Fabric vs Vinyl step and repeat banners. That is usually on anyone's mind who has not ordered one before. Fabric and Vinyl both have there Pro's and Con's, but we almost always recommend Fabric for step and repeat banners.
Why do we recommend Fabric over vinyl?
• Fabric is wrinkle resistant unlike matte vinyl. That right there is a big reason it is recommended by us more. • Both Fabric and Matte Vinyl photograph well using flash lighting with minimal glare. • Fabric can be easily folded and stored for future use. Did you know a 8'x8' fabric banner can easily fit into a shopping bag? • Removing wrinkles can easily be fixed by applying low heat from a steamer. • Sublimation is used to dye the ink to your tightly woven fabric. Making colors vibrant and profession looking on your step and repeat banner.
• Two feet • Two side poles to support the sides of your backdrop display • Poles to place into the pole pockets of your fabric backdrop • Carry bag to easily move your banner stand • Full color backdrop printed on 100 percent polyester fabric.
Setting up this Step and Repeat banner is rather straight forward and we plan to make a video soon on setting one up soon. Since the backdrop has pole pockets already sewn in, all you need to do is connect the poles. 2-3 poles depending on the size of your step and repeat banner to hold up the backdrop. And Four poles and one foot for each side to vertically hold up the backdrop. This can be set up as well as taken down quickly. And when you are done it stores easily in its convenient carrying bag.
Your banner can fit into the step and repeat banner stand. But, we recommend that you store it in a separate bag. away from direct sunlight. It is suggested to always roll your fabric banner when storing. And be sure that the side with the dye is inside the roll and not facing out. This will store better and last longer.
To wash your banner try first to use just a wet rag, this will help you remove dirt. But if step and repeat banners need care you can place your fabric banner into a washing machine. Just be sure to use the gentle wash cycle and gentle detergent. Do not use heavy detergents or bleach.
To dry, it is advised to hang your back drop banner so that it air drys. When hanging to dry be sure to do so without folding so no wrinkles set in. But if they do you can remove them.
When it comes to removing any wrinkles, just use a hand held steamer on a medium to low setting to remove them.
