We were asked to design and print some colourful backdrops suitable for a travelling theatre group to take round schools.
They had to be waterproof and lightweight, but most of all colourful and engaging.
The substrate we recommended was a lightweight voil called Vision Screen. It’s a 125gsm synthetic fabric, similar in feel to the material that umbrellas are made from.
The backdrops were supplied with pockets along the top edge to allow for a long metal pole to be threaded their entire length, meaning that quick set changes were possible throughout the show.
