We recommend using a heat press to apply rhinestone transfers.
Approximate heat press temperature: 325° - 345° F
Approximate press time: 10 seconds using medium to firm pressure (some material may require longer press time).
To apply, lay your selected garment onto the heat press (*see IMPORTANT COMMENTS below). Remove the protective backing from the transfer and place with the sticky side on the material (be careful that the transfer is lined up where you want it to be on the material). Apply pressure from your heat press as indicated above. Allow the transfer to cool. Slowly remove the clear transfer paper. If any stones come up while removing the transfer paper, do not continue. Lightly replace the transfer paper and repeat process above.
Best results are achieved using a heat press, however, if carefully applied, an iron may be used.
Iron Setting: High, NO STEAM.
Approximate press time: 25-30 seconds per area using medium to firm pressure (some material may require longer press time). DO NOT MOVE IRON BACK AND FORTH. Press straight down onto thin protective material placed over transfer.
To apply, place garment onto a hard, flat surface (*see IMPORTANT COMMENTS below). Remove the protective backing from the transfer and place with the sticky side on the material (be careful that the transfer is lined up where you want it to be on the material). Place a thin piece of protective material, such as a pillow case, over the transfer. Press your iron straight down onto the pillow case over the transfer for approximately 10-20 seconds using medium to firm pressure. Repeat process until entire transfer has been pressed. DO NOT MOVE IRON BACK AND FORTH OR YOU WILL DISPLACE THE STONES. Allow the transfer to cool. Slowly remove the clear transfer paper. If any stones come up while removing the transfer paper, do not continue. Lightly replace the transfer paper and repeat process above.
When all of the stones are adhered and the clear transfer paper has been removed, press your iron directly on top of the stones for approximately 5 seconds (do not move your iron back and forth).
To prevent fabric layers from adhering together from the transfer adhesive, place protective padding, such as a sheet of Teflon, in between the layers. (Example: place a sheet of Teflon or other material inside of a shirt to prevent the front of the shirt from adhering to the back of the shirt).
For the heat press, it may be helpful to have extra material for padding under your garment, although this is not required.
If using an iron, do not use an ironing board. Use a hard, flat surface.
To lengthen the life of your design on the garment, wash inside out on gentle cycle. Line dry or machine dry on medium to low heat.
