WHAT TYPE OF PRINTER IS USED?
HOW TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE DROPS?
PolyPro Paper is water resistant and tear resistant; however, no material is completely indestructible and taking care of your backdrops and floordrops is very important to make sure you get the most use from them. We recommend avoiding placing food on a PolyPro Paper drop. If you plan to use the drop on the floor under ‘hazardous’ situations (i.e. animals, children, cake smashes, etc.) we recommend you use a sheet of clear plexi-glass to protect your drop.
ALWAYS use caution when placing any objects that are not soft on the surface of the floordrops to ensure you don’t scratch the design! Keep in mind that this is a “printed” surface and can be scratched by items and/or props being dragged across the drop. Protective pads on your props will ensure that sharp edges are not rubbing against the drops. Also, always lifting and/or moving your props versus dragging them across the surface of the drop will help ensure your drops will last a long time.
DO NOT use harsh chemicals or abrasive products to clean drop.

If the proof is correct you must notify us that it is approved for printing. If it is not correct, you may request adjustments as necessary. We can not proceed with printing without a written approval.
HOW DO I PLACE A CUSTOM DESIGN ORDER?
Or… if you have something in mind and can’t find it on our site, or are looking for a custom size please email us directly to discuss your order.
HOW SOON WILL I RECEIVE MY ORDER?
Because of the large number of backdrops available on our website, it would be virtually impossible to maintain inventory that would be available for immediate shipping. That is why each order is custom printed.

For Backdrops larger than 60″ wide and Step & Repeat Media Walls, please allow between 6 to 8 business days for your order to be processed and ready for shipping.
