Why You Need a Cricut EasyPress 2

This post is brought to you by Cricut.

Good morning! How was your weekend? Amazing, I hope! :) Has this year flown by for anyone else? I’m having a hard time believing that November is already here! So crazy! Soon Christmas will be here! Eek! Have you thought about what YOU want for Christmas yet? I know crafting goodies are always on the top of my list. Annnnnnd if you haven’t added a Cricut EasyPress 2 to your craft room, you totally should add it to your list! Let me tell you why! :)

With the EasyPress 2, you will get professional iron-on results in 60 seconds or less every.single.time. Cricut EasyPress 2 delivers fast and foolproof results that really stick, wash after wash after wash. Annnnd now the EasyPress 2 comes in 3 sizes. So fun! From the small petite machine to the large machine for those big projects, you are sure to find the perfect one for your iron-on needs! For reference, the original Cricut EasyPress only came in the 9” x 9” size. The EasyPress 2 comes in that size as well, and it also comes in a smaller & larger size. You can check them all out at the following links.

6” x 7”: Find it here. Perfect for baby onesies, bibs, napkins, baby shoes.

9” x 9”: Find it here. Perfect for t-shirts, medium size totes, table runners.

12” x 10”: Find it here. Perfect for large totes, pillows, banners, blankets.

All three sizes have an advanced heat plate design. The heating surface is ceramic-coated and two unique heating elements to create edge-to-edge heat for flawless heat transfer. Before I got my EasyPress I had so many problems using iron on. It would either take forever to adhere or come off as soon as I washed it. I was so frustrated and avoided using iron-on most of the time. Now all of that has changed! I love iron-on & use it all the time! It’s amazing! You can see some of my iron-on projects here.

Using the Cricut EasyPress 2 is incredibly simple. I love the Interactive Quick Reference Guide! Enter the material & type of iron-on & then enter the time and temperature on your EasyPress 2, and press go – that’s it!

The EasyPress 2 heats up to 400°F. Annnnnd it heats up super fast….no waiting around!

The EasyPress 2 is safe and easy to use. Each EasyPress 2 comes with it’s own insulated safety base that keeps the heat plate safe and protected. The EasyPress 2 also has an auto shutoff feature that turns it off after 10 minutes of inactivity. I love that! I don’t have to worry if I left my EasyPress on when I leave the house. ;)


It’s lightweight, portable, easy to store & compatible with most major brands of heat-transfer and iron-on vinyl of all types from glitter to pattern to smooth. The EasyPress 2 doesn’t have a large footprint like a standard heat press. You are sure to find the perfect spot for one in your craft room. :)

You can make baby onesies, t-shirts, library bags, shopping totes, canvas shoes, blankets & more. You can even try it on wood like I did right here!

The EasyPress 2 is perfect complement to your Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2 machine or really any cutting machine. Do you own a Silhouette? Awesome! Then make sure you add an EasyPress 2 to the mix & see what more you can do! Design and cut your own iron-on images, then adhere them perfectly to your surface. It’s as easy as that. :)

  1. Thanks for the post. Unfortunately for me I just purchase the original before these newer models came out. It would be nice if these companies had trade in programs or something because the average crafter can not afford to get the latest and greatest every time.

  2. Your work is time-consuming but you know that it is well done!
