What Are Cricut Infusible Ink Transfers
Transfer papers are just a solid sheet of ink. They look like a regular sheet of vinyl but trust me they are so different in the quality you get from the craft. That way no matter the size of your project the whole sheet is able to be used to create your design.
How Exactly Does Infusible Ink Work
You find that it uses a high heat that will infuse your transfer sheets and the pen ink will become infused into your material you are using for the project. The temperature is at least 385 degrees. Depending on the texture of your base item will depend on the heat setting you need to use.
Which Cricut Machines Pair With Cricut Infusible Ink Products
Luckily you will find that you can use the Cricut Maker, Explore Air, and even the Explore Air 2 machines for using the transfer sheets and cutting the design.
Does Any Color Of Base Product Work With The Infusible Ink Pens
You will want to reach for lighter colored items. The pens are colored so you will get a colorful design to your lighter colored item. If you were to use a darker base product like a navy blue coaster, it might not be noticeable to the eye.
When Can You Purchase Infusible Ink Products In-Store
Michaels already has the Infusible Ink line available for purchase. Then other retailers will begin releasing October 1, 2019.
Do I Have To Use The Cricut’s Blanks for Infusible Ink
For now, I am saying yes. Cricut says that for the best results use their blanks. Those are coasters, shirts, tote bags and baby onesie’s at this time. Cricut has said for the most vibrant transfer and success they recommend using their blanks.
If you enjoy crafting, you might really enjoy the Cricut Infusible Ink line. I know that it has rocked my world in the quality of my crafts I am pushing out.
