    What point styrene or lexan would I print on to frame on top of a backlit panel/light box? I want it to have a similar look to duratran.

    The white diffuser is 1/16" thick. Indoor sign, full color, 24x30" box. The film would just lay on the light box with 1/2" wide snap frame holding the film in.

    Sorry about lack of info/knowledge on the subject, this is a new product we are playing around with. We don't even make it, and I can't seem to get many specs on the panel minus what i can gather by looking at it.

    well, if indoors, at least you don't have to worry about it blowing out in traffic.. so if the 1/16 is enough to diffuse whatever illumination source is in there, then why not just use a duratrans?

    One of the printers we might use to print some of the art/film doesn't carry duratran, so I wanted to figure out a comparable substitute. They mentioned lexan and styrene, but caught me off guard when they asked what point i wanted.

    I'm brand new to backlit screens, my company does digital signage, so I'm a little clueless.
