We use a non-glare vinyl backdrop media for optimal picture opportunities. Durable and easy to set up, our custom backdrop printing is best in class. If you already have the frame, we can make updated backdrops to fit your existing hardware. Or, if you are on a budget, you can rent our heavy-duty metal backdrop hardware and just buy the vinyl backdrop for your event, maximizing your budget. 

We also can print the backdrop in a fabric you like as well. The fabric backdrops are a bit more expensive, but travel very well and can be shipped much easier than vinyl backdrops. Vinyl backdrop printing by AlphaGraphics Camelback is simple and easy.

Some of our best backdrop tips

When thinking about the design of your backdrop, remember that for this use, a simple and less busy background is best to allow the subject photos to be most effective. If you need assistance with setting up your art files for your backdrop, just let us know. We have a staff of professionally trained graphic designers that are experts. Looking for that iconic logo pattern? Gather your logos or image files and we’ll take care of the rest. One last tip about graphics: Remember to use high-resolution or vector-based graphic outline files (such as .eps, PDF, or .AI), since the images will need to scale fairly large for backdrops. Please use a minimum of 150 dpi at 100% size for image files. We can also process your Adobe Indesign files. If your banner stand bleeds, please add a 1/8" bleed (0.125").
