Hi to all.

I’m new on this forum, and I’m (unfortunately) far away from USA, in eastern Europe.
I have one question and I hope you will be so kind to help me.

I’m involved in design and art for a whole my life but a T-Shirt business is relatively new to me.
I am mostly helping my GF.
I’m interested in rhinestones transfer, but I’m not so sure about terminology.
I had no idea about term "rhinestones". I call them crystals, all my life.

So, you guess what is my question.
I saw and read a lot on the web, maybe would buy Roland EGX-350 (I have Adobe CS2, so I’m fine with software), because here we don’t have any custom rhinestones “stickers” maker (but there are not to many needs also!).
I could supply some small garments manufacturers.

So, I would really be appreciatively if someone could tell my what exactly is base for engraving? Is that some kind of cardboard, plastic?
In addition I saw a lot of video on You Tube and on almost every different video, they use some other engraving base?
I would like to know, what is best base for engraving, and how would you describe it in most simpler words.

I need names, brands, everything you can tell me.

In my country, when one tell Transfer paper, it is understand that he/she talks about paper for transferring silk prints to garments (T-Shirts mostly).

However, on lot of photos, I see papers, which have two components, “Oily” foundation, and sticky transparent “plastic/PVC/acryl” base for rhinestones fixing.

Thank you very much, all!

English is not my native language. And I’m not too much in to T-Shirts “advanced” terminology, so don’t mind if my question is little nob for you guys & galls :)

Welcome to the forums!

There are many great threads on do-it-yourself rhinestone transfers that you should read over before investing in expensive equipment.....

I learned a lot from them, and now I'm doing them by hand!
Thanks, but my girlfriend manufactures a fashion T-Shirts for more than 10 years. She have a small designers brand. As our country doesn't protect us at all, we must fight against most famous foreign manufacturers & brands here.
So, i need profesional solution. We have some 200-400 pieces of garment in one serie and i can't afford to do anything by hand, what i don't have to do. And i really like what I saw in Roland demo movie on you tube!

Thanks for your time!
If you like Roland...check out this link Rhinestone Setting System
