So what is the easy press mini?
The Mini but Mighty EasyPress features the same corner-to-corner heating style that the larger EasyPresses have; however, there are some differences. The Mini features one push button with three heat settings — Low, Medium, and High. Unlike the larger EasyPress that you just place on your item, with the Mini you are encouraged to move it around as you iron-on your vinyl project so that you don’t have any creases.
What Does it Not Have?
The one thing I miss with the Mini but Mighty EasyPress is the timer option and actually seeing the temperature setting number. The timer is such a convenience and and the actual temperature data is just for comfort so that I know I’m using the right temperature depending on the project.
What Temperature Should I Use?
Cricut has recommendations for time and temperature uses per setting. Below are some guidelines but for more precise settings for each type of materials, view this Heat Transfer Guide.
Low – Use with sensitive base materials or heat-transfer materials that transfer between 255°F (125°C) – 295°F (145°C)
Medium – Use with most base materials or heat-transfer materials that transfer between 300°F (150°C) – 355°F (180°C)
High – Use with Infusible Ink materials, heavy-duty base materials, and other heat-transfer materials that transfer between 360°F (185°C) – 400°F (205°C)
How does it work, here’s my first time using it to customize Christmas Stockings.
