Have an event coming up? Custom step and repeat banners are an awesome way to promote your brand or logo while also creating a picture-perfect photo opportunity for guests and/or prospective customers and clients alike. These step and repeat backdrops are most typically used as photo backgrounds, displaying a repeating pattern of complementary logos or branding that stand out behind the person being photographed. Your logo backdrop is printed on a vinyl or fabric material in a custom step and repeat fashion, finished with pole sleeves and/or grommets, and is mounted to a telescoping aluminum frame.
Step and repeat banners are popular for any large gatherings including trade shows, company events, weddings, red carpet premiers, press conferences, high end clubs, or any event that could benefit from a professionally styled red carpet backdrop.
These versatile step & repeat backdrops add extra charm to the gathering while providing an upscale photo background, making the event a more memorable occasion. They can be used as an inexpensive way to make an event fun while helping to create lasting memories for the attending guests. Because of the style and entertainment factor, step and repeat banners are popular among all age groups, and by all types of businesses! They are also great for promoting a company to all guests, prospective customers, and viewers of the event photos. Photos are often shared on website and social media giving the promoted company an extra bit of brand awareness, especially when they are shared on websites, newspapers, and social media.
Vinyl or Polyester Materials Choose between two vinyl and two polyester materials. Both vinyl and polyester options have either a matte or glossy finish, but vinyl fabric is weather-resistant and UV-protected while the polyester fabric is knitted. Both materials are great for indoor and light outdoor use.
Easy Assembly Our step and repeat banners include everything you need to setup the set. The telescopic poles are adjustable to suit a wide range of banner sizes. The poles simply snap and click together and connect to the frame with screw knobs. The banners connect to the pole set with either pole pockets or grommets.
Portable for Travel Take your step and repeat backdrop with you to trade shows, social events, and business conferences. The whole stand is incredibly lightweight and is easy to take down and setup again. The poles disconnect without any tools and the banners roll up into a compact size.
Long-Lasting Backdrop Both the frame and the banner come in durable materials that will last for multiple uses. The poles are made from aluminum while the supportive feet are made from metal. The step & repeat banner materials are printed using either digital or dye sublimation printing, which guarantee striking graphics that will not scratch or peel.

Step and Repeat Banners - Frequently Asked Questions
Can a custom step and repeat backdrop be set up by one person?
Yes, the step and repeat backdrop can be set up by one person. It will, however, be an easier set up with two people. If you need help setting up the step and repeat banner, go to the “Videos” tab and view our assembly video.
Do you offer an alternative backdrop finishing to grommets?
Yes! We also offer an option for pole sleeves. If you go to the “Select Your Finish” question in the configurator, there are options available for pole pockets and grommets, just pole pockets, and just grommets. This product is defaulted to pole pockets and grommets.
Which material should I select for my first custom step and repeat?
We would recommend using the display or premium polyester for your first event step and repeat banner, especially if you are hanging it on a frame. Polyester is more lightweight and has less glare than vinyl. Both polyester materials are great for most conditions.
Can the step and repeat banner be used as a “Red Carpet” backdrop?
Yes! These step and repeat backdrops are typically used for red carpet functions. We also offer an adjustable banner stand for red carpet events.
Can I order just the step and repeat banner print without the stand?
Yes. You can order just the custom step and repeat banner, without the stand. To do this simply select “No Stand” in the product configurator above..
Can I order just the step and repeat stand itself, without the print?
Yes! You can purchase the step and repeat frame separately by going here.
Which step and repeat backdrop material is more durable for multiple uses?
Polyester step and repeat banners hold up over longer periods of repeated use. We offer both display and premium polyester options. The display option is nearly opaque, and the premium fabric is 100% opaque. Both selections are made of flame-retardant knitted fabric.
Which step and repeat banner and stand is easier to travel with?
Polyester step and repeat banners are far easier to transport. They are lighter, more flexible, and can fold like a flag. Vinyl step and repeat backdrops are heavier, and are required to be rolled up to transported, something that can be difficult depending on how large your automobile is. For vinyl banners, you shouldn’t fold them like you would with polyester banners. This will cause wrinkles.
How do I get rid of wrinkles on my banner?
We have a wide selection of popular, set sizes in the configurator ranging from 6ft x 6ft to 10ft x 10ft with 8x8 banners being the most popular. These are the sizes that will fit best on the step and repeat stand. We don’t offer any custom sizes because they are not as compatible with the hardware. If you would like a step and repeat banner in a custom size, we offer our print only vinyl and fabric display banners in custom sizes.
How do I get rid of wrinkles on my banner?
Wrinkles often appear on vinyl and polyester material, so it's important to know how to store them properly and how to get rid of them if they appear. When storing your banners, we recommend rolling it instead of folding the material, because this can cause the fabric to crease.
If your banner gets wrinkled, remove them by either laying the step and repeat banner flat outside or setting it up on its hardware and letting it sit for a day or so. Read our blog post that goes into further detail about how to get rid of wrinkles.
