Backlit Film Sign

What are backlit film signs?

You’re driving at night and you see a brightly lit sign advertising a business, you’ve seen backlit film in action. Backlit film is a plastic film used to create signs that can be easily seen in low-light conditions. The film has a special coating that helps to diffract light. This coating causes the light to scatter in all directions, making the sign visible from far away. Backlit film is often used for exterior signs, but it can also be used for interior signage, such as in illuminated displays. While backlit film is typically clear, it can also be printed with graphics or text. Thanks to its durability and high visibility, backlit film is an ideal solution for a wide range of signage needs.

Get noticed with Backlit Film Signs

Backlit Film Sign Printing​​ is a popular marketing resource that makes the colors pop and shine bright. Through a special printing technique​ that results in high-quality translucent finishes. Artificial light as well as sunlight will no longer pose a threat of poor reflection, but rather provoke a boost to the intensity and shocking value of your displayed design.

Bring awareness to your promotions and daily deals

Whether you own a chain of retail outlets or a single store, you’ll want to attract attention to the special discounts and daily/weekly deals you have to offer. Whenever a customer enters your front door, you’ll want to let them know what’s hot today and which products have lowered prices.

Backlit film signs are also great for a movie premiere, special promotions, emphasizing your new brand or logo, or simply using a new creative way to make your business shine. These prints are one of the most unique tools on the market!

With our Backlit Film sign printing process, you’ll be able to highlight all the best deals with your own awesome, creative design without having to worry about awkward light reflection issues or poor visibility. Each color you choose to include in your unique creations will shine even brighter when under sunlight or artificial lights. That’s the special feature of Backlit Film and why almost every retail store chooses it: it works like a charm.

Many other products struggle to display every bit of information they carry, especially when talking about double-sided assets. Backlit Film printing specializes in a nifty translucent finish that brings awareness to both sides and grants attention to every single one of your special offers and deals.

Put these to the test by displaying them at the entrance of your store and you’ll see customers being drawn in, paying special attention to the information. Your chosen colors will pop and result in that WOW effect you’re looking for.

Our Backlit Films also feature water-resistant coating qualities and we also recommend them for airport signs, movie theater boxes, menu displays, bus stops, backlit exhibits, and window presentations.
