Design tips for custom tension fabric backdrops

Best Visual Design Tips when Planning Your Stretch Fabric Backdrop

A well-designed banner backwall will bring your trade show booth to life. Follow these tips to make the most of the advertising space at your next promotional event.

  • Focus attention on just one key message or logo on each backdrop, and consider the viewers’ eye-level when placing design elements.
  • Limit text to the most essential words, and keep the number of graphic styles and fonts to a minimum for a professional look.
  • Take advantage of our vibrant full-color dye sublimation printing by using high-resolution graphic files. Upload vector logos, if available, to allow for scaling up to suit the backdrop size.
  • Plan fixtures and furniture that will be placed in front of the banner to decide where graphics will be best viewed.

Assembly Required: Quick Tips for Efficiently Building Your Portable Tension Fabric Backdrop

It’s quick and easy to transport and set up these trade show displays. The frame features a hollow aluminum tubing design, making the unit both manageable and sturdy.

  • Lay out all frame sections on a clean floor and line up the numbered pieces. The snap-button style assembly means no extra tools are required.
  • Leave feet off to secure the tension fabric. Slip the graphic over the frame top and pull toward the base before closing the zipper. Then attach the weighted feet and stand the wall upright.
