The Canon Back Print Backlit Film is intended for applications where a mirrored image is printed and viewed from the reverse side, thereby keeping the image surface protected and presenting a high-gloss surface to the viewer. This product is ideal for various types of illuminated signage and displays found at information kiosks and in retail environments.

A client needed to make several hundred B&W 5x7 translucent photo images which were going to be backlit by small lamps or candles behind 5x7 frames (without the backing). I needed a material I could run through a large format printer (needed to trim down to over 1000 prints) which would transmit light similar to vellum or tracing paper but print better. The tonal quality is amazing, the view surface is glossy, and the material is very light weight. I tried many different materials, but this had the best light transmission and photo quality. I wish it came on a thicker base as it is only about 4 mils thick. Very pleased overall. Printed with K3 inks. Also, this looks great either front lit, backlit or both!
