Easy to apply
Cricut iron-on vinyl is a thin, flexible material available in pre-cut sheets or rolls for ease of use. Each colorful layer adheres securely to its clear plastic carrier sheet backing for use on Cricut machines.
To apply vinyl, you’ll require both a heat tool and some form of protection for your project. Protective material like parchment paper or Teflon heat press sheet can serve to shield surfaces from excess heat while helping prevent carrier sheets from leaving behind markings when removed from their carrier sheets.
First, set your EasyPress or iron to the appropriate temperature using the Cricut Heat Guide as a reference point. Your specific type of vinyl and base material dictates its required pressing time and temperature setting.
