Glow sticks or light sticks?

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

If you’ve visited Premier Glow’s website or have ever gone looking for some glow sticks or related products, you may have encountered some confusing terminology. Many places will use the terms “glow sticks” and “light sticks” interchangeably to refer to the same types of products. In reality, these terms are often used in place of one another, but there are some distinct differences that may be worth noting. Let’s break it down and take a look at what each of these two terms mean and how they are used today.

“Glow sticks” is a term that acts as a kind of blanket description for a wide range of products. It can refer to glow sticks, glow necklaces and bracelets, and so on. This particular terminology is generally used to denote products used at parties, celebrations, and other fun events. In fact, glow sticks were developed to be a cheaper alternative to the more robust light sticks due to the increasing demand for these novelty items at events and stores. So if you see the term “glow stick” in the same place as you see “light stick”, you can probably safely say that the glow sticks are novelty items.

“Light sticks”, on the other hand, were originally used to describe the products that use non-heat producing light (chemiluminescence) for use in emergency situations. These items are individually wrapped in foil and are generally stored in climate-controlled warehouses. They are designed to be sources of light during natural disasters, power outages, and other emergency situations. These were actually the first products to hit the market – as explained before, glow sticks grew out of a demand for more widely spread light sticks.

4 Reasons to Invest in Glow Sticks

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Premier Glow sells a wide range of useful and inexpensive glow sticks and related products. We specialize in providing customers with premium quality products of all styles and colors. They’re great for events of all kinds, and they’re good to keep around the house. Let’s take a look at four good reasons to invest in glow sticks and their related products in your life.

  1. Glow sticks are good to have around in case of an emergency. Natural elements of all kinds can leave you without power, and without power, you’re going to need a source of light. Fumbling around with candles and flashlights is one option, but they have limited use and require batteries, sources of fire, and so on. Glow sticks can be stored in strategic locations and can be cracked open at any time to provide a quick, inexpensive, and long-lasting source of light. Premier Glow’s sticks come individually wrapped in foil to ensure that their are intact until the customer wants to use them.
  2. Glow products are great for concerts. Glow necklaces and bracelets can be distributed quickly at indoor or outdoor events at night time to provide people with a simple way of identifying themselves and expressing enjoyment for the event.
  3. Kids love glow sticks and other light-up items. If you want a cheap and effective way to provide your children with entertainment, consider glow sticks, light-up toys, and more.
  4. Glow sticks and other glow products can turn daytime events into night time fun. Programs like Night Golf and other evening-time activities can benefit from the use of glowing and light-up items to create sources of light. Many types of sports and other activities would benefit from glow products.

Glow sticks for emergency situations

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Emergency situations of all kinds can take us by surprise. Natural disasters and other unforeseen circumstances can be a huge problem for people anywhere in the world, so it is important that we take steps to prepare ourselves for any unlikely event that may arise. Whether you live in an area that experiences frequent heavy weather, earthquakes, or other problems, or you live somewhere mild and unassuming, you should still have items at your disposal that will help you in a scenario where you might find yourself in danger. Premier Glow sells glow sticks and light sticks that can be used to light your way and make yourself identifiable in emergency situations of all kinds.

When the power goes out, you’re going to need a source of light. Unfortunately, there are a whole slew of instances in which you may lose power. It may happen in a simple thunderstorm, or it may happen during a hurricane. Tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, and any kind of accident could also trigger a power outage. When the power goes out, you don’t know for how long it will be gone – that’s why you should have light sticks handy to keep things bright even when there is no other source of light. Moving around in the dark is dangerous all on its own, so you and your family members should all know where lights sticks are in case of such an emergency.

Light sticks are also good for identifying yourself if you’re out in public or in a place with other people. This will ensure that nobody runs into you or causes you any harm. Use light sticks from Premier Glow for emergency situations and keep yourself safe!

The difference between glow sticks and light sticks

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Most everyone has heard of glow sticks and can easily identify what the terminology relates to, but there are  some other phrases going around that may confuse people. Similar products are also often referred to as “light sticks”, which raises the question: What is the difference between glow sticks and light sticks? A quick answer would be to say that they are essentially the same products, but that does not tell the whole story. In fact, the terminology differences stem from a difference in the markets in which they appear.

“Light sticks” traditionally refers to glow stick products used in emergency situations. They would be individually wrapped in tin foil that included instructions on proper use during emergencies. Light sticks are useful tools in a wide range of scenarios, including but not limited to: hurricanes, heavy storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, power outages, ice storms, and tsunamis. They provide a failproof source of light in times when power may not be near or operational. All of Premier Glow’s glow sticks sized at 4″, 6″, 12″, and 15″ are individual packaged and labeled as light sticks to be used in emergency situations.

The term “glow sticks” became more popular once developers realized that these products can be used as novelty items and toys. The widespread growth of these items at parties, events, and other fun occasions led to the new terminology. It’s a general term that may refer to a range of products, from glow sticks to caps and even glowing golf balls.
