heat temperature gauges to set. This is a dream come true! Your creations will stand up to more washer, longer wears and broader surfaces for heat transfers.

Our project: heat transfer on wood

We wanted to use our EasyPress on  wood since the nine inch by nine inch surface area would cover better as well as heat evenly. We gathered our supplies which centered around our aluminum planter that we discovered at Joanns Fabric  Stores. We love the way our planter turned out and it was all thanks to the Cricut EasyPress.
