I ordered a custom tank top for my daughter and it turned out beautiful! The quality is great and it arrived super fast. I was so pleased with my order that I ordered a t-shirt for myself!

Rhinestone Appliques made from design concept to completion

I started my shop with different items than I have now and the things I have now sort of evolved after I became frustrated trying to make rhinestone appliqués and failing miserably with materials that were available at the time I opened. I persisted and found something called "sticky flock" which literally has changed my life. It makes it so much easier to cut a template which is the first step in making a rhinestone appliqué. After one is cut I take the sticky flock which now has tiny holes in it the size of whatever rhinestones I'm using. Then I lay the template on something called a work station and I spread the stones over the template taking a special brush and in a circular motion go back and forth until all the holes are covered. Then I have this special tape which is made especially for this process and that is very important because other tapes can cause static electricity which would be a nightmare for me. Actually when the weather is dry out I do notice more static so I take a dryer sheet and wipe each piece of tape before placing it on the template. The tape then grabs all the rhinestones. At that point I have a finished appliqué . I then turn on my very hot professional grade heat press to 250 degrees and I press down twice each for 40 seconds. This process works for me after much trial and error. It's really important to me that my rhinestones never fall off and due to the quality of the rhinestones and the other steps I take, that will not happen. I guarantee my items even if they are customized because I feel when someone buys something of mine it should last and be quality. It's very gratifying knowing that I can take any design found on the internet or requested form a customer and through my design software and my amazing cutting machine and of course sticky flock, I can produce almost anything imaginable. I love the people I buy my materials from and I love my customers. I have gotten to know each one of them and have gotten to know their families too and it's a very good feeling seeing repeat customers which is very common for my shop.
