The Cricut EasyPress mat is ideal for flawless iron-on transfers for with your Cricut EasyPress! 

  • Innovative construction eliminates moisture and directs heat to the iron-on design

Tips

  • Mat is one-sided. Ensure the correct side is facing up while pressing. This allows the mat layers to function as designed for flawless transfers: 

    • Durable, heat-resistant cover. 
    • Felt layer wicks moisture
    • Foil layer reflects heat back to iron-on design, helping to protect work surface
    • Silicone sponge layer insulates work surface and functions as a pressing pillow which can absorb seams such as those on onesies, zippers, etc.
    • Bottom layer acts as a protective barrier .
  • EasyPress temperature settings for use with the EasyPress Mat are different than settings for use with other pressing surfaces. Click here for EasyPress Mat Recommended Settings. 
  • Mat is very flexible; not stiff. 
  • Keep the EasyPress mat dry. If necessary, wipe clean with a damp cloth. 
  • Surface of mat will get very hot during use.
  • Store flat (not rolled or folded) for best results.
  • Mat is not microwave safe.
  • Mat is intended for momentary application of heat as per instructions. Heat left unattended may cause damage or discoloration. 

 

 

Do I have to use an EasyPress Mat with my EasyPress? 

Using an EasyPress Mat is ideal, but it’s easy enough to create the right iron-on environment for your transfers using items you probably already have at home.

 

What to look for

  • A firm, flat surface for your foundation. A waist-high table is perfect.

    • Great examples you have at home: craft table, kitchen table, wood table, butcher block, marble or wood cutting board.

  • A suitable protective mat/layer. The layer on top of your foundation must be heat-resistant, have good insulation properties, and wick moisture.

    • The ideal example you likely have at home:a fluffy cotton bath towel with even texture (no embedded patterns), folded so it’s about 3 inches thick. View this chart of recommended settings when using a folded towel. 

 

What to avoid:

  • Ironing board. It has an uneven surface and it’s not solid or sturdy enough to allow for gentle pressure.

  • Corrugated cardboard. When pressed, it creates an uneven surface.

  • Silicone baking mats/aluminum foil. Neither provide insulation and both get dangerously hot.
