I love to use glitter vinyl on my projects. The sparkle and shimmer just add that extra special touch to everything I make. After today, Siser Sparkle glitter vinyl will be my go to product for glitter vinyl. Let me tell you why.
One thing I have struggled with though it with most glitter vinyl products, you have to make sure that the glitter is only on the top layer. This is because of the rough texture on the surface of the product. It makes it really hard to layer other products on top of that rough surface.

Siser is changing the Glitter Vinyl world!
Siser vinyl is changing the world of glitter vinyl with their brand new line of Sparkle vinyl. Sparkle Heat Transfer vinyl is made to be soft to the touch. The glitter is actually embedded into the vinyl. This ensures that the glitter will not flake off, and gives the product a smooth finish that allows you to easily layer your glitter vinyl designs!

Not only is the Sparkle Heat Transfer vinyl beautiful to look at, and smooth to to the touch, but it is also so easy to cut with your Cricut! Seriously . . . when I was cutting and weeding the vinyl for this project I must have said “I love this stuff!” a dozen times!
Cricut Cutting Settings:
Trust me! There is no need to use the special glitter vinyl settings for this product!
I cut the design for this shirt from a SVG file that I purchased from DesignBundles.net. If you would like to purchase this same SVG file you can click HERE. If you would like to learn more about what a SVG file is, you can check out my tutorial on that HERE.
I am not going to go through all of the steps of working with a SVG file or how to cut the various layers of this shirt, since I have shared those in past tutorials on this site. I listed the links to my detailed tutorials about making shirts at the end of this post in case you need to reference any of them.

I prefer to use Siser brand vinyl for my iron on projects. I feel that is the best quality brand of iron on vinyl out there, and it weeds the easiest. For permanent vinyl I like StarCraft vinyl. People have asked me why not Cricut brand, since I use a Cricut machine. Personally I just do not like the way the Cricut vinyl cuts or weeds. I think you should find the brand you love and work with that product. Test things out for yourself. Sometimes it is just a personal preference like how some people would rather have Pepsi products over Coke products.
So once you find your brand of vinyl, where should you buy it? If your favorite brand is sold at the local craft store, then you are lucky in the fact that you can pretty much garantee that you can run to the store and pick up vinyl when ever you need it.
For me, Siser was not always sold in the stores, as it is now, so I had to get it from online retailers. Again, this is where you can either go with your personal preference of stores or go where the best deal is. One day the best price might be at one store, and then the next week it might be from a different retailer. We all do this when we sometimes pick up toliet paper at the grocery store, but then we also get it at Target when it is on sale.
I also love that I can order large rolls or small sheets when ordering Siser online. This can give you a larger variety of choices and allow to to save money on larger orders. To make sure you are getting the best price for your vinyl, make sure to check out my Vinyl Buyers Guide. Because of that, I will always share all of the different resource I am connected to and you can choose which one is best for you!

Heat Transfer Warehouse is another supplier that I love, and they are actually somewhat close to me. Their headquarters are in North Dakota and I am in Minnesota. They even have their own line of vinyl, and they are partnering with other companies to really bring you a wide variety of products.
You may have noticed that there are a lot of retailers that only ship to places in the United States. This is because shipping prices can really add up. I want to be able to help my followers find their products no matter where they live and that is why I was happy to find some retailers that ship world wide! That is where the next two compnaies come in as options.
