Assemble Your Step and Repeat Banner

Are you concerned about the assembly of the banner and the stand of your event? Setting up a retractable banner and simple stand options, such as a retractable stand with 3-4 poles, is easier than you think. It’s simple to assemble by one person. This means minimal setup time, especially with retractable banners.

  • Make sure your base stand units are on level and stable ground. If necessary, stabilize the backdrop stand units with a piece of professional pipe or a piece of PVC pipe.
  • Connect the top and bottom horizontal bars to the vinyl banner. The two sets of vertical poles should be the same length. This is  easy since step and repeat display units are often shipped with telescopic poles. These poles are usually adjustable.
  • Bend the base on the telescopic pole using the screw. Stretch the vertical posts. Connect them together using the included grommet pieces if necessary.
  • Turn the horizontal poles to a length a bit longer than the length of the banner material. Attach the upper horizontal vertical pole in the pole pocket at the top of the banner.
  • Secure the top horizontal pole to the vertical posts with a screw button. Make sure the vertical poles line up with the base stands.
  • Make sure to make the middle support pole or telescopic support pole even with the main horizontal and vertical poles. This includes telescopic side poles (for larger systems).
  • Unroll and stretch out the vinyl backdrop or fabric banner and smooth banners out. Then place the horizontal posts at the bottom of the banner. Insert the horizontal post into the bottom pocket of the banner.
  • Attach the lower horizontal post to the vertical posts using the screw button. This is the same as previously done for the lower part to the step and repeat banner stand.

That’s it! Now your beautiful graphic logo wall is ready to be  consumed. Your red carpet event attendees will have fun photo opportunities. They’ll spend hours in front of your media wall.

Portability

 

To keep your banner and reuse it for another upcoming red carpet event, store and transport it safely. Be careful not to fold your display, but to roll it up. To keep your banner in good condition, it is best to have a convenient carry bag. Even if you plan to take your fabric step banner through train stations and airports. You want to make sure to get the display intact from point A to point B.

 

Quick changes for your background

 

Now that your matte vinyl banner is up, there are some things you can do to improve the performance of your screen:

  • Check that your lighting is even. The best is to get a balance between your lighting as a speaker and your screen lighting.
  • Don’t wear clothes the same color as your background.
  • Make sure the material doesn’t have wrinkles or contains any reflective material. Don’t use an extravagant, unprofessional image. Instead, use a real background. That way it will bring out the beauty of the people and the legitimacy of the message.
  • Avoid using a green screen as a background for a video. This is only possible if you have a large studio and budget, as is the case with Hollywood film productions. Otherwise, you will get a strange and disproportionate background.

Webarounds for your IT needs

The Webaround solution is interesting if you have to sit at your desk for your video calls. If you want to make sure that the screen fills your camera, get the rectangular version. This is also called the Wide Shot Webaround. For people who use a standing desk or want a little more flexibility, opt for a foldable stand. You’ll need a light stand and a clip to make it work.

Go with a non-glare fabric

Avoid choosing a glossy material, as this would make the signs shine. This will produce a glare that is not conducive to photos. Choose matte finish banners instead of glossy ones. As much as possible, choose a non-reflective fabric. These materials are a little more expensive than vinyl step and repeat banners. But they do not cause glare, reflections or overexposure of logos when lit a little too much.

Tips For Implementing Paper Backgrounds

For those who are considering using a wide variety of paper backgrounds, a pulley system can be used. This will allow you to mount several papers at the same time. To do so, you can choose larger paper sizes, cut it to the height that fits your façade and mount the papers on the support. Many sizes are possible here, even the mega format. This is an effective solution for professional photography studios.

Choosing the Right Repeat Backdrop

When you design your vinyl banners, it’s important to make sure that you use contrasted colors. Make sure they’re balanced and well-chosen so that they appear clearly on the pictures. You’ll also want them to be visible and easily spotted by your audience.
