Saved the best for last, the Cricut Autopress!


What is a Cricut Autopress? Cricut designed this one of a kind heat press to make bulk projects in less time with smart features like auto-adjustment/self opening heat plate. The Cricut Autopress applies the right amount of pressure and two fingers will engage motor, zero effort to open and close the press plate.


Image Courtesy of Cricut The Cricut Autopress is durable and has a 15x12” advanced heat plate with a ceramic coated surface - Cricut’s biggest heat press yet! and can handle all types or iron on, HTV, infusible ink, and sublimation prints with temperatures up to 400 degrees F.


Does the Autopress work with the Cricut Heat App? No, it’s not Bluetooth enable. The control pod however, has 4 different preset material settings. Simply use the dial on the control pod to select desired time and settings.


Why Cricut Autopress vs Cricut Easypress?

Make more in less time with Cricut AutoPress (if making in bulk, faster, less effort) make larger projects with 15x12” platen. While it takes longer to heat up (average of 8 minutes) once at temperature, the process will be easier and takes less time as you prep your next project while current one is in the press. With Easy Press it is perfect for “one to a few” personalized projects.

Should we use parchment paper or a silicone mat to place over iron-on when doing layers?

Parchment paper protects your heat plate, there are some settings that recommended Teflon sheet and a protective sheet of to protect sensitive materials.

What is the recommended dimensions of your table for the Autopress and how much does it weigh? You will need approximately 22.5” from the back of your contour to the front of your contour and is just under 53lbs without packaging and 58lbs with packaging.
