Duratran, also known as durable transparency, is a printable, semi-transparent plastic designed to be lit from behind to deliver highly saturated colors and a feeling of depth. You’ll likely recognize this material from its popular use in television as a background for news anchors or at bus stops showing off the latest summer blockbuster. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, this 7 mil thick material has excellent black density and a white pigmented coating to yield even light diffusion and a resistance to tearing – making it ideal for large displays with mounting systems that require hooks or grommets.

Our printers can print on a wide variety of textiles and fabrics with polyester, sheer and backlit materials being the most popular. In its basic flavor, polyester is a woven and texturized yarn fabric that produces extremely vibrant color and definition. Sheer fabric is also 100% rip-proof polyester and has a matte, flame retardant surface. Backlit fabrics are lightweight yet durable and are finished with a protective coating to increase versatility and ink retention for backlit displays.
