Our printed band banners, backdrop banners, stage scrims for bands and stage backdrops are custom-made and printed to any size to suit your needs. Our printed backdrops give 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 backdrops for bands that are built to last, no matter how lairy tour-life gets. Our premium fabric band banners come printed on a resilient tight-weave knit that’s completely flame retardant without sacrificing beauty.
Custom Band Banners & Backdrop Banner Printing
We print your backdrop banner with the artwork you’ve uploaded. If it’s a black background you require, then please set your artwork with a CMYK mix of 10:10:10:100. Our premium backdrop banner printing for bands is ideal to use on stage against a solid surface. Choose our Blockout Band Backdrop if you need to block out all light from behind.
Premium Fabric Backdrops
We use a high-quality 210gsm Polyester to produce our Premium Fabric Band Banners, Backdrop Banners, Stage Scrims, Custom Banners for Bands and Stage Backdrops. Our backdrop banners are printed using Dye Sublimation print technology.
The Dye Sublimation process means our backdrops for bands won’t run or fade. To clean, you can wipe smaller areas with a damp cloth or machine wash when required at a low temperature. Roll or fold your band 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 printed backcloth.
Our maximum print width on premium fabrics is 3 metres. Backdrops larger than this in one dimension will have panels seamed together. We do have alternative materials with a width of up to 5 metres. Double-sided backdrops are also available.
The Backdrop For Bands
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.
The right band banner can add an effortless air of professionalism while getting your name out there and engaging new fans at every gig.
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? 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.

Any Design in Full Colour
We print from your artwork and print-ready files – 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 minimal cost.
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 large seamless panels or combine panels to produce enormous one-piece backdrops.
Our standard 210gsm knitted polyester fabric used for backdrop banner printing has a tight weave, allowing us to print to an exceptionally high resolution. Therefore even the smallest details will look superb.
Choose hems and eyelets or pole pockets depending on how you intend to install the backdrop.
Hem and eyelets
Ideal for hanging banners using zip ties, chord or string.
A top pocket is ideal for using a cable or bungee to hang. Pole pocket at the bottom of the backdrop is the right solution for weighing down your banner and adding some tension.

High Quality and Affordable Band Backdrops
Got great ideas but little disposable income? No problem. We are the lowest cost supplier of backdrop printers in the UK. We can print banners and stage backdrops at the best prices possible while maintaining an unbeatable quality. All fabric band banners are fully customisable with hem, eyelets or pole pocket finishing included free of charge. Plus our lightweight, durable and flame retardant material makes them easy to hang, regardless of venue.
We print our backdrops using state of the art Dye sublimation technology. Dye sublimation offers anti-fade and extra longevity. All of our premium backdrops are anti-glare, so won’t reflect light.
Flame Retardancy Certificate
Our Fire Certificate for this product is unique in the industry in that we have our fabrics tested for flame retardancy after printing and finishing. Many venue safety officers will now not accept a generic fire safety certificate if it is just for the base fabric. Tested to the highest UK standards, our backdrops surpass BS5867-2: 2008: Type B.
More Eco-Friendly than PVC Banners
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 away. They also take up more storage room and will not look as good for as long.
Our Blockout Band Backdrops use the same high-quality material as our Premium Backdrops, with the addition of a layer of black resin on the back to block out all light from behind.
Satin Backdrops add extra sheen and glitz.

Design Guide for Band Backdrops
Set your dimensions correctly
Set the correct CMYK colour settings
Position of eyelets on your Printed Band Banners
Pole Pockets on Band Banners
We can finish your band banners with pole pockets if required. Please ensure that your artwork is the correct dimensions of the of the size you require. 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. Solid colour/ background images or patterns are fine just not text or vital information.

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.
Consider adding a QR Code on your design which will link to your band’s website or social media page.
