Art Printers - id Backscenes

id Backscenes ImageArt Printers offer a range of quality photographic backscenes for model railways known as id Backscenes and are suitable for many scales, small to large with N gauge, OO scale and O gauge being more specifically targeted.

Each backscene is beautifully printed and resistant to UV fade due to the process used

Standard Range id Backscenes are produced on 180gsm high quality heavyweight paper. The usual care must be taken when laying these and the paper should not be allowed to become too wet

Premium Range id Backscenes are durable, waterproof, resistant to tearing and scratching as they are printed on Polypropylene so can be used in damp conditions or humid climates. Premium range id Backscenes are self-adhesive or you can leave the backing film intact and use a solvent based adhesive instead, but if using the self-adhesive layer make sure if using chipboard or MDF that and the board is painted first as the adhesive on the backscenes do not work well with porous surfaces.

Art Printers are often planning new back scenes but we can also request them in special sizes, mirror imaged to allow a run to be extended further and they can even do custom Backscenes provided the subject is of good enough quality so please message us to see if we can help personalise your model railway layout!

Building Materials and Low Relief

Produced in tough waterproof self-adhesive polypropylene, Art Printers have also now produced some self-adhesive building material papers so modellers can rapidly make effective buildings and structures with no need for additional glue.

As well as the above, Low Relief Buildings available include terraced houses in Brick and Stone with roofs in either Red tile or Grey Slate. One pack of Low Relief buildings contains four sheets and plus one of Shop Fronts.
