FAQ's

ALL OUR DROPS ARE GLARE FREE!

 

How do I care for my backdrops?

All materials for our backdrops and floors are tear resistant. However no material is completely indestructible, and taking care of your backdrops and floordrops is very important to make sure they last for as long as possible and you get the most use from them.  To avoid damage, including creases and scratches, handle your backdrops with care and store them rolled. We recommend using the tubes they are posted in to store them. 

Our vinyl backdrops are not the same material as a Vinyl tablecloth you may purchase in a shop. They cannot be wiped, washed down or cleaned with sprays such as anti bacterial sprays. It is important for photographers to not have glare from the backdrops and floors (which you would get with a vinyl tablecloth). Due to the nature of our matte finish, any water that gets on a backdrop or floor should simply allowed to AIR DRY, DO NOT WIPE.  If you plan to use the  drop on the floor with 'high risk subjects!' (i.e. animals or children that may urinate, cake smash sessions etc), we suggest you protect your floor or backdrop with a clear acrylic sheet or clear perspex. If you do plan a cake smash session please try and smear the icing in a small area in the corner of the backdrop prior to using as some icing can be too oily and will stain your backdrop. Dark sole trainers may also mark vinyl floor drops. If care and attention is taken when using your backdrops and floors as suggested and they are stored correctly you will have many years use from your backdrops. If you are unsure about cleaning your backdrop or the use of them please contact us prior to using as we cannot be held responsible for backdrops or floors that are damaged through use.

 

 

  • Please review the design listings on our website carefully.  Before you check-out you have the opportunity to re-review your order once again. Once an order has been printed it cannot be refunded.  There are no exceptions to this policy. 
  • All computer monitors are not calibrated equally. We have made every effort to display (as accurately as possible) the colors and brightness/darkness of our floors & drops on our website but we cannot guarantee exact color matching. Due to monitor discrepancies, we cannot guarantee that your display will be accurate and your backdrop may look different then what you see on your screen.  When looking at examples on our website of the backdrops/floordrops 'in use' by our customers please note that the look of those images will also vary based on the photographer's lighting conditions, white balance, and editing techniques.  Please note that we cannot offer refunds or exchanges due to slight color variation as it should be expected with printed products.
  • Large format printing is meant to be used at a distance and is not intended to be viewed up close.  Your backdrops are designed to be in the depth of field (DOF) at the proper distance from your subject (approximately 6 foot is the norm).  If you have questions regarding about how this process works please email us

What Size Should I Get?

We offer 2 widths of paper - 42 inches and 60 inches

42 x 42 is our smallest size, and is suitable for babies that can sit and not move, newborns, headshots, dogs, ie, subjects that aren't going to move too much.  Also great for product photography.

60 x 100 is our biggest size available for single designs, and affords you the ability to shoot sitting groups, or a few standing adults.



What Paper Should I Get?

Our designs can be printed on 3 different “paper” types :

Poly Vinyl

Very lightweight - can be rolled especially tightly, meaning it takes up less room in your studio / car.

If it becomes lightly creased, simply warm it gently with a hairdryer or your studio fan heater.

Light enough to be gently taped to a wall giving a very tidy finish.

Can be a bit flappy on a backdrop stand - however, we supply you with enough spare material to create tab tops for your drop.

Won't withstand much use if used as a floor regularly.

Canvas

This paper is more of a fabric and is tough enough to hang from your backdrop stand with clamps.

To keep it in tip-top condition, roll it up after your session.

Not wipeable.

Won't withstand much use if used as a floor regularly.

Vinyl

This is our thickest material type and is most suitable for flooring designs.

 

Pole Pockets

If you select that you want a pole pocket for your drop, spare paper will be sent with your order.  Simply staple or glue some tabs to your drop and then slip your backdrop pole through the loops you have made. 

 

 

How Much Is Shipping?

All our drops are despatched using a courier company.

Each parcel is charged at £12.99 per box.

Depending on your chosen paper type, we are sometimes able to include more than one drop per parcel.  Because of this, your shipping is calculated during the checkout process and is based on the value of your order.

 

What If I Add A Hat Or Frame To My Order?

Hats, headbands and frames are sent from different suppliers so your shipping cost will be calculated during the checkout procedure to include their delivery charges.

 

Help!  I Need A Drop Urgently!

We are usually able to print and despatch your drop order within 24 hours of purchase.  However, everybody involved with Props For Togs are also full time photographers, so we may be out shooting an all day wedding etc.  Please bear this in mind before relying on next day delivery.  If in doubt, please get in touch through our contact page.

 

 

Would You Like One Of My Images Using Your Props?

Yes please!  As photographers ourselves, we love having a nose at other people’s work!

It is also a great way of showcasing to other photographers how lighting and editing can effect the drops, as well as giving a sense of size and scale.

You can upload your low-res, WATERMARKED images to our facebook page :
