Dye Sublimation Stage Backdrops
Dye sublimation printing is ideal for creating stage backdrops as it is inherently brightly colored and yet glare resistant allowing for the creation of bright and realistic background imagery that doesn’t result in image degradation under bright light or an  uncomfortable experience for the audience with too much glare coming from the backdrop.

For theater backdrops we use sturdy and wrinkle resistant polyester fabric which will withstand the stresses of the necessarily fast paced changes between scenes. They can be folded away and then reused with virtually no wrinkling. Should the need arise our dye sublimated stage backdrops can be washed and even ironed without effecting the color unlike other printing methods. No need to be concerned with problems of scuffing, color degradation and fading after washing or under strong lights or cracking of the design when folded.

Why use a Dye Sublimation Theatre Backdrop

Because its sets a scene like nothing else can. In movies it often comes down to location scouting and then the framing of those locations by the director of photography. With TV shows, typically custom sets are built to simulate hospitals, homes, police stations and the like.

With theater it’s very different. Everything is performed in real time.  There is no second third and fourth take. There is no checking of the monitors during takes with adjustment of lighting, shot angles etc. between takes. Everything just has to be done right first time and the cast and crew have got to be prepared to roll with the punches and continue no matter what. “Break a leg” only applies to theatre actors not film or TV actors for exactly this reason.

Theatre performances may or may not involve sets and usually budget and artistic direction will be the deciding factor here.  An increasingly popular way of setting the scene is to use a printed backdrop either by itself or even hung on the wall of an artificial room to save the time and cost of actually setting the room up for each performance. Different backdrops can be lowered between acts to indicate a change of location.
