Frequently Asked Questions

We now offer 4 different backdrop options! Poly Paper, Matte Vinyl, Wrinkle Free Fabric and Newborn Posing Fabric. We offer only the best to our customers! Each type of backdrop offers different benefits. Ask us if you have any questions!

POLY PAPER

Our Poly Paper Backdrops, which are a lightweight but durable material that is really not paper at all but a heavier poly coated material similiar in weight to a heavy magazine cover – with a totally matte finish!

Poly Paper is lighter in weight than vinyl but is still water resistant, scratch resistant and virtually tear-proof.

MATTE VINYL

Our 13 oz matte finish scrim vinyl is not only durable and long lasting, but is also waterproof and easy to clean! Now THAT is good news to anyone’s ears.

Also water and scratch resistant – virtually tear-proof – great for easy handling and hanging. Vinyl is an excellent choice for floor drops!

No more wrinkles! Our new Wrinkle Free Fabric Photography Backdrops are the next generation in backdrops. Simply clamp and pull tight for a smooth finish! Quickly change out backdrops by tossing one to the side. No rolling or storing. Simply fold and stack for easy storage and transporting. Not only are these backdrops wrinkle free but they are also glare free! It doesn’t get much better than this folks!

Fabric Care: Our Wrinkle Free Fabric Photography Backdrops are water resistant and can be gently spot cleaned using a lightly dampened soft cloth (clean with water only & do not scrub). To remove wrinkles or creases in fabric backdrop, pop in the dryer for 10 minutes just prior to using. Some dryers may require more time (15-20 minutes).

Please refer to our UPS Shipping Map to help determine approximately how long it will take your backdrop to reach you.

Drops & Props Size Guide

There are several ways to hang a photography backdrop. The three most popular are:

1. Backdrop Clamps are one of the most popular ways to hang Photography Backdrops.

2. Pole Pockets are another great way to hang your Photography Backdrop. Each of our listings has the option to add a pole pocket.

3. Grommets, although not one of the more ‘professional’ ways to hang your backdrop, are great for a quick fix if you are using your Photography Backdrop as the background of a candy table or the like. You can add grommets to any order for free by including the request in the order notes.
