How do they look in the light? more specifically: is is super obvious that there is glow in the dark on the shirt when it's not dark? I've seen plenty of glow in the dark designs that looks like they had yellowish gel on them, and they just looked bad in the light. How do woot's glow in the dark shirts look in the light?
This depends on the design and the production quality at shirt.woot's print facility on a given day. My t-shirts and Narfcake's t-shirts mostly look fine in the daylight; I thought they were totally fine until I saw TeeTurtle's glow-in-the-dark and realized that it was possible to do it better than woot does, but I still think woot's stuff is fine. I have one glow-in-the-dark woot pullover hoodie and the ink is definitely visible during the day, but in general, the ink on the hoodies is much thicker than it is on the t-shirts.

In my limited experience with woot's glow-in-the-dark prints, they hold up just fine. I tend to wash woot stuff inside-out, gentle cycle, hang to dry and with the exception of two shirts, it's all survived quite well.
(I think it could survive "harsher" washing, but when I take shirts off, they end up inside-out, and I wash a decent percent of my clothes gentle cycle-hang dry because they survive longer and in better condition, so it was easy to allocate woot stuff to that pile.)
