When I started writing this blog, I looked up the history of the Christmas stocking. There’s an interesting article on the Smithsonian website about the legend, with fun images. After you create tons of shirts and accessories with this colorful and detailed rhinestone transfer, I encourage you to take a moment, with a warm cup of your choice, and read it.

Until then, let’s get started with creating another festive shirt for your customers. Here’s how we did it:

Items used:
Christmas Rhinestone transfer from The Wild Side – Item # 15530

12 Days: Rhinestone Christmas StockingTools Needed:
Heat press
Heat printing pillow

Tip-StockingTip: Since the rhinestones are different sizes, using a heat printing pillow will help to absorb the different levels of pressure (much like if the garment had buttons) and create an even surface for heat application.

Non-stick cover sheet
Heat eraser cooling tool

Garment: Denim shirt, T-shirt, Hoodie, Crew sweatshirt, Santa sack, etc.

Heat Press Settings:
Temperature: 320° F
Pressure: Medium (#6 on Hotronix® heat presses)

Application Instructions:

• Insert a heat printing pillow inside the garment to be decorated.

• Place garment on lower platen and preheat it for 10 seconds to remove wrinkles and moisture

• Remove the textured backing from the rhinestone transfers

• Position the rhinestone transfer sticky-side-down on the garment in desired position

• Cover whole garment with a non-stick cover sheet and close the machine

• Heat apply for 10 seconds

• Smooth the heat eraser over the non-stick cover sheet until design is cooled

• Peel the clear mask from the transfers

• Sell to all of your customers!

We hope you’ve enjoyed the 12 Shirts of Christmas series and we wish you a very Merry Christmas season!! If you’ve been inspired by these shirts, please share your holiday creations on our Facebook page.
