Let's learn a little more about COLORflex!
COLORflex can be cut on the Cricut, a laser, with a blade or many other tools
It is laser safe! 
COLORflex is a heat and pressure applied color application to 100% cotton which allows for colors and patterns not achieved through paints or sublimation. COLORflex allows for a vibrant color, glitter, neon, or even metallic option for your projects. 
COLORflex is so versatile and fun to work with!  It can be used in so many different projects, such as jewelry, bags, hat patches, hair bows and many other things. 
COLORflex comes with masking on both sides to keep it protected.  You can take the masking off if you would like before cutting with a Cricut to make it easier to cut. If you are cutting with a laser we suggest that you leave it on to make sure that you get a clean cut in the end.  Smoke residue is hard to get off of some of the lighter colors. 
For Glowforge Laser Cutting COLORflex we recommend Cut settings 450/full .02 focus and  Engrave 1000/75 or you can use the Medium natural leather settings on the Glowforge and that works well too.  These settings are 
Cut 246/81 and Engrave 1000/71.
Cutting the COLORflex on the laser does have a masking smell when cutting so make sure to have your fan exhaust on!
For cutting with the Cricut we recommend removing the masking and using the preset settings for Heavy Fabrics (like Denim), Bonded. These settings are Cut Pressure: 340 Multi-cut: 3x Blade Type: Fine-PointOr
