Light Boxes

GB Visual offer light boxes and lightbox graphics /duratrans/Backlits. We offer several options to customize backlit graphics and duratrans. All our duratrans are produced using state-of-the-art digital process to ensure customer satisfaction every time. We custom print these backlit posters with your own graphics and images!

Design a poster for your light box display and we’ll print it for you. When designing your artwork, please remember that many of our light boxes cover a portion of the print at the edges. Keep this in mind as it may cover a portion of your poster.

We can custom make your light box to achieve the best solution for your specific illuminated display requirements.

Backlight light box graphics, large format ink jet printing

Whether you need a single backlit poster for your restaurant or dozens to launch products, our backlit posters are real traffic stoppers.

The Light Box Process

  • GB Visual print using vibrant HP latex inks onto the reverse of a translucent polyester film ideal for backlit light box display graphics.
  • The backlit film’s ultra-white diffusing layer allows reverse print onto the matt side leaving a glossy finish.
  • After printing your backlit posters and duratrans can be sealed with a gloss laminate to protect them from scratching when loading into display units.

Ideal for advertisements, retail displays, POP and event graphics, use illuminated back lit light boxes. Large format outdoor back lit poster printing is ideal for quantities of 1 – 100’s.

Lightbox Case Study for Orvis Ltd


We recently produced various sizes of lightboxes for all the Orvis retail outlets throughout the UK, including London, Stockbridge, Harrogate and Bath for their upcoming Exhibitions. 

The client had visited our website and liked the Vector lightbox range. GB Visual arranged to send a sample box to their London store for testing the impact and vibrancy of the images when viewed from outside. They were impressed to the extent in ordering multiples for the London store and throughout the South East of England and the West Country.

Each store had Bespoke sizes suited to their windows and floor spaces. Some were freestanding and others wall mounted varying from 450mm square to the largest 2 metres high x 4 metres wide. 

GB Visuals advised on the setting up of the artwork. The London Orvis store, for example was double sided and the Bath Orvis store required single sided graphics. These were made of Fabric, but duratrans can be an option on some our Products (please ask for details). 

We arranged overnight delivery in kit form for the majority of the Light Boxes, but with several GB Visuals we sent designated drivers with the light boxes already built.

For the Andover Head office (Hampshire), GB Visuals constructed crates tailor made for carrying the built frames and graphic fabrics. We also designed and built plinths wrapped in Chalky Black vinyl on plywood.
