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 Cricut Infusible Ink and Sublimation are there is no need for any more equipment.

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 there is no raise in the design if that makes sense.

And the best thing is just like sublimation, the infusible ink once pressed is likely going to last longer than the actual shirt.

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 differences are in the infusible ink 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.
