UV LED Light for Cyanotype Printing Application
I have read several of your helpful articles but still have no idea which would be the best light for working with cyanotypes. (Cyanotypes are a type of cameraless photography where you contact print images and expose them either under the Sun or a UV light) I assume people have purchased these lights for this purpose before. Can you let me know if both NM types work or if one is superior for this particular use?
While we have not done any internal tests or gathered any data to verify, we have indeed have numerous customers reach out regarding this application.
We believe that the 365 nm wavelength works best for cyanotype printing applications. The 365 nm UV LED flood light is certainly a popular option. Please see below for the product link:
We would perhaps recommend testing and taking advantage of our free returns policy. If for whatever reason you find that the LED bulbs are not going to work for your project, we would be more than happy to pay for return shipping and offer a full refund.
