    Through the years I've printed my fair share of back-lit signage, just never back-lit banner. Now, we have a job requiring us to reprint an awning on back-lit banner. This is going inside an arena, over a pizza ordering counter, the banner is lit by fluorescent lights. Should I double-strike it? increase saturation? etc?
    I am printing on Ultralon® IV BL with an Epson s60600.

    I usually double strike it.

    In your rip settings there should be an option to edit the ink density factor - start off at 150% to see if that's the right setting.

    I would do the overprint twice. Really works good for back lit translucent vinyl anyhow.
