As you finalize the set design for the next tour, are you confused as to what digital substrate would work best for your scenic backdrop needs? Not to worry. There are a variety of substrates available for direct printing on a wide format digital printer, so there is sure to be one that is right for you.

Tour playing at indoor venues, from small theatres to large indoor arenas? A fabric substrate is usually the best option, with choices ranging from Heavy Knit and Cotton Canvas (great options for front lighting) to Artist Light (great for back lighting).

Tour playing at outdoor arenas and festivals? Consider a Vinyl Mesh or Matte Vinyl substrate for greater durability and rain resistance. Worried about wind? Vinyl Mesh is the substrate for you as it allows blow-through.
