Backlit is produced using a backlit film and used for spectacular backlit signs. The light source shines from the back of the image and makes it sharper and easier to see in low lighting conditions. A number of options are available such as matt or satin finish while the film used will depend on whether the application is for indoor or outdoor displays.

Backlit are mostly used in department stores, shop front advertising, hair salons, airports and bus stop signage. Also called duratrans, they can be produced to a size up to 5m in width. They can be printed using dye inks (indoor use), UV inks (outdoor use) or solvent inks depending on the application. Backlit letters can be produced cutting the Perspex to design as opposed to printing the graphic on a backlit film.

Digital backlit printing is a printing method that produces prints directly from a computer file rather than a slide or a photograph, without going through some intermediate medium such as a film negative, a colour proof or a plate. The benefits of digital printing include faster turnaround times, lowered production costs, and the ability to personalise documents. Digital backlit banner printing is frequently used for on-demand or short-run colour printing. The printed information is encoded in discrete, digital dots at various resolutions thus providing versatility and enabling scanning into storage and manipulation of data. In short, digital printing is very cost-effective on short print runs, has the advantage of low set up costs, no minimum volume run and can be done on many substrates.
