Electroluminescent displays are part of an emerging technology known as printed electronics. Most identify printed electronics with purely electronic purposes such as the Radio frequency identification (RFID). Now the electronics and graphic communication industries have come together to create of new forms of products that interact with customers. Flexible, electronic circuits use functional inks and traditional printing methods such as screen printing, gravure, and inkjet. Printed electronics are perfect for low performance applications, such as displays, labels, clothing and batteries. This paper focuses on creating an interactive electroluminescent (EL) display. In selling a product, displays are important because most customers purchase a product for the first time based on how the product draws customers’ attention. The display’s purpose is to create point of purchase advertising that draws the customers’ attention to the product advertised by the electroluminescent display over other conventional displays in a store.
