Can You Use a Cricut to Print on T-Shirts?

The Cricut is a powerful cutting machine that can do more than just cut paper. With a few simple tools, you can use the Cricut to print on t-shirts too. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

To get started, you’ll need a few items: A Cricut Machine, a cutting mat and an iron-on transfer sheet. You’ll also need a t-shirt to print on and an iron.

Step 2: Design and Cut Your Image

Next, you’ll need to create your design in the Cricut Design Space software. Once your design is finished, load the transfer sheet onto your cutting mat and send it to the Cricut to be cut.

Step 3: Apply the Transfer Sheet to Your T-Shirt

Now that your image has been cut out, remove it from the cutting mat and place it onto your t-shirt with the printed side down. Using an iron set to medium heat, press firmly over the transfer sheet for 30 seconds. Allow it to cool completely before proceeding.

Step 4: Peel Away Transfer Sheet

Once cooled, carefully peel away the transfer sheet from your t-shirt. If any parts of your image remain stuck on the transfer sheet, simply place it back onto the shirt and press with an iron for a few more seconds.


Yes, you can use a Cricut machine to print on t-shirts! All you need is a few simple supplies and some patience as you follow these four steps. With some practice, you’ll soon be able to make beautiful custom printed t-shirts in no time!
