Announcing the EasyPress 2

Cricut Announces EasyPress 2: More Projects. More Materials. More Possibilities.

July 30th, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

Today, during Cricut’s 2018 Mountain Make-A-Thon, Ashish Arora, Cricut CEO, announced the next generation of its ground-breaking Cricut EasyPress line, Cricut EasyPress™ 2. With the speed of a heat press and the convenience of an iron, EasyPress 2 comes in three sizes that offer flawless results to make almost any iron-on project in 60 seconds or less. EasyPress 2 gives you projects you’ll be proud of every time.

“When we launched Cricut EasyPress last summer, our goal was to make the iron-on process seamless for makers that gives them a better solution than what’s currently in the market: a bulky heat press or a home iron with unreliable and inconsistent heat settings. EasyPress 2 takes our mission to a whole new level with technology improvements and two new sizes in addition to our popular 9”x9” size that expands the capabilities of what people can make.” -- Ashish Arora, Cricut CEO

More Projects. More Materials. More Possibilities.

Cricut EasyPress 2 supports a broader range of materials and sizes of iron-on projects with higher temperature settings, faster heat-up times and a thicker heat plate design for more uniform heating for long-lasting results.

Heats up Faster. And Higher.

EasyPress 2 heats more quickly -- up to 25% faster -- and can reach up to 400 degrees (F) to achieve amazing, long-lasting results for your iron-on projects.

Now 3 Sizes for All Projects.

Choose the right EasyPress 2 for the types of projects you love to make most. EasyPress 2 comes in three sizes: 6”x7”, think Onesies, baby bibs, cosmetic bags. Our original 9”x9”, think T-shirts and tote bags. And, 10”x12”, think BIG. Blankets, beach umbrellas, banners.

Perfectly Petite & Mobile.

Make perfect small-scale projects without working around seams. With a 6”x7” heat plate that heats up in just over a minute, make smaller projects in short order. And, don’t forget a new 8”x10” EasyPress mat because “it’s all about that base!”

EasyPress 2 Announcement

The Go-to Medium.

The medium size EasyPress 2 comes with a 9” x 9” heating plate, our classic size. It’s perfect for your essential everyday projects. It heats in just over 2 minutes, unlike traditional heat presses that take between 7 and eighteen minutes. And, again, use it with a 12”x12” or larger 20”x16” mat depending on your project design.

Jumbo Size for Full Coverage.

Now … just what you’ve been waiting for … make large-scale iron-on projects in just one press. Our new larger EasyPress 2 has a 12”x 10” heating plate for your big bold projects! Better yet, it heats in just over 3 minutes. Use with the 12”x12” EasyPress mat for “inside jobs” when you need a mat to fit in your base or the 20”x16” for that big job.

EasyPress 2 Announcement

Matching Mats.

EasyPress 2 Announcement

Match your mat size to each EasyPress 2 for professional iron-on results. Use the larger mats for full-coverage or a smaller mat if you need a raised surface or just the perfect pad for your choice of EasyPress 2. Change up the mats depending on your preference and project size.

A Beautiful Bright New Raspberry Color.

EasyPress 2 Announcement

  1. Everything made smaller is always so cute.. i want that little one just because its cute, lol..and yes good size for small items..

  2. I was literally getting ready to buy a easy press today but I don’t necessarily need it right now so I think I’ll wait. But I do have a question. With this 12×10 – can you still do t-shirts with it? Or would you need both sizes?

  3. I am sooo glad I waited! I love the bigger easy press and the color is gorgeous. This will be a must have!

  4. The first easy press was an option for me because I was able to get it on sale. I am disappointed that the prices are so high on the new models. For these prices you can buy a large heat press. I would suggest lowering the price considerably. If you add the price of a maker plus the Easy presses your close to $1000. That price tag makes it a very expensive hobby for many to afford.

  5. Oh my goodness!! This has just made my awful Monday better! I was just discussing the need for a larger easy press!!! On the projects that I usually make, I am always needing to press twice, due to the size. The larger easy press is going to work wonders!! The only downfall, is that the prices are very high! It may take me months to save up for it, but hopefully it will get purchased! Way to go Cricut!

  6. So happy there is a smaller version. I have some limitations with my arms and this looks much lighter–YEAH!!!

  7. I just bought my Cricut easy press last month because it was on sale for 129.00 but I haven’t used it so I better return it and buy the new one. I think I like the biggest one but the price is too much maybe I will wait till it go on sale after a year.

  8. Love the color! To think I just got the original easy press!!! Need to sell that one so I get the bigger one!! Nice job!!!

  12. Once again Cricut has gone and “improved” an item, which although I understand it still makes me upset. What about those of us who jumped on the bandwagon and immediately bought the original Easy Press? We are stuck with an outdated machine that is not as efficient as these new ones are! While I love the innovation of Cricuts engineers and the idea that they are only trying to make things better for us crafters I still am upset that I spent so much on a product only to see it “improved” with in a short time after I purchased it. I know there is no easy answer to this as Cricut like other companies are out to make money as well as assist crafters with their projects. BUT in the interest of fairness, Cricut should take the older models not only of the easy press but of cricut machines in as trade ins towards the price of a new one. There are many of us who “just purchased something with hard earned dollars” only to find that within months our machines are outdated. I enjoy my Cricut tools but it is somewhat of a “bummer” to be the one with the old stuff and left to feel like ones tools are not up to par. Just my opinion people-so please don’t spam me with horrible responses. I will continue to use my original Maker and my original other tools until they break down. Thanks for listening.

    • I feel you on this one since I too have recently saved up for it and now to find out that a new improved one is coming out it’s like really are you kidding me. I am in the window of returning it but at the same time what I am to do in the meantime waiting for it and then pay more in price. Sometimes it hard to stay in line with the products but this always happens to me and then with the maker I feel like soon there will be a new one this again will happen to me.

  13. I think this is a good product, but after buying my maker, I’ll have to wait awhile so I can afford it. Will the big one go on special? For Christmas maybe…..
