Rhinestone transfers and decoration of finished products: An untapped market

Rhinestone setting is currently one of the most profitable techniques in garment decoration and for the first time it has become affordable to enter the market or add it to an existing business. Be prepared to spend enough money to buy good quality equipment though, unless garment decoration using rhinestones is likely to be a hobby rather than a serious, profit-making business.


Rhinestones look great on their own, but you can also add a touch of bling to prints from direct-to-garment machines, embroidered designs, heat transfer prints or some screen printed designs. There is a world of applications just waiting to be explored and a ready market for the end product.


Getting a professional solution for rhinestone decoration today is like getting in on the ground floor of an untapped market. You can set up to serve only the trade or go directly to a wide range of end users. The sky is the limit!


Buying a rhinestone setting machine or indeed a rhinestone setting robot is not all you need to think about before getting involved in this business. The rhinestone business is fast increasing in popularity and can be a very profitable niche, provided you go about the business correctly from the outset and invest in good quality equipment and software. Rhinestone designs are a popular addition to anything ranging from t-shirts to baseball caps, but creating these additions in a profitable way is another matter entirely.


Rhinestone setting software


Good software lies at the very core of a profitable rhinestone business. You need to be able to create the rhinestone designs Rhinestone sample quickly and calculate the costs based on the number of stones used quickly and efficiently. Time is money and using software that was never intended to run a rhinestone setting machine will not serve you well. While graphics packages like Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator are excellent products in their own right and can be used, no profitable, professional rhinestone business will ever be running with anything other than dedicated rhinestone setting software. There are many products out in the market place, so choosing your software should involve a personal demonstration to see how quick and easy it is to use. You also need to consider how flexible the software is and how easy it would be to convert poor quality designs like low resolution jpegs or even hard copy files into a viable design. Will your software allow you to create multi-media designs by opening embroidery files and add a rhinestone design quickly and easily?


Special rhinestone software fits this bill and may be a worthwhile investment even if you already have software supplied with a current rhinestone setting machine. The software can run vinyl cutters, laser, engravers and a wide range of rhinestone setting machines.
