Portable Backdrop Features

Shows To Go Backdrops: Portable Backdrop Features

Professional Theatrical Backdrop Fabric

Our backdrops are printed on the same durable, polyester blend fabric that is used by the top scenic design companies for Broadway productions and theatrical productions around the world. The fabric is designed to resist wrinkles and be durable enough for a professional touring schedule. It has a matte finish that does not reflect stage lights or photography flashes.

High Resolution Dye Sublimation Printing

The graphics on our backdrops and printed display products our printed using the lasted dye sublimation fabric printing technology. Dye sublimation fuses the ink to the fabric to provide high resolution and vivid colors that will not fade. The graphics also will not run or bleed if the backdrop accidently gets wet.

Many Size Options

Shows To Go Backdrops has the widest selection of sizes for portable fabric backdrops and marketing displays. Portable backdrops with expanding frames range from 5 feet wide to an amazing 17 feet wide (the widest portable backdrop available anywhere). Heights range from 8 feet to 10 feet. By combining several portable backdrops, you can create a stage display in almost any configuration imaginable.  See our sizing chart to compare sizes. Custom printed backdrop curtains and banners (without frames/ stands) are available in custom sizes up to 36ft x 20ft! 


Easy Cleaning And Maintenance

Printed backdrops can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Stubborn wrinkles from extended storage can be easily removed with a clothing steamer.


Lightweight Aluminum Frames

Our expanding backdrop / display frames are some of the lightest and most compact in the industry. The durable, tubular aluminum construction will stand up to years of shows. The curtain quickly attaches to the frame using velcro connections at strategic points around the frame. An upgrade to a heavyweight frame is also available - see frame comparisons..

Completely Freestanding Background

The portable backdrops are free standing displays, and do not require any additional support or anchoring for performance. In some venues, we may recommend weighting down the back of the 10x10 or 8x10 (10 ft high) frames. This can be done with small sandbags, stage weights, or even road cases. 

Lightening Fast, One Person Set-Up

Your Shows To Go Backdrop can be set-up by one person in less than 90 seconds after you arrive at the venue. Once your backdrop is set-up, you have your own "backstage" to continue setting up the rest of your show.

No Tools Needs

The backdrop frame sets-up and locks into place using high powered magnetic latches. There are no tools needed and no hardware to lose.

Award-Winning Custom Artwork

We have award winning in-house graphic designers who specialize in illustrations and graphics for large format display and theatrical backdrop printing. They can take your concept and ideas and turn them into a show-stopping custom backdrop display.

Easily Change Backdrop Curtains At Any Time

Once you own our standard portable backdrop frame, you can change the curtain designs at any time without having to buy another frame. This allows you to easily customize the look of your show or event just by switching out the curtain. Changing out a curtain design only takes 90 seconds. This means you could change your entire stage set design during your show's intermission. The ability to affordably change out curtains is particularly valuable to entertainers who perform different shows for different audience, as they can provide a distinct look for each type of performance. Ordering a custom curtain design will help make your production even more personalized and one-of-a-kind in the eyes of clients and audiences.
