How It Works

Glow Threads are the first full interactive Glow in the Dark shirts. With our UV Mini Light or UV Laser Pointer you are able to create glow designs on every piece of the shirt. This includes the front, back and even the sleeves. The UV Mini light is used for close up designs and effects like shadows. The UV Laser Pointer can draw on the shirt from a distance up to 30ft away. The glow effect lasts about 1 minute depending on how dark it is. 

Create Custom Designs

Different UV Lights

• UV Mini Light is for close up designs and creating shadow effects

• UV Laser Pointer is for drawing on the shirt from a farther distance. The Laser can draw on the shirt from up to 30ft away

The Story

We had designed this shirt a while back but wasn't sure if it was possible to make. It wasn't easy for us to come up with an innovative shirt that has the ability to glow everywhere. We dedicated a lot of hours working and developing a way to implement this glow effect on clothing. We are happy to say that we have produced a high quality product that our customers will really enjoy. No other product out there gives you the ability to draw on every piece of the shirt. It's unique and its a product that we know you will love.

Rewards

Sizing

After hearing a lot of feedback from you guys, we've decided to offer youth sizes as well! The shirt specs are below.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing - From the beginning the manufacturing process has been the most challenging for us.The funds we raise will go directly towards improving the current manufacturing equipment and improving the production process for these t-shirts.

It will be challenging to spread the word and receive enough pledges to become successfully funded. We've worked really hard on these shirts and really want everyone to have a chance to have one of their own.
