Q: When do orders ship?
A: Orders ship out ASAP. We try to keep our turnaround time down to 2 days. This time can increase during sale events. Please note: orders do not ship on Sunday or Holidays.
Q: Can I add to an existing order that I already submitted?
A: Please understand when I do this, everyone suffers. This takes time away from production. Not only does this slow down your order but others as well. Try to make sure you have all of your wanted items selected and planned before you submit your order.
Q: Return Policy?
A: All sales are final! If we do accept a return there is a 25% restocking fee!
Q: Do you make custom glitters?
A: Yes, we do. Click HERE to add the Custom Glitter item to your cart and in the notes let me know what colors you would like to mix.
Q: Why do some glitters cost more than others?
A: All glitters are not created equal. Some glitters may be made up of 5–12 glitters mixed together to make your favorite glitter. Some are cosmetic making them a softer and thinner material. These are just a couple of examples as to why prices may vary.

Q: Damaged Items / Missing Packages?
A: At Checkout you have the option to choose First Class (which has no insurance)
or Priority Shipping which comes with insurance. You also have the option to purchase Route Insurance. We are NOT responsible for packages once they have been handed over to the shipping company. USPS tends to handle the Priority Shipping items better than the First Class. Personally, I think it is worth the extra money to ensure your order gets there and arrives sooner than later.

A: Route is an insurance that allows you to visually track all of your online orders in one place. With dynamic maps and real-time shipping updates stay in the loop throughout every part of your delivery. Download the app to get started.

A: Every once in a while we run sales and in our Facebook Group you can find coupons that can be used. If you place an order before a sale we can NOT go back and issue you a credit if a sale starts the next day.
Q: How do I find your Facebook Group?

Q: How do the UV Glitters Work?
A: UV glitters will change colors when exposed to direct sunlight. The keyword is DIRECT. Just because it is bright outside doesn’t mean the sun is out. Overcast from clouds or UV blocking glass will keep the glitter from changing colors.

A: Thermal glitters will change colors when exposed to heat. Please keep in mind they may not have the desired effect when used on double walled drinkware.
Q: How do the glow glitters work?

Q: How do I make changes to my subscription?
A: Due to inconsistencies with Paypal, any changes that need to be made will require you to cancel your subscription and sign back up. If this makes the second payment for the month contact us and we will refund this for you. These changes include address changes or payment changes.
Q: If I sign up today, can I still get this month’s subscription?
A: Subscription boxes go out based on the payments for the previous month. This means the month you sign up you are paying for next month’s subscription. If you sign up early in the month there may be times when you feel like you have paid twice without receiving anything. This is due to your payment coming out early in the month while the subscriptions are still preparing to be shipped.
Q: What if I don’t like a color? Can I request a certain color or size of glitter to not be included in my subscription?
A: No. Everyone will receive the same glitter unless I set up a certain theme where this is happening on purpose. At that time, you still couldn’t just pick your own color.
Q: Will I be able to know what glitters are coming for the next month’s subscription?
A: No. Subscription contents are secret and are not revealed until they have been shipped. The surprise is part of the fun!
Q: What if I don’t have a PayPal account?
A: You may still subscribe to the monthly subscription! Check out as a PayPal guest using your debit or credit card.
