If you are planning to start a business selling any glow light sticks or just want to own some, you will need to take into consideration these important tips before making the purchase.

How Long Can You Keep Them?

You know how important it is to check the expiry date on food items before you buy them? Well, this is the same scenario. Glow in the dark sticks are not going to last forever if you do not use them. They have a shelf life of around 18 months depending on the storage condition. If you are planning to purchase a few boxes of these glow light sticks, it is best to keep them in a cool dry place. Heat and humidity will shorten the lifespan of these sticks although it will make them glow brighter. But normally, people prefer to enjoy these sticks if they are able to glow longer. If you are unsure on how the product will be packaged, best to check with the seller as some may come individually wrapped or bulk wrapped. They could easily last longer if they come in foil packaging.

Glow Duration

When planning to buy any glow in he dark sticks, always find out from the seller about the glow duration. You do not want to buy any only to find out that they are able to glow for a few hours. Good quality ones are able to glow up to 18 hours. So if you are planning a glow party, your guests will still be able to enjoy those sticks until the following morning. But remember, how long these glow light sticks will glow also depends on the room temperature once they are activated. And these sticks can’t be ‘turned off’ once they are activated as the chemical process will continue until completion when the stick no longer glows.


What Do They Come With?

Depending on the type, size and length of the glow in the dark sticks, it is always best to check with the seller on what are the other items they may come with. Certain sellers may even throw in free lanyards so that these sticks can be worn around the neck or allow you to tie around your bag. If you are planning to purchase in bulk, you could contact the seller to check whether they are willing to waive the shipping fees for you. That will allow you to save some money. Also check to see if they will come in individually wrapped packages if you are planning to give them out as gifts for special occasions.


These are basically a short rundown on some of the important tips that one needs to know about glow light sticks before purchasing them. Once you have purchased the good quality ones, you will definitely have an enjoyable time with them.
