What's the Difference?

What are DuraTrans?

There are two distinctly different uses for the term "DuraTrans".

Definition 1 - Duratrans is a brand of transparency film offered by Eastman Kodak that is designed to be displayed in backlit applications such as light boxes for expos, franchise menus, theatre kiosks and more. The Eastman Kodak Duratrans brand of film have a light-sensitive emulsion on its surface, which requires them to be developed with a similar chemical process as developing film. This process, however, comes at a cost.

Definition 2 - The term "DuraTrans" stands for "Durable Transparencies" and has become the "cover-all" term used by designers and media professionals looking for printed media that is designed to be displayed in a light box or other form of backlit application. The correlation to the Durarans brand is usually null and void. At, we use the term "DuraTrans" to describe the general term that is described in this definition.

How is a DuraTrans Produced?

Backlit Posters' DuraTrans utilizes state-of-the-art large format inkjet printers to produce stunning backlit media that easily rival the quality of the Eastman Kodaks brand of DuraTrans at a fraction of the price. Our backlit prints are produced at 1440 dpi for photographic quality images that display flawlessly in their backlit applications. The thickness (7 mil), tear-resistance and transparency of both media perform equally, with the greatest difference being cost. Our backlit posters are also coated with an optically clear 3-mil matte PVC laminate that makes your posters water and scratch-resistant while increasing their lifespan and usability.

What's the Difference?

Optically, there isn't much of a difference at all, unless you view the prints under a loop. For all intents and purposes, the two DuraTrans options (printed and developed) both produce stunning results that perform equally well in backlit applications. The only major diffenence is going to be seen in the production process and price point. Our DuraTrans option is the most economical option you'll find online GUARANTEED!
