Step and Repeat Backdrops

Step and Repeat Backdrops

A Hollywood star steps onto the red carpet, turns, smiles. The flash of cameras lights up the night. In the background: a step and repeat backdrop

We’ve all witnessed this scene play out on television. Whether at a press conference or an award show, step and repeat backdrops are very commonly seen at events. Often with repeating logos, these banners show up behind celebrities in pictures and videos, giving the businesses who sponsored the repeat backdrop banner exposure.

Why Use a Step and Repeat Backdrop?

The right step and repeat backdrop, used correctly, will help your business:

  • CREATE A VIP FEEL: Let your guests feel like a VIP for the night. Roll out the red carpet and make guests feel like they’re celebrities at your event with a step and repeat backdrop. Give them the perfect photo opportunity as they enter the event by stopping in front of your step and repeat.
  • BRAND YOUR LOGO: Give yourself maximum exposure with your logo prominently displayed on the banner backdrop. Now, everyone who takes a photo in front of your banners will be spreading your brand without even intending to. It simply goes back to a picture. This also helps with your reputation. If people see your logo at a luxury event, you can now position your brand as a luxury one.
  • GAIN EXPOSURE: Banners on a red carpet with logos all over them cannot be missed, especially when someone stops in front to take a picture. Each picture that people take in front of your logo is maximizing your exposure and opportunity that someone will share their photo.
  • CREATE A SELFIE STATION: Step and repeat backdrops essentially become the perfect selfie stations at events. If you want to really spread the word, create a hashtag for your event and encourage people to share their pictures on social media.

Backdrop Options

RPL FABRIC POP UP

One of our most popular backdrop options is the RPL Fabric Pop Up. This one is the most affordable option as well as it’s super easy to assemble and lightweight for transport. Since it is lightweight, this type of backdrop we do not recommend for outdoor use but it makes for a great indoor photo opportunity. The graphic is printed on a dye sublimated fabric material with velcro loop attached to it and the velcro hook is attached to the frame. This makes it very easy to change the graphics out whenever you want, without having to invest in an entirely new set up. When it comes to breaking down the backdrop, it’s easy to collapse and it also comes with a fabric carrying bag. The sizes that the RPL fabric pop up come in include:

5′ high x

5′ wide

7.5′ wide

EZ TUBE BACKDROP

This backwall option uses a tension fabric system to display vibrant graphics in an easy way. The EZ tube, just as it sounds, comes with several tubes that can be slid together and lock the frame into place. The dye sublimated fabric is similar to a pillowcase in the sense that once the frame is put together, you can pull the graphic directly over the frame. At the bottom of the graphic will be a zipper that helps keep the graphic in place and is hidden from viewers. Here are the sizing options available for the EZ tube display:

6′ wide

Curved (Tabletop Version) – 60″ high, single-sided and double-sided available

8′ wide

Curved (Tabletop Version) – 60″ high, single-sided and double-sided available

The finish on the graphic whether fabric or banner material, includes pole pockets on the top, bottom, or all the way around. Here are the sizing options available:

BIG WAVE

The Big Wave option is going to be the premium backdrop option for any trade show booth or event. The panels are printed on a laminated film with magnets attached to the back which helps with easy installation to the frame. The frame itself is a little more difficult to assemble than the others, however, it is a bit more durable since it doesn’t use fabric. The graphic and the frame fit inside in a heavy duty carrying case that can also be converted into a podium counter display. We can print graphics to the front and help to add a little pop to the finished display. The sizes for this include:

8′ wide

89″ high – Graphic package includes 2 pop up lights and a case to counter conversion podium

10′ wide

89″ high – available with black, blue, or silver end caps. Graphic package includes 2 halogen lights and a case to counter conversion podium
