Hey All! It’s Sydney, one of Collin’s sidekicks!

Have you ever seen a shirt with a cute saying or graphic on Pinterest or while at the mall, and then saw the price tag and thought to yourself, “Man I could make this for a lot less”? Well, I was able to make them for less by cutting out iron-on material with my Cricut machine. The problem? They sometimes didn’t last very long in the wash. 😔

When I ironed on the designs, no matter how hard I pushed on my iron, the designs sometimes started to peel after 5 or 6 washes. I loved creating fun shirts for my kids (and myself), but I wanted to wear those shirts more than a handful of times. I started researching what I could do/use to make the designs last.


The Cricut EasyPress is a game-changer for long-lasting results.That’s when I decided to try the Cricut EasyPress. Unlike an iron, the heat is distributed evenly across the EasyPress, and it holds the temperature longer, and gets hotter than an iron. Plus it’s SUPER easy to use. You just push the power button, set the temperature (you can find the list of temperatures for each type of iron on and material here), set the time, and press.


Now the designs stay on strong, and the kids actually grow out of the shirts I make. AND I can save them for their younger brothers and sisters too! 😍


Plus… I can use the EasyPress on other projects too:

As a wannabe crafty mom, it makes me happy that I can quickly and easily make projects that not only look good but last, too!

If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift you’ll not only love but will use on a regular basis, an EasyPress might be one to add to the list! Even better, use promo code ANNIVERSARY to get free shipping on orders $99 or more.

    Is that your baby? She’s a doll!

    • Sydney

      She is; thanks so much Dana! I think she’s pretty cute too (but I may be a little biased 😉 )

  2. Stacy

    I have the same issue also, designs start to peel off… You might just convince me to buy the press!!!!!

    • Sydney

      Isn’t it so frustrating Stacy?! Since I started using the EasyPress about 6 months ago I haven’t had one design peel – I love it!!

  3. Diana

    Omg!! What a cute little girl!!!!

    • Sydney

      Ah thank you Diana!

  4. April Rose

    What would be a good Cricut to start this type of t-shirt project?

    • Sydney

      Hey April Rose! If you are just wanting to cut iron on vinyl (for shirts), vinyl, paper, cardstock, etc., I would go with either the Explore Air or Explore Air 2. But if you want to cut fabric or thicker material, I would go with the Maker. Let me know if you have any other questions… I love my Cricut machines and use them for EVERYTHING!

  5. sara

    How do you wash the shirts and how often? I put everything in the dryer. Can you do this?

    • Sydney

      I always wash my shirts inside out and when I was using just a regular iron I could use the dryer but they would sometimes start to peel after 5 or 6 washes. With the EasyPress, I have a shirt I’ve probably washed and dried 15 times and it hasn’t peeled!

      • sara

        Nice! Thank you

        • Sydney

          You’re welcome!

  6. Linda

    Love my easy press!!!

    • Sydney

      Doesn’t it make applying iron on vinyl So much easier Linda?!

  7. Christy

    I don’t have any experience at all with the Cricut machines. For the Easy Press, would I need a specific type of software to make the designs first or are the designs purchased in a store? Just not sure how it all works, but I have been creating T-shirt quotes and ideas in my head for years!

    • Sydney

      Hey Christy! To do the designs with the Cricut machines, you use Cricut’s Design Space which is online or available on iTunes or Google Play. But Cricut just released some new Iron On Designs that come pre-made and all you need is an iron or EasyPress to apply! Hope this helps 🙂

  8. GotItTogetherish

    How awesome! And such a cutie in the pix!!

    • Sydney

      Ah thank you!

  9. Tonik

    Does anyone know what the pros n cons are of having this machine bs the silhouette?

  10. Jen

    I’m still getting familiar with my easy press. Have you used it for the print then cut iron on lite? I can’t get my printable to stick:( if you have what temp and time do you use?

    • Olivia

      Hi Jen- I am not that familiar with the printable because I’ve never used it, but I wanted to say that you should YouTube some tutorials on it and see if you can figure it out. Also- there are TONS of FaceBook groups about Cricut-ing. 🙂 I have learned SO much from YouTube and FB I just thought I’d share!

      • KGD

        Olivia- which are your favorite FB Cricut groups?

    • Kathryn

      Printable iron for light must be 1… mirrored when cut and 2… pressed at 375 for 30 seconds… so much hotter than regular HTV. I couldn’t get it to stick well when I had the easy press but I have a heat press now and it is so much better!

      • jen

        Thanks, I’ll try that temp. and hopefully it will work. I was getting it too hot or not enough:/ I really want to love it, but it makes me want to send it back when i end up pulling out my old iron.

  11. Kimberly

    Oh my son likes making up designs. This would be great for him!

  12. Di

    Is the easy press only compatible with Cricut or could it be used with a silhouette as well?

    • Renee

      it doesn’t matter whether it’s a Cricut or silhouette. It’s basically a mini heat press. It works great!

  13. Emilytwinmom

    We have a silhouette, similar to a cricut, and we got a heat press 2016 black friday. Best purchase ever!!! We have made shirts for 2 kids pday parties now, got the shirts free at JCP with the $10/$10 coupons and the hpv black is super cheap. We cut it on the silhouette, press it with the heat press, and boom lasts a lifetime. A few of our party guests from last year’s january party wore their shirts weekly and they are still looking new!!!

    • Diana

      Emilytwinmom – what kind of heat press do you have?!

  14. Holly Conner

    I had an easy press but was not happy and returned it. I get much better results with a standard iron and a mini.

    I did several shirts and hoodies, single color and layered. The easy press was nice in that it was compact and heated quickly. But as far as applying designs: I found myself having to use an extreme amount of pressure and still having to repeat pressing up to 5 times in order to get a good transfer.

    Just my 2 cents. For the money, a standard heat press with actual pressure is about the same expense. I don’t do too many shirts so I make my regular iron work. Never had peeling or flaking.

  15. Shoppingfan

    I’m about to try to make a shirt next week and will get my iron happy hubby to apply it for me. If he’s no good then the Easy Press will be my next purchase indeed!

  16. Jen

    Omgosh I have that same red apple but have no way to get my daughters teachers name on it!! If anyone would be willing to make a simple one just like the one pictured please email me. Would be willing to pay you via PayPal for it. Thank you so much, really appreciate it!! Jenifer47203@yahoo.com

  17. Ginger T

    Question? Are you pressing on only the letters/ cutouts or is it the whole sheet the design was printed on? Maybe post an inside-out pic as well…anything helps and yes, I’m already planning my next dozen designs 🤣
