We report time-resolved photoluminescence of two polythiophene derivatives with different chain packing. Emission of inter-chain aggregates is distinguished from that of intra-chain singlet excitons. The aggregate luminescence is shifted towards lower energies relative to that of intra-chain exciton by 0.17 eV, and the Huang-Rhys factor of the coupling to the intra-chain C=C vibration is S = 1.5. The excitonic coupling in aggregates is of intermediate strength.
