What Is Glitter Sticker Paper?

Glitter sticker paper is a material used to create glitter stickers. Contrary to what most people think, glitter is not added to a standard sticker paper. Instead, this material has the glitter effect printed onto it.

The term sticker paper can also be misleading. Glitter materials are usually made from polyvinyl chloride or polypropylene - vinyl-based plastics, not paper.

This makes glitter stickers durable, waterproof and super shiny.

Different types of glitter sticker paper

Glitter sticker paper is a great way to add sparkle and shine to your projects. We offer two main types of glitter stickers: vinyl-based, made from polypropylene, and eco-friendly, made from wood pulp.

Vinyl glitter stickers

These beauties are made from polypropylene, which is waterproof and scratch-resistant and can be widely recycled. The material has a metallised look that features larger bits of shimmery particles. You can use these glitter stickers outdoors for up to one year.

Eco-friendly glitter stickers

We've put a fancy dress on our white eco-friendly stickers to create these sparkly eye-catchers. Eco-friendly stickers are made from sustainably sourced wood pulp, making them compostable. We've added a super thin metallised layer to our white stickers. This layer is so thin that it will not interfere with the compostability of the overall sticker, but it still gives you some added sparkle. The only downside is that these wood pulp-based stickers are not waterproof and should only be used indoors.

How to use glitter sticker paper

Glitter stickers are incredibly flexible and can add a touch of exclusivity and pizzaz to projects such as:

  • Decorating scrapbook pages
  • Adding sparkle to greeting cards
  • Applying to gifts and presents
  • Making custom labels for bottles, jars, and packages
  • Sticking on artworks, drawings or paintings
  • Creating decorations for parties and other special events
  • Enhancing notebooks and organisers

  • Printing out monograms or designs on t-shirts and other apparel items
  • Embellishing mirrors, furniture pieces, smartphone cases or laptops

Advantages of using glitter stickers over other materials

Not only do glitter stickers share the advantages of using stickers (cost-effective, flexible, fast and easy), but they come with their own set of benefits.

Increase visibility for your business

If you want your business to stand out, then using glitter logo stickers is the way to go. These sparkling stickers not only look amazing, but they also provide an incredible level of visibility for your brand. People are naturally drawn to shiny objects. Therefore, by incorporating glitter into your marketing materials, you can capture their attention and increase brand awareness.

Create amazing colour effects

The glitter material by itself is an eye-catcher. But did you know that printing colour on top of the material created a coloured glitter look? You can even create a mix of glitter, coloured glitter and vibrant colours by using white ink. This allows you to create a truly unique look that will create an elegant shine that's hard to resist. Try it out for yourself and illuminate your brand like never before!

Give a feeling of exclusivity

Are you tired of blending in with the rest of the products? Well, it's time to step up your game and create a sense of exclusivity with glitter stickers. These dazzling stickers catch the eye with their sparkling finish and add a touch of luxury to your products. Think about it, when you see a product embellished with glitter, what comes to mind?
