WHAT IS RHINESTONE?
The rhinestones, also called jets are small decorative stones imitating natural stones, which can be fixed to the material thank to the special layer of very strong glue. The most popular are rhinestones, which resemble jewellery stones - they are round and transparent. However, they can appear in different colours or shapes, and also they can have different sizes. The most popular are round jets in sizes 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6mm. The wide range of thermo-jets available on the market gives you the opportunity to create in a simple way unique designs that will look great - the possibilities are almost limitless, what is more, rhinestones in different sizes or colours can be freely combined with each other in one pattern. You should also know that their application is extremely easy and does not require high manual skills. In the past, jets were bought in pieces and each little stone had to be fixed to garment separately, which was a real challenge requiring precision and high manual skills. Nowadays, thanks to specialized machines for making rhinestone motifs, we can quickly prepare even the most complicated and labour-intensive designs that you can easily stick on your own using a press or iron.
WHAT ARE RHINESTONE MOTIFS ?
Jet motifs are “ready-to-stick” sheets of a special foil, on which we make your pattern/ design from different hot-fix ornaments – rhinestones, rhinestuds, nailheads, half-pearls etc. Single laying of each rhinestone (we mean one little stone) is very labor-intensive work, and if you need large quantities, this way of making rhinestone motif would be very inefficient. Rhinestone motifs that we present you, allow you to apply a large amount of jets to the selected material at the same time. Thanks to the high melting temperature of the specially dried adhesive (glue), which is located on the back of jet, it is possible to apply the designs directly to the material using a thermo-transfer press or iron. The customer can decide whether apply the rhinestone motif in our company (professional sticking service) or to do it at home.
The jets are suitable for decorating many types of surfaces and materials. We can use them to decorate knits and fabrics, both natural and artificial, such as polyester or felt. Those who are more experienced in fixing rhinestones will be able to stick them on the net materials as well!
What's more, jets can be combine with other decorative techniques such as embroidery, sublimation or screen printing - they can be put on these decorative techniques.
