WHAT IS A STEP AND REPEAT BANNER?


A
Step and Repeat Banner is a backdrop display that has one or more sponsor logos repeated in a step or diagonal alternating pattern.

The purpose of a step and repeat backdrop is to emphasize a brand name, company logo or sports team name during media press conferences, red carpet events and special events. The step and repeat backdrop banner is designed for photo opportunities.

“Step-and-repeat” comes from the photoshop term used for the process of duplicating an object and spacing.

WHICH FINISHING OPTION SHOULD I CHOOSE?

* Pole Pockets
This is the finishing you choose when using telescopic banner stands to hang your banner. Normally, you would choose pole pockets on both Top and Bottom for our adjustable stands. You will need to choose pole pocket on Top Only if you’re planning on using our heavy duty stands.

* Grommets
If you plan on hanging your banners on walls or fences using zip ties, you can choose Grommet finishing as your finishing type. We normally put a grommet hole on each corner, and put additional holes throughout the edges depending on the size of the banner.

* Hem Only
If you do not wish to put any type of finishing on your banner and you simply want stitching around the edges, you can choose Hem Only as your finishing. Please do keep in mind that you will not be able to use banners with hem only finishing with our stands.

* No Finishing
Choose No Finishing option for your banner if you plan on using our pop-up stands. There is no need for any type of finishing if you are using our pop-up stands.

HOW LONG WILL MY BANNER OR BOARD LAST?

Outdoor backdrops generally last 1-3 years. Indoor backdrops can last a very long time, depending on the care taken to preserve them. We recommend that you roll your banner whenever you are keeping it in storage and you can wipe any dust or dirt off with a damp cloth or paper towel.

HOW SHOULD I STORE MY BANNER?

Please be advised that all of our banners are NOT meant to be folded at all times! Folding them will crease and damage the banners. We suggest that you roll up your banners and store them in the tube that we provide for longer lasting quality.

WHAT RESOLUTION SHOULD THE LOGOS BE?

Please send the highest-resolution files you have (preferably vector .eps files).

Any other files are fine as long as the resolution is good.

300 dpi (dots per inch) at 14″ wide is extremely good resolution.
100 dpi at 14″ wide is good resolution.
Any dpi lower than 72 will pixelate and look fuzzy.
