Backlit light box display utilizes mirrored images

Typical backlit light box displays are produced on polycarbonate or plexiglass rigid substrates. When the size of the display exceeds the available size of the plastic, it is not uncommon to produce these displays on translucent backlit flex-face material. The sign cabinet typically has to be set up for this type of printed face. Bloomingdale Signs by Tomorrow has the ability to print these displays up to 16 feet wide with their HP Scitex XL Jet 1500. The solvent inks when backlit tend to be washed out, so the company prints the same image on the backside mirrored so that when the media is lighted from behind, the image is more vibrant. The Scitex printer can align the printing on both sides within 1/8-inch accuracy. The material used in this display is from Stafford Textiles.
