Complete Cricut EasyPress Tutorial Plus Iron-On with Wood
Benefits of the EasyPress Products!
Cricut really broke the mold with the EasyPress line. They are more efficient than normal household irons, and the various sizes help with each project size.
The EasyPress Mini is much easier to use than a household iron, and has more even heat distribution.
The even distribution of heat is important to increase the lifetime of your iron-on projects. Household irons have a heat source in the center not all the way throughout.
EasyPress v. Iron
The EasyPress Mini has a precision tip to reach smaller areas easier; however, unlike the larger sizes it has three heat settings and no timer.
Mini v. Others
The project can be as small as desired, but Cricut suggests no larger than 2x the mini plate. The mini is meant to be moved around the project where the full-sized are not.
The EasyPress Mini is great for adhering the seams of projects due to its small size. Adding Cricut Heat Resistant Tape will make the project more precise.
