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 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.

 

I’m glad that I’ve got my EasyPress 1, but I’ll probably get the new one to try out as well – I just love heat press machines, especially when they’re Cricut!
