What is a step and repeat banner?

The concept of “step and repeat” involves taking your company logo or logos and printing them in a consistent repeating pattern until the backdrop is uniformly covered. Step and Repeat banners serve as excellent tools for promoting your special event or garnering exposure for your company, product, or service during media engagements.

At events requiring red carpets, Step and Repeat banners offer an ideal backdrop for capturing memorable photo opportunities with special guests, while also maximizing exposure. Additionally, step and repeat banners are increasingly popular as backdrops for press conferences and on-location interviews, particularly in the realm of sporting events where they have become a standard fixture, ensuring high visibility throughout.

What is a backdrop banner?

A backdrop is a versatile banner used for various occasions like weddings, birthdays, or corporate events. It sets the ambiance and can feature any image or design to suit the event’s purpose or aesthetic.

Step and Repeat Banner Material

When selecting a step and repeat background, consider the intended application to choose the appropriate material:

  • Premium Matte Blockout Vinyl: Ideal for white or light backgrounds.
  • Premium Blockout Fabric: Great for events where glare from camera flashes is a concern.

At L+L Printers we offer two different vinyl banner material weights. These are 13oz. and 18oz. These numbers indicate the weight of the material per square yard and are priced differently which will be reflected in the cost of your banners. If you are not sure which banner material is for you please contact us and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Finishing Options

All Step and Repeat banners from L+L Printers include the cost of finishing if desired. You can choose to have either no finishing, hemming or Top & Bottom pole pockets. We hem all of our banners in-house. Unlike banner tape or RF welding, hemming is the best and most cost-effective option for the durability of your vinyl banner especially in outdoor applications where windy conditions can pose an issue with wear and tear.

Pole Pockets

Pole pockets are created by folding over extra material that creates a space or pocket to insert a rigid pole for support. The extra material is wrapped around and is stitched or heat welded to the back of the banner. This creates a smooth two to three-inch seam. Pole pockets can be placed at any edge of the banner but are traditionally placed along the top and bottom, but can also be found on either side. Using pole pockets allow for the banner to be more rigid and taut in appearance thus eliminating sagging.  Banners with Pole pockets are especially useful such as free hanging banners from ceilings.
