Your Guide to Swarovski Flatback Crystals

When you’re choosing crystals for your craft or beauty project, you need to consider which type best fits your needs. Flatback crystals tend to be incredibly popular, but what exactly are they and how can you use them?

Here, you’ll discover everything you need to know about Swarovski flatback crystals to help you make the right purchasing decision.

What are flatback crystals?

Flatback Swarovski crystals are exactly what they sound like – they’re designed with a flat back! This makes them incredibly easy to use on practically any surface. They typically come with a foiled backing, providing a beautiful sparkly finish once applied.

They’re available in hotfix and non-hotfix designs and they’re sold in a wide range of shapes and sizes. At Bluestreak Crystals for example, we have a substantial range of flatback crystals on offer, including exclusive designer editions.

What can they be used for?

You can use flatback crystals for all kinds of purposes. They can be added to clothing, used as nail art, included on hand-made cards or even added to mobile phones to give them a glamorous makeover.

They’re extremely versatile, which is why many of our customers choose to buy them in bulk. Our wholesale Swarovski flatback crystals can save you a small fortune if you plan on using them frequently.

If you’d like a little inspiration on how to use these crystals, you’ll find a great range of tutorials online you can follow.

Hotfix or non-hotfix Swarovski flatback crystals?

As mentioned earlier, Swarovski flatback crystals are available in hotfix and non-hotfix designs. The ones you choose will depend upon what you plan to use them for.

Hotfix Swarovski flatback crystals need to be heated up before they can be applied. This means they’re generally unsuitable for use on the body or on shoes. However, they’re perfect for use on clothing, card and paper.

Non-hotfix Swarovski flatback crystals, on the other hand, are applied with glue. This makes them ideal for use on the body, as well as on shoes, picture frames and devices. So, always consider how you plan to use them before deciding whether to invest in hotfix or non-hotfix crystals.

As you can see, Swarovski flatback crystals can be used in a lot of different ways. Whatever project you’re working on, there'll be flatback crystals to fit your needs. Why not take a look at our extensive collection of Swarovski flatback crystals now? All of our stock comes from the authentic Swarovski warehouse in Austria, guaranteeing the very best quality.
