The Art of Confetti and Streamer Design: Creating Eye-Catching Visuals


Confetti and streamers are indispensable elements for any special occasion, transcending the notion of mere paper fragments strewn across a venue. They possess a magical quality that can metamorphose spaces and events into breathtaking spectacles.

As a leading global provider of special effects, Flutter FETTI® is eager to unveil the secrets behind the enchanting allure of confetti and streamers.

Decoding Confetti Design:

Confetti, those tiny, celebratory pieces crafted from tissue paper, or PVC metallic film represent a modern rendition of an age-old tradition. In historical celebrations like parades and weddings, people used to toss grains and sweets. Today, confetti comes in a myriad of colors, shapes, and sizes, with various methods of creation.

The most prevalent type of confetti used to involve shredding paper using scissors or paper shredders, akin to the iconic ticker-tape parades. Alternatively, smaller pieces known as 'chads' could be produced using hole punches or ticket punches. But now for a touch of uniqueness, there are specialty shaped confetti selections like Flutter FETTI’s handmade rectangular shape which flutters, flies and slowwwly floats downward hanging in the air for a long time creating a spectacular special effect.

Crafting Streamers:

Streamers, those graceful ribbons of color that gracefully dance through the air during celebrations, are created by cutting strips of tissue paper or metallic film then shooting them out using hand flick confetti cannons or Co2 powered cannons . Designing streamers demands meticulous attention to detail, considering factors such as length, width, and material, which impact their flow and descent. Depending on the creation method, streamers may cascade slowly and gracefully or in a swift, more jubilant manner.

Similar to confetti, experimenting with colors is key when designing streamers. Whether opting for a single unified color or mixing several hues, the possibilities are endless.

In the realm of confetti and streamers, Flutter FETTI® stands as a beacon of creativity and innovation, offering a diverse range that elevates any occasion to extraordinary heights. Embrace the creativity behind these festive elements and make your events truly unforgettable especially using our hand flick cannon's, our Co2 cannons or our X6 Version 3 electric cannon to disperse the streamers into the air.

The Excitement Behind Confetti and Streamer Design: Crafting Captivating Visuals

Confetti and streamers are indispensable elements for any special occasion, transcending the notion of mere paper fragments strewn across a venue. They possess a magical quality that can metamorphose spaces and events into breathtaking spectacles.

As a leading global provider of special effects, Flutter FETTI® is eager to unveil the secrets behind the enchanting allure of confetti and streamers.

How are confetti and streamers used in special effects?

The use of confetti and streamers extends far beyond simple hand-tossed celebrations.

Here are many unique ways Flutter FETTI® maximizes its potential:


The Flutter FETTI team doesn't recommend you ever grab a handful of confetti or die cut tissue or metallic products out of a bag.

The reason is your hand will smash the products and you'll have a dismal effect in the air.

Instead we have many cannons which will launch confetti or streamers offering a beautiful elegant special effect.

For example;


Flutter FETTI® invented the hand flick cannons. We use proprietary specifications to manufacture each cannon so they work the first time EVERYTIME!

Because events are held in many different venues Flutter FETTI manufacturer's confetti hand flick cannons in various tube lengths. If your ceiling is low then the 6" cannon is perfect. If your ceiling is 10'- 12' then the 9" cannon would work. If your ceiling is 15' to 18' then choose the 14" cannon and finally if your ceiling is high use the 18" hand flick cannon to disperse confetti.

Flutter FETTI also offers the REVOLUTIONARY airless (meaning no Co2 required) to disperse streamers into the air. Generally it takes Co2 to shoot streamers into the air but Jim Watkins, our Master Confettiologist invented 9" and 18" cannons which can shoot streamers into the air with the flick of your wrist. Truly unbelievable affordable special effects.


Once again because the venue's ceiling varies Flutter FETTI offers 3 types of hand held cannons. The Quarter Turn Cannon, The Mega Blaster Cannon (which has a 2" barrel perfect to shoot die cut images out of it) and the Master Blaster Cannon.


Flutter FETTI offers 4 different Continuous Flow Cannons which include; the Baby Gerb, the 3" and 6" Gerbs and the Surprise Box . All these offer an amazing dramatic visual display.


Our X6 Version 3 can shoot 2" X 40' metallic streamers 110' into the air for a spectacular special effect. It can shoot streamers so far because it uses electricity and a single 16 Gram Co2 cylinder which is more powerful than using compressed air.
