Leatherhead printer's glowing day-glo

 
Mention the words day-glo and most people think you are talking about disco and the 1970s. But actually day-glo inks have been around since the 1930s and they are very much part of current printing trends. Across everything from packaging and consumer goods to plastics, textile dyes and coatings, day-glo inks are having a come-back in the post recession era when we all need a bit of colour in our lives. 
 
As well as symbolising youth, action and optimism, according to DayGlo, their fluorescent colours are also up to three times brighter than conventional colours, so they are worth considering if you have materials you really want to 'pop' and stand out. Packaging and magazine and brochure covers really benefit from the stand out inks that DayGlo produces, and for those in the security and safety industry, DayGlo has also developed its technologies to now include glow in the dark pigments, and marking paints for low-light conditions.
 
The future is definitely bright.
