Do you remember the self adhesive plastic stars that glow in the dark for about another half hour after you have put out the light in the room ? Now we can offer you the same effect on a button-badge by printing you design (or part of it) in a special glow-in-the-dark ink. This kind of ink saves up the light of the sun or the interior light, en glows up as soon as the room or another space gets dark.
This phenomena repeats itself as soon as the badge sees the daylight again. The glow-in-the-dark buttons are not only a fun gadget for children, but also for the young people: for parties, in blacklight surroundings, these kind of buttons are even more visible.
Glow-in-the-dark production can be applied on our basic range of buttons. Concrete, it implies a regular printing procedure in combination with offset printing. A minimal quantity of 500 buttons is advised for this kind of production, but it is also possible for smaller quantities. Delivery time can take a few days longer then for regular printed button-badges.
The special luminous ink is white with a light green shine to it, and works best on a black or dark coloured background. For ex. If you want part of the logo or text to light up in the dark, than a white cutout will give the best result.
Also it’s always better to send us 2 artworkfiles: 1 for the offset printing and 1 for the glow-in-the-dark print.
Example moon and stars:
- a file where the moon and stars are cutout in white for the offset printing, and
- and a file with the moon and the stars in black for the glow-in-the-dark printing.
