sorry it took me so long to reply, I had a bunch of orders due before end of Oct. Anyway...The "Devils" part of the bow, I originally applied the Devils with iron on letters I purchased as a full alphabet at JoAnns. Then, I got smart because it was a serious PIA (**NOT Pia Bows, mind you, haha I love her bows and her ingenuity) to place each letter separately. So, I went online and found aplace that would make the name for me, and I applied with an iron just for placement then a hot fix tool. I have also made headbands with chrystals (Team name) on them using hot fix swarovski and the hot fix tool, but once again, very much a PIA. For this bow in particular, I used the rhinestuds, not rhinestones. When they are that small, you cannot see them very well anyway and have a sparkle content of near zero when seen from the judge's table.
The name of the company that makes the custom rhinestone/rhinestud words for me is...BRB gotta find it...dazzling designs
They are great, and really worked with me to get my design just right.
