The designs are currently sized to fit the bags I used, which are 2 medium Infusible Ink Totes and one large Infusible Ink Tote. At this time you are welcome to resize or change the designs if wanted. I also have everything currently set to cut most efficiently on the mats. When ready, hit ‘MAKE IT’ in the top right-hand corner.
Verify the design looks right on the mat and MIRROR the design on all the mats (just like Iron On Vinyl). Once that is done, hit ‘CONTINUE’ in the bottom right-hand corner.
Select your machine from the drop-down menu. If using an Explore Air 2 like, set the dial on your machine to custom and then on your computer select your material to Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets.
Place your Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets on a Standard Mat INK SIDE UP. I really like to use my Brayer to ensure that the Infusible Ink is attached to the mat securely!
Load the mat into your Explore Air 2 or Maker machines. When the ‘C’ button is flashing, press it. Load each mat in as prompted.
Once all the designs are done being cut, use scissors to trim around the designs. Weed the Infusible Ink Designs. This is done easiest using your hands. I like to use rubber gloves so that the ink doesn't get on my fingers.
Place a piece of cardstock on top of your EasyPress Mat and place them inside your tote. This prevents the ink from bleeding onto your EasyPress Mat.
Use a lint roller and go over your tote bag. If needed, use your EasyPress to iron your tote bag. Allow it to cool completely prior to applying the design. Apply the design to your tote. When you're applying a design that uses different patterns of Infusible Ink, just make sure you trim up the transfer tape around them, so they don't overlap at all. Once everything is in place, put the parchment paper down over the Infusible Ink design.
Next up, get your EasyPress 2 preheating! Use the EasyPress Heat Settings Guide to verify the temperature and timing needed. Currently, it states to heat your EasyPress 2 to 385 degrees and to apply heat for 40 seconds! However, I got better results (a more vibrant ink transfer) heating mine to 400 degrees.
Lastly, remove the EasyPress 2 and peel while the design is still warm.
