Cricut Mug Press Tutorial I can’t begin to tell you how hard it was to not say anything about the Cricut Mug Press!  I had an early, first hand look at this beauty and knew it was going to be a hit the second I unboxed it! It’s compact, so easy to use and just the perfect addition to  the Cricut family!  I was worried there would be a learning curve but I was pleasantly surprised at just how easy it is to use.

The Cricut Mug Press is the newest and easiest way to make DIY and personalized mugs that will last a lifetime!  

The machine is super easy to use and only has one button making learning to use it easy.  The one-touch settings allow you  to place your mug in the machine, close the lever and the just-right temperature control applies  the perfect amount of heat and pressure to adhere your design. 

There’s even  an auto-off feature for peace of mind.

HOW DOES THE CRICUT MUG PRESS WORK?

Once you design your mug, or use one of the pre-designed templates,  you just cut your design using your favorite machine. I used my  Cricut Joy to make these.  

Once your design is cut and ready simply adhere it to the mug, insert it into the press and the machine does the rest! The one-touch setting applies the optimal amount of heat and pressure. 

The controls are easy to use. There are no time, temperature or pressure adjustments to make.

WHAT DO I USE TO MAKE MY DESIGNS? 

The Cricut Mug Press uses Infusible Ink™ Transfers to permanently transfer your designs to your mugs.  These designs become one with the mug and are dishwasher and microwave safe!  The seamless designs become a part of the mug and will last the life of the mug.
