Best Cricut Mug Press Review in 2022

Still on the face whether to purchase the Cricut mug press or not? The Cricut Mug Press designs professional mugs and cups.

The Cricut Mug Press is not a standalone machine. So you’ll need the Cricut machine, materials, infusible pens, butcher paper, heat transfer paper, and the sublimation mugs.

With all these things factored in, making your first design is pretty easy. The good thing is, the Cricut Mug Press machine works with Cricut Joy, Cricut Maker, and Cricut Explore.

Overview of Cricut Mug Press Machine Works

The Cricut Mug Press looks simple and has a gorgeous design and can create all kinds of designs.

Setting up and using the machine is super simple and most people come up with clean designs with just a single attempt.

Although the Cricut Mug Press machine looks simple, it does carry a high tech behind it. As like we mentioned above, this machine is compatible with most Cricut machines and works with Cricut Design Space.

How Cricut Mug Press Works

Before writing this review, we tried to design different mugs and accessed the design quality. The machine does a commendable job but you’ll need a cutting machine.

This Cricut Mug Press uses infusible inks attached to mugs and it’s easy to create beautiful designs. To get started, you just place your Mug inside the Mug press oven and pull the lever and wait for a few minutes.

When you place the Mug in the machine, the first thing the machine does is measure the room’s temperature and the temperature of the mug. After that the machine adjusts its temperature, it heats the ceramics and the inks making it even easier for you.

What’s even more exciting is that there’s no baffling or measuring the pressure sensitivity levels.  All you have to do is place your Mug in the oven and let it do everything for you. All this is made possible by using a Cricut ecology machine and the Cricut design space app.

The Cricut Mug Press machine has an elegant and simple design. It also has a smooth feel and easily blends in with other machine setups. Unlike most neat-looking machines that don’t last, this Mug press is weighty and can stand the test of time.

The machine has just one button and a lever. To get started, you just need to press the button and wait for a few minutes for the lights to appear. As the machine heats up, the inside plate gets pretty hot but the machine remains cool. However, you’ll need a heatproof mat to avoid accidents. The mugs that come out after design are also hot, so you’ll need to work away from the kids.

Our Verdict

The Cricut Mug Press is a pretty cool machine that is not too heavy or too light. You can simply place the machine on your kitchen counter or on the existing workspace. The Mug press does a great job in delivering high-quality prints on your mugs and it’s super easy to use.


  • Easy to use
  • Enables you to design top-quality prints on mugs
  • Easy setup


  • It’s not a standalone mug press machine

Qmeeki Mug Press Machine is a standalone machine and is easy to use. This time around, however, we had to learn how to adjust the temperature manually.

The Qmeeki Mug Press Machine can be used to sublimate glass mugs,  metal mugs, and ceramic mugs and these mugs should be heat resistant and coated.

How To Use Qmeeki Mug Press Machine

  • Clean the surface of your mug and place it with a sublimation inkjet pattern paper in the machine.
  • For the first-time setting,  select 200s/300s and 320°F/356°F/392°F for the temperature setting.
  • This machine also has a pressure setting depending on the diameter of the mug.
  • After placing the Mug in the heat pad, loosen the black screw knob counterclockwise, fasten the snap on the top of the machine and then tighten the black pressure knob clockwise until the heat pad firmly presses on the mug.

You might notice small smoke and odor coming from the heating pad caused by the high temperature on the inkjet sublimation paper. This shouldn’t worry you because the machine has overheating protection. You can turn the machine off at this time and give it some time before removing your Mug.


  • Light
  • Easy to use
  • High-quality prints


  • Attaching the sublimation paper can be a bit hard
