Default Glow in the Dark Rhinestone Transfers?

Hello!

I'm hoping someone out there can help me out on this. I have a client that needs custom glow in the dark rhinestone transfers. They are not flexible on this and need to have glow in the dark rhinestones.

None of our regular rhinestone people can do glow in the dark. Does anyone know of a company that can?

Thank you very much for any help you can offer!

I don't think there are any glow in the dark rhinestones.

There are no glow in the dark rhinestones out that I am aware of. I've been looking too. What I am trying for my customer is widely spaced rhinestones on top of (holes cut for stones to touch fabric) a glow in the dark piece of vinyl. Don't know how it will work yet since I won't put it together until tonight

Hello Again!

Thanks for the responses! I know they existed once because the client brought in a sample shirt with them on. Unfortunately she received the shirt a long time ago as a sample and can't remember who the sample was from.

It sounds like a few other people are looking for these as well. If I ever find anything I'll pass it along on this thread!

I have heard of glow in the dark rhineSTUDS but not rhinestones. Are you sure they were stones and not sutds?

Saw some glow in the dark studs on Ebay, so there has to be a supplier out there somewhere

If you can't find glow in the dark rhinestones, maybe you can make something else they might like?Try taking glow in the dark vinyl and make little circles to place rhinstones in? For example make circles a little bigger than the stone, then cut out circles within them to place the stones. It might be a lit of work depending on how many stones you have, but it might look pretty cool too.

I think I found a company to do glow in the dark rhinestones. Reportedly 16 cut facets. I've ordered some. It takes 2-3 weeks, but hopefully they will get them done and shipped sooner Hope this is not an excercise in futility!!

You could also use a glow in the dark vinyl and make fake rhinestones out of it instead.

UPDATE!!!

Just got my sample of glow in the dark rhinestones in and I am LOVING them. I thought they would be kind of dull and thick white under normal light, but indeed they are not. They are sought of opaque, have good facets, and actually catch a little bling under normal light. I am very pleased and can't wait to add these to my inventory.

Okay, as soon as you get them in your inventory let me know. I want some.

Default Re: Glow in the Dark Rhinestone Transfers?

Hmm..not to rain on anyone's parade, but it seems a weird combination...rhinestones and glow in the dark. It sounds expensive to get a glow in the dark look. Usually you want lots of light to make the stones sparkle, but this is the opposite. Since it's dark, do you really want to spend that much when you can achieve that look with other lower cost materials? I guess I should ask the price before I actually make that statement. Do they run more, less, or the same as regular stones?

Neat concept, just not sure how useful that would be if the cost is much more than glow in the dark vinyl.

Default Re: Glow in the Dark Rhinestone Transfers?

Do you have glow in the dark rhinestuds? Id like to see a rhinestone vs rhinestud visual comparison.

I know Trying to take pictures of rhinestones can be tricky,everything always looks way better in real life.Thanks for testing and posting your pictures.Id like to know the pricing for 500gross of SS10 glow in the dark rhinestones vrs glow in the dark rhinestuds.

I dont have either so I cant test them...I'd like to shine one of those huge million candle flashlights on both of them for a few minutes and bring them to the dark.Which one glows brighter?which glow last longer?and any other descriptive nariatives on the general differences between the two.

I have not found any glow in the dary rhinestuds, only rhinestones and nailheads (flat & round).

Contrary to my thoughts, the GID rhinestones actually do have some bling factor in the daylight. The 16 facets allows them to catch and reflect a good amount of light. As far as glow in the dark, the effect of the rhinestones is equal to that of the glow in the dark vinyl.
