HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE CRICUT EASYPRESS 2:
New sizes – there are now 3 sizes to choose from depending on the type of projects you want to create. If you love making t-shirts in all sizes, the large EasyPress would be a great fit. It's big enough to easily iron those larger shirts without requiring too many passes. On the other hand, if you plan to make mostly small projects like baby-onesies, greeting cards or decorated purses or totes, the small EasyPress 2 is for you. If you like making all kinds of projects (hello, that's me!), the standard sized EasyPress 2 is a great all-around tool.
Faster heating – the EasyPress 2 heats up in 60 seconds or less.
Hotter heat settings – with a higher, precise temperature option (400°F (205°C). , you can make even more projects.

For T-shirt iron ons I would only use Cricut brand of iron on vinyl for your project needs. It’s easy to use and most importantly the quality is unsurpassed.
You’ll start all projects in Cricut design space, here you’ll be inspired and choose your final design. When you start to cut, make sure to mirror the cuts as this is t-shirt vinyl, resize if you need to fit the front of your shirt. Cut your pieces and then use the weeding tools to remove all excess. Word of advice, DON’T throw out anything, you could possibly use it for other projects.
Make sure there is a towel underneath your t-shirt and, you’re ready to create! Before you turn your machine on, I like to position the iron on the t-shirt and then place the machine (NOT HEATED) on top of it just so I feel comfortable when the time comes, I can align everything then.
Now, turn your machine on and set the heat, if you don’t know what temperature is needed, don’t worry, a manual comes with the Easy Press to guide you. Position your vinyl on the shirt with the carrier sheet up and place the Easy Press on top. Hit the button to start your countdown, move over to the other portions of your design, press the button again, and repeat the heating. It is okay to overlap during this process and heat some areas for more time.
The EasyPress instructions recommend flipping your item over and pressing it from the backside. Repeat the same process of heating and pressing down on the back, allow your entire design to cool off before trying to remove the top sheet. The moment you peel off that sheet get ready to be mesmerized by your creation, it’s going to be spectacular.
