"Paul, Just wanted to let you know we got our backlit poster back from your company and it looks fantastic. Turned out better than we expected. Plus your customer service was great. All companies need to learn something from yours!!!"

Feel free to browse through our FAQ. If you don't find the answer, we invite you to contact us via email or toll-free at the number posted on the top of this page.

What are Backlit Posters?

In comparison to a traditional double-sided poster, a backlit poster is a poster printed on a tranluscent polyester film coated with a formulated printing surface specifically designed for optimum performance in a light-box environment, which allows the backlit poster to "illuminate" when mounted in a light-box.

What is Backlit Poster Material?

We've recently upgraded our material! Our Backlit Media is a premium large-format printing material made of 10 mil (previously 8 mil) matte-coated polyester film perfect for Movie Theater Light-Boxes, Retail Light-boxe Displays, Trade Show Light-Boxes, Home Theaters, Restaurant Menuboards, Mall Kiosks, Promotional Posters and any other light-box application you may need.

What File Format and Resolution Should I Use?

When provided with files that are the proper file format and resolution, Backlit Posters can produce AMAZING prints that will exceed your expectations. While many file formats are acceptable (.jpg, .pdf, .tif, .eps, .ai), for the sake of simplicity and ease of providing your file, we highly recommend submitting your file to us as a Maximum Quality Jpeg or a PDF, in order of preference. When designing your Backlit Poster, it is important to design your file at the size you intend it to print at a resolution of 150-300 dpi. Submitting a file smaller than it's intended print size will require us to resize it which can decrease the quality of the final print. If you are not a graphic designer and are not sure what size or resolution you have, or are not able to correct a file, send it our way and we'll provide you with a free evaluation. Back to FAQ

What Color Modes Do You Accept?

Files should be created and submitted in CMYK. While RGB is fantastic for on-screen presentations, when it comes to print, many colors (especially bright primaries and florescent colors) will be out of gamut for printing. What this means is, the printer will automatically convert these colors to the closest "printable" color, which may result in an undesireable results in the final print. Bright blues will turn purple, bright pinks will turn a dull lavendar, etc. It is advised to design your files in CMYK to ensure that all colors will be within the printers capabilities. Back to FAQ

The short answer is no. Different displays show colors differently, depending on their calibration. And, while RGB colors may look one way on screen, they may not look the same in print. Our emailed or "soft" proofs are not intended to show color accuracy, but instead are an opportunity to 1) ensure that the right file is going to print; and 2) give the client a final opportunity to make spelling or graphic corrections to their artwork before going to print. Color matching is not a perfect science and is never guaranteed or implied. If you have concerns about any of the colors in your design, let us know when providing your file and we will be happy to help address those concerns. Back to FAQ

Do you offer custom sized Backlit Posters?

Absolutely! Custom size backlit posters are available at the following rates based on total square footage per poster.
  • $9 per square foot with a $20 minimum order price.
You can determine your total square footage by multiplying your height (in inches) x width (in inches) divided by 144. From there, you can determine your square foot cost by multiplying your square feet by $9. Minimum price of $20 for custom-sized requests.
