Q: How to apply rhinestone transfer?

A:You can apply it with household iron or heat press. We recommend using a heat press to apply our rhinestone transfers. It will ensure that even heat and pressure is applied throughout the design.

Step 1: Lay garment on flat surface. Do not use a padded ironing board. For thin garments place a pressing cloth or a piece of flat cardboard inside of garment.

Step 2: Remove the protecting foil and make sure that all stones are in place and none of the stones have shifted during shipment. If stones have shifted, use tweezers to re-position the stones into the correct place.

Step 3: Place sticky side of paper onto garment and adjust to correct position. Cover the transfer paper with a pressing cloth or Teflon Sheet.

Step 4: Apply heat by lowering iron straight down onto transfer area and push hard for 10-20seconds without steam. Make sure to cover entire transfer area. DO NOT MOVE IRON AROUND! Heavier fabrics such as denim might need more time and light fabrics less time. If you are using a heat press do not over do the pressure or you will leave pressure marks on garment. Press for 15-20 seconds. 

The Temperature for rhinestones is 150℃-170℃. For rhinestuds and nailheads is 140-150℃.

Step 5: Remove the sticker from the cloth after cooling.
