Frequently Asked Questions
How bright are they?
After charging, our prints are super bright for the first few mins and then luminosity gradually diminishes over several hours.
In our product testing over several years, we found our products boasted the strongest lasting glow over the more commonly used photoluminescent graphic display media.
We found our prints were almost 3 times brighter, at 1 hr, as compared with other similar products!
Naturally, this makes a huge difference to the overall effects.
How long do they need to fully charge?
This depends on the strength of the light source used, but generally it takes only about 5 minutes of light exposure to activate the glow effects.
Generally speaking, the more light exposure the brighter the glow effects observed.
Do I need to plug into a powerpoint?
No. The prints are photo-luminescent which means they are passively charged by ambient or an external light source.
The display is non electric and so has no leads or cords to connect.
See notes above regarding lighting and ways to enhance the glow effects.
What makes them so special?
We have searched far and wide to make our glow prints SUPER BRIGHT with a long lasting glow!
Where other glow-in-the-dark products tend to produce a generalised, greenish homogenous luminescence, we exploit advanced state-of-the-art, patented production methods to produce super bright, high-contrast, multicoloured glow effects!
Turn off the lights, and our glow is vivid and dramatic!

How accurate is my moon print?
We use software to identify the MOON PHASE on your nominated date. The precise stage of the synodic 29.5 day month is identified and correlated with the MOON PHASE representations published by NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio.
We use the formula to identify & print the corresponding representation for your special day. The axis of the MOON PHASE is adjusted to reflect a viewer's perspective from either the Northern or Southern Hemisphere.
NOTE: This project is not endorsed by or affiliated with NASA, ESA, or any other space agency.
How accurate is my sky mural?
Sky Mural commissions are an artist's impression of the night sky at a particular location & time. The skyscapes incorporate moon phase representations published by NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio. Constellation imagery is generated by Stellarium software which incorporates actual star data published by the European Space Agency (Hipparcos & Tyco Star Catalogues) - https://stellarium.org
Our Sky Mural templates feature pre selected horizon line silhouettes (in a 360 degree circular plan view) that work exceptionally well to display the stars on your special night. You can create these in minutes using online creator tool.
The stars are extracted from published star data. You can confirm the accuracy of your design by looking up your chosen date on open source planetarium software Stellarium.
How accurate is my star chart?
As with our Sky Mural templates, our star charts incorporate actual published star data. You can confirm the accuracy of your design by looking up your chosen date on open source planetarium software Stellarium.

Accordingly, we do not offer any warranty or guarantee our products or services except as extended under applicable Australian consumer law.
There are some lines on the print when I look close up, is this normal?
Yes. The advanced print method used to produce the works may create slight lines/banding that can be observed at close range. The industry-standard correct viewing distance is the diagonal measurement of the finished display, multiplied by a factor of two. If there are no visible issues from this distance then the product is acceptable.
