FAQ's

Technical Information


 

Backlit Flex face Skins need to have a double layer of ink printed to the material to avoid the colours looking and becoming too washed out, when the flex face skin is illuminated from the rear.

Double-Density printing is the process, which allows us to create bright, colourful, illuminated, flex face panel signage. Double pass prints work superbly when the lights are on in the flex face illuminated box. 

However, when the lights are off (normally during daylight hours) the colours appear a lot darker than they should be (twice as dark). In the past, this colouring problem has caused prints and sign makers great difficulties, especially when they have a customer with stringent brand guidelines that must be followed.
