If you’re looking to give your projects some scintillating shine, there’s no better than what Siser has to offer! Here are just some of the products Siser provides so that you can give your designs some dazzle!
Siser Glitter is the main choice for people who want to add some sparkle to their designs! It is offered in a variety of colors, and is available in typically 12” and 20”. However, due to its thickness of 325 microns, it is not layerable like EasyWeed, and can only be used as a base or as a final layer for a design.
Siser Sparkle is the alternative for those that want the shine of Glitter while wanting the soft and smooth finish of EasyWeed! With a thickness of 120 microns, the Sparkle vinyl lineup is also layerable to add to its versatility. Please note that despite its similarities to EasyWeed, there are some slight differences regarding its cutting, application, and care.
Siser Twinkle is another choice for those who want some shine in their vinyl. Thinner than Glitter but thicker than Sparkle, Siser Twinkle has a thickness of 225 microns. Smooth to the touch and also sporting a radiant gloss, this particular vinyl even has a slight reflective quality!
If you're looking for a smooth finish, soft hand, and a brushed metal appearance that can be washed and worn without becoming lackluster, Siser Metal is the vinyl you need!
For those that want a vinyl that flaunts a metallic sheen, Siser Metal may be the right match for your needs! At 63 microns, Siser Metal is a lightweight vinyl with a glossy metal finish that will retain its luster even after wear and tear. Note that Metal can only be used as a top layer when attempting to layer vinyl.
Siser StripFlock Pro
