Glow in the dark screen printing is the process of creating screens in the same way and set-up as the standard screen printing process. The difference is that it allows for you to give an added effect and make the print, or parts of the print, glow in the dark. Once printed, the design looks grey or off-white but, when the lights go off, the ink will glow in the dark creating a bright and eye-catching print.
USES OF GLOW IN THE DARK SCREEN PRINTING:
Glow in the dark screen printing is a versatile printing technique, meaning that it works well on nearly all garment types, with the exception of garments which feature long fibres, for example fleeces.
This is a great option for fashion and retail clients as well as Marketing and PR agencies that have clients who want something that will differ from the standard mainstream screen printed designs. For the best results, the garment should be able to withstand heat, but if you have a specific garment and are unsure then please contact us and we’ll be happy to advise you.
