Custom Posters for my Light-box?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've put together a couple of parody type movie posters using my own photos that I'd like to get printed for use in my light-box. Here's my problem. I've searched long and hard for somewhere that prints single prints of DS (double-sided) posters and have come up empty. Can anyone enlighten me?

The only thing that I found that comes remotely close to what I'm looking for is a backlitposters.com site, but they print on a "film" that's supposed to be made specifically for light-boxes. Duratran print? Not double sided, but is supposed to perform the same as DS. Does anyone have any experience with ordering through them? And, if so, how did the final piece look in your light-box? bad, average, great? Thanks in advance.

I don't have any experience with this company but I can tell you that Duratrans is a great material on which to print material that is to be back-lit. The results are better than DS printing in my opinion. Good luck.

Thanks for the info, guys. After calling and speaking with one of the associates, I actually did eventually get the posters printed from backlitposters.com, and KenLerch, you were right... this duratran stuff is AMAZING! I couldn't be happier with the final print. It looks great in the lightbox. Cheers!
