Infusible Ink T-shirt Idea | I’m Just Here For The Recess
What is Cricut Infusible Ink?
Infusible Ink is a new system created by Cricut, that is not a whole lot different from sublimation as far as a finished project.
The biggest differences between these Inks and Sublimation are there is no need for any extra equipment such as printers and special inks.
The ink comes either as a transfer that feels a lot like a medium-weight cardstock or pens that you use to draw in your machine.
But just like sublimation, the design is dyed right into the fabric, so the design embeds into the fabric and doesn’t sit on top of the fabric.
And the best thing is just like sublimation, the infusible ink once pressed is likely going to last longer than the actual shirt.
What Materials are Infusible Ink Compatible?
There are a number of base materials that you can use with these sheets. The thing you must remember is that these sheets will not work on 100% cotton. they have to be at least a blend of polyester. But the good thing is that you can find them in almost anything.
From tote bags to Cricut mugs. If you check through the blog, I have done many different items using Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer sheets.
Infusible Ink T-shirt Ideas are endless, there are so many different ways that you can make all of your t-shirts unique. Infusible Inks won’t wrinkle or crack, unlike printable heat transfer paper.
What Tools Will I Need to Use Cricut Infusible Inks?
- Cricut Machine
- Cricut EasyPress (I recommend the largest one if you will be doing mostly children and adult projects. You need to be able to press the entire transfer in 1 application)
- EasyPress Mat
- Heat Resistant Tape
- Cricut Blanks
- Infusible Ink Transfers –Watercolor Splash and Carbon Fiber
Can This I’m Only Here For The Recess SVG be used with heat transfer vinyl?
Absolutely it can! There is nothing different about the files if you are doing an Infusible Ink Project. The only difference between vinyl and infusible ink is the products and supplies.
Just cut the shirt design out like you normally would. But instead of the inks, use heat press vinyl and press it according to the settings.
