Recently I was looking through some of our most incredible stage designs to get some ideas for another client’s upcoming event. I was blown away when I came across this awe-inspiring custom digital stage backdrop, made from Supreme Vinyl Mesh, that was a multi-part piece printed and sewn by Sew What? Inc. for their client Triple Horse Productions, for a huge church event in Georgia. Having this directly printed digital backdrop made into 5 separate pieces (made up of drapes 42 feet high by 35 feet wide, 20 feet wide, and 9 feet wide) allowed maximum flexibility for actor entrances and exits as well as the potential to move to a smaller (or larger) stage location in the future. The angular “mosaic” style segments lent themselves stylistically to this instantly recognizable piece of art. Supreme Mesh is an excellent candidate for printing – often overlooked for indoor use. The color saturation and output on the heavily coated vinyl mesh surface is extremely vibrant, despite that it is made of mesh.
This custom theatrical backdrop made of Supreme Vinyl Mesh is also known as Speaker Mesh and is great for when air circulation is of concern, which makes it perfect for indoor and outdoor events that may have sound and music elements. It is also tested and approved as Flame Retardant, so you aren’t limited to only using it outdoors, which is perfect for events and productions held inside theatres and on stages of all types. This backdrop was also “hot-wedge” welded, giving an almost “seamless” look to its vertical seams. Top-finished with webbing, grommets, and ties made it super easy to attach to the church’s in-house truss system in a manner of minutes.
While doing my research, I discovered that Direct Digital Fabric Printing is extremely cost-effective for proof and short-run printing, reduces proofing time from weeks to hours (which accelerates design and product development when time is of the essence), and permits and encourages customization and personalization from your own design vision. Here is another example of what this incredibly versatile Supreme Mesh looks like up close through a colorful design.
As you can see, it is extremely bright and clear, which showcases your intended image beautifully for your audience to enjoy. Rent What? is always thrilled when we have the perfect backdrop or specialty drape for your event. But if we don’t have it, I want to highly recommend having a personally tailored custom direct print digital backdrop created by the talented individuals at Sew What?, because they can literally take ideas from your imagination and turn them into a reality.
