Cricut EasyPress: Recommended settings

As additional base materials are tested and new iron-on products are released, this list of recommended settings for Cricut EasyPress will be updated. Below are two charts. To view the chart of recommended settings, click the pressing surface you're using. 

 

What does "warm peel" or "cold peel" mean?

The "peel" type tells you when to remove the clear iron-on liner once the iron-on design has been applied to your base material. In the charts below, you'll find a recommendation for when to peel the liner based on your iron-on type.  

Cold Peel: Allow to cool completely before removing liner. Removing liner while still warm or hot may cause the iron-on design to stretch or warp as the liner is being removed. 

Warm Peel: Remove liner while design is warm to the touch, but not hot. This is when removing the liner will be easiest. If you allow it to cool completely, it will just take a little more effort to remove the liner. 

 

Iron-on type and base material settings undergo extensive testing. However, base materials may vary by manufacturer. To ensure best results, we recommend spot-testing your base material with the recommended settings first. 

 

These settings are recommended for using iron-on with the Cricut EasyPress. If using a household iron or other heat press, your settings may be different than those listed below. When using an iron or other heat press, refer to the manufacturer's recommended settings.
