Using light to create an element of interest and visual excitement to display graphics, backlit signs are a visually captivating way to draw attention to a retail storefront and highlight a product or service.
Typically used for store directories, promotions, trade shows, and street advertising, backlit signs can provide your business an additional revenue stream. Backlit signs are usually illuminated with low-voltage LED lights within a light box or backlit frame. The display graphics are typically printed on a special media or fabric that allows light through thus increasing the overall visual interest.

Looking for something truly unique that stands out? The day/night backlit application can provide your customers with powerful brand or message awareness.
Traditionally, graphics designed for displays have been printed either for daytime or nighttime (backlit) viewing, but not both. Recent advances in large format color print technology have elevated the look regardless if the light is coming in from the front or behind. Did you know that this application can be printed on any suitable transparent substrate like polycarbonate or PETG?

Exterior Light Box
Exterior light boxes are commonly seen in transit shelters, as drive-through signs, and on building exteriors. They can be backlit only or produced as a day/night backlit to properly communicate their message regardless of the lighting conditions.
Due to the increased exposure to UV light with this printing application, fade resistance is a key requirement with printed graphics. The UVcurable inks used in the Océ Arizona® large format flatbed printer utilize automotive grade pigments making them very well suited for this application.
Retail backlit displays range from small poster size prints (which may advertise events or products) to large backlit displays that can add impact to a storefront. Traditionally, backlit displays have been printed on glossy films, but today’s backlits are printed on diverse materials like fabric, acrylic, and photo media.
Picking the right media depends on many factors such as expected life of the display, type of display case, and shipping requirements.
Stay competitive in the market by offering backlit POP displays as a service.

Textile backlits can be absolutely stunning with their strong saturated colors, deep rich blacks, and smooth skin tones.
The lightweight nature of fabric allows for a much lighter-weight framing system and fabric can also take advantage of convenient SEG (silicone edge graphics) framing systems which greatly help in reducing installation costs and time compared to conventional rigid backlit systems.
