This is how mica gets on our calendars


Advent calendars with glittering details are part of our permanent product portfolio. We have been offering this for 80 years. Glitter used to be applied by hand. Employees who were sitting on the assembly line took the calendars off the line and pulled them through bowls filled with glitter particles - that was pretty laborious! Then came the glitter revolution: in the 1970s, Tim Sellmer, son of our company founder, developed a machine that automated glittering. This Glitzermaschine has been in use almost every day for over 50 years and does its job faithfully and reliably. Of course, improvements need to be made here and there. But we are particularly proud of our machine and would never want to be without it again. She is unique.


When was the first advent calendar printed on paper?


Paper Advent calendars have a long tradition and can be traced back to a very specific person. Gerhard Lang, who lived from 1881 to 1974, was a pastor's son from Maulbronn in Swabia. He is considered to be the inventor of the first printed - albeit doorless - advent calendar. This came on the market in Munich in 1908. At that time it was sold under the name Christmas calendar. Colored drawings could be cut out of cardboard and gradually glued onto a cardboard motif template. This created a colorful and atmospheric scene for Christmas Eve. From 1945 Richard Sellmer brought Advent calendars with opening doors onto the market. Today, Sellmer is the epitome of high-quality and unusual paper Advent calendars that are designed with attention to detail.
