"We love doing business with Backdrops by Charles Stewart. They are always beautiful, Greg in the office is great, and it is easy pick up and drop off because we are local, but I know they ship too. We just did Peter Pan and the backdrop was perfect!"

"Charles H. Stewart is definitely one of our favorite backdrop companies to rent from! Very responsive, quick shipping, and wonderful quality. Working in television, we often have schedule changes and need things last minute and the people at CHS always work hard to make sure our needs are met. The only tricky part is their hours have shortened due to the pandemic/ However, even when we sent an email inquiry after hours, it was responded to promptly. Thank you for everything!"
