Stage backdrops are meant to make an impression, but how much do they cost?

SAN DIEGO, California, USA, Aug. 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — How much does a stage backdrop cost?

Stage backdrops are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes and textures. While once upon a time pipe and curtain backdrops were the norm, this is no longer the case as newer products are becoming more affordable and much easier to install. Not to mention that the innovations behind the scenes have taken the industry in new and exciting directions.

A backdrop at a conference or special event is meant to make an impression. With the materials and technology available today, stage backdrops are breaking new ground and becoming as much part of a brand as anything else.

That said, many often wonder if certain types of backdrops are feasible given the budget of the event. Determining the true cost of a stage set involves several details. This means that no two events are the same and no two backgrounds are the same.

Due to the different products available for setting up a stage set, costs will vary. So it’s hard to give a solid number or number. Below is some information that may help companies budgeting for a backdrop for an upcoming event.

Pipe and Drape Backdrops

As mentioned, pipe and drape backdrops are very traditional event backdrops. With a series of vertical and cross pipes fitted with curtains, the backdrop is certainly adequate. And therefore, brands pay for the adequate price. There really aren’t many bells and whistles here beyond color. With this type of backdrop, although businesses can save money, it shows in the overall otherwise one-dimensional look of the backdrop. And that, in turn, says a lot about the event, the presentation and the brand.

REXframe Seamless Printed Walls

Then there’s the modular REXframe system, ideal for full-tension floor and hanging graphics. Creating an experience is a no-brainer with this stage backdrop system. Using a finishing technique called SEG (Silcone Edge Graphic), a bead of silicone is sewn around the perimeter of a custom printed dye sub-graphic. This SEG edge slips into a channel on the perimeter of the wall frame and keeps the graphic in full tension in all four directions.

To take it even further, one company, Expressive Structures, actually uses a fabric that has a black vinyl backing which therefore acts as a liner blocking all the light from the wings. Many clients will place or hang a small, dye-printed wall in combination with pipe and drape when transitioning to more vibrant scenic backgrounds.

Hardboard decors

Comprised of a modular frame system, hardboard decor can truly achieve a multi-dimensional effect. The structure itself is made up of lightweight aluminum frames covered with acrylic or fabric panels. Frames can be bolted together and configured to meet specific event needs. This means it can be customized for any location. Although it costs more than pipe and drape, the effect is immediate, powerful and completely dynamic. And that translates into branding and increasing the level of audience engagement achieved at the event.

Frameset backdrops

Frameset is becoming the go-to alternative to pipe and drape backdrops in small venues. These are quick-folding frames with versatile covers. Ideal for ballrooms and less conventional event spaces. And the frameset is easy to configure; given the flexibility and ease of use of the frameset, the cost is really affordable – think of the impact on the audience when they walk into the room.

Why opt for a modular stage backdrop?

Will a company pay more than it would for pipes and curtains if it opts for a modular solution? Most likely the answer is yes. However, when a comparison of the two options is made, a true ROI review…modular bottoms such as REXframe, Hard Panels scenic and Frameset emerge as the winning solution. What does a modular backdrop give to brands that can’t be done with pipes and drapes…

A more dramatic atmosphere that engages the audience

Opportunity to highlight brand and meeting themes

A professional looking backdrop that takes brands to another level


The ability to configure quickly and ship compactly

Ultimately, it’s about creating an experience that engages audiences, drives conversions, and leaves a lasting impression. And that’s exactly what a modular backdrop can do for brands.
