Backdrops to Elevate Parties and Events

Promote your brand and business with custom backdrops. These are large signs that can definitely be useful during trade shows, fairs, conferences, and other business events. These can also serve as step and repeat banners for photo opportunities.

Print backdrops and improve the ambiance of your events and shoots. Whether you choose to print large sceneries, promote your logo, or create your pattern and design, our backdrop printing services at NextDayFlyers let you personalize to suit your requirements and application.

Choose from two (2) durable vinyl materials for your backdrops:

Standard 13 oz. scrim vinyl has a matte finish, which provides great visibility even in bright light. This popular option is economical and lasts three to five years even in the outdoors.

18 oz. matte vinyl is thicker than the standard vinyl banner material and is puncture resistant. The smooth, durable surface is great for outdoor and indoor use. This is our strongest vinyl material and lasts up to five years outdoors.

It’s easy to customize and print any product on our website. Just select your preferred product specs such as size, quantity, material, and printing turnaround on the order calculator. You can choose to upload your own artwork file or create a layout from scratch using our online design tool. When you checkout, our resident print experts can also review your design for free to make sure it’s ready for printing.

Print backdrops today and we can have your order ready for shipping in just a few business days.

Choose the Right Backdrop Size

We offer five (5) standard sizes that range from 96” x 60” to 240” x 96”. Our three (3) most popular sizes:

  • 120” x 96” (10’ x 8’ feet) is a favorite size among our customers. This backdrop size fits a big group of up to 8 people and suits large parties and events.
  • 96” x 60” (5’ x 8’ feet) fits only one to two persons at a time, perfect for solo and couple portraits. This backdrop size is often used for small studios and photobooths.
  • 96’ x 96’ (8’ x 8’ feet) fits a small group of 4 to 5 people in one photo.

Your personalized backdrops can also include hemming with or without grommets, and pole pockets (that can fit a 2” diameter pole) at the top and bottom.

Design Tips for Custom Backdrops

Use crisp high-resolution images. Because your backdrop design will be enlarged for large viewing distances, your image resolution needs to be in 300 dots per inch (dpi) or higher to prevent degradation and pixelation.

Save in CMYK color mode. Computers use an RGB color mode that is different from the CMYK color mode used by printers. Changing your artwork to CMYK will ensure the accuracy of the colors in the finished printout.

Make sure the fonts are embedded. If you add text to your design, check that your fonts are embedded so the final results are crisp and accurate.

Can I print on both sides of the backdrop?
Yes. Be sure to select Full Color on the Back Side dropdown option in the order calculator.

How do I get my design proofed for free?
On the product page, select Upload Your File. After uploading your design, select I Need a PDF Proof under the proofing option. Our prepress team will create a PDF proof and email you as soon as it is ready for you to review. Your files will not be queued to print until you approve the proof.


What file type and resolution is needed if we are going to use our own design? Also, what are the trim and bleed specs?

Asked by: Lolly
For banner printing, optimal resolution will be 300 dpi in most cases. But if you will be hanging your banner where it will not be seen up close, 150 dpi resolution will suffice. We recommend viewing your free PDF proof at 100% magnification to see how your artwork will look on your printed banner to decide which resolution will best suit your purposes. Files for banners do not require bleed. We suggest submitting a press quality PDF that is the exact size of the banner you'll be printing, with graphics, images, and text in CMYK color mode and optimal resolution (as mentioned above). Example - For a 2' x 3' custom banner, we would ask for a 2' x 3' PDF in CMYK color mode with 150-300 dpi resolution.
