Mugs Made Easy with the Cricut Mug Press

 I don't know if you've noticed, but... I'm a little obsessed with coffee. Big surprise, I know. For me, it's not just about the caffeine, but I feel like there's something comforting that comes from picking up a smooth, warm mug of hot, delicious coffee. When I'm stressed, when I'm celebrating... nothing beats a good mug of coffee. And now that mug can be customized just for me and for anyone I want to gift with a mug of their own!

This blog post is sponsored by Cricut. All opinions are 100% my own.

Cricut has made it easier than ever to design and create your very own personalized mug- perfect for anyone and any occasion, from birthdays to anniversaries and everything in between. From their easy to use template in Design Space to their even EASIER to use mug press, you can have a brand new, dishwasher-safe mug ready to hold your beverage of choice in mere minutes.


Start by opening up Cricut Design Space and choose either the small or large mug design template. OH! Did I mention Cricut even has their own mug blanks?? The straight-walled infusible ink compatible mugs come in various sizes, and are PERFECT to use with the mug press and design template. Anyway... Just had to share!

After opening up design space, you'll see some red markings on your design. Those are guide marks. They tell you exactly where to position your chosen design. You'll hide that layer before sending it to be cut. 

Cricut even cut down their infusible ink sheets into perfectly sized mug sheets. I mean, it really cannot get any easier.


After cutting out the design with your Cricut machine (Maker, Explore Air, or Joy), weed the design, wrap it around your mug, and secure it (if needed) with heat-resistant tape. Then, and this is the easiest part.... place it in the mug press, close the lid on the side, and press the button. NO GUESSING about time or temperature. Cricut has that covered with their one-touch system.



Once the mug has cooled (the handle will remain cool enough to handle... get it?), unwrap and check out that beautiful, vibrant color!!! And use your new mug to excuse yourself from unwanted tasks... "Oh, there's laundry that needs to be done? I can't... I'm crafting today." Head to shop.cricut.com to check it out and snag one of your very own!
