How do Backlit Posters Work?

Backlit posters are designed for use with a framed light box. They are printed on special semi-transparent media that is coated with a thin film that ensures that light in distributed evenly across your poster. The result is a stunning poster that glows. Backlit posters are usually printed in large format so that they can be clearly seen during the day or at night.

Why Choose a Backlit Poster?

In comparison with traditional printed posters, backlit posters have much more definition – even from a distance viewers will be able to see the fine details, colours and contrasts of your poster design. Because the poster is lit from behind and therefore glows it’s perfect for situations when you want your poster to be visible at night too. This style of poster is often used in cinemas but is also a great choice for spaces such as airports, shopping malls, storefronts and restaurants. Such is the exceptional quality of backlit posters, photographers often display backlit poster prints of their work in art galleries.
