Backdrop banners are made from fabric, mesh or vinyl. They are typically used to set the tone for red carpets, press conferences, photo shoots, sporting events, weddings, formal dances and other upscale events. Backdrop banners are designed to eliminate visual distractions and provide a memorable background for promotional photography.
Custom backdrop banner design is a powerful marketing tool when deployed with logos and branding materials. Companies and organizations across a variety of industries use these eye-catching backgrounds for corporate events and office spaces.
There are multiple options for colorful custom backdrop designs, including:
Vinyl is typically more cost-effective than fabric.
In the signage industry, the terms "backdrop banners” and “step and repeat banners” both refer to large-format vinyl, mesh, fabric or canvas banners commonly set up for publicity at high-profile events.
From simple, one-dimensional banners on basic frames to custom-shaped or three-dimensional installations, there are many different types of backdrops available.
When ordering a backdrop banner, printing is a factor to consider. Some backdrop banners may need double-sided printing, while for others, one side is sufficient. Here are some important considerations:
Backdrop banners can be ordered with or without a frame and stand. Frames can also be purchased separately, which increases the number of style options available. A basic frame supports a banner under tension and provides stability using sturdy feet.
The style of frame you choose will depend on how your backdrop banner is constructed. Some use grommets, while others feature pole-pockets. Custom shapes and three-dimensional backdrops require bespoke frames.
Backdrop banners are inherently less portable than retractable banners. They typically pack into a carrying case along with their frame. Assembly can be a two-person task.
