Backlit Banner

Backlit banners for stunning backlit displays

Our backlit banners are made from translucent vinyl that allows light to pass through, making them the best choice for beautiful backlit displays.

PVC backlit banners are designed for large-scale lightboxes, allowing light to penetrate the material from behind. This makes them suitable for illuminated billboards and other displays with fantastic colour reproduction.

Durable PVC means our backlit banner materials are suitable for outdoor installations without the risk of damage from wind and rain. There is no need to cover the backlit banner, although doing so will extend its lifespan.

Our backlit banner materials are compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, UV, and latex printing processes, available in roll widths up to 5m.

If you need to create enormous backlit billboards or smaller applications, you can’t go wrong with our range of backlit banner materials.

When specifying a backlit material for your customers or project, check for B1 certification – this means the material is flame resistant. All our backlit banners have B1 certification for complete peace of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are backlit banners?

Backlit banners are translucent banners designed for light boxes. When light hits the back of the banner, it transmits through it, illuminating the material for beautiful displays suitable for grabbing attention in crowded areas.

What are backlit banners made from?

The most common material for backlit banners is translucent PVC (polyvinyl chloride). The translucent PVC lets light pass through for a backlit effect. It is formulated with no pigments, ensuring light spreads evenly with no white spots.

What are the different types of backlit banners?

Backlit banners are categorised by weight. Our most popular product is Vistaflex BA510, a matte, 510g/m2 material with outstanding light transmittance. It’s available in 3.2m and 5m widths to suit the largest print requirements.

What are the applications of backlit banners?

Backlit banners are for use inside lightboxes for posters, billboards, signage, art, and other media intended to stand out, especially outdoors. The vinyl transmits and diffuses light, so it is a fantastic option in commercial environments.

How to install backlit banners?

Backlit banners are typically hemmed for installation with ties or clips, while some lightboxes utilise clamps or hidden clips for a seamless appearance. Make sure you tension the banner to sit tight and approx 50mm from the light source to allow for the best light diffusion.
