Benefits of Renting & Customizing Backdrops

As people gather for many reasons, the visual elements of the room or the function are everything. The environment of your event is a tell-tale sign that will dictate how your guests will receive the production or presentation.

A backdrop for a play, musical, recital, or special event is important to the success of the event. It’s the design that everyone’s eyes are fixated upon. Much thought goes into planning sets, backdrops, and backgrounds because if the design doesn’t hold the attention of the crowd, then your event or show can be compromised.

The Visual Experience

Background colors, set design, and backdrop detail all play a huge role in the visual experience received by your crowd. When you know what you want for your creative detail and visuals, you can rent a backdrop that works perfectly for you. Go with something busy, intricate, and detailed, or color based, digitally designed, or simple.

Deciding on a Backdrop: Tips for Decision Making

When you’re considering renting a backdrop, you may be overwhelmed with the choices. The colors, the designs, and the intricate detail of each backdrop is beautiful in each of their own ways. As you’re scrolling our inventory, you may be stuck between a few different backdrops, and not know which to choose for your production or event. Don’t worry, we put together a guide of tips for decision making when it comes to backdrops. There are a few things you’ll want to consider when planning and staging your production and set design. Read this blog for everything to know when it comes to deciding on the perfect backdrop.

Matching Your Production’s Theme With The Backdrop

Finding a backdrop that matches your theme is the most important part of deciding. When you know the theme of your show, be sure the backdrops you have your eye on are all appropriate in color, style, and design. For example, if you’re producing a show like 42nd Street, you’ll want to consider backdrops with cityscapes, Broadway streets, bright flashy colors, skylines, black and white, city lights, and streets.

How To Ensure Backdrops Will Fit Your Space

Each backdrop by Charles H. Stewart listed in our inventory includes the size of the backdrop on the webpage. All of our backdrops come with grommets and tie lines spaced approximately 12-14 inches apart. Be sure the backdrops you’re considering will fit your space and your stage. Take measurements and have an idea of where you’re going to hang the backdrop.

Considering the Lighting and Elements of Your Stage

When choosing your backdrop, consider the level of lighting available during your event or production. Will there be professional lighting operated? Remember that lighting requirements are different for all color combinations, and your lighting technician can have a dramatic impact on your presentation. With hand-painted backdrops, striking and unique textures, you’ll want to position them best for everyone to see clearly. The positioning of your audience and elements of your stage will help you decide what backdrop is right for your event or production.

 

A backdrop can be the final element that brings your theatrical production, dance recital or event to life. They set your stage and provide a visual impact that makes your presentation truly unforgettable. With a beautiful appearance and a cost-effect approach to set design, Backdrops by Charles H. Stewart has just what you need.
