I love this product. It IS harder to weed out smaller detail, I stopped using it for small detailed items, I was just wasting the vinyl. other than that, product is great and the customers love it!

 Hesitant Buyer
Reviewed by Ebony 5/10/2017 6:13:56 PM

I was very hesitant about ordering this product because I have never cut on any of their materials. However I just purchased 1 yard of the the gold and will be ordering a larger tube soon! The quality and quantity for the price can't be beat not to mention the ease of weeding and cutting; Only took me two tries on each bundle I got and I got the cut down to a science!

I order this material all the time and it does great but for reason the glitter flake light turns a gold iridescent color once baked on the shirt i used the proper temp and time the pink is still visible but its not as vibrant as it is before you bake it.. i would use it again because some will like it, but I'm hoping my customer is not upset with the color she loooooves pink and its hints of pink but more goldish than pink I'm a lil disapointed it was perfect before i baked it.

I love using Glitter Flake. I have kids jerseys I've printed 3 years ago that are still shining and still fully on the jersey. No fading no peeling! I am due to print on sublimated jerseys and was wondering if anyone else may have done this already? Please let me know if you had any problems?

 Great Product/Hard to weed fancy font
Reviewed by Dorecia Craft 2/11/2016 12:23:08 AM

Beautiful on shirts. It was a bear to weed! My font was a little fancy, but the regular thick font was a breeze to weed. The silver is stunning of black, purple or any dark garment. Love the effects. the effects are rich and vibrant. My business just went up a notch. I am giving up on the paper, vinyl is the way to go.

 Mixed Results
Reviewed by Mary Ann 11/21/2014 7:51:58 PM

The swatches looked great so I ordered a few yards in several colors. Gold is stunning, especially on black shirts. Weeding was a snap. White is more subtle but looks very nice and weeded easily. Black was a HUGE disappointment. It looks nice but is the worst weeding experience ever. Tearing was so bad I had I could pull up only a square inch or so at a time. Maybe it's a bad batch? I'll need to find a different color for the design - too bad.

I was cursing the brittle nature of this substrate as I was weeding 150, 3/4 inch high (3/16" thick) square serif font names. Small pieces of material were constanly breaking off and it was taking forever to weed three 20" x 24" sheets. Then our power went off. So on a nice warm Summer day (25 degrees C), I took the stuff outside and sat in the sun to finish the job. As the material warmed up, it started weeding like a charm. iT WEEDED AS EASY AS PREMIUM PLUS FILM I now pre-warm the cut material, before I weed it. Simply wrap/roll it in a heating pad for 10 - 15 min. (I use a 'Medium Heat' setting); then unroll/unwrap the sheet, place it ontop of the heating pad (to maintan the warm temp). and weed away. NOTE: Do not warm the material before cutting. Room temp. (colder) material cuts better (much sharper corners).

I love the neon colors but it's too bad this is the only place I can find them. The clear piece doesn't stick very well which makes it hard to cut. It just tears up. As soon as I opened the purple the whole clear piece fell right off! :( I thought maybe it was just the neon colors so I ordered green and silver...same problem!

 Fantastic Product!
Reviewed by Laura Jastrzemski 4/27/2014 10:09:04 AM

As an embroidered, I've used Glitter Flake as an applique material and have had excellent results. It is tricky to weed in some areas like inside corners, but tweezers can be used to pick out small bits. The placement stitches perforate the Glitter Flake well and the tack-down and final column stitches hold it in place quite well. Although Stahl's doesn't recommend the use of an iron to fuse it in place. I've had excellent results using an iron on the wool setting without steam. I've never had it come loose, even after repeated washing. And now it is available in white. Call me "Addicted"!

I adore this product! Once I got my cut settings right, I found that it weeds beautifully; as easy, if not easier than wall vinyl! I love to combine multiple colors and use with rhinestones for mixed media designs. It creates such a nice high end look. It washes well, also. Please keep adding colors to the line! Love it!

I cannot say enough good things about the Silver and my letters were fairly small. Weeded like a dream. The Black was awful, but I read someone's tip about cutting twice and made it a lot better. Have cut the Red and almost as easy to cut as the Silver. Love it!

Started out just using the plain (boring) cutter didn't like this so much and neither did I...found the Glitter Flake and the first color I chose was the light pink...on dark colors not so pretty...So went back and ordered the Hot Pink, Black, Silver, Black/Silver. LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I use the Hot Pink and Black glitter the most on my pageant sashes. Easy to fix if my cutter messes up a little...just add/cut a piece to fix and voila' doesn't look like I made a boo boo...I use the Hot pink mainly on my T-Shirts that I give to my contestants. Don't have a heat press...but use my iron and this stuff is awesome. Does not peel off in washing, looks like new after washing....Just Plain AWESOMENESS.. Have not figured out how to layer with my cutter, but will experiment. Will be ordering Red and Blue in the next month or so...Great product.

I normally love glitter flake. However the disclaimer on the pink should be next to the colour! I am in big trouble with a huge order. I cut everything and started to apply. It is not what the client ordered. I now have to suck it up and order hot pink from Specialty graphics. I could cut some pink fashion film and layer underneath so the black doesn't show through. Very disappointed.

 Is it worth all the trouble?
Reviewed by Kristi 2/12/2012 4:54:11 PM

I used the silver on a navy shirt and it looks great. I also layered it on top of white Premium Plus, and it looked great. BUT, it was difficult to weed (though I found doing a double cut did help). And, since it's more expensive than, say the holographic, then you have to decide if it really is worth the trouble. I guess if you can make your money back on it, then it is.

 It is worth the extra extra
Reviewed by Susan 12/14/2011 8:38:48 PM

It is more difficult to weed. So far I have 5 colors (light pink, gold, silver, pink and royal) in the glitter flake. I like it and continue to sell it. It has great impact on dark colored shirts and have had many repeat orders. Now that I have worked with it, I am good with the weeding (definitely not good for small details) and allow for the extra time it takes. I am ordering red and black now. The light pink is very pretty on white.

 Amazing sparkle
Reviewed by Dennis 12/12/2011 10:53:49 AM

This material can light up any design. While more effort to weed, and maybe not desirable for intricate designs, we have great success with dance/cheer/holiday type applications and our customers are excited when they see it. Will continue to be in our stable.

 Difficult and time consuming on large designs
Reviewed by jane smith 11/15/2011 10:35:53 AM

The glitter flake vinyl is very neat and washes up well if you wash it inside out as directed. As it says on the abpove review smaller designs are hard to weed and crumbles easily making it very difficult and time consuming to get the design to look great. Also, certain fonts and designs are hard to weed and the edge of the designs are rigid. It looks great when used with simple designs and fonts that weed easily.

I won't be getting this stuff anymore - small designs are very difficult to weed, it's not vinyl, it's like paper and tears very easily. It also curls a lot when cutting.

 Pink Glitter Flake on Black = :(
Reviewed by Susan 10/26/2011 9:36:46 PM

Unfortunately I did not catch the disclaimer that the pink glitter flake turns iridescent when applied to dark fabrics. The sample image shown on the black shirt with the chain and key in gold and heart in what looks like pink is misleading. I applied the pink glitter flake to a black/white plaid flannel scarf and it has pinked up a bit on the black, but it definately is not pink. I am very disappointed as this really limits what you can do with this media. Anyone have any suggestions........
