Q. Are you backdrops safe for use with children and also for food photography?
A. Yes! We print all our backdrops using eco-friendly inks which are lead-free and nickel-free, so you can rest easy knowing that there are no harmful carcinogens touching your littles ones or your food!
Q. Can I use my backdrop for a Cake Smash?
A. Our vinyl backdrops are perfect for birthday Cake Smash pictures and newborns! So dont worry about the mess. Just take a damp cloth with water and/or a gentle cleaner (like soap) and wipe clean straight after your photo shoot. Easy!
We advise cleaning the backdrop as soon as your photo shoot is over, as it may stain if icing or food is left on it for a prolonged period.
Always test the icing on a small area near the edge of the backdrop before using all over to ensure that it does not leave behind any colour, as some icing has more colour pigment than others and we cannot guarantee that all colours will not stain.
Q. Is my backdrop going to arrive folded?
A. Vinyl and Poly Paper backdrops are rolled in a tube, so you do not need to worry about them arriving folded or creased. Fabric and Fleece backdrops are shipped folded in a satchel, and any creases can simply be stretched out of the material.
Q. Can I request that the wood/pattern/design be printed at a specific size on my backdrop?
A. Yes! With most of our designs, especially wood and patterns, we can print them smaller or larger depending on your preference. If no preference is stated it will be printed as per the display image. Please note that photography backdrops are designed to be viewed and photographed at a normal distance in studio photography, they are not intended to be viewed or used at very close distance.
Q. Can I take a photo of your bath tub and/or backdrops to sell as a digital backdrop?
A. No. All our backdrop designs are licensed images and any copyright infringements are against the law. Please do not reproduce any of our designs in any way.
Our "Gatsby" Clawfoot Bath Tub is a patented product and is sold for personal use ONLY. We do not permit the sale of digital backdrops using our product.
Q. Will I get any glare on my backdrop?
A. Our vinyl backdrops are printed on a matte vinyl material and are designed to be used with both natural and studio lighting. We cannot guarantee that all of our designs will be glare free in all lighting scenarios. Some darker designs may be more sensitive to certain lighting and may require softer lighting for optimal results. We recommend having a good knowledge of lighting and practicing "feathering" your light. You are welcome to contact us with any queries prior to purchasing.
When using studio lighting please be aware that you may need to adjust the intensity or placement of your lights so as to achieve the desired results from your backdrop. Fixed lighting in your studio as well as ambient lighting also need to be taken into account as they may affect your results.
