What Temperature Cricut Foil Iron On?

Iron-on foils can add a unique and stylish look to your projects. They come in either sheets or rolls, and can be cut with the Cricut machine.

But before you start ironing on the foil, it’s important to know what temperature setting you should use.

For best results, set your iron to the medium setting (about 300-325°F). This temperature is hot enough to heat up the adhesive backing of the foil, but low enough to prevent it from melting or burning. If you go too high, the foil may not adhere properly, or worse, it could melt onto your iron!

In general, Cricut recommends that you use a dry iron for their iron-on foils. It’s important that the surface of the iron is clean and free of any dust or debris that could get in between the iron and your project. If you accidentally get any dirt on your project while ironing on the foil, simply wait for it to cool down before wiping it off with a soft cloth.

Tips for Ironing Foil:

  • Test out a small scrap piece of foil first before applying it to your project.
  • Place a Teflon sheet or parchment paper over your project before pressing.
  • Never leave an unattended iron.

Iron-on foils are a great way to add an extra bit of pizzazz to any project! With these tips in mind and knowing what temperature setting works best for Cricut foils, you’ll be able to create stunning projects that are sure to stand out from the crowd.
