The Cricut EasyPress 2 – The New Easy Press From Cricut!

The Cricut EasyPress 2 is Cricut’s big release of 2018. It’s available in 3 different sizes, and is now for sale.

 

Let’s take a look at all the new features of the EasyPress 2, “with the speed of a heat press and convenience of an iron”. I love my EasyPress 1, but this looks even better…

It’s available in 3 sizes, each with its own stand.

 

 

If you’re someone who wants a small heat press for travel, the small EasyPress 2 (6 x 7 inches) is a great new option.

 

 

There are also new sizes of EasyPress mat for sale.

What’s The Difference Between The EasyPress & EasyPress 2?

 

There have been some good changes between the EasyPress 1 & EasyPress 2. There are technology improvements and other refinements to make the product better.

These include:

  • It is now in 3 different sizes – 6 x 7 inches, 9 x 9 inches, and 12 x 10 inches (EP1 is 9 x 9 inches)
  • Remembers previous press time (see more below)
  • It gets hotter – EP1 had a max temp of 350°F whereas EP2 has a max temp of 400°F
  • Able to press more materials than the EP1
  • EP2 heats up to 25% quicker than the EP1
  • A thicker heat plate with less temperature variance (EP1 is +/- 9°F, EP2 is +/- 5°F)
  • A new safer safety base that will keep whatever it’s on up to 60°F cooler
  • EasyPress 2 has a USB port for firmware updates
  • The color has changed from sky blue to raspberry red

 

easypress 2 what is different

 

EasyPress 2 Remembers Previous Press Settings

 

With EasyPress 1, each time you pressed you needed to reset the time and temperature. EasyPress 2 remembers the previous press settings for you to use when doing multiple t-shirts.

 

I’ve not found it much of a hassle with EP1, but it will make things a bit quicker at times.

The large Cricut EasyPress 2 is great for those wanting to do larger transfers for adult t-shirts, farmhouse signs, and so on. It is still quite a bit smaller than the standard 15 x 15 inch heat press, but perhaps that’s what we can look forward to with the EasyPress 3!

More Info On The Cricut EasyPress 2

 

So should you wait for the new Cricut press in September, or should you get the old one? It may depend on your budget.

 

The original EasyPress is still a fantastic machine, and it will be cheaper (and is currently cheap on Amazon). I’ve just finished making this patterned iron on project with it.
