What’s so special about our ink?

At Horse Vis we recognised the need for casual clothing for horse riders but that still gave the rider the added visibility that a hi viz product would. After launching and seeing the success of our embroidered hoodies we decided to go a step further and print a more understated hoodie but that still gave the hi viz safety element when under light.

After researching the best inks and methods for printing we embarked upon our most success and high tec product to date. All of our printed hoodies are now printed using retro reflective ink, which is 100% reflective under any beam of light.

The ink used in the process are formulated to be free from any chemicals toxic to health, carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic according to Directive 67/548/EC, and formulated free from lead and other heavy metals and are tested to comply to the EN71-3: 1995 Toy Safety Standard.

We worked hard to ensure our products are of the very best quality and offer the highest visibility factors available on the market. The image below shows our hi viz hoodie both under normal lighting and under flash lighting.
