Step And Repeat Banner

What Are Step and Repeat Banners?

Often referred to as backdrops, step and repeat banners are typically used as a backdrop for photos at trade shows and other events. They are comprised of one or more repeating logos, hence the name step-and-repeat.

They are a great way to advertise sponsors at an event as well as providing a great place for attendees to take pictures. They provide a great non-intrusive form of advertising.

Q:
Is it called a ‘Step and Repeat banner’ or a ‘backdrop’? Is there a difference?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
The most common name of the product offered is a “Step and Repeat banner”. The Step and Repeat portion indicates a display that is easily assembled and often used as a picture backdrop. Thus, many call the product a photography backdrop or simply “backdrop”. While we will mostly call it a Step and Repeat banner rest assured that any instance of backdrop, or a close variation, on this page still refers to the same product. Whether it’s called a Step and Repeat, a backdrop or some combination or variation of the two it serves the same purpose of a versatile display option for events, photos and more.
Q:
Can the Step and Repeat banner be used as a photography backdrop?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Assuming the photographer is aware that the Step and Repeat banner does not contain any special lighting or photography accessories, our Step and Repeat banners can easily be used as an affordable photo backdrop. An added bonus is that the fabric is not reflective in nature like a vinyl backdrop being used as a photo backdrop. Nonetheless, one simply needs to be aware of the limitations of doing so in lieu of a professional photography backdrop. It is a fabric banner with a metal frame that, with customizable printing, can serve as a background of any kind of potential photography.
Q:
What material is the banner made of? Are there any other materials available for Step and Repeat banners?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Our Step and Repeat banners are made from a 9 oz. polyester fabric material, which provides for a vibrant, durable banner. We currently do not offer any other materials for our Step and Repeat banners.

Q:
What are the differences between the polyester fabric banner and a muslin fabric banner? What about canvas, vinyl, and mesh banners?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Polyester fabric is a synthetic, lightweight material that offers exceptional functionality for a banner material. Polyester is durable against fading and has resistance to tearing. Designs are printed using a heat transfer process, providing for a long-lasting, scratch resistant design.

Muslin fabrics are commonly comprised of natural cotton, which can be compared to delicate cotton cloth. Muslin banners are typically used for decorations. Designs are either sewn into the banner itself or screen printed on the material. Muslin banners are strictly for indoor use and are less durable that the polyester counterpart.

Canvas prints or banners are comprised of a thick linen or cotton blend, which exceed the durability of a muslin fabric, but are less durable than a polyester material. Canvas is commonly used as a surface for painting and printing photographs, as well as decorative purposes.

Vinyl is a thick, high-quality material that excels in durability. Our vinyl banners are made of a 13 oz. vinyl and are printed on using UV ink, which offers a fade and scratch resistant design. Vinyl banners are suitable for indoor and outdoor use, are generally weather resistant, and can be easily rolled up or folded for storage.

We’ve found that the best material to use for a step and repeat banner or backdrop is the 9 oz polyester. The rich colors and clear printing combined with the matte appearance make it ideal for picture taking.

Q:
How thick are your Step and Repeat banners? Do you offer any other thickness options?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
We use a 9 oz. polyester fabric for our Step and Repeat banners. In our experience, 9 oz. polyester fabric is the perfect banner material for indoor display purposes and short-term outdoor use. The designs printed on fabric banners are vibrant and long-lasting due to the tightly woven fabric holding the ink. We do not currently offer any other thickness options for our Step and Repeat banners.
Q:
What are the minimum and maximum dimensions of your banners?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
We currently offer a 8’x8’, 9’x8’, 10’x8’ fabric banner that attaches to a Step and Repeat frame or backdrop.
Q:
What material is the Step and Repeat frame or backdrop made of?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
The poles of the frame are aluminum, which offers a rigid structure while maintaining a lightweight nature. The grip portions of the poles are a durable plastic in order to loosen the extendable poles for height/width adjustments.
Q:
Is the frame adjustable in size?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Yes. The frame will easily fit any of the three sizes that we currently offer. The frame can be adjusted from 73”-132” wide and 39.5”-106.5 high.
Q:
Do you print double-sided banners for the Step and Repeat?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

We do not offer double-sided banners for the Step and Repeat banner as it is most commonly used as some form of event display or photo backdrop. If you are looking to create a standard double-sided vinyl banner, please contact us for a quote.

Q:
Does the banner allow light to pass through it? Does it offer a degree of transparency?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
The fabric material does offer the ability for light to be visible through the banner, but the banner is not transparent in nature due to fabric being used. Visible light is likewise more limited with darker color backdrops versus lighter ones.
