Backlit Polyester

Fire rated backlit textile for lightboxes

Material Overview

  • 310gsm Textile
  • Dye-sublimation printed for vibrant colours and images
  • Excellent light transmission
  • Flame retardant treatment
  • Standard finishing included at no extra charge
  • Approx maximum finished graphic width: 3000mm (depending on chosen finish)
  • Roll width: 3200mm

Each item is printed and finished to your requirements.

Fabrics are printed via a process of dye-sublimation which uses special inks and undergoes a post-print heating process to 'fix' the ink into the fabric. This makes it both scuff-resistant and washable.

Uses for Backlit Polyester

  • Backlit lightboxes and exhibition graphics
  • SEG (Silicone Edge Graphics)


For any Backlit Polyester items, 30mm bleed must be supplied. This allows for any extra material required for hems, as well as shrinkage and movement when printing and cutting.


Backlit Polyester items are supplied on a roll. Please be aware that Backlit Polyester graphics can crease and bruise if handled without care.

Our thread colours are black or white. Our sewers will choose the most appropriate colour to complement your graphic.

Currently we can only print up to 3 metres (10ft 6in) on the shortest edge, to our standard pricing. Items above this size will require a bespoke quotation.

    Pole Pocket(s)

    A pocket is added to the edges you require to allow a pole to pass through and support/tension the banner.

    The diameter of the pocket can be specified by you, however, if you let us know the diameter of the object to go into the pole pocket we can calculate the size of the pocket for you.
