Band Banners and Backdrops

Band Banner Types

Band banners and backdrops are essential for any band or artist looking to make a lasting impression on their audience. Band banners have various names, including custom band backdrops, band stage scrims, and vinyl banners, although we don’t recommend using a vinyl banner for a band backdrop. Display polyester is another popular choice for its durability and vibrant colours. These banners can come in all heights and widths and are used in various settings, including concerts, clubs, pubs, and festivals, and we print backdrops to your exact dimensions and specifications.

Custom Band Backdrops

We understand that, as musicians and artists, you want to create a unique experience for your audience. That’s where custom band backdrops and band scrims come in. Whether you’re a rock band, a DJ, or a solo artist, the right backdrop can elevate your performance and showcase your individuality. Our online designer for band backdrops allows you to design band backdrops online, making it easy to create a custom backdrop that reflects your band’s style.

When choosing a custom band backdrop, consider the following factors: venue size, event type, and desired effect. For larger events like festivals, a larger backdrop might be appropriate to fill the stage space and make an impact. For smaller venues like pubs or clubs, a more compact, high-resolution design might be better suited. Regardless of the size and setting, custom backdrops for bands should be eye-catching and memorable, helping you stand out from the crowd.

With our easy online design tools and a wide variety of customization options, you can create a band backdrop that strikes the perfect balance between art and functionality. Once your design is complete, simply upload your files and choose from our range of custom sizes to ensure a perfect fit for your stage.

In addition to custom band backdrops, we also offer band scrims, a term for smaller backdrops, and freestanding banners perfect for filling gaps on stage or flanking a larger backdrop. These scrims can also be used as speaker covers or microphone stands, adding a layer of branding and personalization to your performance.

Investing in band banners and backdrops customized for your band’ll create a professional image and lasting impression that will keep fans talking long after the show ends.

Material and Quality

As a provider of band banners and band backdrops, we understand the importance of quality materials for your custom band backdrop. This section will discuss the materials we use for our backdrops and why we chose them over other options.

Display Polyester

Our most popular material for backdrops is display polyester which we use on our standard premium band backdrop product. We utilise Display Polyester for our backdrops for bands due to its excellent performance and durability. This fabric is lightweight yet strong and resistant to wear, making it perfect for frequent use at events like concerts, festivals, or clubs. Polyester also has a slight stretch, which allows for easy setup and helps eliminate wrinkles for a clean and professional appearance. Besides, Display Polyester is foldable and easy to transport, making it an ideal choice for bands that need to travel between gigs.

Light stop – Blockout band backdrops

Blackback Blockout Fabric is a perfect choice for band backdrops as it prevents light from coming through. This water-repellent fabric has a black backing that blocks light from the rear and prevents light show-through like a blackout curtain. Additionally, the non-reflective finish of this 240gsm flexible fabric makes it an excellent choice for printed blackout backdrops. The dye-sublimation printing process produces deep, vivid, and vibrant colours that look fantastic on stage. Overall, Blackback Blockout Fabric is a great option for band backdrops.

Satin band backdrops

Satin fabric is another great option for band backdrops. Satin is a weave that gives the fabric its smooth and shiny texture, which looks like a silk backdrop. Satin backdrops are ideal for adding a touch of elegance to any stage. The fabric’s shiny surface reflects light beautifully, creating a luxurious and glamorous look that’s perfect for concerts, weddings, and other special events. Satin backdrops are also relatively lightweight, making them easy to transport and set up. They can be customised with dye-sublimation printing, allowing for a wide range of design possibilities. Overall, satin band backdrops are a great choice for those looking to add a touch of sophistication and glamour to their stage setup.

Anti-Crease Band Backdrops

Anti-crease or crease-free band backdrops are a popular choice for those who want to avoid the hassle of ironing or steaming out wrinkles before each use. Made from a stretch polyester material that features a small percentage of lycra-type material in the weave. This combination creates a fabric that is both durable and flexible, making it easy to stretch and hang without causing creases or wrinkles. The lycra-type material also helps the fabric bounce back into shape if it gets stretched or pulled during use, ensuring that the backdrop always looks smooth and wrinkle-free. Anti-crease or crease-free backdrops are available custom printed to your design, making them a versatile and practical choice.

Airmesh Band Backdrops

Air mesh polyester band backdrops are an excellent choice for large outdoor stage events. This material is specially designed to allow air and sound to flow through, making it ideal for use in windy or high-wind areas. The 70/30 weave of air mesh polyester means that 70% of the material is solid, while the remaining 30% comprises small holes that allow air and sound to pass through. This feature makes air mesh polyester band backdrops perfect for use in front of large speaker stacks or other sound-emitting devices on stage, as it won’t block the sound. Air mesh polyester is also a rugged and durable material that won’t rip or tear at the edges, making it ideal for use in outdoor environments. Additionally, it is weather-resistant and can withstand the elements for years, making it a great investment for bands and event planners who need a reliable and long-lasting backdrop solution for their outdoor events.

Vinyl Banners are not the solution for band backdrops

Although vinyl banners are often seen in various settings, we firmly believe they are not the best solution for band backdrops. Vinyl material can be heavy and cumbersome, making it difficult to fold and transport between venues. It may also be prone to creasing and wrinkling during transportation or storage, which is unsuitable for a polished and professional stage appearance.

We exclusively print our band backdrops on fabric materials like Display Polyester. By choosing fabric, we ensure that our band backdrops are lightweight, foldable, and easy to transport, offering convenience and superior quality for every artist, DJ, and club where they’re displayed.

Through our online designer for band backdrops, you can create a custom backdrop design that perfectly represents your band or event. From rock bands to club DJs and concert venues, our high-resolution, top-quality fabric backdrops will make your music and performances even more memorable.

Band Stage Presentation

Band Scrims

We understand the importance of high-quality band stage presentations when showcasing our band and elevating our performances. Band banners and custom band backdrops are essential in capturing the audience’s attention and solidifying our brand identity. Our band scrims are made of Display polyester, ensuring a lightweight and durable solution that can be easily transported to various gigs and events.

One primary use of a band scrim is to provide a backdrop for artists during live events such as concerts, clubs, or festivals. We recommend using polyester banners, specifically designed for bands, to withstand various weather conditions for indoor and outdoor performances.

Backdrop Ideas

As a rock band, we need an eye-catching and versatile backdrop to represent our unique sound, style, and energy. We always explore different backdrop ideas before selecting the most suitable design for our stage setup. To create custom band backdrops, we leverage online designer tools for band backdrops, which allow us to experiment with various graphics, sizes, and custom dimensions to achieve the desired effect.

We take into consideration the height and width of the backdrop, ensuring that it complements the venue’s available space. Additionally, it should accentuate the band’s stage setup, including essential elements like speakers, microphones, and lighting. We aim to create a visually engaging experience for our fans while ensuring the selected design reflects the band’s style and personality.

In conclusion, band backdrops and stage scrims are valuable assets in our quest to provide engaging and memorable performances. From festivals to pubs and clubs, these customisable visuals enhance our band’s stage presence and help create a positive, lasting impression on audiences. Using the right materials and investing in well-thought-out designs ensures our band’s image and professionalism are apparent during every performance.

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

Buying Guide »

Band Banners are a hugely popular product at Banner World. Having now produced Band Backdrops for over 8 years and with a couple of our managers being involved in local bands, we have a fair bit of experience to draw on.

We print and manufacture band and stage banners and backdrops to any size and to any finishing specification. We also have a range of materials and band backdrop fabrics available.

By far the best material for a normal Band Banner is Polyester 210gsm. Whilst cheaper PVC Banner material is heavy and difficult to pack, store and transport, Polyester 210gsm is lightweight and can be packed and folded very small – crease and ruck free. Moreover, the dye-sublimation print technology used on fabrics produces fabulous rich and vibrant colours. Fabric is also much easier to add custom effects like glitter or rhinestones to.

Lighting »

As standard our banners and backdrops are non-reflective, making them ideal under stage lighting conditions. Band photographers love them!

Our standard Band Backdrop fabric is 210gsm Polyester. This is ideal when used against a wall or black backcloth. Any strong light behind this type of banner will show through.

Blackback Pro fabric has a black resin backing which will block out any light from behind. Specify this fabric if you may be using the banner outdoors or when lighting behind the banner needs to be blocked out.

Design Guide for Band Backdrop Printing »

The most effective band backdrops are simple! Less is more! A simple design with just your band name or logo on a dark background is ideal.

This will let you audience know exactly who you are!

Most often, the backdrop will be fitted at the back of the stage, so ensure that the name or logo is visible whilst the band are playing. Having the name or logo in the top half of the backdrop is therefore vital.

If your band name or logo is easily visible and readable, you won’t need to worry about adding a phone number, web address or social media details.
