Applying the Image with the Cricut EasyPress Mini

  1. Position the mat or a towel on a flat surface.
  2. On your EasyPress, set temperature and time by following the chart for the type of vinyl and material being used. You may use this EasyPress Interactive Quick Reference Guide.
  3. If your apron is 100% cotton and you’re using Patterned Iron-On Vinyl, we recommend setting the EasyPress Mini to medium heat.
  4. Determine where you will be placing the image. Preheat the apron in that spot for 5 seconds. Preheating preps the fabric for the vinyl and also helps remove any excess moisture before application. Moreover, the preheating process further removes any creases and wrinkles from the fabric.
  5. Place the cut image on to the apron with the shiny side up.
  6. Temporarily hold the cut image in place with heat transfer tape.
  7. While constantly moving the EasyPress Mini as your press, press the image on the apron for 25 seconds.
  8. Turn the apron upside down and apply heat for an additional 15 seconds. Allow the vinyl to cool.
  9. Once the vinyl cools, carefully peel off the plastic part of the vinyl and discard.
  10. Take note to never place an iron or the EasyPress Mini directly over the vinyl without a protective plastic cover.
