Nothing is more crucial for a new band than getting their name in front of new people. As a result, selecting the ideal printed stage backdrop or band banner is more than a one-time buy.

The correct band banner can lend an impression of professionalism while also promoting your brand and attracting new fans at every show.

The last thing you want if you’re a band visiting different venues every week is for your signs to fail you. Sure, playing to new fans is exciting, but if they can’t remember your name, you won’t see them again.

Over time, low-cost event banners or PVC banners can rip or deteriorate in quality, affecting your image. Fabric band banners, background banners, custom backdrops, and scrims roll up and fold away quickly, ready to be used again.

This product’s Fire Certificate is unique in the market because Banner World test their fabrics for flame retardancy after printing and finishing. Many venue safety authorities now refuse to accept a generic fire safety certificate that only covers the base fabric. These backdrops have been rigorously tested to meet or exceed BS5867-2: 2008: Type B.

Fabric Band Scrims are a Greener Alternative to PVC Banners

Fabric banners are more environmentally friendly than PVC banners, which are typically discarded in landfills.

Banner World also construct band banners and stage scrims out of conventional PVC or Mesh banner material at a lower cost. Larger cheap band banners are more harder to pack away, despite the lower initial cost. They also take up more storage space and aren’t as attractive for as long.

Banner World Blockout Band Backdrops are made from the same high-quality material as their Premium Backdrops, but with a coating of black resin on the back to block out all light.

Satin backdrops provide a touch of sparkle and shine.

Band Backdrop Design Guide

Make sure your measurements are right.

Please scale your artwork to the final printed band banner’s proportions. A printed backdrop does not require any bleed on the artwork. You can resize your artwork if necessary.

Make sure your CMYK colour settings are right.

Please ensure that your colour settings are set to CMYK. Backdrop banner printers use cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks in a full-colour dye-sublimation printing technique. Files that are provided to be used with an RGB configuration will be automatically updated. The colours on your printed background may appear weak and faded out as a result of this. Before printing, Banner World double-check for this and contact you if necessary.

Eyelet placement on your Printed Band Banners

Please leave a clear area of approximately 50mm inside the banner’s edge. The background colour and photos are both acceptable. Please keep text, small print, and logos as far away from the edges as possible. These objects may be obscured by the eyelets. Unless otherwise specified, hems and eyelets will be added. The use of only eyelets (without the hem) is not recommended because the material may rip.
Unless otherwise noted, eyelets are spaced approximately every 500mm. Eyelets are normally evenly spaced, but sizes of banners may vary slightly.

Band Banners with Pole Pockets

If necessary, Banner World may add pole pockets to your band banners. Please double-check that your artwork meets the measurements of the size you desire. Standard scaffold tubes require a 150mm flat pocket size in order to fit comfortably and without putting too much strain on the pocket seam. Text or critical information should not be included in solid colour/background graphics or patterns.

Principles of Band Banner Design

It’s crucial to think about viewing distances while designing a band banner. Always try to make your artwork as impactful as possible. Contrasting colours will give your banner a lot more oomph than subtle colours.

A single band logo is usually appropriate for a band backdrop or a step-and-repeat design.

Take into account the size of your text. Larger text is easier to read from a distance. Use upper and lower case letters. Instead of all caps, road signs are written in upper and lower case. Your eyes will subconsciously read above and lower (sentence case). Font style… Fonts that are less ornate, stripy, or script function well. Look at the backdrops for the big acts; they usually merely have the band’s name on them.

It’s not a good idea to cram as much information as possible onto your band backdrop banner. Less is more in this case. Keep in mind to use clear regions of space and to offer your design breathing room. The best backdrops are always straightforward and uncomplicated.

Consider incorporating a QR Code into your design that links to your band’s website or social media page.
