Priority #1 for any live stage performance. Custom stage backdrops for live events, music, and theatre productions are a key component for visually engaging your audience, making your performance more memorable, and “sharable” for fans and spectators on social media.
Any size. Any venue. Our 70/30 vinyl mesh and custom fabric stage backdrops are designed for long term use, worry-free portability and storage. After 35-plus years in the industry, we’ve worked with some of America’s most popular live stage concerts and theater productions. We know what makes a great stage banner and deliver the most complete selection of custom backdrop styles and options in the industry.
Thank you for a great job on the Austrian drape. It looks great hanging and it packs nicely when retracted. Love it!
Generally speaking, fabric backdrops are preferred by traveling indoor theater groups, corporate events, and tradeshow organizers looking to create the most stunning visual, stage effects and settings. Fabric backdrops deliver the most vibrant colors while also resist wrinkles when folded for transport between venues.
Choose our dye-sublimated block-out knit fabric for applications that require an opaque banner to address direct lighting issues and combat glaring caused by flash photography. For stages using backlit LED/fluorescent effects, consider our backlit knit fabric, a lightweight material specially designed to make colors and graphic look incredible when illuminated.
If you’re entertaining at big outdoor events, 70/30 blow-through vinyl mesh (AdMesh™ 70%) delivers a perfect balance of just enough material to allow your art and graphics to be clearly visible and still allow wind and sound to flow though. Weighing roughly 4-ounce per square yard, vinyl mesh is lighter than fabric yet still rugged and durable for touring bands, festivals, theater groups, and multi-city convention and tradeshow organizers.
Recommended for most mobile and outdoor stage use, 70/30 blow-through vinyl mesh (AdMesh 70%) is our most popular stage backdrop material. The “70/30” weave means that for every square inch of backdrop material, 70-percent is material and 30-percent are holes that allow wind and sound to pass through.
By making it less likely that your backdrop will act like a sail in unpredictable weather, using blow-through vinyl mesh rather than fabric or solid vinyl reduces the load on lighting and stage truss structures in windy, outdoor environments.
By finishing with grommets and reinforced hems, Britten delivers all the necessary finishing options to ensure your 70/30 blow-through vinyl mesh backdrops hang tough in the worst conditions. But for super windy venues, going to an even lower 30/70 blow-through vinyl mesh (AdMesh™ 30%) will further eliminate the chance that your backdrop will act like a sail that could damage or even collapse your stage.
For speaker towers that deliver the cleanest audio, 30/70 blow-through vinyl mesh is a great choice that is also considerably lighter making it easier to transport. The only drawback to 30/70 vinyl mesh is that your graphics and imagery will be slightly less visible due to the higher ratio of holes to solid material.
