How Does Glow-In-The-Dark Printing Work?

Glow-in-the-dark printing is a two-part process. First, a layer of ink is screen printed to create a nice bright base for the glow-in-the-dark ink to be applied to. Once the first layer is dried, a special ink is applied that will produce a glow-in-the-dark effect. You can apply glow over the entire base or even just use it in highlight spots on your design to create a really custom look. 

Glow-in-the-dark shirts are machine washable and the effect should last the lifetime of the shirt. Once you are ready for your shirt to glow, charge it under fluorescent or black light, and voila! The longer you expose the image, the longer and brighter it will glow in the dark. Excellent for your team, group, glow run, black-light, or night-time event.

Pro Tips for Designing and Wearing Your Glow Shirts

Glow-in-the-dark t-shirts are a fantastic way to blend creativity with a bit of fun in your apparel. Here's what you need to know to get the most out of your design.

Shirt Color Choices

It's best to select dark-colored shirts with a light-colored print. For example, using white ink on black shirts creates a striking visual contrast that amplifies the glow when in dark environments. This combination not only highlights the glowing feature but also ensures that the design stands out vividly against the dark fabric. 

Ink Colors 

It's important to remember that the intensity of the glow effect can vary based on the color of the ink. Colored inks generally do not produce as vibrant a glow as white or lighter-colored inks. The darker the ink, the less pronounced the glowing effect will be. 

This variation occurs because lighter colors naturally reflect more light, enhancing the glow's visibility and brightness. When selecting ink colors for a glow-in-the-dark shirt, consider how the color choice will affect the overall glow intensity, especially if visibility in dark conditions is a priority.

Recommended Fonts

When selecting fonts, choose styles that maximize the visibility and impact of the glow effect. Simple, clean fonts like Arial, Verdana, or Helvetica work well as they ensure that the letters are distinct and the glow is evenly distributed across the text. These types of fonts not only ensure clarity and legibility but also contribute to a more striking visual appearance when illuminated. Avoid using overly intricate or script fonts, as the fine lines may not hold the glow as effectively and can become difficult to discern in the dark. 

Design Flexibility

You can choose to have the entire design printed with glow-in-the-dark ink, which ensures that the whole image illuminates uniformly in low-light conditions. Alternatively, you can select specific parts of the design to glow, highlighting certain elements of your graphic. This selective application draws attention to particular areas, making the design more intriguing and eye-catching in the dark.

Specialty Inks

Our special translucent glow ink is completely invisible under normal daylight conditions. This subtle appearance makes it an excellent choice for those who prefer a clean and understated look during the day. Yet, when darkness falls, this same ink transforms dramatically, emitting a vivid green glow that is both striking and unexpected. 

Charging the Glow

Those looking to achieve a quick and intense glow can use a fluorescent or black light to charge the ink. This technique rapidly energizes the glowing properties of the ink, enhancing the intensity of the light emitted in dark environments. By exposing the ink to these types of light sources, you can ensure that your shirt not only glows more brightly but also more quickly once you step into darkness. 

With these tips, you can create a personalized t-shirt that not only looks good but also provides an added playful glow when the lights go out. Whether for parties, casual evenings, or unique gifts, glow-in-the-dark t-shirts are sure to make an impression.

How to Take Care of Your Glow-in-the-Dark Shirts

Proper care is essential to maintain the longevity and effectiveness of the glow-in-the-dark feature on your t-shirts. Here are tips to help you keep your glow apparel in top condition.

Washing/Drying Instructions

  • Turn the shirt inside out before washing. This protects the glow-in-the-dark print from excessive rubbing and abrasion that can occur during the wash cycle.
  • Use cold water for washing, as hot water can degrade the glow ink over time.
  • Select a gentle cycle on your washing machine.
  • Avoid high heat in the dryer. Instead, opt for air drying or use low heat if necessary.


  • If ironing is necessary, never iron directly over the glow print. Always turn the shirt inside out to iron it, and set your iron to a lower setting.


  • Store your glow-in-the-dark shirts in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Exposure to strong light for prolonged periods can reduce the glow’s intensity as the inks can become less effective.

By following these care guidelines, you can ensure that your glow-in-the-dark shirts continue to light up the night for a long time. Whether for special occasions or casual wear, taking proper care of these shirts will keep the glow bright and the fabric looking fresh.
