You only have a few seconds to capture those event attendees’ attention before they’re lost in a sea of booths. How can you grab their eyes? Begin with a unique, visually appealing backdrop that boasts bright, compelling graphics and messaging.

The right backdrop can make your event a success

Trade shows and other events offer prime opportunities to showcase your brand and products, while cultivating valuable customer relationships. That may sound like a tall order, but that’s why you need the marketing and communications experts at AlphaGraphics on your team.

Our backdrops include high-resolution full-color printing on premium matte vinyl block out material or fabric. They are made with durable, high-quality edging and include pole pockets and/or grommets if needed. Backdrops are well-suited for indoor or outdoor use and can be produced in any size, although 8’ x 8’ is the most popular.

Become the conversation piece

We can help you design a truly “remarkable” backdrop that not only puts your brand in the limelight but is a conversation piece in and of itself.

Look at the whole picture

When getting started, consider the overall effect of your display when crafting your backdrop. Is the design too busy when combined with other décor and product demos?

We can help you create a cohesive look and feel specific to your event. Don’t have time to deal with the design? We can help set up your art files, create logos and brand appropriate graphics and design the layout. Just provide us whatever files you have, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Robbins Gioia Wall Mural Project

Olivia Mayer and Robbins Gioia asked AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington to create a huge internal mural for their office. This job required detailed and precise measurements because the wall where the image was installed had five windows that were different sizes and at different positions. 

The total size was 238.125"w x 91.3125"h and had to be printed in 5 parts, so an exact alignment was vital to the success. Our installer did a great job installing the mural, and all five pieces fit perfectly together. The client was very happy with the end product.

Backdrops in Alexandria and Arlington

What's the best way to capture the extremely short attention span of trade show attendees?


A colorful and creative custom backdrop from AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington, of course!

Thanks to our state-of-the-art, full-color printers, we can make visually stunning backdrops that will be sure to draw attention. We use premium matte vinyl block out fabric or material to ensure durability and longevity. This will allow you to re-use your backdrops year after year while maximizing your ROI!

Great for both indoor and outdoor usage, we can create any size backdrop you like. Backdrops aren't just for trade shows as there are a wide range of practical uses, such as:

- College admissions
- School events
- Corporate events
- Religious events
- Community events
- And more!

While many companies and organizations use backdrops to promote their products or services, others use them to showcase their business itself. For example, AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington has helped several local businesses design and create a visual storyboard that tells their company's history.
Others will use backdrops to liven in the plain white walls of their office. Provided that you supply high-resolution imagery (that can be easily found or purchased on the internet), we can create visually stunning, life-like backdrops that feature cityscapes or nature scenes.
Back in the olden days, you used to need a team of fairly expensive and highly experienced installers to erect a backdrop at a trade show or other event. All that has changed with the invention of popup displays.
A single person can easily set up a trade show backdrop in a matter of a few minutes. Best of all, the entire system can easily fit into the trunk of a car or supply closet. If transportation is still a concern, AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington can ship the entire display to anywhere in the world where it will be waiting for your arrival!
