We use Allureglow's product:

It's been years and not a single complaint!

What we have been running is thicker and you can see it. I have seen other stuff in stores that's thinner, barely visible but glows like really well..

That is what this stuff is. We have used their discharge, HSA and powder(although looking at their site I do not see the powder anymore) all of them yo really can not see on the shirt like you would a plastisol.

The Allureglow is awesome. Especially the discharge. Is Halloween coming early this year?

We used it, it's way better than anything else we've tried.  That said the customer couldn't understand why they just didn't "glow out of the box" Yeah, they literally thought it would never stop glowing.  I couldn't explain to them that about the only things that glow forever are radioactive.

Allureglow is great like others have said! we have been having issues with their powder working with discharge ink though.

We started using glow from a newer company in Chicago

Do you mix the powder into a base (plastisol or discharge) how much do you use? I took a quick look at the site it looks like they do not have ready to print ink...
Thanks.

Never mind. I kept looking and found the information I was looking  for.

When you dig grave will you make it shallow so that I can feel the rain?

We also use the Allureglow, plastisol, we only have a couple of jobs for it, but a big one is coming up on white shirts, with a space ship, stars, headline that will all glow, it should look pretty cool.

I've used Allureglow too. Works like a champ. A few years ago we did a two color glow print using the aqua and the green with different daytime colors. Doing another single color next week.
