Stage & Theatre Graphics

Stage & Theatre backdrop specialists

Theatres and live event venues require specialist signage and display solutions for short-run and long-run productions. We offer a wide range of superb range of theatre backdrops which include drapes, stage curtains, stage backdrops and portable advertising and branding products.

Superior fabrics for backdrops

Banner World creates printed stage backdrops from the finest, high-quality flame retardant fabrics. We print using dye-sublimation for full colour, vibrant results. Our stage and theatre backdrops are washable and easily stored between performances.

Great Backdrops for Photography and Film

Our soft fabric backdrops are ideal for photography and film. We have supplied many to red carpet events including the BBC Awards. Polyester fabric is easy to light without glare or unwanted flash effects.

Stage and Theatre backdrops at any Size

Our giant machines print on fabric rolls up to 3.2m wide. Large backdrops are seamed together in panels. Our large print machines mean that we can make our printed stage backdrops at any size for any venue. We have supplied backdrops to some of the worlds largest stage names, including Universal Music, and we ship our backdrops around the globe.

Full-colour stage backdrop printing

We print all our custom theatre backdrops in superior full colour. Using a full-colour CMYK dye-sublimation process enables us to produce stage backdrops with any design. Our backdrop printers allow us to print your design at photographic quality, which means we can print any full-colour designs onto our fabrics.

Blockout stage backdrop fabrics

We offer a blackout stage banner option. Our blackout fabric stops any unwanted light from passing through your backdrop. Our block out fabric has a black resin liner on the reverse of the banner which prevents any unwanted light from showing through the printed backcloth. A block out material means that any light from behind the banner wouldn’t shine through the face. 

We ship printed backdrops worldwide

If you require a printed stage backdrop and are not sure about the shipping costs, then please contact us for a quote. For worldwide shipping orders, we would need to know the item required, size and quantity along with your shipping address. Once we have this information, we can then send you a quotation.

Custom stage backdrop printing

We print from your print-ready artwork, allowing you to order bespoke and customised backdrops to suit your requirements. Stock Photo libraries such as the Adobe Stock Library contain thousands of suitably high-resolution backgrounds for you to incorporate into your designs.

Promotional Banners and Posters

Giant Banners and Lamp Post Signage can effectively promote your events around the local area, along with posters, flags and window graphics.

For interior use, we provide posters and displays along with a vast range of fire-retardant soft signage such as theatre curtains, stage backdrops, theatre drapes and even seating covers.


The type of clients regularly ordering our backdrops is a testament to the quality of the product. The BBC, MailChimp, ITV, Universal Studios, Rolls-Royce, Netflix, Amazon, The NHS, Jack Daniels and Southern Africa Hotels, to name but a few.

Frequently Asked Questions »

What is a Stage Backdrop?

A Stage Backdrop is usually always made from a flame retardant fabric and serves to provide scenery or a backdrop image to the back of a stage. Typically they will be stitch seamed and have a row of eyelets or grommets across the top for hanging. Our Stage backdrops are digitally printed.

What Material is used for Backdrops?

A flame retardant fabric is always used. Fabric thicknesses are usually between 50gsm (Veil) up to 240gsm (Blockout fabric). Backdrop fabrics can be washed if necessary and rolled or folded for ease of storage.

How are Stage Backdrops Printed?

Our Backdrops are printed using digital dye-sublimation print machines, on rolls up to 5 metres wide. Dy-sublimation printing offers a wide colour gamut and deep, vibrant colours essential for stage presence.

How is Artwork prepared for Stage Backdrops?

Digital artwork will normally be designed using industry standard software such as Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. Files are then sent to us as print-ready PDF’s.
