Check out our digitally printed drapery used for the Marc Anthony Opus Tour 2019 in Las Vegas.

No matter where you look, you will likely see digitally printed fabric, digital printed backdrops and wide-format digital billboards. That’s because any graphics created for printing on paper can be printed on fabric. With a variety of substrates to choose from, digital printing enables you to magnify photo quality images into stunning custom theatrical and scenic digital backdrops, concert drapes, and exhibit booth panels.

This massive printed drapery for the Marc Anthony OPUS Tour is a gorgeous example of how a printed billboard sized cloth can transform a stage. This is a spectacular walk-in scene for the top of the show!  Our fabric of choice for this type of project is our Crystal Poplin because of its durability and semi-gloss print surface. In a large-scale piece such as this, you really want the image to pop when lit. As Crystal Poplin is a translucent fabric, it also offers lighting designers the opportunity to flood with light from behind for a back lit or silhouette effect which gives another dynamic to the stage look.

At 42’h x 78′ wide this custom sewn brail lift drape is crafted with virtually invisible lift line details to fit and lift on a ShowRig Automation Lift System.  On cue, the drape is raised to reveal the stage. If needed the drape can be lowered mid show to mask the upstage area for a set change. Fascinated?

With so many different lighting effects, this spectacular drape with mural sized portrait of Marc Anthony takes on a life of its own. Just remember, the show starts BEFORE the curtain goes up!
