Dear Client, Thank you for your trust in CSTOWN. Regarding your question about the difference between an iron and a heat press machine, from my experience, the iron can do the application just fine. If you are a business representative who buy rhinestone transfers on a regular basis, then I'll suggest a heat press is necessary. An iron is good enough for pressing the transfers once in a while. But a heat press can be much more time saving and easy handling in a long run. And it's right that the temperature of a heat press can get higher than an iron, too. Hope above assists. Have a nice day!

I don’t think it's a good idea to use a simple home iron. Home irons can't reach such a high temperature (350 Fehrenheit) as a professionl heat press machine does. And it istoo small. U have to push forth n back again n again. Do u just buy ion-on rhinestone transfers or do u press the transfers very often and regular? If u just buy rhinestone transfers once in a while, then u don't need a huge heat press machine. Just bear it with an iron coz it's more economical and reasonable. If u wanna start a business, then get a heat press machine. It saves a lot time.
