COMPLETE GUIDE TO BACKDROPS
This is your complete guide to backdrop rentals! Featuring tips and tricks about backdrops, setup details, how-to videos, photos, advice, and budget-saving ideas, this guide has all the answers. Read on to learn everything you need to know about backdrops!
WHAT IS A BACKDROP? Backdrops are a frame with drapes. They are used to decorate a venue. Backdrops are often used for wedding sweetheart tables, behind cakes, or even to drape entire venue.
COLORS FOR BACKDROPS?
Backdrops are available in many different colors, including solid and sequins! Click HERE to view the color chart.
Our backdrops are available in height of 8ft tall or 10ft tall, and any width! Choose your size on the order page.
IS THIS THE SAME AS TRADITIONAL PIPE AND DRAPE?
Pipe and drape systems traditionally use large weighted bases and heavy uprights. We use a tripod system. This makes it easy to transport the backdrop, since it is lightweight and collapsible. It also makes for quick and easy setup! Note that because it is a tripod-based system, it's designed for indoor use only. The backdrops are not stable outdoors due to wind. The other main difference is that our portable backdrop naturally has a dip in the middle. To minimize the dip, it is necessary to reduce the crossbar width to 6ft wide instead of the full 12ft wide.
WHAT IS A VALANCE OR SWAG?
A regular backdrop has one layer of drapes. A valance or swag is a second layer of drapes. You can do the second layer of drapes in a different color, or style the drapes to add interest.
HOW TO SETUP BACKDROPS:
It's super easy to setup a backdrop - no experience required! It takes about 10 minutes for every 12ft wide backdrop.
1. Setup 2 tripods
2. Attach crossbar
3. Add drapes
4. Raise tripods
Done! That's all it takes to setup DIY backdrop!
