Learn More About Printing Backlit Film Poster Prints for Light Boxes
Backlit film is the print medium for lightboxes or any application that entails shining light from behind. Backlit posters are weatherproof, scratch-resistant, and withstand UV sunlight. A backlit film is a durable option for indoor or outdoor lightbox graphics in lobbies, theaters, stores, event venues, and transit stations.
Although, we have many customers that use our photo gloss large posters for lightboxes, a long term, and brighter solution consists of prints on backlit film. Composed of a 9mil semi-rigid material and glossy topcoat, backlit signs or posters allow customers to showcase fabulous imagery and messaging. Your signage lights up and stands out with vivid backlit graphics and superior light diffusion for home or commercial use.
We do not sell lightboxes.
About the Film
Our 9 mil, 275-gram polyester backlit film media is known for durability and incredible image quality, and color saturation. The film coating resists flaking when cut and is scratch resistant. This media is highly flexible and ideal for indoor or outdoor displays in high-traffic areas.

Digital Proofs For Backlit Posters
If a digital PDF proof is vital, please let us know in the "Messages / Deadlines" area, and we can usually send one within 6 - 8 business hours ($5 per artwork). Typically, proofing is not necessary for wide-format printing.
Digital proofs will alter turnaround by adding one extra day. Turnaround begins once you approve artwork for production.
Unlike our large poster printing, we use solvent ink for printing on backlit film. Files must be CMYK and at least 200 dpi (300 is better). Please add a one-inch trim area to your file.
Custom Backlit Posters are Beautiful
We implement a unique technique for backlit film printing that results in ultra-quality and translucent finishes with bright colors under artificial or natural light. Promote your movie premier, specials and sales, or brand name attractively.
Printing Backlit Posters FAQ
What are backlit posters?
We make Backlit Posters using a 9mil semi-rigid transparent material that allow light through for superior light diffusion. These prints work well for placement inside lightboxes found at theaters and outdoor signage spots.
How should I make my backlit poster file?
There are just a couple of things to remember for setting up your artwork. Make sure you create your design at a resolution of 200 dpi or higher at full scale. Be sure to add 0.25" bleed on all sides of your artwork for a 0.5" total.
Does the backlit poster come with hardware?
No, we do not sell hardware for backlit posters at this time.
Can I place backlit posters outside?
Place your backlit posters in lightboxes that provide UV protectant sheets such as styrene or acrylic.
Why is my backlit poster printed dark?
We intentionally print backlit posters dark, so true colors show once placed inside a lightbox.
Other Poster Products You Might Be Down With Printing.

- Another alternative to backlit film and large posters include watercolor or canvas printing. We don't intend these options for lightboxes, but they are striking for home or office decor.
