What is a Cricut EasyPress?

Not Fun, Right?
The Cricut Easypress 2 machine is designed to offer professional iron-on results in a minute or less. This machine combines the speed of a conventional heat press and the convenience of a typical iron box to deliver fast and foolproof results that will last long even after repeated washes. Its evenly heated plate and easy to use controls put it head and shoulders above most iron-on boxes on the market. It rocks variable temperature control settings up to 400°F (205°C) making it ideal for both large and layered projects.
On top of that, the Easypress 2 comes equipped with a handful of safety features such as auto-shutoff and an insulated resting base.

How the Cricut Easypress works
To power up the device, all you have to do is press the power button to the left of the display. With the device on, you need to find a firm, flat and heat-resistance surface. With the pressing surface in place, set the timer and temperature to match your project needs.
To adjust the timer button, use the +/- buttons to specify the desired heating time for your iron-on project. Upon pressing the temperature button, the machine will begin to heat up; use the +/- buttons to either increase or decrease temperature. Note that the Cricut device displays an orange color when adjusting the temperature and will turn green once the desired setting is achieved.
It usually takes roughly two minutes and five seconds for the device to heat up from 0 to 400°F. The device will automatically beep to signal it is ready for use. Place your shirt or other base material on top of a silicone foam mat and pre-heat it for 3 to 5 seconds to eliminate wrinkles. Place your vinyl design on the base material. Remove the Easypress 2 from its base and it directly on the vinyl decal.
Then press the green Cricut button to initiate the timer. Hold the machine in place and apply gentle pressure while pressing until the device beeps. Remember to keep the machine still during the entire process. With the pressing complete, return the press back to its stand then wait for the liner to cool down before removing it from the heat transfer vinyl.
