Weather conditions update

Many parts of the UK have been affected by snow and ice over the last few days. Down in Poole, Dorset where we’re based, we very rarely see snow, however we are also currently in the grips of ‘the beast from the east’!

Our team are doing their best to ensure orders carry on being dispatched as normal, however many roads are currently un-passable. The local trunk road, the A31, was also subject to military support on the night of Thursday 1st March causing delays to deliveries.

All orders placed on Thursday 1st March and Friday 2nd March will be subject to a 1-2 working day delivery delay as whilst we have been able to get orders to the depots both DPD and Royal Mail’s lorries have been stuck in the yards meaning nothing has been moving forward. We expect to be dispatching all orders on Monday 5th March as normal.

Depending on conditions in your local area there could still be onward delays however conditions appear to be improving across most of the UK.

Freshers’ Week 2017 Glow Essentials

Freshers’ Week is a perfect introduction to life on campus at your new university. It is during this week that you are likely to meet the friends that will stick by you during the next three (or more) years, as well as your new flatmates for first year – and possibly beyond. Here, we list all of your Freshers’ Week Glow essentials, because we all know just how wild things can get.

Preparing yourself for Freshers’ Week

If you’re big on the party scene then you have some serious preparation to do if you want to be ready for the parties that Freshers’ Week has to offer. From late night raves to never ending pre-drinks, you’re going to experience it all.
This week is all about settling in and starting your time at university with a bang – and that bang is sure to include at least one UV party. In order to survive this week and the hard partying that comes with it, you are going to need at least one pair of sunglasses (for the inevitable hangover – here at Glowtopia we’re a fan of the classic Wayfarer Sunglasses), paracetamol and caffeine to get you through the next day. Oh, and lots of glow for the nights out!

The Essential Freshers’ Week Glow Products You Need

Club nights and raves are all about the experience, and glowing objects can help make it a night you will never forget. From the classic to the quirky, we have everything you could possibly need, and you can find it all here at Glowtopia.

#1 Classic Glow Sticks

Our 6″ 15mm Premium Glow Sticks, these are the number one glow item you are likely to find anywhere, and they look fantastic. You can get them in a range of colours and in multipacks to share with your friends. Light up the club when your favourite tunes come on, or use them to paint the town neon when you go out for drinks before or after.

#2 UV Body Paint

UV paint is an absolute must for any student that is celebrating Freshers’ Week. Get in touch with your creative side, and turn your face into a masterpiece. Once you hit the UV party, your face (and even body if you’ve painted that) will glow intensely – making you the centre of attention. Go wild and turn yourself into something spectacular.

#3 Glow Hats and Glasses

What better way to liven up the party with glow hats and glow glasses? Ideal for a night spent raving at your local (or campus) club, as well as those spent in your flat drinking and having a good time with new friends, these nifty accessories are a perfect little extra!

#4 UV Fabric Paint

Almost every single University Freshers’ Week will involve a white t-shirt party, and what better way to stand out at these events than with UV fabric paint? Simply apply to a white t-shirt and once under UV light it will light up producing amazing effects!

Make a glowing impression this Freshers’ Week with our Freshers’ Week Glow Pack

Freshers’ Week is going to be amazing, and you are going to have the time of your life. Check out our Freshers’ Glow Pack for our favourite Freshers’ Glow Essentials. Whether you are partying from the comfort of halls, or heading out into the city for a taste of the nightlife, glow products are going to be there with you to bring that little extra something. Party hard and prepare yourself for your university adventure.

Glow Wild For Wholesale Glow Sticks This Summer

wholesale glow sticks in lots of colours

Woohoo! Summer is here and that can only mean one thing, wholesale glow sticks! Wait, what? We’re sure your first thought wasn’t to buy wholesale glowsticks, in fact, you’re probably already ripping mint for the mojitos and rinsing the barbeque down. Well let us just stop you right there, because you’re missing a stick, excuse us, trick, well actually, you’re missing out on both!

As we mournfully nibble the last of our Easter eggs, we look forward to a bright and glorious, scorching hot summer (we never said we weren’t dreamers). A summer which even with rain, and wind, and muddy grass will be filled with a ton of outdoor activities, festivals and camping galore.

Buying Wholesale Glow Sticks Applies To You

If you’re in the business of:

  • Running a festival
  • Running outdoor summer events
  • Running childrens summer camps
  • Running summer fitness camps
  • Running summer charity runs
  • Running garden party events
  • Running camping shops
  • Running camping grounds

Or you are pretty much running or organising anything where lights could be useful, fun or necessary in the dark, then it is time for you to think about bulk buying glow sticks from Glowtopia.

Getting The Best Price To Make The Most Profit

Soon enough glow sticks are going to be in high demand, it happens every summer and we want you to make the most of our cheaper than cheap wholesale prices, so you can make the most money when you’re selling out of glow sticks left right and centre this summer. We aren’t selective about our discounts either, no tricks or cheats here, we offer wholesale discounts on ALL our products. So whether you buy ten pairs of glow stick glasses, or 1000 LED flashing bunny rabbit ears, you can feel assured you are getting the absolute best price on your bulk buy glow sticks.

Meeting Your Needs All Day Every Day

You’re going to be selling out of glow sticks, no need to worry about that. No need to worry about stocking back up either though as we stock huge quantities of products so that we can offer next day delivery to you. We would never want to see a world where somebody wanted a bit of light in their life and they couldn’t get it!

Making It Your Own

Don’t worry about branding and packaging being specific to our brand, most of the products we buy are generic and unbranded in their packaging making them ideal for resale and totally ready for you to make them your own.

Glowtopia Are Ready To Supply You With Wholesale Glow Sticks This Summer

Whatever the event you are running this summer, we’re ready to help you bring a lot of light to it with our awesome, super affordable wholesale glow sticks. We’re excited to help you and your customers absolutely glow for it this summer!
