Infusible Ink is Cricut’s version of sublimation and that means that the design will not peel, crack or fade. The ink is sublimated onto the coasters so you can enjoy them for years!
You can read more about Infusible Ink here. I also made a post and a video about how to correctly cut and weed Infusible Ink as well as how to apply Cricut Infusible ink to a shirt or baby bodysuit.
Today we will talk about applying Infusible Ink to coasters to create personalized coasters that make great gifts!
Coasters are great for holiday gifts, neighbor gifts, housewarming parties, newlyweds and so much more! Withthe Infusible Ink Pens and Markers along with the personalization of the Cricut the designs and occasions are endless!

I love to add monograms to things! If you have been here a while you know this! I have 30+ Free Monogram fonts I shared as well as my ever-popular post and video on How to Make a Monogram in Cricut Design Space.
I designed this split letter monogram myself in Adobe Illustrator but here are my favorite places to get Split Letter Monogram fonts:

How to Apply Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets to Coasters
Time needed: 20 minutes.
Create custom and personalized coasters with Cricut Infusible Ink. These make perfect Gift Ideas for many different occasions!
- Cut the Transfer Sheet
Using your machine of choice, cut your designs from the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet.
NOTE: Be sure to MIRROR your design! Also the color of the sheet may be skewed, this is OK!
- Trim Excess of the Sheet
I am frugal and Like to save scraps for other projects so I cut the excess of the Infusible Ink Transfer sheet from the designs.
- Weed Design
Using your fingers only (or tweezers if necessary) weed away the excess infusible ink transfer sheet. A weeding hook may push ink into the carrier sheet and transfer to your finished project.
- Prepare Coaster
Using the cloth that came with the Infusible Ink Transfer sheets, clean the surface of the coaster. (shiny side)
- Adhere Design
Apply the cut and weeded design with the colored side down onto your coaster. Use heat resistant tape to secure it in place.
- Press the Coasters using an EasyPress 2
Refer to the Heat Guide for your project but I set my EasyPress 2 to 400F and 240 seconds.
Place a sheet of cardstock on your EasyPress mat (to protect it) add your Coasters FACE DOWN and cover with a piece of butcher paper that was included as well in the infusible ink transfer sheet box.
Press the coasters. Do not touch or move the EP while it’s pressing.
- Let Cool
Remove the EasyPress and allow the coasters to cool. They will be VERY hot!
- Remove Carrier Sheet
Once the coasters are cool, remove the tape and carrier sheet to reveal your new personalized coasters!
