Q: Is Bling Anything the same as HTV Anything?
A: No, Bling Anything Material is a special material for making rhinestone decals or stickers. Bling Anything is the only material that you can heat press hot-fix rhinestone directly on to make a rhinestone decal.
HTV Anything is made to press your Heat Transfer Vinyl on to make unique HTV Decals.
Rhinestones Only = Bling Anything Material
Heat Transfer Vinyl Only = HTV Anything Material
Heat Transfer Vinyl with Rhinestones pressed to the HTV = Bling Anything or HTV Anything

Q: Hi is this the same as magic flock?
A: No, Bling anything is an adhesive decal material and magic flock is a rhinestone design template material.
Q: Can you use this on cups and tumblers too or just decals
A: Yes, you can put this on a tumbler. This decal material turns heat applied materials into a dishwasher safe decal or wrap for tumblers. Bling Anything is the decal material you'd use if you only want to use Rhinestones directly on the decal material. HTV Anything is our other material that you do need to press htv to first and then rhinestones on top of the htv.
Q: If I layer glitter HTV vinyl with rhinestones on Bling NE Thing, how long will it last on a car window? And would you recommend this for a car window decal?
A: The Bling Anything Decal Material is very durable and has been used outdoors successfully for years.
However, htv is not rated for outdoor use and fades quickly in the sun. We recommend glitter htv vinyl on our Bling Anything Decal Material for decals that can go on tumblers, laptops and other hard surfaces to be used indoors.
For outdoor decals, we recommend our ColorSpark Adhesive vinyls.
Q: I am being asked if anyone knows of a double sided adhesive for glitter. I thought of bling anything. They want to run it thru a cutter and cut out a full size tumbler template and lay it on the cup.
A: It sounds like this may be a solution for you project. Bling anything has an adhesive backing. You would press your glitter HTV to the bling anything and then attach the bling anything to your cup.
Q: What size hot fix stone is recommended for car decals?
A: Fantastic question. Most of our rhinestone designs use ss10 rhinestones. This size is great for a car decal. If your car window has the room AND you are proficient in resizing rhinestone designs to use other rhinestone sizes, ss16 might work well for car windows as long as they do not inhibit field of view. ;)
Q: How long does the Bling Anything take to adhere to a surface? Is there a curing time required?
A: The longer Bling Anything is left to adhere to a smooth, non-wet non-porous surface, the stringer it’s bind becomes. We recommend letting your decals and wraps set a day before running them through the dishwasher or having to your customer.
Q: Can i layer Colorspark on Bling Anything with rhinestones on top of the Colorspark? If so, how can i do this? I can't heat press them on the colorspark, right? Do you have any suggestions on how i can do this? I want to make a rhinestone decal for a car with a glitter background.
A: You can safely layer rhinestones on top of glitter HTV without too much difficulty, although it can be a little tricky if you try to layer rhinestones on top of a thinner HTV. However most reflective/holographic HTV''s cannot be layered on top of with rhinestones. Here is the link to a blog post about making a glitter/rhinestone layer car decal.
Q: Can I sublimate on this?
A: Unfortunately we do not recommend sublimating on to Bling Anything.
