    Default UV Ink

    Does anyone know where I can purchase a UV ink pen. I want to be able to inscribe my name on some of my belongings (ie: computer, stereo, tv, etc..) Incase anything gets stolen, a UV light will aid in recovery of my belongings.

    Do some UV inks respond better to certain UV lights ? I'm planning on getting a UV LED keychain light from Led Centre.

    thanks,

    Try this link, scroll down about midpage and he has a fiber tip pen and a jumbo marker.

    I don't know how "indelible" or permanent the markers are, so I cannot vouch for these products first hand.

    Thanks Edwood.

    According to Madmax site, "This ink can only be seen when illuminated by a UV or Blacklight emitting in the 350nm - 385nm light range." The UV light I'm supposed to get is 395nm - 405nm. So I'm not sure if this ink will work.

    Telephony: do you know if this will work ?

    thanks,

    sylvestor.

    Sorry, I have no idea.
    I've never seen or used any kind of UV ink.
    It may or may not work.

    You may wish to explore this option as well:

    Invisible Inks, Inc

    Towards the bottom of the page there is a Glo-Pen, which contains invisible UV ink. Just as an FYI, I am just returning from Walt Disney World, and my Wilycon UV keychain does indeed illuminate the invisible ink that they stamped me and my family's hands with. I checked after a couple of washes, and that ink still can be faintly seen with the Wilycon.
    Edit: When they first stamped our hands, they lit up like a beacon under the Wilycon, which I believe uses the same LED that you mention.
