    I would think a screenprinter would have the ability, Don't know of a machine that can print UV Fluorescent. Good Luck!!

    I've done it before, but I've printed UV+white on fluorescent vinyl. I don't think you can do the other way around. But I can be wrong.

    I did find a couple of printers so far who seem to do this on a regular basis. California and Toronto located. This is not a referral or endorsement as there are most likely other printers I'm not aware of. Just thought I'd post this for future searchers.

    There are some new printers available that have fluorescent inks. I’ve looked into it. The demand, so far, hasn’t justified spending $10,000+ to upgrade my shop’s capability.

    There's a guy ( Orange Fat Kat Media is the business name ) that does fluorescent print vinyl for race cars (not an overlay) that appears to be one of the only few that can. Just started offering it a few months ago.
