A glittering machine for Sellmer Advent Calendars

What may not be missing for the vast majority of people on an advent calendar? Correct! Glitter! Because only the glitter makes the Advent calendar really Christmas.

Have you ever wondered how the glitter comes on the Christmas calendar? At Richard Sellmer Verlag has been around for almost 80 years Advent calendar with glitter. In recent times, the glitter was applied by hand. The Advent Calendar, which was already applied glue ran on a production line. On the side of the assembly line was sitting in the inside, the shells with glitter in front of him. One took one of the advent calendars from the assembly line and had to pull him once through the bowl and he radiated in Christmas glory.

With ever greater order figures, it became increasingly unational to doing the struggle of the calendars in this way. It just took too long. Now good advice was expensive! Because a glittering machine did not exist on the market. But what would be a Swabian tinker when he had scared off. Tim Sellmer, the son of the company founder Grünbeld, tumbled and crafted and thought: Even is the man! And so he developed and built in the 1970s briefly even such a machine.

And since then, the good piece (almost) always runs reliably and provides our advent calendars with the last Christmas splendor. Granted: Mitlerweile the machine has already come quite nice to the years and always have to be made to improvements. But even today, one searches in vain for a glittering machine that could apply in large quantities of mica on our calendars.

And so the good piece is picked up and maintained and is also used for you almost every day for more than 50 years. And we hope and wish you a lot, many years faithful to your service!

So that you can make a picture of how the glittering machine works, we have created a movie here:
