Backdrop Printing Options for Any Event Imaginable

Backdrops are an easy yet enriching way to give a professional look to your convention stands, photo booths, store window displays, and public events. They can also be used for stage productions and political campaigns as well. We offer a range of backdrop options to fit all those needs and more.

Backdrops can be ordered with a stand, or on their own if you need an updated display. Create them in a selection of sizes as large as 8’. x 20’ You may also print backdrops on both sides for better visibility when you’re using them as part of a window display. Four different materials are available, including waterproof 13 oz. vinyl and 15 oz. vinyl for outdoor applications. The 13 oz. poly film is perfect for lightweight backdrops or as a canvas for professional photography applications.

Prefer to hang the backdrop on a wall? You can also add pole pockets or grommets to the display.

Note: The backdrop stand comes shipped in its own bag for easy storage, but because of the variety of sizes, the backdrop itself does not include a storage bag.

Backdrop Printing Can Be Your Best Investment Yet

The biggest reason to invest in backdrop printing is less than a foot away from you. You might be holding onto it now. These days, everyone has a high resolution camera in their pocket. We may not realize it, but our smartphones have changed the way large format prints such as backdrops should be done. In an age where everyone at an event will share hi-res pictures taken by their phones to social media, it makes no sense to settle for less when it comes to your custom backdrop printing.   

If there’s something going on, someone’s watching. Whether you use custom printed backdrops for marketing or political campaign events, they can set the tone and underline your main message not just for your immediate audience, but potentially thousands, if not millions of people online.

Even outside large events and social media, you’ll also appreciate the professional look a good backdrop lends to any project that needs large visual elements.This is especially true if you’re a serious photographer, retail display designer, or set designer.

Personalized backdrops can also be used for more intimate occasions, such as weddings. A well-made backdrop can add something extra to memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
