Black Back Fabric

Black back fabric for ultimate opacity.

One of the most widely used printable fabrics, our black back fabric is perfect for creating frontlit, opaque, super-sharp displays and graphics that will prevent light from behind the graphic showing through.

Black back textiles are made from polyester, which is 100% recyclable. Our fabrics are suitable for dye-sublimation and UV-C printers, ensuring compatibility with all hardware.

They support full-colour printing on one side with a solid black reverse to prevent light show-through. The result is an opaque fabric suitable for the stage.

Available in wide 3.2m and 5m widths, our black back fabrics are the best solution for large format applications like presentation backdrops, stage graphics, wall coverings, and displays in large spaces.

Another use case is stretching the fabric in a frame to create large, printed back walls, dividing spaces without significant building work. This is particularly useful in retail and promotional environments like exhibitions.
