Art Glitter's Amazing Story

Barbara Glitter Queen Barbara Trombley founded Art Institute Glitter in 1981. She began creating greetings cards by writing with glue on card stock and flooding the area with different, brilliant glitters.

"When I gave my cards to people I noticed how the cards and the glitter always made people smile. I decided I wanted to make a career of bringing that sparkle into peoples' lives," Barbara says; hence, the beginning of Art Institute Glitter.

Now, over thirty three years later, Art Institute Glitter, Inc. has over 400 unique colors in 11 different types and distributes glitter all over the world, including countries such as Britain, Africa, and Australia.
