Backdrop, Step and Repeat Banner Printing

A custom backdrop provides the perfect photo opportunity for personal events, bars/clubs, red carpet events, and corporate events. With endless possibilities, a step and repeat can have an image that matches the event’s theme, company names and logos, or even the social media hashtag.

When captured in the event photos, the backdrop will help give guests a memento of the evening they can appreciate for years to come, and turn into social media content that is great for branding. Backdrops can also be used to provide decoration at an event or hide a prep area from public view.

Different Types of Backdrop Printing

What Are Backdrops?

Backdrops are large format vinyl banners printed with a design or image. To fit your event, the following customization options are available for backdrops:

  • Sizing – 8’ x 8’ or 8’ x 10’, with custom sizes possible.
  • Material – 13 oz or 15 oz vinyl is recommended.
  • Finishing Options – Matte or glossy finish.

Backdrops can be printed with any graphic using solvent or UV cured inks. Our white vinyl ensures color clarity and sharpness for logos, designs, and imagery that will show well in photographs. We use a trimming process that produces smooth, clean edges on the vinyl for a professional appearance.

We also provide wall decals and backdrops with stands for the greatest flexibility in positioning. Stands are highly stable to keep the sign safely mounted and can be set up on most flat surfaces.

Benefits of Backdrops

When you want to make an impact at your event, backdrops offer several benefits:

  • Memorable and Exciting – Whether its a wedding, birthday party, dance club, or corporate gala, guests love having a photo to remember the evening. A step and repeat at an event gives the perfect chance for guests to strike a pose.
  • Customizable – Backdrops can also be printed with any solid color or design to match the event theme. They can have full graphics, logos, text, and any other design. They can also be in any size, though there are standard sizes.
  • Promotional Opportunity – As an added benefit for event sponsors, backdrops can showcase logos or company names. Guest photos will offer these companies continued exposure, making for a valuable opportunity.
Many event and party planners add a step and repeat at the entrance to take their event to the next level. When it comes to concerts and ceremonies in NYC, a photo backdrop might even be expected.
