New Poly Paper Backdrops!

As we cater to photographers serving all niches and markets, beginner to advanced, we also strive to provide as wide of material and size options to fit any studio’s needs.

Backdrop Express, a leading online retailer of photography backdrops and props, has expanded their material options available for their large computer printed backdrop line.

Poly Paper is a popular backdrop material manufactured as a synthetic coated paper. It's durable, water-resistant and very difficult to tear. Its matte finish provides a smooth surface that eliminates glare from lighting. Poly Paper is stored rolled, offering a completely seamless and smooth surface that doesn’t require any preparation or steaming before setting up. Even after multiple uses, this strong material will not wrinkle or wave, if stored in dry conditions. Poly Paper is the recommended choice for photographers looking to stock up on various unique backdrop designs, as its low prices start at just $49.95.

Vinyl is another common studio backdrop material, with its main advantages being its durability and heavy weight. It is water-resistant and is very easy to clean if spills or messes occur during a photo session. Vinyl also is produced with a matte finish to help eliminate glare from harsh lighting. Its smooth surface allows for a completely wrinkle-free, low-maintenance portrait background. Prices start at $69.95 for this thick and long-lasting vinyl. Sizes include 4’x5’, 5’x6’ and 5’x9’ for both new materials.

Poly Paper and Vinyl accompany a lightweight polyester weave fabric, a heavyweight poly/cotton fabric and a thick floor mat as viable options for customers to shop from for their computer printed backdrop needs, each with unique advantages. Poly Paper is ideal for special events as it displays superior color and image definition. Fabric is great for traveling photographers, as it folds up and can fit into small storage spaces. Vinyl is recommended for high-traffic studios, as vinyl will last in great condition for years if proper care is given. The thick polyester floor mat is best used as a floordrop because it can easily withstand multiple subjects walking on it without wearing down, although the Poly Paper and vinyl are suitable for floor use as well if taped down on a hard, flat surface.

“Custom printing backdrops allows for an infinite amount of creative designs to be offered. As we cater to photographers serving all niches and markets, beginner to advanced, we also strive to provide as wide of material and size options to fit any studio’s needs.” said Operations Manager, Christine Garcia.
