Always follow these guidelines:-
- Our drops work with Studio lighting or Natural lighting.
- The "floors" should be used on a completely flat & clean surface. They will not work with carpet unless something is used underneath like a sheet of wood or concrete flooring etc
- ALWAYS use caution when placing any objects that are not soft on the surface of the floors/drops to ensure you don't scratch the design! Keep in mind that this is a "printed" surface and is not impermeable to being scratched by dragged items/props across the floor/drop. *We cannot be held responsible for scratches on your floor/drop.*
- Floors and backdrops can be stored ROLLED or laid/hung flat to avoid creasing. Do not fold the floors/drops or they can crease.
- If the background becomes creased, either roll it very tightly or leave it hanging, and keep it in a room at a high temperature for a couple of days. The material should become more flexible and the creases will come out.
- We recommend hanging your backdrops from a background stand and securing them in place with clamps. You can either hang the backdrop so it hangs to the floor or alternatively use a baseboard/skirting board and secure it in place with clamps.
Do you offer discounts on your products?
We do offer regular product offers and discounts.

- Any discount is already applied to the prices shown in the product listing.

What materials do we use?
We currently have 2 types of media to choose from:-
- Vinyl - is a durable, pliable material that is a bit heavier than our polypaper option,
yet lightweight and manageable for your backdrops and floordrops. The vinyl is water and tear resistant.
We recommend when buying a drop to use on the floor to order vinyl as it is very durable and be simply wiped clean with a damp cloth.
- Polypaper - is really not "paper" at all. It is a synthetic material that feels like heavy paper.
It's water resistant and will not tear. It's flexible and has a matte finish so there is no glare in any lighting.
It's your best choice for backdrops. No glare whatsoever!
Please Note: Our PolyPaper drops have a border around which reduces the overall width slightly.
- All of our backdrops have a small border around the edge so that you can clamp the backdrop in place without damaging the design.
You can easily cut the additional border off yourself if you would like.
Maintaining my backdrops?
The material we use is a high quality, strong smooth vinyl and has a matte finish and is waterproof.
- Some images may need to be cropped slightly depending on what size product you order.
- Clean with warm soapy water or anti-bacterial wipes.
- Like any printed artwork, your drop needs to be taken care of,particularly for floors and especially dark floors.
- Please store your drops rolled in the tube provided to avoid creasing/damage or leave them hung or laid flat. Avoid creasing.
- Poly Paper is water resistant to a certain extent but we recommend avoiding placing food on a Poly Paper drop. If you have to use a sheet of clear perspex to protect the drop.
What is the biggest backdrop you sell?
- The maximum width in a single print is 5ft, we can print any length, please contact us if you would like longer than 8ft.
- We can also supply the design in 2 halves to make 1 large backdrop upto 10ft x 8ft.
Do the backdrops come on a pole?
The backdrops are supplied in a single sheet unless otherwise stated. The product is designed to be clipped onto a backdrop stand for easy change over and flexibility.
How are my backdrops packaged?
- All of our backdrops are packed and sent to your in a cardboard tube, which has been specifically designed to protect the products during transit.
