Confetti & Streamer Pro Tips & Tricks


How many people do you want to cover with your effect?


Fluttering confetti squares, rectangles, shapes in biodegradable and dissolving tissue, bright metallics

Controlled Look:  Use bulk rectangles or die-cut shapes, hand-tossed, dropped from a balcony, or sifted through a confetti/snow cradle.  Plan 1 to 1.5 pounds per 20-second drop.


Custom, dissolving rose petal confetti for wedding, shower, theater, party, parade.

Exuberant Look:  Use Confetti Flick Sticks and Handthrow Streamers - order one per guest.



Flashy double-rolled tissue/metallic streamers for theater, party, cheer

Link The Crowd:  Launch sleeves of Streamers and Confetti with our Handheld Launchers or RC-2 Cannons. Space your launchers every 5-10 feet.  Use 2 sleeves per Handheld Launcher; 6 total per RC-2 launch.  Multiply by how many launches you need.



Political election/convention confetti, biodegradable, in bulk

Shower Them All:  Launch bulk confetti via Shot Max, Cyclone blowers and massive drops.  Contact us and we'll help you plan.
