✤ VINYL COATED CANVAS (52", 61" & 8FT width) (recommended best for backdrops AND floordrops / heavy-weight and super durable!)
Our Vinyl Coated Canvas backdrops print beautifully on our state of the art printers. The Vinyl Coated Canvas we use from our supplier(s) is a thick; heavy weight vinyl material that will withstand daily usage and last for years when handled with care. It has an ultra smooth, strong reinforced construction weaved between vinyl layers that is HIGH quality with HIGH durability. The finish is smooth and yields a superior print resolution and image quality. The material has a matte finish on both sides. Prints on this material are COMPLETELY WATER-PROOF AND SMEAR-PROOF due to the ECO-SOLVENT ink we use in our state of the art printers. Vinyl coated canvas cleans up with a GENTLE application of warm soapy water (do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive implements to clean).
Because your drop or floor is a printed surface it needs to be handled with the utmost care; keeping in mind that this is a "printed" surface that is not impermeable to being scratched. We suggest you store them rolled.
*If you prefer a lighter weight material that is 100% Non-Glare/100% Non REFLECTIVE in any lighting condition please read about our POLY PAPER, POLYESTER WRINKLE RESISTANT FABRIC, or NEOPRENE MATERIAL below.
✤ POLY PAPER (60" width) (recommended best for backdrops versus floors and for backdrops very dark in color)
Our Poly Paper backdrops print beautifully on our state of the art printers. The name "Poly Paper" is deceiving because the material is not paper. It's actually a sturdy synthetic alternative that feels/looks like a heavy weight paper. The ECO-SOLVENT ink we use allows the printed image on our Poly Paper to be 100% NON GLARE/100% NON REFLECTIVE in ANY lighting condition. It has a matte finish and is perfect for our dark-colored backdrop designs!
The 'material' is tear resistant but still needs to be handled with the utmost care; keeping in mind that this is a "printed" surface that is not impermeable to being scratched, scuffed, or creased. To avoid creasing we suggest you store them rolled.
*If you plan to use the poly material as a floordrop where wetness may occur (not recommended) we suggest you protect it with a UV spray to avoid damage to the printed surface.
✤ Polyester Fabric Material (available single sided with a 2" pole pocket included from 8FTx8FT to 10FTx10FT)
The material is an wrinkle free polyester with a 2" pole pocket included on the shorter side (except where noted in parenthesis in the size selection drop down). The polyester backdrops can be hung up easily from your backdrop stand with the pole pocket, using clamps, or tack it to your wall. They are perfect for in-studio or on-location because of their extreme portability! The material is low maintenance and durable. Simply toss them to the side without worry of creasing during shoots, allowing you to move from one set up to another quickly! Fold them in between uses to save you tons of space! It has a 100% Matte finish and is 100% NON GLARE in ANY lighting condition.
We recommend spot cleaning the material. If you find slight wrinkles present in the fabric from the shipping process; simply toss them in the dryer on low heat and the wrinkles will disappear.
