Is BNG doing anything with Jim Pollock during the Phish Holiday Run this year?

yea it was only supposed to be the heart. Did you charge it a lot? The one here was not too faint and stayed on for a bit.
I would say it didn't show at all with just room light, which is generally the most realistic scenario. I don't really feel like you should have to shine a light directly on purpose to get a glow. That said, I did try a flashlight also and it was pretty meh. I realize this is going to sound more upset than I really am. I don't really care if it glows, except I would expect more when it's advertised. Also, does anyone else think the green was an odd color for the title when it doesn't glow? It doesn't really fit the rest of the color palette, imo. I still think it's a great poster overall.

100%. I actually thought the green in the original image was just representative of the glow layer originally, before somebody from BNG popped on here to correct me. Then I thought "Hmm... that's an interesting color choice." I still think they look 'nice' - just not sure if one of them will make it up on the wall. :pint:

you kinda do have to shine it directly to get an instant reaction. if not yeah it takes alot of light exposure then quickly turning off the lights to complete darkness to see any glow inks.

black lights are the best for 'fast' charges.

the stout flight of the conchords print a few years back with R2D2 and C-3PO on it had the strongest glow of any print i've ever seen.
