can you apply heat-pressed rhinestones on printed?

Is it possible to heat press rhinestones after the shirt is printed? The rhinestones will be in the printed area. If it's possible, is it with plastisol inks or waterbased inks?

I am not sure about plastisol, but I add them on my dtg stuff after printing and I dont have any problems with them adhering. So I can say that they do well with water based ink :)
No probs with waterbased. Don't know about plastisol but I would imagine a heat press would damage the print so probably best to apply one at a time wih a soldering iron/kandikane. That depends on how many you want to apply.

It is not a problem for us either. I have a DTG priter and a robotic rhinestone machine. Check out the shirt we did.
