Introducing Infusible Ink: An all new way to get professional quality heat transfers that last a lifetime

4 June 2019

We are excited to announce Infusible Ink – an all-new system of Cricut DIY products that make it possible to achieve pro-level heat transfers at home for the first time. Now you can create beautiful, bold designs that look truly professional on your T-shirts, totes and more. What makes Cricut Infusible Ink so special is that it looks store-bought but it’s infused by YOU.

What is Infusible Ink?

Unlike the vinyl or heat transfer vinyl (HTV) process, where artwork is attached on top of a base material using adhesive, an Infusible Ink transfer actually becomes one with the material itself. The results are bright, beautiful, seamlessly smooth custom transfers that are peel-proof, flake-proof, and wash-proof. Watch what happened when we let a few Cricut DIYers create with Infusible Ink products for the first time.

What Can You Make? Here’s Some Infusible Ink Project Inspiration.

Bring on the inspirational quotes or the inside jokes. With Infusible Ink, you can make exactly what you want exactly the way you want it – and create projects that truly endure. Give them as gifts for that “I can’t believe you made this” reaction, or keep them all to yourself as your own little secret. For inspiration, here are a few amazing new projects you can find in Design Space®. And, check out below a few projects made with Infusible Ink-compatible Totes, T-shirts and Coaster blanks:

How Infusible Ink Works

While the Infusible Ink process is similar to other heat transfer methods, it’s also unique in critical ways. To achieve the results we promise, it is essential to carefully follow our directions. Also, it’s important to note that depending on your project, the devil will be in every last detail, so even if you’re an experienced DIYer, indulge us and keep a “beginner’s mind” as you take on your first (several) Infusible Ink projects. You will be so glad you did! At a high level, though, here’s what to expect:

  • 1. Choose your materials. Select Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets or Infusible Ink Pens & Markers and a compatible Cricut blank.
  • 2. Make your design. Use Design Space and your Cricut cutting machine to cut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets or draw with Infusible Ink Pens & Markers using laser copy paper.
Make sure you gather all of your supplies before starting any Infusible Ink project. Then – yes, we’ll say it again – follow our instructions carefully. There are a few essential steps that will make or break your project success, and depending on which compatible blank you choose, the steps may be different. Because Infusible Ink transfers are truly permanent, attention to every last detail is key! Here’s our one-stop Infusible Ink shopping list:
