Photochromics are color changing inks that activate when exposed to sunlight. This technology is great for creating theater-in-the-hand experiences for consumers. Sunlight-activated features are one way your brand can own the summer or outdoor-usage occasions. Photochromic inks are also great for creating content and stories for Millennials to share on social media.

REveal inks

Reveal technology hides the message when a product is warm or cold: it’s only after the chilled beverage is consumed that the message or code is revealed. CTI's reveal technology is one way for your brand to surprise and delight consumers. Call to learn more about these color changing inks for labels, cans, and cups!

Glow-in-the-dark

Glow-in-the-Dark (GID) Inks absorb light, enabling them to continue to glow when the lights are turned off. Using GID is a great way to ramp up your Halloween and other holiday promotions. Also, don't forget that kids love for things to Glow-in-the-Dark year-round.
