Photobooth Custom Backdrops | The Photobooth Bros
What is a custom backdrop you ask? It’s the step and repeat thing with logos on it that you see behind celebrities in pictures at red carpet events – or at least, that’s its technical definition.
We prefer the marketing-specific explanation: custom backdrops are an inexpensive way to increase brand awareness by getting your logo and company name featured in the backgrounds of images that’ll be used everywhere, from newspapers to Facebook profile pics. A custom backdrop also adds a distinctly hip factor to any event, and gives off the impression that you represent a legit company. If you’ve got a custom backdrop, your shindig is officially swanky – and worthy of Instagramming selfies from.
You don’t need to roll out the red carpet for a step and repeat to work its magic – they’re just as useful at trade shows, conventions, demo days, grand openings and every other kind of event that you want your company to have a real presence at.
Your custom backdrop also doesn’t need to consist of logos (Unless you want it to!). We can also design any background so if you’re planning a Candy Land Themed party, we can definitely accommodate that for you!

What are the file dimensions/requirements for my custom artwork?
We format artwork to the actual print sizes + 2 inches for bleed. For example, say you want a 4′ x 4′ backdrop. We would start with a photoshop file that is 50″ x 50″ at 72dpi. The safe zone is typically 8″ inset from the outside dimensions. Feel free to download our template start files available for you to download if you’d like to build directly on them.
I want to create my own step and repeat, what advice would you give me?
– If you have multiple logos, make them similar in size
– Never have any font smaller than 1/2″ tall
– In Photoshop, utilize your guides, rulers and your align & distribute tools to make sure everything is level and even
– Always start with the correct file size and zoom into your logos 100% to make sure the quality is crisp
How do I hang my custom backdrop?
No worries, The PhotoBooth Bros will manage the entire experience for you so you don’t have to stress out or worry whatsoever! We will include the Frame, Lighting, and picture taking of your guests to ensure you get the best experience possible!
What size do I need?
There are many things to take into consideration here. Usually with any custom artwork, such as a step and repeat logo, you want the backdrop to show behind the person about 2 feet on either side to get a good photo. If you scrunch people in, you can really maximize your shot. Here are our recommended “non scrunch” sizing:
1 Person can fit on a 4 foot wide backdrop
2 People – 6′ wide
3-4 People 8′ wide
5-6 People 9′ -10′ wide
8-9 People 12′ wide
10-11 People 16′ wide
12 People 20′ wide
