More Information »

Veil Backdrop printing is a very thin textile that allows the printed graphics to be seen from both sides. Used in theatres for soft backdrops with lighting effects and helps you create 3D-look graphics by combining layers. Layering a veil backdrop over another backdrop creates visual depth to your stage or show. The layering effect provides depth and movement to any stage production or display. Printed Veil is a fantastic solution for creating subtly branded screening, and you can create superb effects using fairy lighting to illuminate your backdrop.

Veil Backdrops

Printed veil backdrops create beautiful scenes for any application and look sublime in any setting. Printed Veil has a wide range of uses and is popular with stage performances and weddings. Perfect for screening or event curtains, custom Veil is ideal for branding party gazebos to screen intimate gathering areas. Referred to as ‘Voile printing’ within the industry, Voil is a thin fabric that lets light pass through.

Veil banner Finishing

We can finish your Veil with either hem and eyelets, a stitched seam, or pole pockets. We also offer a combination of the above finishing if required. The most common finishing is a hem around all edges with eyelets along the top edge, thus creating a Veil drape.

Veil Sizes

We manufacture veil backdrops at any size. Available on 3m wide rolls larger backdrops will contain a stitched seam.

Veil Printing process

Our Veil is printed using the latest printing processes. Digital, Dye-sublimation printing provides deep, vivid colours. The four colour print process means we can print any design at photographic quality.

Printed Veil uses

Veil backdrops for stage

Veil backdrops add depth to any stage show or theatre performance. Layering veil over other veil backdrops or solid backdrops creates a layering 3D effect.

Custom wedding veil backdrop

Popular with wedding planners, printed Veil adds a luxury feel and is perfect for screening intimate areas. Printed Veil is ideal as a backdrop for partygoers. Add fairy lights for extra special effects.

Veil Backdrops for Christmas or Grotto’s

Because of its transparent nature veil compliments Christmas lights with light shining through from behind the face. Adding a veil backdrop with fairy lights in garden centres or grottos adds a sense of festivity to your setting. We can print your Veil with any design in photographic quality, meaning we can do any Christmas scene you require.

Printing Veil for churches

Printed Veil is superb for use inside a Church Altar. Creating a subtle screen when used with low lighting gives a calming and softness which you wouldn’t get from a solid fabric.

Veils for corridors and walkways

Printed Veil is popular for use as side drapes for entrances into a Wedding venue main room. Walking through a corridor with a simple printed veil on the walls’ sides gives an intimate and welcoming feeling. Printed wall veils used in conjunction with small tables with decorations and fairy lights create a grand entrance to any wedding reception.
