Packaging

As standard all our fabrics are sent out folded. This means that some fabrics may arrive with slight creases. These can be easily ironed out on a low heat or will fall out over time once hung. Alternatively, fabrics can be sent out on a 2.5m roll, however, this will incur an additional £25 to cover extra packaging and delivery.

Our printed band banners, backdrop banners, stage scrims and stage backdrops are custom-made and printed to any size to suit your needs. Superbly printed for incredible colour reproduction under any lighting conditions. No matter the size of your band’s venues, if you are performing in a small pub or a big theatre, our custom backdrops for bands will do the job.

We know the live entertainment experience should be a memorable one. That’s why we specialise in creating high-impact festival-quality custom band backdrops that are built to last, no matter how lairy tour-life gets. Our premium fabric band banners are made from a resilient tight-weave knit that’s completely flame retardant without sacrificing beauty. Printed in full vibrant colour, we can provide your band, theatre production, comedy show or event with signage that’ll be remembered by audiences long after the lights fade and the amps are turned off.

Premium Fabric Backdrops

We usea high quality 210gsm Polyester to produce our Premium fabric Band Banners, Backdrop Banners, Stage Scrims, Custom Banners for Bands and Stage Backdrops. Our backdrops are printed using Dye Sublimation print technology.  This means they won’t run or fade.  To clean, you can wipe smaller areas with a damp cloth or machine wash when required at low temperature. Roll or fold your backdrops between gigs to keep them in perfect condition.

We produce our backdrop banners and stage scrims using the latest printing technology.  Once printed our skilled finishing team take over, carefully adding seams, hems, eyelets and even pole pockets.  Standard finishing includes hem and eyelets. We only use specialist quality plastic eyelets in our backdrops which won’t rust and damage the backdrop.

GUIDE TO BUYING BAND BANNERS

Fit For Purpose Band Backdrops

There’s nothing more important for emerging bands than getting your name in front of new audiences. As such, finding the perfect printed stage backdrop or band banner is more than just a throwaway purchase. It is an invaluable asset to your act’s arsenal, aesthetic and ethos that not only serves a purpose but helps cement your place as a band that means business.

The right band banner can add an effortless air of professionalism whilst getting your name out there and engaging new fans at every tour stop.  All future stadium fillers have to start somewhere and your custom made band scrim, band banner or stage background will be with you every step of the way.

If you’re a touring musician the last thing you want is for your signage to let you down. Sure, playing to potential new fans is good but if they can’t remember your name, you’re unlikely to see them again.

Cheap event banners or PVC banners can ruck or decline in quality over time – ultimately impacting your image. Our fabric band banners, backdrop banners, custom made backdrops and scrims easily roll and fold away, ready to be used again.

Spot a crease? Simply iron it out on a low heat and watch it disappear. Meanwhile, their lightweight material makes them a dream to pack away and transport to your next event.

Band Backdrop Specification

  • Tough 210gsm lightweight polyester fabric
  • Flame retardant to B1 specification
  • Ideal for indoor or outdoor use
  • Dye sublimation print for stunning reproduction
  • Anti-glare and non-reflective finish
  • Machine washable at 30 degrees

Any Design in Full Colour

We print from your artwork – this can be your band logo or other design including photographic or illustrated backgrounds. Thousands of high-resolution backdrop themes and ideas are available from image banks such as the Adobe Stock Library for very little cost.

Not too hot on design? That’s fine too – just email us with a design brief and we will lay out your custom backdrops for you.

Ideal for band banners, band scrims, stage backdrops, exhibition displays, theatre backdrops, podium backdrops and point of sale displays. We print these using dye-sublimation technology to provide eye-popping vibrant colours and photo-quality images. We print fabrics on rolls up to 3.2m wide to provide huge seamless panels, or combine panels together to produce enormous one-piece backdrops.

High Quality Materials

Our standard 210gsm knitted polyester fabric has a tight weave, allowing us to print to an exceptionally high resolution. Therfore even the smallest details will look superb.

Our premium fabric backdrops couldn’t be easier to clean, which is handy because you never know what might be flying about at a festival or rock show. Just use a damp cloth for smaller areas or machine wash at a low temperature to make the whole thing good as new. Once they’re back in tip-top condition, simply roll or fold your backdrop to keep it in perfect condition between gigs. Use this method and your premium fabric backdrop will be sparkling whenever it’s time to hit the stage.

Finishing Included

Choose hems and eyelets and/or pole pockets depending on how you intend to install the backdrop. For example, we can provide eyelets at the top for easy hanging, then a pole pocket at the bottom through which a weighted rod, poles, chain or metal pipe can be slid to offer some tension. We also finish backdrops to fit across lighting rigs, with eyelets in each corner for easy fixing with bungee clips or cable ties. A Backdrop Stand is available if you require a portable structure.

Why Choose a Fabric Band Backdrop?

  • Our band backdrops are lightweight and easily shifted from venue to venue, regardless of whether that’s inside or outside. Simply roll or fold them up and you’ll be on your way, minus any creases.
  • Band banner a bit messy? It’s nothing a quick wipe clean won’t fix. They’re even machine washable at 30 degrees if things get a little too out of hand on the road.
  • Our products are 100% safe and come with a flame-retardant fire safety certificate.
  • They’re recyclable and more environmentally friendly than their vinyl PVC counterparts so you can rock out in the knowledge that you’re doing your part for the environment.
  • Best of all: they practically pay for themselves when it comes to free advertising

High Quality and Affordable Band Backdrops

Got great ideas but little disposable income? No problem. We’re dedicated to keeping our backdrop banners and stage backdrops as affordable as possible while maintaining an unbeatable quality. All fabric band banners are fully customisable with hem, eyelets and/or pole pocket finishing included free of charge. Plus our lightweight, durable and flame retardant material makes them easy to hang, regardless of venue.

When the gig’s over, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your printed band banner is easily packed away and ready to transport and our dye-sublimation print process ensures a fade-free longevity. We’ll print your logo or signage in vibrant eco-friendly inks that’ll come alive under the glow of stage lighting and best of all, our band banners are glare-free so photographers and fans will never have trouble remembering your name.

Backdrop Options

We can also make even cheaper band banners and stage scrims from standard PVC or Mesh banner material. Although these do save on initial cost, larger cheap band banners are more difficult to pack without creasing, take up more storage room and will not look as good for as long.

SPECIAL LINKS FOR BANDS

LEMONROCK GIG GUIDE

Design Guide for Band Backdrops

Set your dimensions correctly

Please set your artwork to the correct dimensions of your final printed band banner.  We do not require any bleed on the artwork for a printed backdrop. If necessary, you can set your artwork to scale.

Set the correct CMYK colour settings

Please make sure that you set your colour settings to CMYK.  Our backdrop banner printers use a full colour dye-sublimation printing process which works using cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks.  Files that are sent to use using an RGB setup will be changed automatically.  Sometimes this can make the colours on your printed backdrop seem weak & washed out.  We will check for this before printing and contact you if required.

Position of eyelets on your Printed Band Banners

Please leave a clear area of approx 50mm inside the edge of the banner. Background colour / images are fine, just no important text elements, small print or logos as these can be obscured by the eyelets.  We will add hems and eyelets unless otherwise stated.  It is not advisable to have just eyelets (without the hem) as this can cause the material to rip.
We space our eyelets approx every 500mm apart unless otherwise stated.  Eyelets will be evenly spaced so might vary slightly on different sizes of banners.

Pole Pockets on Band Banners

We can finish your band banners with pole pockets if required.  Please make sure when ordering / setting of your artwork that your artwork / finished file size is set to the finished overall size of the banner including the pole pockets.  Standard scaffold tubes require a 150mm flat pocket size to fit comfortably with plenty of space as to not cause to much tension on the pocket seam.  Please ensure that you leave a clear area at the top and the bottom of the banners to allow for the pockets. To explain – if your banner is 2m height please set to 2m height and then make sure that no text, logos and important info enters the top 150mm or bottom 150mm of the design area.  Solid colour/ background images or patterns are fine just not text or vital information. Check here for more information on pole pockets and how to design for them.

Band Banner Design Principles

For band banner design it is always important to consider viewing distances.  Always create your artwork to give the highest possible impact. Contrasting colours will give your banner much more clout than washed out subtle colours.
A single band logo is usually ideal for a band backdrop design, or even a step and repeat design.
Consider the size of your text.  From a distance, larger text is easier to read.  Use upper and lower fonts.  Road signs are all in upper and lower type rather than all capitals. Subconsciously your eyes will read upper and lower (sentence case).  Font type… Clearer fonts work better than fancy, stripy or script fonts.  Look at the backdrops for the big performers – they often just display the band name.
Cramming every little bit of information onto your band backdrop banner is not a good idea.  Less is more. Remember to use clear areas of space and give your design space to breathe.  The best backdrops are always simple and straight to the point.

DOWNLOAD: artwork-guidelines.pdf

FILE FORMATS WE ACCEPT
PDF, Jpeg, PSD, eps (CS 6 or earlier) Ai, (CS 6 or earlier)

COLOURS
We only accept files converted to CMYK.

SCALE
We accept files at
Actual size or
1:2 scale (50% actual size)
1:5 scale (20% actual Size)
1:10 scale (10% actual size)
1:20 scale (5% actual size)

DPI
The ideal DPI is 125dpi if possible. At 125dpi this can make very large graphics huge in memory size, so on larger graphics i.e. 5m x 2.5m you can go down as low as 50dpi. As a rule the larger the graphic the greater the viewing distance hence the lower the dpi can be.

Small / medium sized graphics 125 PPI (DPI) Large sized graphics 50-100PPI (DPI)

FONTS / TYPE
Please make sure that all text is created to outlines / curves before uploading. Even on PDF files make sure you create outlines before saving.

BLEED
No Thanks, No bleed is required on your artwork.

CLEAR AREA
Please leave a clear area of 50mm to allow for eyelets. (Please ensure that all text / logos / critical information is more than 50mm from the edge of your artwork) Background colours and images are fine going into the clear areas.

POLE POCKETS
When ordering make sure you select the finished overall size of your banner including the pockets. So if you select a 1m wide x 2m height, then we will manufacture the banner to a total the height of 2m including the pockets.
(clear areas on pole pockets)
Please make sure that you leave a clear area for your pockets. The term ‘clear area’ means no items of text or logos to run into these areas. Background colours or hackgrtoudn images are fine, just no readable text or logos. So if you are ordering a 1m wide x2m height banner with pole pockets top and bottom, then please keep the bottom 150mm free and the top 150mm free from text and logos. This will make the overall visual area 1m wide x 1.7m height.
Double sided banners
We have special software which flips certain parts of your banners so as to create a seamless pocket on the opposite side. When ordering a double sided banner please just follow the above steps, as the file(s) will need to be set up in the same way. If you require a different image on each side of your double sided banner not a problem, just upload x2 files stating that you require a different image on each side.

COLOUR MATCHING
We can match pantones if required at an additional charge (please contact us before proceeding) as this is costed per job. We cannot guarantee an exact match on colours due to limitations of the CMYK print process but will try to achieve as close as physically possible.

FAQ Back to top

Why are your the costs for your backdrops much lower than other suppliers?

We have developed our own unique manufacturing system. This system allows us to automate most parts of the print and finishing processes. We can now produce high quality backdrops at much lower costs than our competitors.

Are you backdrops good quality?

Yes. Our backdrops are excellent quality. We have 1000’s of happy customers all around the globe.

Will you check my artwork?

Yes if there is a problem we will contact you. You are though responsible for supply your artwork correctly, and we cannot be held responsible if you send a wrong or incorrect file.

What is the print process?

We print our backdrops using a CMYK Dye sublimation process. Click here for more details.

What colour is the fabric?

The fabric starts out white. We can print any colour you require as we use a full colour CMYK print process. We then print your image onto the white material. If you require for example a banner with a black background please make sure that the background of your artwork is black, set to C-0%, M-0%, Y-0%, K-100%.

Will my backdrop require a join?

Backdrops which are under 2.9m in height will not require a join. Larger backdrops will have a seam where sections pieces of material are joined together. Due to the increase in the viewing distance on larger backdrops a join is never very noticeable.

How long will my backdrop last?

If you look after your backdrop it will last for years. When packing up just fold up neatly as you would a bed sheet and ideally store away from direct sunlight and dust. Over time direct sunlight will bleach your backdrop.

Are your backdrops water proof?

Yes our backdrops are fully waterproof so can be used outside if required. Like any material Please make sure you dry before storing as this can cause mold which may ruin your backdrop.

Can I Iron my backdrop if it develops creases in storage?

Yes you can iron the material on a low heat.

Can I wash my backdrop?

Yes you can wash on a very low heat of 30 degrees.

What type of eyelets do you use?

We use special plastic eyelets on all our backdrop products. These items don’t rust like other supplier’s cheap metal eyelets so as not to ruin the backdrop.

How do you produce your hems?

The hems are folded and then professionally machine stitched to create a strong durable edge. Edges that don’t require any eyelets will be stitched as standard which will stop the edges fraying.

Can I have pole pockets?

Yes we can manufacture pole pockets at whatever size you require. For a standard scaffold tube you will need a 150mm flat pocket size.

What if I don’t see the finishing I require?

Please enter your specialist information into the additional information box. Most standard finishing is free but if this isn’t something which we class as standard finishing we will contact you to advise.

Is this product fire rated?

Yes this product is fire rated and conforms with all UK/EU fire regulations. You can download the fire cert here.

Can you ship around the world?

Yes we can ship world wide. Please email us for a quotation.

How much is shipping?

Backdrops which are over £250 will be shipping for free. Orders under £250 will cost £12 to ship to UK mainland. T&C’s apply.

Can light shine through my backdrop from behind?

Yes light will shine through on our standard 210gsm polyester material. Some customers like to experiment with different lighting effects from backlighting to front lighting. If you require a backdrop which won’t show light through from behind then you need to choose our Blockout band banner.
