Product Questions

What is the difference among your sequin finishes?

Iridescent sequins are transparent and have a finish on them that causes changes color when moved in the light. Since they are transparent, they will show any color that is beneath them somewhat. For example, if a clear iridescent sequin is placed on black cloth, the black color will show through.

Crystal Iris sequins are transparent sequins with a heavy iridescent finish.

Opaque Iridescent sequins have iridescence, but the sequin itself is not transparent, and no color will show through from beneath.

Crystal Opaque sequins are opaque sequins with a heavy iridescent finish.

Satin sequins have a matte finish, are not shiny, and are not transparent.

Opalescent sequins are opaque and very shiny with a glowy, opalescent finish.

Metallic sequins are opaque and have a mirror-like finish. This type of sequin is commonly used on Christmas ornaments.

Crystal Metallic sequins have a metallic base with a heavy iridescent finish.

Hologram sequins are opaque, have a spotlight finish which will reflect different colors as it turns in the light.

Do you see sequins pre-strung, on rolls, or by the worm?

All of our sequins are sold loose. 

Are your sequins and beads washable?
Due to the many types of solvents, detergents and chemicals available, we do not guarantee product to be washable or colorfast. 
If wearability of a sequin is in question, we recommend that you test before starting your project. If you are embarking upon a large project, we always advise our customers to test a small amount to judge suitability before placing a large order.
Please use items with alcohol (such as hand sanitizers and hair spray) sparingly, as they may damage the finish of some sequins. We do not recommend the use of a dryer, as the heat may cause sequins to warp.

Ordering Questions

How can I contact you?
We are open M-F 8-3 central time (excluding postal holidays). Our phones are not staffed while we are working orders, so the best way to reach us is by email, which is monitored during business hours.

Do you have a catalog or samples?
Sorry, but we do not publish a catalog or provide samples or sample cards.  We continuously add to our inventory, and a catalog or sample card would become obsolete within weeks.

When will I get my order?
We do our very best to ship your order within 24-48 hours of receiving payment, not counting weekends and postal holidays. Delivery of your order depends upon the shipping method chosen. In the USA, Express Mail usually takes 1-2 days, Priority Mail usually takes 2-3 days, and First Class Mail can take up to a week.  A shipment notice with tracking number is automatically emailed to the email address given to us on the shopping cart when your order is shipped.  If you do not receive your shipment notice, please check your Spam or Promotions folders.

I'm in a hurry! Do you offer express mail?
We offer expedited shipping via USPS and UPS. The cost is indicated in the shopping cart, based upon the cart contents and method chosen. All paid orders received after 9:30am central time are shipped the NEXT business day, regardless of shipping method chosen.

Can I change my order?
Because we strive to get paid orders out as quickly as possible, we typically cannot change or cancel an order once it has been placed. You are welcome to email us and we will make our best efforts to accomodate you.

I got my order, but there's no packing slip.  What happened?
After you complete your order, you are emailed a receipt containing your order details.  You are also sent a copy of your order in our shipment notice.  Therefore, we do not include a paper packing slip with your order.  That's why it's so important that we have your correct email address, and that we're not blocked by anti-spam or spam blocker programs.  Since you get two electronic copies, we've found it unnecessary to send a paper one.  We leave it up to you whether you'd like to print it out, save it for reorders, file it away, or simply delete it. If you have signed up for an account with us, your order will also be found in your Order History. If you are not receiving our emails, please check your Spam or Promotions folder.

Do you sell wholesale?
Many of our products are offered in 100-gram bags at a 20-30% discount.   If you are interested in a product on our website for which a 100-gram bag is not offered, please email us for availability.
