  • What is a backlit poster?

    A backlit poster is a poster that is designed to be illuminated from behind inside an LED lightbox. The lighting inside the lightbox enhances the visual appeal of the poster and makes it stand out.

  • How are backlit posters illuminated?

    Backlit posters are illuminated using LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology. LED lights are energy-efficient and provide consistent and bright illumination day or night.

    Backlit prints are also known as Duratrans or Fujitrans. These can be photographs or images printed on semi-transparent material for displaying inside a lightbox frame.
