Premium Backlit Banner

For banners which will be lit from behind. Used externally or internally, backlit banners are used in flexface and and other types of tension-framed backlit boxes.

This backlit material is designed so that it diffuses light correctly. Used for illuminated advertisements which capture the attention of passers by in the day and at night. Normal banner material cannot be used as a backlit medium – prints will simply look washed out when lit.

Specialist Backlight Banner Printers

Backlit Banner requires a special printer and print setting to achieve the best possible results from your design. A higher density of ink is required than for normal frontlit banner.

Professional Specification Finishing

Different types of backlit frame will require different finishing specifications for your Backlit Banner. We have included the most common specifications in the ordering options, but please advise if yours differ.

Most frame systems simply require an excess of material all round. Some, however, require eyelets, sleeve pockets or keder strip. Please check the finishing specifications for your backlit frame. Check our Guide to Pole Pockets on Banners.

Artwork Guidelines

DOWNLOAD: artwork-guidelines.pdf

PDF, Jpeg, PSD, eps (CS 6 or earlier) Ai, (CS 6 or earlier)

We only accept files converted to CMYK.

We accept files at
Actual size or
1:2 scale (50% actual size)
1:5 scale (20% actual Size)
1:10 scale (10% actual size)
1:20 scale (5% actual size)

The ideal DPI is 125dpi if possible. At 125dpi this can make very large graphics huge in memory size, so on larger graphics i.e. 5m x 2.5m you can go down as low as 50dpi. As a rule the larger the graphic the greater the viewing distance hence the lower the dpi can be.

Small / medium sized graphics 125 PPI (DPI) Large sized graphics 50-100PPI (DPI)

Please make sure that all text is created to outlines / curves before uploading. Even on PDF files make sure you create outlines before saving.

No Thanks, No bleed is required on your artwork.

Please leave a clear area of 50mm to allow for eyelets. (Please ensure that all text / logos / critical information is more than 50mm from the edge of your artwork) Background colours and images are fine going into the clear areas.

When ordering make sure you select the finished overall size of your banner including the pockets. So if you select a 1m wide x 2m height, then we will manufacture the banner to a total the height of 2m including the pockets.
(clear areas on pole pockets)
Please make sure that you leave a clear area for your pockets. The term ‘clear area’ means no items of text or logos to run into these areas. Background colours or hackgrtoudn images are fine, just no readable text or logos. So if you are ordering a 1m wide x2m height banner with pole pockets top and bottom, then please keep the bottom 150mm free and the top 150mm free from text and logos. This will make the overall visual area 1m wide x 1.7m height.
Double sided banners
We have special software which flips certain parts of your banners so as to create a seamless pocket on the opposite side. When ordering a double sided banner please just follow the above steps, as the file(s) will need to be set up in the same way. If you require a different image on each side of your double sided banner not a problem, just upload x2 files stating that you require a different image on each side.

We can match pantones if required at an additional charge (please contact us before proceeding) as this is costed per job. We cannot guarantee an exact match on colours due to limitations of the CMYK print process but will try to achieve as close as physically possible.


Will you pre check my artwork?

As a safeguard we do check all files for size and print quality, but it is your responsibility to check that your files are correct before uploading.

Can you supply banners with Keder?

Yes. We can supply banners with Keder. As this is not our standard finishing you will need to email us for a quote.

Will you ship in plain wrap?

Certainly. You can be assured that no parcels from banner world will be branded. All items leave in plain packaging.

Will there be folds in my banner from transportation?

Banners under 2.5m will be sent on a roll so will have no creases. Banners that are larger than this will be folded. Please be aware that larger banners will have creases in the material which will fall out over time. If you require a larger banner which isn’t folded please contact us for a quotation as we can arrange a special shipping method at additional cost.

What type of eyelets do you use on your backlit banners?

We use nickel plated silver coloured eyelets with 12mm centre holes spaced evenly every 500mm approximately unless otherwise stated.
