Shape versus Size

At GLITTER HAVEN® we use the 'shape' of a glitter particle to refer to its dimensions (how many mm on the largest side) and its outline (whether it be a standard hex or a unique shape like cog, moon or heart). Some example shapes are 0.2mm hex, 8mm unicorn, 3.0mm hex, tinsel or flake).

See a list of hex shapes HERE, a list of shape categories HERE and a comparison HERE

At GLITTER HAVEN® we use the term 'size' to refer to the volume of an item included in the product. Generally our glitter comes in XS, S, M, L and XL sizes, but some products will have sizes measured in ml, grams, sets, or items.
