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.

Absolutely delighted with the backdrop I ordered from Bannerworld! The fabric quality is outstanding. Far better than I could ever have hoped for. Print quality is equally superb, showing bright, clear colours, and all edging is finished to the highest standard.

When I rolled this out at our recent gig, the reaction from band members and everyone in the venue was brilliant to see. Definitely going to be an asset to our band.

Honestly can’t recommend this company highly enough. Dispatch time was three days after I’d uploaded the file, so delivered really quickly too.

I purchased three large backdrops for our village pantomime from Banner World. I had considered a few other businesses, but went with these guys as they were helpful from the start, providing us with free samples of the fabrics and printing which other companies don't always do. They were very quick to answer emails and very helpful with it too.

Delivery was exactly when they said it would be, and they were very accommodating to our needs. I was nervous once the order was made as, while very reasonably priced, our order was a significant sum of money. I needn't have worried. The quality was fantastic, all our requests had been carried out exactly as asked for and they looked fabulous on stage. Lots of great comments were made by audience members.

I'm actually writing this review almost a year after our purchase, and can confirm not only is the quality great, they last well over time also.

We're now planning to purchase three more for our next show.

Ordered a banner for my son's band. Great experience. John made us aware that our image was not good enough quality so we had a chance to re-do it. It was delivered today and the boys are made up! Great quality and image.

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.
