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!”
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.
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.
This summer everything came up roses with our new Rose Maker and Flamingo Pearl Explore Air 2. We love this beautiful new raspberry color and if you love a pop of color in your craft room, the EasyPress 2 is perfect for you!
Cricut EasyPress 2 will be available this Fall on Cricut.com and in your favorite craft retail and online stores. EasyPress mats are available now on Cricut.com and at retailers in-store or online.
