Hi! I'm looking for a white sparkly paper that can be printed on with a laser or inkjet printer but not have the glitter fall off. Does anyone know of a good one? Or alternatively, is there a way to make the cardstock shimmer after printing but also not have the glitter fall off everywhere? Thanks!!

Shimmer or glitter? If it's just shimmer you want, I'd try one of Bazzill's shimmer papers.

Thanks Cindy312! Basically looking for printable cardstock that has some glitter built-in. I tried a Core'dinations brand one but it didn't print evenly.

Pearl Glimmer Mist, as long as your ink is water resistant.

Print it in bold (dark as you can) put some kind of double-sided adhesive film on top of it (Ranger makes one, so does SookWang) and then cover it with fine, transparent mica. Once the mica is burnished onto the surface, it's going to stay stuck.

Paper Wishes sells a clear vinyl that has holographics on it (it is sparkly like glitter). Print your stuff on plain paper, then lay this stuff over it. I did a girl in a skating costume and the glitter looked like snow.
