Media Backdrops - Step and Repeat Logo Boards

One of the most popular occasions for printed photo backdrops are red carpet media events, where guests or celebrities pose for a picture in front of printed background with sponsor's or event logos. The boards normally feature small logos printed and repeated making a regular, evenly spaced and distributed pattern. For that reason these types of media backdrops or press boards have become known as step and repeat media boards. These can be seen during interviews after most football matches.

Custom Photo Backdrops for Themed Parties and Entertainment

Photo backdrops have been popular for a very long time. Now, with the new photo booths on the market they are starting to be highly popular again. Celebrity and corporate events are the usual occasions for backdrops with sponsor logos. However, recently they are also popular for pure fun and entertainment purposes in pubs and clubs, at social events and themed parties. Guests can pose in front of your custom printed backdrop having memorable photographs taken. Even if it is not a high profile event your guests or customers can feel and act like celebrities having lots of fun. Photos like these would be really worth keeping or even framing and putting on a wall as a nice souvenir.

Freestanding Printed Stands with Head Holes Cut Out

An even more entertaining alternative to simply printed backdrops are photo opportunity boards with head holes cut out. Usually the boards are printed with some funny characters with their heads cut out so people can stick their heads through the board, often making funny facial expressions to take an unforgettable picture.

If you need any photo backdrop boards printing for any idea you may have – just contact us and we will do our best to give you full advice and print the boards exactly as you wish.

Stage props printing for theatrical events

We have accomplished some amazing stage props for theatrical productions. If you need any kind of stage props for your show or movie background (scenography), we can print any background boards/panels and cut them to any shape you may require. So far we have produced props such as buildings, city landscapes, trees and nature landscapes as well as people and characters. In cases where the maximum size of a sheet is smaller than your background we can split your artwork allowing you to position and piece it together on your stage.

What material is best for me?

There are at least a few different board types we could use for printing backdrops. However, we recommend either 5mm foamex or 5mm foam centred board as the best options. You will find them listed in the PRICES TAB above. Foam Core boards are very light, easy to move around and cheaper but they are also relatively fragile. Foamex is a hard, rigid and relatively heavy material and therefore recommended for regular or repeated use (especially for stands with head holes) to minimalize accidental damage.  

Please see below prices for freestanding backdrops printed with your artwork supplied. The difference between foamex and foam core is that foamex is harder, heavier and water resistant while foam core is very light and indoor only display material with foam centre.

What material do you recommend for freestanding custom backdrops?

For using your stand repeatedly on many occasions we recommend 5mm foamex. Foamex is harder and more rigid material and is also waterproof. For short term use or where the low weight is important we recommend foam centred board. Foam board is cheaper and provides very similar print finish as foamex but it is much lighter and consequently more fragile than foamex stand.

How do you print your backdrop stands?

All boards are normally printed direct to the board on our flat bed printers using UV inks.
