Glow in the dark balloons
« on: February 16, 2011, 03:05:08 PM »
Hi

Wondering if any of you have tried the qualatex balloons with glow in the dark stars on? The blurb says they work well under black light, but I want to use them outdoors, wondering if they will glow under those conditions?

Hi,  used them once for a party but they really only show up in pitch black,  did not really show their beauty with the dj lights that were on in the hall.  

Hope of some help ?

I was not really impressed. I would not sell them with any conviction to a client.

I hope I am not teaching my mother to suck eggs, but I just want to check that people realise that when it says black light in means a uv light (neon blue/purple type lights used at discos a lot make white glow).

Also it helps if they are charged up with sun light they don't work as well if they have been kept in the dark.

I have not found these balloons to be brilliant but they do work better if charged up with sun light first.

Thanks so much for your feedback ... it was not for a client, so to speak, but a special occassion nonetheless ... it is to be held outdoors in the dark and would have been really effective if they had a good glow lol ...  have decided to just use plain balloons

Thanks again
Nikki  :)
