The large 12x8 (Approx. 12ft x 8ft) is 2 feet wider than most standard popup portable backdrop displays. But it still packs down into a duffle bag that you can carry with one hand and transport in the back of your car.

The self-contained backdrop system can be set-up in less than 2 minutes by one person. No tools are needed, and no parts to assembly. Just expand the aluminum frame, attach a few velcro tabs on the curtain and you are ready for show time. Packing up is just as fast, making it an easy backdrop display solution when you are doing multiple events in the same day.

This large 12-foot wide backdrop is popular with professional entertainers who perform in schools, corporate events, and larger venues, as it gives an immediate impression of a "big show". The extra large 12ft width is good if multiple people will be standing in front of the backdrops, and for event displays. The complete backdrop takes up minimal floor space, with a depth of just 11 inches. The unique all-in-one aluminum expanding frame design means your backdrop is sturdy, and there are no tripods or pipe and drape poles to hassle with.

Shows To Go Backdrops’ portable backdrop curtains are printed on a durable poly-blend theatrical fabric that has a matte finish to prevent glare. This provides an ideal background for photos, video and live performances with bright stage lighting.

An entire 12x8 display with a standard frame weighs 28 pounds, and packs down to a compact 34"x12"x12" size. That makes it one of the lightest and most portable backdrop displays available.
