What are Custom Band Backdrops?
Custom band backdrops are the banners that bands often place behind their performance to feature their logo or band name. Bands often use these banner displays to increase their brand awareness. Use these banners to imprint the memory of your logo into the minds of all your attendees.
What Material are your Custom Band Backdrop Banners Made of?
We offer five different options for your custom band backdrop’s material. Our most commonly used material is our 13 oz vinyl material. 13 oz vinyl is durable and the material naturally makes colors pop which presents your image with a bright, shiny appearance. This 13 oz vinyl material comes with a gloss or matte finish.
We also have a heavy duty 18 oz vinyl material. This material is heavier and more durable, so it is best used outdoors with limited wind. For heavier wind, our mesh material would be ideal to use. The mesh material has holes placed throughout the banner so that air may pass through, while the image is still visible and vibrant so it may be eye-catching enough. The last material we offer is made of fabric. Fabric material gives a softer look to your banner, and it will flow and flap about in the wind. So if you’re looking for more of a regal look, fabric material should work for you.
5 Reasons to bring a Custom Band Backdrop Banner to your next Venue
- Increase Brand Awareness
If your band is putting on a show, what do you suppose most of the crowd is doing? Dancing, shouting, drinking; there really is a lot of stimulus for the crowd. Most bands want their attendees to remember them, so they use band backdrops to display their logo or band name to the crowd all night.
Bring Together the Stage
Somewhere to put your Logo
A logo is something that symbolizes your band and what your band believes in. If you have a long band name, or just want your banner design to be simpler, then a logo will be much better than just displaying your band’s name.

Installation & Product Care FAQs
How should custom band backdrops be hung?
Your band’s banner can have hems and grommets, as well as pole pockets. If you choose the hems and grommets option, we recommend installing ball bungees on ALL grommets offered. As a result, the pressure will be distributed evenly, resulting in a clean, wrinkle-free banner.
Another way to hang is with our pole pockets. If you choose pole pockets, your banner's finished size will not be affected. 2", 3", or 4" pole pockets are available. We don't advocate placing any text or images inside 3 inches of the banner's edge while using pole pockets.
3 Types of Bands that can make good use of Backdrop Banners
- Rock Bands
- Rock Bands are the best type of band to use band backdrops. With their grand entrances and wild performances, rockstars definitely benefit from having a custom designed banner supporting them from behind.
- DJ’s are the hottest new thing in the music industry. If you’re just an up and coming artist, or if you’re an international disk jockey sensation, a backdrop will come in handy.
- Country Bands
- Country Bands have a similar style to rock bands, but they may have a little bit more hay bales. So, having a custom banner with your logo or band name on it will help you get your name recognized.
How do I clean my banner?
Your backdrop banner might require occasional cleaning. If you are going to wash your banner, use lukewarm water. You can add dish soap to the water. Avoid using abrasive cleaning materials like power washers and brushes. You should only use soft towels to avoid scratching the banner and ruining the prints.
How do I properly store my vinyl banner?
When your custom backdrop banner is not being used, make sure that you roll the banner up. Keep the printed side out when you roll the banner to protect the inks. To prevent the banner from bending, you should keep the box it was shipped in and store it in there. You should also keep your banner out of extreme heat. Avoid windows or other direct sunlight.
How do I remove wrinkles from my banner?
After receiving your backdrop banner, you may notice it has some creases or wrinkles. This is due to it being rolled up and stored for shipping. If you wish to get rid of these unsightly wrinkles from your banner, we recommend two options.
The first and least hands-on approach is to simply unroll your vinyl banners and place them in the hot sun for a few hours and the wrinkles should come out.
The second option is more of a hands-on approach, and we recommend using a clothing steamer with a refillable water tank. Simply just use the steamer much like you would with a piece of clothing and this steamer should take the wrinkles right out!
