road trip 2021 t-shirt

Cricut® Infusible Ink™ is cool technology that results in permanent and professional transfers. The easy to use material cuts beautifully with your Cricut® machine and use your Easy Press™ to heat transfer! Start planning your road trip for 2021!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: For the French version, detach the design and remove the words.

Step 2

If needed, size the design to fit your shirt.

Step 3

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 4

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose your material.

Step 6

Place the Infusible Ink™ material, ink-side up, onto your lightgrip cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 7

Once your machine is done cutting, unload your mat and carefully remove your material. Use scissors to cut your design from the transfer sheet.

Step 8

Next, remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.
TIP: Weeding is very easy with Infusible Ink™ material! You can bend the material and the pieces will lift. Weeding can pretty much be done with your hands. However, the weeding tool makes it much easier with the iron-on material.

Step 9

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.
TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here for an interactive guide.

Step 10

Lay your shirt on top of your EasyPress™ mat and smooth it out with your hands. Now, insert a piece of cardstock inside your shirt to prevent bleeding to the back as well as protect your mat from any excess ink.
TIP: Use a lint roller over the area where you want your design to remove any dust.

Step 11

Place a sheet of butcher paper (included with your transfer sheets) on top of your shirt and preheat the fabric for 15 seconds to remove any moisture.

Step 12

Remove the butcher paper from the top of your shirt, place your transfer ink design on your shirt (ink-side down) and replace the butcher paper over your design.

Step 13

Carefully place your EasyPress™ over your design. Hold in place with gentle pressure.
TIP: Be careful to keep the EasyPress™ very still on top of your design. Shifting the design in anyway can cause unfavorable results, such as “shadowing”.

Step 14

After 45 seconds of heat, carefully remove your EasyPress™. Again, try not to move your design. Let it cool for about a minute or so and then remove the backing from your shirt.
TIP: You want to remove the backing from your transfer sheet in one smooth action rather than slowly removing as you would iron-on material.

Step 15

To create the tie-dye look, submerge you shirt in water and ring out excess.

Step 16

Use plastic wrap and masking to tape off your infusible ink design, then place your shirt on a large piece of scrap cardboard and wrinkle your shirt.

Step 17

In a well-ventilated area, spray with mint fabric spray and let it set for about 24 hours.
TIP: If desired, repeat for the back.

Step 18

Remove the masking tape and plastic wrap; then wash and dry your shirt.
