Ultraviolet (UV) ink and lamps

UV ink

Our water-based UV inks are clear when stamped, but show up either blue or yellow under ultra-violet (UV) light. They are ideal for stamping on people's hands on entry to events, or on normal, absorbent paper.

Solvent-based UV ink is available for marking non-absorbent surfaces such as coated (shiny) paper, plastic or metal. This is ideal for security marking of PCs, laptops, mobile phoes or MP3 players.

All our UV inks can be used with our standard rubber stamps and dry stamp pads, or by special order with Trodat Printy stamps - for instance do-it-yourself alphabet stamps.

UV ink Price
Luminous I blue, 50ml water based, for paper or hands
1073P yellow, 50ml solvent based, for both absorbent and non-absorbent surfaces
1073P Red 50ml water based, for paper only
Luminous II blue, 50ml solvent based, for non-absorbent surfaces only (not human skin)

UV lamps

These hand-held ultraviolet fluorescent lanterns are ideal for viewing impressions stamped with our UV inks. They can be used for checking impressions made on people's hands at events, or items which have been security stamped. They can also be used to detect SmartWater™, or to verify credit cards.
