ONLY SUPPLIER OF THE LONGEST BURNING 70 CM & 90CM LONG and HEART SPARKLERS IN AUSTRALIA.
NOT JUST FOR WEDDINGS! Any celebration. PLEASE…...DO NOT use on days of Total Fire Ban and take care using at other times.
Sparklers make a wonderful accessory in weddings and parties. Sparklers are finding their way more and more into other types of celebrations. With their scintillating show of sparks, the humble sparkler is now being used to spice up the festivities at parties and weddings across the country.
At some weddings they are held by guests to form either a passageway or a sparkling tunnel for the married couple to pass through. They can be stuck into the ground to make a sparkling light-show effect at a reception.
Our sparklers are made from a length of mild steel wire, the wire core is dipped one or more times in a thick slurry of pyrotechnic composition that, when dry, coats the wire for approximately 2/3 of its length. Good quality, well-made sparklers should have their composition applied in a smooth, even coat without cracks or excessive bumpiness.
The wire and the composition should exhibit no signs of rust as the presence of rust indicates sparklers that have been subjected to high moisture conditions. Rusty sparklers will burn only with difficulty, if at all, and should not be used. Sparklers are for outdoor use only and CANNOT be carried with you or put in your luggage on ANY aeroplane.
ARE SPARKLERS DANGEROUS TO USE?
As with anything involving high temperatures, proper supervision of young children and adherence to correct lighting and handling methods is necessary in order to avoid careless accidents.
In order to avoid sparkler surprises on the day of your wedding or party, always test out your chosen sparkler a few weeks beforehand. Try some of the different lighting methods and decide which one will work the best for the event. If children will be present, decide how the sparklers will be handed out so that there will not be any possibility of unsupervised use of the items.
With every order we include our information sheet on how to light LOTS OF SPARKLERS EASILY, how to handle them and how to dispose of them.
Painted sparklers. Red, Gold, Blue, Silver.
Sparklers are normally gray in color, but can be lightly spray-painted whatever color you want. Choose good quality spray paint, such as Krylon, and remember to use a light, even coat. Let them dry out for a few days. One way is to stand them up in a pot of sand to dry. Always try a test sample before the big event to avoid unnecessary surprises.

SPARKLERS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE IN PACK SIZES AS BELOW.
Extra sparklers will keep for years if kept dry. The 3 minute is a long enough burn time for around 100 guests remaining at the end of the night. Remember 90 cm is LONG - and you will need to ensure they are used safely by kids (BIG and small!).
"But I want a 100cm sparkler”...well the difference between a 90cm and a 100cm is 10 cm of wire! (In fact some manufacturers bend the extra 10cm over so it fits in a 90cm pack!) No extra coating, just wire. One of the advantages is we can ship these for the same price as our 70cm as the carton is under 1 metre long (extra long cartons attract extra shipping). And your guests wont know the difference! OUR metal sparkler wire DOES NOT BEND, as some do, and conform to the Australian Standard with regard to the “fallout” of the sparkle.
Packs: Sparklers are packed in inner sleaves, unlike some suppliers we do not unpack your sparklers and therefore make them illegal as they are not in the required packaging. Also they are protected in transport. We use specific couriers ONLY - not illegally through the post! Sparklers cannot be returned under any circumstances, check with your venue FIRST before ordering.
Extra sparklers will keep for years, if kept dry...use them for parties, NYE etc.

DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL. NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL NOVEMBER 2018

The best way to light is with a blue flame lighter as below. $2 shops etc. have these.
WEDDING MATCH BOXES
Do you supply printed wedding or similar match boxes? No we do not.
Although it can look really cool to present a bundle of sparklers along with a custom designed printed pack of matches at the reception, the fact is that matches are not hot enough to use to light sparklers. Don’t waste your money on them.
Sparklers often require a fairly long time to light once the ignition source is applied to the tip of the sparkler. But matches generally don’t burn long enough to raise the composition of the sparkler to its ignition point.
Additionally, the hand of someone attempting to use matches will be uncomfortably close to the sparkler when it does light.
