Dual-Color Signage Perforated Films

Our dual color perforated films allow for internally illuminated channel letters, signs and displays to be transformed at night.

Producing Black Daytime / White or Colored Night-time Channel Letters

Performance Black in 20% transparency is a black on black perforated film intended for the production of dual-color back-lit signage. The film is applied to the outside surface of the built-up channel letters and during the day, when it is not backlit, the sign appears black. When the sign is backlit at night, it takes on the color of the translucent sign face used.

We recommend this film to be used for medium-term, large-scale backlit external signage where close viewing is not required.

Please note that this semi-gloss film features our Universal Liner and can also be printed to produce see-through window or partition graphics.

This 20% transparency film gives greater night-time light output than other lower transparency products. This means signage will stand-out to passers-by due to its vibrancy.

Producing White or Colored Daytime / White or Colored Night-time Channel Letters

Alternatively by using Performance White on Black in 20% transparency, backlit signage can appear white or coloured in the day and white or differently coloured at night.

  • Apply unprinted Performance White on Black to translucent coloured acrylic for the sign to appear white in the day and coloured at night
  • Print Performance White on Black with the desired colour and apply to translucent white acrylic for the sign to appear coloured in the day and white at night
  • Print Performance White on Black with the desired colour and apply to (differently) coloured acrylic for the sign to change to a different colour at night

At night time, the internal lighting overwhelms the perforated film and changes the appearance to white or it takes on the color of the sign face used.
