I want to make my own stickers that have that nice glitter texture. For that I would need to print my design on top of some shiny paper. I know I can buy some but I want to make my own design patterns on the shiny paper. How can I make it?
He didn't ask how to get the design ONTO the paper, he asked how to MAKE the paper himself. I think vapor deposition is a bit extreme for home-made paper. Of course, I'm assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that he doesn't mean reflective paper, just paper with a shiny coat, as per his subject line.

I don't think the multiple interpretations of the question should be restricted until the OP clarifies the question.I know I can buy some but I want to make my own design patterns on the shiny paper. How can I make it?
I'm sorry but your second post did not clarify much.Hi everyone thanks for your responses, I did try to research how to make it but the information I found on google just talked about making reflective paper without a specific pattern.
So to clarify things - there’s reflective paper, and when you move it around you can see a distinct pattern of glitter on it, whether it’s diagonal lines, circular lines or whatever. How can I make that pattern of glitter?
After I make that pattern then I would print my design on top of it.
A search for "reflective ink" gives many hits. You can buy it on Amazon. There is even a hit for screen printing using reflective inks.What about using a special printer ink to print it directly onto a sheet? Does such ink exist? A reflective ink?
