  • Patent number: 11143888
    Abstract: According to an aspect, a substrate for a display apparatus includes: a first substrate; a translucent coloring layer that includes a plurality of color regions and that overlaps with the first substrate; a first translucent resin layer that overlaps with the first substrate at boundaries of the color regions; and a light shielding layer that overlaps with the first translucent resin layer on an opposite side to the first substrate side. A width of the light shielding layer in a direction parallel with the first substrate is equal to or smaller than a width of the first translucent resin layer in the parallel direction on a cross section vertical to the first substrate.
