There are several light vendors, including your local hardware store, who may be able to assist you in obtaining black light bulbs and purple string lights. Listed are a few vendors that are great to work with Purple Light Nights® orders. We hope you find this useful as you organize your event.
We use standard bulbs that are either 60 watts or 75 watts (do NOT get less wattage). To clear up any confusion, there are no ‘purple’ light bulbs. What we use are black light bulbs that glow purple.
Under new federal regulations, all white incandescent bulbs under 40 watts are no longer manufactured. However, the exception to that rule is any colored bulb, such as the black-light, which are exempt from the ruling.

We ordered weather-resistant, corrugated plastic yard signs to use for our street tree recognition signs and promoting Purple Light Nights®. Since the signs included our logo along with “STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,” it was a great visual to promote the campaign. Many residents purchased the signs to post in their yard along with the purple light!
For our recognition signs under the street trees, we added the business's name along with either the name of a victim or facts about domestic violence on the backside. We have a template for this recognition sign under the Get Involved section. Additionally, we printed the business name and/or domestic violence facts on 11x17" paper, laminated them, and used wide-clear tape to put them on the back of the yard signs. They weathered very well.
