Translight Fabric

Translight Fabric features a double-sided print with the same motif on both the front and the back. We replicate the motif on each side to maintain vibrant colors and prevent glare. This technique gives the backdrop a rich depth when backlit, allowing for various moods to be crafted simply by adjusting the lighting.

With Translight Day-to-Night, you can swiftly transition a stage from day to night in just seconds. This product enables the creation of realistic transitions throughout the day with simple lighting adjustments. It's double-sided: a daylight image is printed on the front, paired with a corresponding nighttime image on the back.

Translight Magic

Double the experience with Translight Magic. Crafted on cotton fabric, each side showcases a unique image. When lit from the front, only the primary image is visible; when illuminated from behind, the hidden magic of the secondary image is revealed.
