How We Make Your Custom Step and Repeat Banners
We have a graphic design team on hand who is eager to help bring your vision for your step and repeat banner to life. Generally, step and repeat backdrops are printed using two high quality logos printed in a repeating pattern – thus the name “step and repeat.” If you have just one logo or even four, we can still design a clear and eye-catching backdrop for photos. We prefer logo files in EPS, PSD and AI formats, as they allow for the most manipulation in size. We can also accept PNG and TIFF files if need be, but be aware that files that are small or low resolution may require that the logos are printed small. Color backgrounds are also available. Feel free to contact with any questions!
Lifespan of a Step and Repeat Wall
Our step and repeat backdrops are printed on high quality dye sublimation fabric that will last for many uses. Fabric is preferable to vinyl in the case of these banners because they allow for wind to pass through, which means you can use the backdrop outdoors. And with UV fade resistant inks, the printing will remain vibrant and colorful even with exposure to the elements. Expected life span for the backdrops is typically between 3-5 years.
Caring for your Step and Repeat Wall
Proper handling, cleaning, and storage will do a lot to extend the life span of your custom step and repeat banner. The dye sublimation fabric is machine washable, and can be put in any standard washing machine on the gentle cycle provided it is not too large. If no washing machine is available, or if your banner is too large, it can be hand-washed in warm soapy water. We recommend hanging the fabric to dry rather than putting it a tumble dryer. If wrinkles emerge, the fabric can be ironed on low heat. Always make sure the fabric is completely dry before it is folded for storage – folding and storing the banner before drying can trap mold and mildew which will deteriorate the images and the fabric.
