What is Backlit Film Printing?

Backlit Film Printing is commonly used to produce the images seen in light boxes in retail signage, menu boards or inside movie theaters for coming attractions.  An image is printed onto the backlit film material and then displayed in a light box using fluorescent lighting from behind the print.  This is why it is called “backlit” instead of “frontlit”. Backlit Film is also called a Promotional Duratrans or Endura Transparency.  The material is usually a thin film of polyester or some other plastic that is semi-transparent with a diffuser layer or clear.  SLB Printing uses an 8.7 mil polyester backlit film diffused with a layer of white and we print on our 6 color inkjet using latex inks.

Check out our YouTube Channel for more examples for backlit film. We know how tricky it can be to design a print ready file. When submitting your press ready file to our pre-press staff, full color pages should be in CMYK format. Images should be at least 300 dpi, and should have a minimum 1/8″ bleed (see videos).
