How Glitter Is Made

The glitter that we sell is made from two different types of film. The Craft Glitter is made from PVC film and the Polyester Glitter is made from PET films. The iridescent line combines each PET and acrylic together.

The holographic glitter is made from film that already has the holographic quality. The identical goes for iridescent. The films are colored and handled earlier than they're cut.

There are totally different types and sizes of machines which can be used for chopping glitter. Most machines have blades that reduce the glitter into both hex shape items or sq. form items depending on how the film is fed into it. Other machines die-cut shapes from the film.
