Printed Lighting Solutions: A Promising And Flexible Technology

July 28, 2022

Printed lighting solutions unite two worlds: printing and technology. These flexible, versatile, and durable products are used in organizations worldwide. The advantages of printed lighting solutions are myriad, ranging from improved performance to flexibility, and to a low ecological footprint.


Printed lights are like light bulbs in the shape of paper: thin, flat, and pliable. At e2ip technologies, we offer a variety of printed lighting solutions but there is one technology in particular that stands out for its innovative features: PDT (Printed Diffuser Technology). Based on the principle of thin light guides, this technology enables the creation of ultra-thin backlighting systems. The light is sent and reflected in an optical polymer on which diffusing dots are printed. Thanks to our unique solution we are capable of using a lower amount of LEDs, diffuse uniform lighting and enhance product performance.

Printed lighting solutions are extremely thin, and can be applied virtually anywhere, including in the transportation, aerospace, and defense industries. These thin lights are available in a variety of colors and are an efficient light source alternative.

How Do Printed Lighting Solutions Differ from Standard Lighting Products?

Versatile. Printed lighting is designed using ultra-thin film that is pliable and lightweight. The product can be used in many environments, including outdoors, and can be designed with a high-resolution graphic overlay. At e2ip technologies, printed lighting can be designed in extremely flat, or in narrow wire-like shapes. The light intensity can also be adjusted.

Sustainable. Compared to LED screens, printed lighting uses a fraction of energy. The printed film does not emit heat and is reusable.

Flexible. Unlike conventional light bulbs, which are fragile and give off significant heat, printed lighting materials are thin, lightweight, and can form to any surface. This flexibility allows them to be applied in a variety of industries, including aerospace, medical, defense, industrial, and transport.

Easy to Use. Printed lighting solutions are easy to install, and require little to no maintenance. In addition, printed lighting solutions take up little space.

Economical. Printed lights are one of the most efficient lighting solutions on the market. Their innovative design allows for little to no heat to escape, significantly cutting electricity costs.
