Backlit Film Printing The Eco-friendly Way 

One of the main points to understand is the 'visual temperature of a material. The 'visual temperature' can fall anywhere on the spectrum between cool and warm and is determined by the amount of blue (cool) or red (warm) undertone the material has. This is also often referred to as the "white point". 'White point' specifically indicates the level of blue within the film. The more blue, the cooler the white and the "whiter" it looks. The higher the level of red within the film, the warmer and more yellow the film will appear.

When determining the visual temperature, you can look at the color index of a material to see where on the spectrum the media falls. The color index is simply a numerical expression that determines the color of an object. As a printer, you will see this in the graphic files when selecting or adjusting a color. You will see it depicted in a L, a, b format.

In figure 1.1, the color index differences between "cool white" and "warm white" are difficult to see in a digital format such as a web article, therefore, we have used the blue in circled area of the Tekra logo as an example. With the lightness value being 49, we can tell that this is a pretty centered color depth between light and dark. We can also tell that the material is more green than it is red, as the 'a' value is 12 points below zero and the color is considerably more blue in hue than it is yellow being 46 points below zero in the 'b' value. Understanding how to read this report will help you better estimate the tone of white a material will project when backlit.

When selecting a inkjet printing reverse backlit film for your wide format inkjet backlit application, you will primarily be concerned with the amount of red and blue. For a whiter appearance, you will want the 'b' value to have lower negative value and for a warmer appearance, you will be looking for the yellow to have a higher positive value.

Backlit signs for businesses are large format color graphics illuminated from behind by a light source (mostly by LED lights today).

Backlit sign graphics have many indoor applications such as in malls, tradeshows, kiosks, and airport displays. However, how these illuminated signs are made allows them to also have many outdoor applications as well. They can be utilized for outdoor building signage, bus stops, and even billboards.

With today’s modern technology, printing backlit signs on many different types of substrates is now possible. Backlit sign printing is also more affordable now and the end products are much more durable, so the demand for custom backlit signs has grown rapidly.

LED lighting is also a major compoent of how backlit signs are made. With LED, today’s backlit signs stand out considerably better than when fluorescent signage was first introduced. This makes backlit signage an easy choice for business owners who want to raise the level of awareness for their companies.

Using interior and exterior backlit signs can improve the credibility of your business by showing your customers that you are serious about promoting your business and are willing to make the investment necessary to ensure your continued success.

Large backlit signs are vivid and durable when printed on translucent reverse print backlit film for light box using high-resolution latex ink printing, whcih is specifically designed for backlit sign applications. This method of printing produces very bright signage. They are full of depth and have more detail and clarity than other printing methods or ink choices.

Another important component of how backlit signs are made is Silicone Edge Graphics. Depending on the application, Silicone Edge Graphics can be stretched around a borderless frame once printed. This enhances the appearance of the graphic, suggesting that the graphic is floating without the constraints of a border.

Although there are various options available for the production of signs and digital graphics, one particular area worth taking another look at is backlit products and applications. This is due in large part to the recent advancements that have been made in digital printing and media technologies, which have made it easier to produce high quality, cost-effective backlit graphics. Another major reason to refocus on backlit displays is the large market opportunity that POS graphics brings with it.

To meet the wide array of environments, there are a number of semi opaque media solutions ranging in the $1.00 per square foot price range for use with aqueous dye/pigmented printers and inks. Some reverse print films enable print providers to print on the matte side in order to protect the image on the gloss side, making them ideal for high quality, promotional indoor backlit signage, backlit trade show display and backlit retail displays. Such films feature high color gamut on the viewing side, optimized opacity for maximum color with hot spots and enable the image to look great with the lights on or off. When looking for this type of film, choose a polyester film base for uniform, low-grain background.
