  • What are backlit posters?

    Backlit posters are also known as Duratrans and compared to traditional paper posters they are printed on a transparent film.  This specially coated media has a formulated print surface and used for displaying inside an LED light box. The LED lighting inside the frame illuminates the graphics to create a stunning display.

  • What is the difference between paper and backlit posters?

    The semi-transparent backlit media has special light passing properties that standard paper posters do not. Graphics printed on backlit media will have much more definition and finer details and colours can be viewed from afar.
