Why is my Cricut not cutting through glitter iron-on?
Ensure that you are using a Cricut brand blade. Then inspect the blade and blade housing and remove any debris that may be stuck to the blade or lodged in the blade housing. Once clean, perform a test cut. You may need to increase the pressure settings 2-3 times by increments of 2-4 to see a change in the cut result.
What setting do you use to cut glitter vinyl?
Because of the sparkly, rougher texture of glitter vinyl, it requires a bit more blade pressure than regular vinyl. As such, don’t use the “ Vinyl ” setting on your Explore dial. Instead, set your dial to “Custom.” When you do this, you will be given a drop-down menu in the Cricut Design Space cut screen.

Why won’t my iron-on vinyl stick to my Cricut mat?
If not holding material well enough, causes may include the following: Cutting mat’s liner has not yet been removed (if never used and mat surface is not sticky at all) Using a material that is not conducive to the cutting mat (overly “linty” and so cannot be held well enough) Mat is older and adhesive has worn down.
What’s the difference between heat press and iron-on?
IRONS HAVE A SMALL PRESSING AREA This means you have to do most heat transfers in stages. Don’t get me wrong, it works, but it’s not ideal. Heat press machines have a much larger pressing area (the standard size is 15×15 inches). You will also have a much more professional result with a heat press.
