Customize the Perfect Step and Repeat Banners for Your Next Big Event

Step and repeat banners help turn any event into a memorable and photo-op filled occasion. These versatile banners are perfect for weddings, award ceremonies, and corporate events that require a good backdrop for taking pictures.

Whether it’s on the red carpet or inside a trade show, step and repeat backdrops are great promotional tools that can help you attract more customers to your business. With your logo prominently displayed across the signage, the banner unobtrusively increases brand awareness.

For every picture taken in front of the banner, you can count on more people to see your logo once the photos are released to the press and social media. The event attendees are reminded of your brand and more likely to remember it next time they need your product or service.

Personalize the Important Details of Your Step and Repeat Banners

A size to fit all your sponsors’ logos.

Step and repeat banners come in many different sizes. The most popular choice is 8’ x 8’, which is commonly used for red carpet events.

You may also use the 8’ x 8’ banner to showcase your brand logo for product launches, event photography, and other publicity events. The scenic backdrop also works great for parties.

We even offer custom-size banners as small as 4’ x 4’ if there is limited space at the event. The largest one that we can print is 20’ x 8’, perfect for big scale events like corporate parties.

Sturdy materials that boost visibility of your logo and partners.

Choose between standard 13 oz. or 18 oz. matte vinyl.

The standard 13 oz. vinyl offers a smooth, matte finish at a low cost for a limited budget. Spending less doesn’t compromise the durability and fine finish of the step and repat banner.

The matte vinyl will help impress your clients and VIP guests at a red carpet or formal event. The smooth finish stands out under bright lights, whether in the daytime or at night. It’s also guaranteed to last longer and look good as new with its tear-resistant and fungus-resistant features. If you have several events with the same sponsors, you can reuse this backdrop multiple times.

Order double-sided printing for more photo opportunities.

Don’t hold up the line for photos at your anticipated event. Print on both sides of the custom step and repeat banner to increase exposure of your brand and sponsors in every photo. Your guests will appreciate having more space and time to take memories at the event.

Include accessories that aid your custom step and repeat banner’s installation.

Ensure a faster setup before the event with the right finishing choice:

  • Grommets are holes where you can attach rope or other binding material through to secure the banner tightly.
  • Pole Pockets offer support for poles you’ll use to hang the banners. We’ll place the pockets at the top and bottom areas.

Step and Repeat Banners Q&As

To prevent glare in photos, you may opt to print the banner on a blockout 13 oz. polyvinyl film. The gray backside keeps light from reflecting back.

The largest banner size that can fit on our stands is 10’ x 8’. However, we can put grommets on your banner for you to hang against a wall.

The great thing about grommets is that they are rust-resistant and won’t tear the material even if you use the banner outdoors.

“Just an FYI - be aware that the large banners (8x8 and up) print on vinyl and will crease if folded. If you need to transport/ship these large banners, it really comes in a long box (8 o r10 feet long) so you should be aware of this. I knew I was ordering vinyl but didn't think through the logistics until it arrived. And, I couldn't return the stand because it was part of a package.”

“The banner was dulled in color and the threading went directly through our wording at the top and through the photos at the bottom. I emailed after receiving it with no reply. I didn’t want to write a negative review but the request to review… just keep coming.”
