Use HP Durable Backlit Fabric to Create ‘Soft-Look’ Lightbox Displays

HP Durable Backlit Fabric is a new latex inkjet media that can help your print shop keep up with the latest trends in backlit displays. Not long ago, polyester backlit films were the primary method of producing inkjet graphics for lightboxes. Today, many lightboxes and frames are specifically designed for use with energy-efficient LED lighting and inkjet-printed fabrics. Printed fabrics weigh less than backlit films and can be shipped at lower costs.

Inkjet-printed backlit fabrics produce a soft, organic look that makes the backlit graphics suitable for a wider range of applications. In addition to being used for advertising graphics in stores, trade show booths, airports, malls, and conference centers, backlit fabric graphics can add a visually pleasing glow to indoor decor in restaurants, hotels, office lobbies, and other settings.

Many backlit inkjet fabrics are finished with silicon edging and displayed in SEG (silicon-edge-graphic) lightboxes with tensioning systems that keep the fabric taut and wrinkle-free.

Inkjet Fabric for HP Latex Printers

For latex-inkjet-printer users who want to print high-impact, backlit graphics on fabric, HP recently introduced HP Durable Backlit Fabric. This recyclable, 147 gsm, 6 mil polyester fabric was engineered with ColorPRO technology to provide enhanced image quality.

To reduce the risk that graphics will be accidentally damaged during finishing, shipping, and installation, the durability of the fabric has also been enhanced.

Graphics printed with HP Latex ink provide sharp, fine detail and are flame-resistant and REACH compliant. They are easy to install in SEG backlit frames and can be used as a recyclable alternative to PVC materials for banners and displays. The printed graphics are recyclable through the HP  Large-Format Media take-back program.
