You bought a digital file or took a photo you wish to make into a backdrop, lets print it out.
Printing at home will not work!
Unless you have a little printing studio and a great printer, it’s better not to try printing your backdrop at home. If you need a very small backdrop, you can print it onto a matt sheet of photography paper. Scale the pattern your liking, otherwise the pattern might be to tiny.
Here are some examples of materials you can print backdrops on:
You can find a service online, that will print your backdrop to your liking. Depending on your budget you can print it onto paper, vinyl, tarp, styrofoam, wood, glass.
The cheapest for me is the wallpaper print. There are different papers and finishes to choose from. Vinyl and tarp are water resistant and are versatile in use.
If you are not sure what material to print your backdrop on, you may ask the online store staff to send you some small material samples if possible. If not, order a couple small backdrops first before ordering bigger ones. Small, even tiny backdrops can be useful for macro photography and close-up shots.
