There's a huge difference in price. The average ink costs around $50/gal. Phosphorescent ink is about $200/gal. So it's about 4 times as much. But as others have said, other than the price of the ink, it's no different to print with. So the only thing extra you should pay for is the extra cost of ink. But if you supply your own ink (if your screenprinter doesn't have it), then I'm sure that'll help with pricing. But the business aspect is all up to the business. But it's not unusual for people to bring in their own ink for certain jobs.Hello,
I'm a newbie and interested in printing glow-in-the-dark shirts. I understand that it is more expensive than the ordinary inks used on shirts, may I know the ballpark figure on the diff of phosphorescent inks to the ordinary inks?
Would it be a better idea if I just supply the printer with that ink and if so, where do you think can I buy phosphorescent?
Thank you for your suggestions in advance. Im really hoping to get some advice. Thank you!
As for luminophore it is completely safe. It is a fine-grained non-flammable powder, and does not contain any radioactive isotopes.It's carcinogenic and was causing severe results in people. Instead of Glow in the dark ink you can use UV ink, and in use of Tattoo Industry. it is considered safe, additionally working with it is unlike working with regular ink, its thinner, stays in the skin different and can be a pain to get decent coverage with.
Keep in mind, Glow in the dark has to be able to absorb light in order to emit light without a light source, whereas UV ink reflects light from a UV light source such as a black light.
Okay thanks.Sorry, but I'm not offering to make one. But I have powder (Luminophore) and it's easy to make glowing T-shirts with it. Then you can sell them all over.
