Rhinestone Spacing

I am new to rhinestone designs and am currently just making my designs by hand...and planning on making templates for those that prove popular.

I was wondering if spacing makes any big difference when hand setting stones. I know tight spacing will use more stones and that when making templates I will have to plan for looser spacing. But, when hand setting stones will tight spacing (stones touching) affect the pressing or the long-term stability of the garment?

should not matter if the stones are similar size. however if smaller stones are next to bigger stones, the smaller stone will not get equal pressure with a heat press. If using a hand wand and applying heat to each individual stone, you should be fine with different size stones also.
