FAQs About Using Infusible Ink on Shirts

Below are some questions that are most often asked about working with Infusible Ink on shirts.

1. Can I use Cricut Infusible Ink on any shirt?

To achieve optimal transfer of Infusible Inks onto T-shirts, they must bind with polyester surfaces (I recommend going for the highest percentage, but anything about 50% Polyester is advisable).

Additionally, as Infusible Inks are transparent, the best results occur on white or light-colored fabrics. Ideally, a T-shirt with a high polyester count in a pastel or white shade is perfect for use with Infusible Ink.

2. How long does infusible ink last on shirts?

Infusible ink is perfect for creating long-lasting, vibrant designs on t-shirts. Unlike other inks that are prone to fading over time, infusible ink won't wash off or rub off your garments – it chemically bonds into the fabric's fibers for a permanent result.

3. Is infusible ink the same as sublimation?

Infusible Ink is a sublimation introduced by Cricut that simplified the printing process.

It works much like traditional sublimation but without the need for a sublimation printer and special ink. The actual ink is already embedded into transfer sheets that can be simply cut and applied.

4. Do you need a heat press for infusible ink?

Yes, you will need a heat press if you are working with infusible ink. Infusible ink uses a special transfer method that requires the use of heat and pressure to set the ink onto the substrate.

So, a heat press (or EasyPress) is essential for this printing process.

5. Do you need to wash your shirt before using Infusible Ink?

No, you do not need to wash your shirt before using Infusible Ink. Infusible Ink technology allows you to transfer a design directly onto an item without the need for any washing or pre-treatments.
