Thread: Large Shell Sequins 48mm Order Thread (Vector Enterprises)

  1. #1

    Large Shell Sequins 48mm Order Thread (Vector Enterprises)

    This thread is for ordering information on the Large 47mm Sequins from Victor Enterprises. This thread is also for organizing and splitting orders between multiple buyers, or trading colors.


    Specs:
    Size: 48mm
    Thickness: 1mm

    Prices:

    High crystal shine - $35 / Kg (diamond shine/ rainbow)
    Real crystal shine - $ 36 / Kg (Ice shine)
    Pearl - $30 (matte)
    Crystal Rainbow - $32 / Kg (iridescent)
    Holographic dots / stripes - $30

    The minimum order is lowered to 3 Kg. Which means 3 kg will be the minimum parcel that will be sent out to each person. Minimum order is 3 Kg per design/shape and 1 Kg per colour(stock). So for a 3kg order you can get 3 colors. (or 2.2 lbs of each color).

    It has been estimated that it takes approximately 3 pounds to make one tail, closer to 4 if you cover the entirety of the fluke as well as the body. You can sew with a sewing machine straight through the top of the sequin to attach it, instead of having to sew through the small hole at the top.


    Shipping:
    The shipping for a parcel under 5 Kg (Fedex, DHL) is $20 per kg, and for parcels above 5 Kg is $16 per Kg.

    Color chart:

    Here is a color chart for their products. To see more of what the colors look like, and how the different shines look, you can visit their website and look through the products pictured. They can cut the shell sequins from any sheet they produce. You can also look through the PDF they included in their email to me, which you can download here.




    They also make the sequin Sheets. These are PVC/ Plastic sheets. These sheets are rolls that can come Laminated or Solid Opaque. Ask for Grade A(virgin) or Grade B(recycled - mostly used). You would have to inquire for full sheet pricing.
    They can make any of the designs on the webpage and custom designs. Any of the variety of 10 – 12 types of base sheets can be used to cut out the designs.


    Price breakdowns:
    Estimated need for tail- 3lbs or 1.4kg. This is an estimate that depends on spacing and coverage.

    Half of a 3kg order is 3.3lbs, so you only need half an order to make a tail, and a full order can make 2 tails. Many would want to split 1 order with another, so here are the price breakdowns for both with shipping from manufacturer to a single customer included.

    High crystal shine (diamond shine/rainbow)
    $165 total for order
    $82.50 for half & per tail

    Real crystal shine
    $168 for full order
    $84.00 for half & per tail

    Pearl
    $150 for full order
    $75 for half & per tail

    Crystal Rainbow
    $156 for full order
    $78 for half & per tail

    Holographic dots/stripes
    $150 for full order
    $75 for half & per tail

    Mermaid Shelly's Grotto also sells these sequins in their boutique and online via etsy.
    You will want to order from her if:
    -you want a wider selection of colors, rather than the limited amount by ordering
    -you want limited quantities, as she sells them by the pound
    -if you are not comfortable ordering over seas
    -if you do not want to wait for the order to be made and shipped
    -if you are not comfortable ordering a 3kg but also do not want to split an order with others

    Also if you would like a sequin tail, but are not the crafting/sewing type, Mermaid Shelly makes amazing tails with these sequins. She is a highly recommended tailmaker.

    Shelly sells the sequins for $50 a pound plus shipping. You can find them on her etsy, here (http://www.etsy.com/shop/MermaidShellysGrotto), or you can visit or contact her shop.

    I have communicated with Vector as well and I am getting conflicting info on the Minimum order. I was told recently that the minimum was 5kg rather than 3kg. I would be much more able to purchase 3 kg than 5. BUt they sent this to me a couple of days ago. So just in case anyone else is interested in ordering, there may be a different Minimum order.

    Normally the minimum order is 6kg. However he graciously lowered it to 3kg for us. Perhaps mention that you are with the mermaid community and that Mermaid Iona noted that the minimum order was kindly lowered by him for our group and that you would like to take advantage of that great opportunity Let us know how it goes!

    Since this is a thread to help organize orders, I'll be making it a sticky so it doesn't get buried.

    Is express permission really needed when links are provided, and the photos are public anyway? That's like saying you can't link to any photo ever unless you get the owner's permission.

    They are linked, yes. But the links are broken, each one I have tried does not work.

    Edit: Talked with Iona, she's going to check/fix the links

    It's because the colon is missing from the links (after the http). Either it needs to be added, or everything before "www" needs to be removed.
    In any case, until it is fixed, if anyone wants to view the pages they can remove the "http//" before the link.

    Winged Mermaid Iona .... Thank You so much for making this information available, and with links to boot. If anyone is interesting in splitting an order let me know. Thanks

    I'm wondering what it would look like with a tail completely covered in those kind of shell sequins. If anyone has a picture of what it looks like please post it up.If it looks good I might buy some

    oh nevermind!For some reason I didn't see the other images of the scales in use and after I took my nap it must have loaded them.

    OMG these shells are gorgeous and those tails are amazing. This is making a sequin tail more and more tempting!

    I originally found these and this is what I use for my tails. I was the only mer at MerPalooza with them. If you make one with them it will be like gaining new sequin mersisters! Yay!

    I love these!!!! And pretty much squealed with joy! I think I'm going to make my tail out of Neoprene and these sequins!!!
    I'm working on several costuming commissions at them moment and other projects, but will probably place and order come the new year. Left me know if anyone would be interested in doing a group order around that time!
