92 | Printwear M ay 20 1 4 The ProducTion Zone Tips and Tricks for Decorating Bags and Accessories Add On TO AppArel Bags and other items decorated with rhine- stone designs make for a great add on sale to apparel. But, it's important to offer bags that fit the custom rhinestone transfer. For example, don't overlook the fact that some bags have handles that may go through the middle of where you want the design. Order various sample bags to test. Use a teflon sheet over the bag when you press the rhinestone design. Most handles on bags are made from polypropylene and, if they aren't covered, will melt during pressing. Make sure to test the bags not only for the max- imum rhinestone transfer size, but also to make sure the ma- terial of the bag is not too thin or is a fabric that will melt during pressing. Order various samples from your bag sup- plier to test.
