Question Asked:

Hello, I really like the look of the Cricut EasyPress 2. I've seen a used one for sale. Mostly I want to make some cute baby grow outfits with fun slogans for my friends. But I was wondering how do you make the transfers or prints? I was presuming you just buy them. Can you buy them and cut and arrange your own design?

But is there any way to make them yourself or is that part of a complicated process?

Also does anyone have any experience of actually using one of these machines. I remember when I was a kid, we would go to the mall and they would have booths where they heat pressed transfers onto shirts.

My mother got me a My Little Pony, heat transfer t-shirt. And even though I loved that t-shirt to absolute bits, literally. I do remember the large image felt a little plastic-y on the inside, the side against the skin. But I still loved it.

So I wanted to know if the transfers are more like a plastic sheet you are gluing to the surface of the t-shirt, or are they more like an ink that is getting absorbed into the t-shirt?

Most t-shirts with prints, you can buy now-a-days don't really feel that plastic-y. I wonder if the technology has moved on or if it is just, they don't make them because they don't sell well.

So was wondering if anyone has one of these machines, what the end result actually feels like. Does it actually go through the washing machine ok and what's wear and tear like and all the other things.

I've tried to do a bit of research on the Cricut EasyPress 2, but I trust the reviews of real users rather than the adverts. So if you have one please, would be nice to know what you think?

Thanks
Betty
