Cricut Infusible Ink Test on 3rd Party Products!

Updated: Sep 18, 2023

So I'm looking at the new Cricut Infusible Ink prices, especially what they are charging for their Blanks, shirts, Tote Bags, and Ceramic Coasters, and I'm thinking that's way too expensive. After all, I like to make and sell my items too. After doing some research it says that your cloth items need to be 95% or more Polyester, I found some Polyester Tote Bags for a great price and I did a Cricut infusible ink test on them, check out the results below!

Be careful when heating the infusible ink, you need even pressure and bags have thick edges
Terrible! So I increased the time from 40 seconds to 50

And.... PERFECT! In fact almost 100% of the Infusible Ink Transferred!

Watching some of the video's using Cricut's blanks, I noticed most of them are not getting the full Ink to transfer, I'm guessing they need to extend the heat time like I did.

Here are 14 blanks you can try that cost less just be sure to heat your project 10 extra seconds! All of these are Polyester, even the Tile. I'm ordering some of those to try. The bags came out great, see below. Other than that follow Cricut's instructions for Infusible Ink!

Beach Bags I hope to sell through Etsy:
