Electrical Spotlight: Tips for a Day/Night Backlit

Electrical Spotlight: Tips for a Day/Night Backlit

In general, backlit images are meant to be viewed only when a light source is behind the image. Occasionally however, you may need to create a backlit image that can be viewed when face-lit with natural light in the daytime, and also at night when the image is illuminated from behind. The problem is that a print that looks good when backlit needs to have a heavy ink load. It needs to be dark and dense to compensate for strong backlighting. But that same print will look terrible in a front-lit application. Here are some tips to get around the problem.

A Print Finishing Primer

A Print Finishing Primer

In the digital graphics industry, a great deal of attention is paid to output devices. It isn’t difficult to understand why. Wide-format inkjet devices, whether fast or slow, flatbed or roll-to-roll, play an important role in the creation of graphic prints. But it’s important to remember that most prints must be finished in some way before they can be delivered to the customer as a sellable final product. One of the most common and perhaps underappreciated finishing steps is lamination.

Understanding Laminating Film

Understanding Laminating Film

Of all the questions and issues surrounding the lamination of large format digital graphics, film selection is perhaps one of the toughest. Selecting lamination films is sometimes a complex process.

Price alone is not a good basis for making film-buying decisions either. Unless you know from experience that it will work on your media, buying the lowest price film can be a losing proposition. The cost of reprinting and refinishing the pieces ruined by using the wrong film is much higher than the extra cost of buying the right film at the start.
