Shiny, med size, not too small, and sturdy
I just used about 40 of these in a card project to all my friends. These are very easy to use, easy to press the two back prongs in the back apart. Sometimes the metal is so thick or hard that you cannot easily press the prongs apart, but no problem with these. I used pliers over cloth to squeeze the snowflake brads a bit flatter so that they would not create a noticeable bump in the back of the cardstock panel.
If I could request something by the manufacturer it would be this: Please make an assortment of snowflake shapes instead of all of these being an identical shape and size. I prefer more dainty shaped flakes, as well as varying sizes, even larger than these, to much smaller. These are fairly industrial strength looking if you know what I am trying to say. But all in all, a very nice product.
