Photo Booth backdrops are everywhere. From vinyl backdrops to stretch fabric backdrops, a quick search online and you’ve got an endless number of possibilities to choose from. But how do you know which one is right for you and more importantly, how will it perform for your event? At Stretch Shapes, we understand the challenges and faults of many of the photo booth backdrops on the current market. So when we decided to launch our own version of one, we knew exactly what we needed to do to make the perfect kit for your next event.
Photo Booth Frame Kit
First thing we needed to do was incorporate a frame that was not flimsy, was easy to set up, portable and strong enough to hold up to the elements of a live event. There are a lot of plastic, expandable frame systems out there that come in at a relatively low price-point and work with stretch fabric. The problem is, they are too light and need extra support to stay put. Also, they are all one piece, so if by chance you break one of the tabs (which happens often), you’re stuck having to replace the entire frame. After careful consideration, we were determined to come up with a better solution.
What we came up with was a pipe and base system that meets all our requirements.
• Sturdy 1-1/2” aluminum tube frames for strength and durability – check
• Heavy duty 18”x 18” baseplates to ensure your photo booth stays where you want it – check
• Folds up small and easily transportable – check
• Can be set up in minutes – check
Photo Booth Stretch Fabric
Now that we knew we had a frame in place, it was time to focus in on what we specialize in the most – stretch fabric. For years, we’ve been America’s leader in stretch fabric solutions for live events. Now, more than ever, event producers need décor solutions that are easy to setup, affordable and can meet their event’s needs.
Stretch fabric or tension fabric as it is also referred to, meets all these needs, when done correctly. For safety and event certifications, we only use Trapeze Plus stretch fabric for our Photo Booths. This fabric is inherently flame retardant (IFR) and passes NFPA 701, CSFM Title 19 and ASTM E84 standards, even after repeated machine washing.
Installing your stretch fabric photo booth backdrop is just as easy as setting up the frame. Using our perfected pillowcase style, your photo booth scrim simply slides over the frame and zips into place along the bottom support bar. After install, the zipper is discretely hidden underneath the bar. In the end, you have a seamless and wrinkle free backdrop for your event.
Total installation time should take you no more than 3-5 minutes total. That’s including unpacking the frame from the included case that Stretch Shapes provides.
Dye Sublimation Printing
Although many of our stock 16 colors make for an excellent choice as a backdrop or green screen, our dye sublimation printing option allows you to customize your photo booth to anything you like. Our state-of-the-art printers produce photo realistic quality prints and can Pantone color match if required. With our printing option, you’re able to create premium media walls, trade show backdrops, press conference backdrops, event walls, step and repeat walls and advertising backdrops.
Our quick turn-around times ensure your backdrop is in-hand for your event. Currently, we offer two stock sizes including, our 8’x 8’ photo booth backdrop and 10’x’8’ photo booth backdrop.
