Cricut Everyday Iron-On Vinyl - Product Review


If you follow along with me on Instagram then you know I am a huge fan of the Cricut Explore One. It's my electronic unicorn as I like to call it because the possibilities are endless with this machine. I know some of you may be asking, "What about the Cricut Maker?". Well, I can't seem to part ways with my machine just yet. 

Recently I decided to change up things a bit. I wanted to design my own promotional clothing for my business and needed some vinyl. Instead of buying my usual brand of Iron-On vinyl, I decided to give Cricut Everyday Iron-On Vinyl a try - I ordered the gold color. 


Pros
1. Lightweight Material
Once I received my order, I immediately thought the shipping box was empty because of how light the vinyl roll was - lol. The vinyl itself feels light which is positive in my eyes since I'm using it on clothing. Once ironed onto the fabric, the vinyl doesn't weigh it down.

2. Easy To Weed
It can be a pain to weed vinyl that seems like it doesn't want to leave the liner. That isn't the case in my experience with the Cricut Everyday Iron-On Vinyl. It's easy to weed and less time consuming compared to the other brand of vinyl I usually purchase. Hint: I used the weeding tool from my Cricut basic tool set which is the perfect accessory.
3. Easy To Follow Instructions
I'm definitely the type of person that buys a new product and doesn't bother to read the instructions - A bad habit of mine. In this case, since I wanted to make sure my promotional clothing came out perfect, I most definitely read the instructions. To my surprise they were extremely straightforward and easy to read. The best part is that on the back of the packaging, along with the basic use instructions, Cricut even provides you with a cut guide that goes by machine types so that you get the perfect cut with their Everyday Iron-On Vinyl. 




Cons
1. A Little Trouble Adhering To Fabric
On my first attempt I had encounter a little trouble getting the vinyl to adhere to the fabric. Maybe my iron wasn't hot enough or I didn't preheat the fabric long enough before placing the vinyl on. But, eventually I had success and got it to stick perfectly - I used a polyester blend fabric

2. It's A Cold-Peel Vinyl
For those who don't know what a cold-peel vinyl is, you have to wait until the vinyl cools down after pressing before you should peel off the backing - for best results. As someone who can be somewhat impatient, this was a con in my book for this vinyl. 

Overall, I had a positive experience with the Cricut Everyday Iron-On Vinyl and loved my color choice. I would definitely purchase this brand again as an alternative to my usual brand.
