Our printed backdrops range in size - from 4ft x 4ft right up to 8ft x 12ft and are available in four different material types.

Due to the nature of the way ink dries on different surfaces, please note that the colours of a design may appear less vibrant to those shown on the website.

Standard Vinyl

Our Standard Vinyl is a white matt vinyl and is a great solution for photographers working to a budget as it is the cheapest option we supply.
As with any vinyl material, it can be prone to lighting and flash glare and for that reason, we do not recommend using this material for darker designs.

Can it be wiped clean? Yes
Is it  waterproof?  Yes, but it can become slippy if used with soapy water
Does it crease? Yes, if not stored correctly
Can it be taped to the wall? Not easily, as it is thick 
Is it glare free? Cannot be guaranteed with darker designs
Can it be used as a floor? Yes, perfect for flooring due to its thickness
Largest size available : 8ft x 8ft
 

 

Poly Paper

Best described as plastic paper, the Poly Paper material creates the most vibrant colours when printed and is very lightweight giving it a smooth finish if taped to the wall rather than clipped to a backdrop stand.

Can it be wiped clean? Yes
Is it  waterproof?  Yes, but it can become slippy if used with soapy water
Does it crease? Yes, if not stored correctly

MATERIALS - looking at the different backdrops

 

 

IRONING CREASES - watch as the different backdrops get ironed

 

CAKE SMASH - watch as the different backdrops cope with butter icing

Please be advised that we recommend wiping icing as quickly as you are able from any of the materials -  the fat content in butter icing may leave grease spots behind if left for long periods
