"As a child in Switzerland, my father told my brother François and I the story of his friend who had invented Velcro. From my youth, I had always wanted to create a similar type of broadly applicable and useful product. With the current version of Brightec, I think that we have done it. The Brightec team is proud to have created the first photographic quality Glow-in-the-Dark Media in the world. It's simply the whitest and the brightest Glow-in-the-Dark media, available in rolls and in sheets for a variety of client needs. We look forward to working with you to help you better understand how to take full advantage of this amazing media. Be Brilliant."

Brightec, Inc. has created and patented a high graphic quality printable glow-in-the-dark film (“GITD Film”, “Brightec Film”) by incorporating luminescent or phosphorescent pigments into a core with one of several print receptor on the top side and one of several backings on the back side. The luminescent pigments absorb and reemit visible light producing a “glow” which accounts for the common terminology “glow-in-the-dark” (“GITD”). In a variation under development, we use a printable fabric as the print receptor thereby creating a proprietary GITD fabric material (“GITD Fabric”, “Brightec Fabric”) that can then be made into GITD appliqués or patches (“GITD Patch”, “Brightec Patch”). As a result of our patented construction, everything that is printed on Brightec Film or Brightec Fabric looks like high-quality, or even photographic quality print by day and, then, glows in full detail at night.
We produce Brightec Film in large master rolls, which are then processed into smaller rolls or sheets sized for printing and converting. For the commercial printing industry, we offer several different print receptive versions of our GITD Film (like Offset and Flexo) that are suitable for use with specific printing technologies and several different backing (like paper, pressure sensitive adhesive and more) for specific end uses. These versions are offered as sheets and rolls that are scaled for the various commercial printing and converting processes. For the wide format and print-on-demand industry, we offer several different print receptive versions of our GITD Film (like UV, Water-Based Inkjet, Solvent Inkjet and Laser) that are suitable for use with specific printing technologies and several different backing (like paper, pressure sensitive adhesive and more) for specific end uses. These versions are offered as sheets and wide format rolls that are scaled for the various wide format and print-on-demand industry and converting processes. For the home and office printing market, for several years, we have been offering for sale, through our online store, an inkjet printable version of our GITD Film in sheets suitable for printing on home and office desktop printers.
Brightec Films are sold to third parties to enhance their existing products and to create new products by adding Brightec’s unique and patented high graphic quality GITD. Brightec Films are also being used by the Company to produce it’s own branded GITD products (“GITD Products”, “Brightec Consumer Products”, “Consumer Products”) for the consumer market. At the end of 2008, we have decided to create and offer our own GITD Products and expect this to be one of the principal business activities for the Company going forward. During 2009, we have started by creating and marketing jigsaw puzzles and stickers as finished products for children. These consumer products are being sold under the brand name PlayGlo™. From this beginning the Company expects to be offering a number of new consumer products under new brand names. In order to create a strong brand presence, Brightec will use its “Powered by Brightec, Wow!” logo on all its products packaging and also use slogans such as “Glow-in-the-dark like you’ve never seen it before”. Brightec goal is to create a quality, and brand recognition for its unique GITD products, to become the reference in high quality GITD applications and products. During 2009, we have been developing Brightec Fabric, a variation of our Brightec Film construction. This GITD Fabric can be printed and further processed using conventional patch-making technology into a GITD Patch which can then be attached to a variety of apparel like caps, shirts and jackets; bags or other items to create many different GITD Patch products (“Patch Products”, “Brightec Patch Products”). We will be developing and offering proprietary Patch Products for business customers as well as consumers. Initially, these Brightec Patch Products will be primarily targeted to the Advertising and Promotional Industry.
We launched our new website in September 2007 and we began to introduce our GITD Films shortly thereafter. We rely on this website to communicate product and other information concerning our company and our products. During 2010 we expect to begin a substantial revision to the website to allow it to better present information about our new product offerings for consumer and business customers and also to be a more effective web-commerce tool.
