Day/Night Translights

A unique backdrop option where the day and night scenes are printed on the same side. Through different lighting settings, the “day” scene transforms into a night scene seamlessly.  Customized day/night translights (translites) are excellent for feature films and television productions for cityscapes, residential, or scenic landscapes. We produce custom backings based on your supplied production files and specifications.

  • 5.2oz Maiatex Polyester Fabric (fold storage)
    Maximum seamless size: 16’H x 290’W
  • 15oz Translucent Matte Flex Vinyl (roll storage)
    Maximum seamless size: 16’H x 150’W

Oversized backings will be produced with butt seams(s) tiled vertically or horizontally based on client preference.

Finishing: options include hemming and grommets and/or pipe pockets

Go eco with our signature Maiatex Fabric
Fabric backdrops are the eco-friendly alternative option to traditional vinyl backings. Our signature Maiatex Fabric, made of woven polyester, can be used for frontlit, backlit, and day/night translight formats.

Wallpaper

Unlike vinyl murals, wallpapers are a cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative.
