Mugs are super easy to make using Cricut® Infusible Ink™ and a MugPress™. You will get permanent and professional results with this affordable and vibrant technology.
Step 1

First, click here for the design link in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

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

Step 3

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.
TIP: This step isn’t necessary if you are cutting a simple shape where direction doesn’t matter. However, if you are cutting a design with words or a shape where direction matters, be sure to “Mirror” your image.

Step 4

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

Step 5

Once this is done, place your Infusible Ink™ material, ink-side up, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 6

Weed excess material from around your design.
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.

Step 7

Press the “on” icon button to preheat your MugPress™.
TIP: If this is the first time you are using your MugPress™, be sure to use the small white USB cord included to set up your machine.

Step 8

Place your design onto your mug where desired with the ink side facing your mug. Use heat resistant tape if needed.

Step 9

Fold a piece of butcher paper three times and wrap around your mug to protect the inner walls of your MugPress™.

Step 10

Slide your mug inside your MugPress™. Push the lever down to start the heating process.
TIP: Watch the lights on the top of your machine light up as it progresses.

Step 11

Once you hear the beep, lift the lever and remove your mug. Place on an EasyPress™ mat to completely cool.

Step 12

Remove the Infusible Ink™ transfer sheet to reveal your design!
