Cricut Mug Press – an introduction

4 March 2021

Important: Cricut Mug Press is currently only available in the United States and Canada. It will be available in other countries later in 2021. We do not recommend purchasing or using a Mug Press sold in the United States or Canada, even with an adapter. The difference in power and voltage can damage your Mug Press and void your product warranty. Using the Mug Press at a voltage level other than that for which it was designed can be dangerous.

DIY Mugs in minutes

So, you’re interested in a new way to make mugs? Cricut Mug Press™ is the perfect option for you! With Cricut Mug Press, it’s easy to make pro-quality, personalized mugs for any occasion.

Cricut Mug Press works with Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer SheetsPens & Markers so you can make the perfect gift for family, friends, teachers, neighbours, colleagues, grandparents, mug collectors, coffee lovers, and others.

No guessing

Patent-pending heat plate design applies the optimal amount of heat and pressure with easy, one-touch settings. One button starts the transfer, LEDs track the progress of your press, and a beep lets you know when it’s done.

Compatible with Infusible Ink

Unlike the iron-on or HTV process, where artwork is attached on top of a base material using adhesive, an Infusible Ink transfer becomes one with the mug itself. The results are bright, beautiful, seamlessly smooth transfers that never flake, peel, wrinkle, or crack. And, they’re dishwasher friendly.

Thoughtful safety features

Cricut Mug Press is carefully designed to be beautiful and safe. An insulated case protects your work surface. You’ll also love the auto-off feature for peace of mind.

Perfect, personalised gifts

Customise with a name, a one-of-a-kind design, special dates, and more, to make the absolute perfect gift for loved ones!

How it works

First, create your personalized mug design in Design Space, using our free Mug Design Setup Project. From there, you’ll cut or draw your design with your Cricut cutting machine using Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets or Markers.

Then, adhere the design to your Cricut mug or a sublimation-compatible mug.

Insert your mug, lower the lever, and let the press do the rest! The advanced heat plate applies the perfect time and temperature settings, so you don’t have to think about that.

For best results, we’ve outlined step-by-step instructions in the Cricut Heat Guide.

When all LEDs in the progress bar are illuminated, and you hear a beep, your mug is ready! Lift the lever to release the heat plate, and carefully remove the mug by the handle. Let your mug cool completely on a heat-resistant surface or Cricut EasyPress Mat before handling.

Once cool, peel away Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets or laser copy paper to reveal your mug masterpiece!

In the meantime…

The Cricut Mug Press will be available in the UK & Ireland later in 2021. In the meantime, you can create other projects with the Infusible Ink transfer sheets! You can customise different types of Cricut blanks, such as tote bags, T-shirts, cosmetic bags, cushion covers, wine bags and coasters. What will you make?
