I have a design that I'm going to cut out of Metallic vinyl then I have a rhinestone design that will go around the vinyl (not on top). The instructions for the metallic say:

Prepare heat press at 290-300 degrees F.
Press for 15 seconds with light/medium pressure (note: excessive pressure will cause metallic colors to back off.
Peel backing cold.

I have a Hotronix press.

I normally press the stones at 350 degrees F, pressure 4 for 12 seconds, peel transfer sheet cool, cover with teflon sheet and press another 12 seconds.

It's my understanding that I should press the vinyl first then the rhinestones. Is having that much of a change in temperature and that many presses going to affect the metallic vinyl?

Thanks,
Di
