Do you offer local delivery or pick-up?
Yes, as Utah locals you may pick up from our Woods Cross, Utah (12 minutes north of downtown SLC) studio or add delivery options in check out.

What sizes do you offer?
Our backdrops are offered in 8 staple sizes. Each listing contains the exact measurements of our paintings. xxL+ (10'x16) xxL (10x12) xL+ (8'x16') xL (8x12) L+ (6x12) L (6x10) M (5x7) S (4x6) Mini (<4x6)

What size is best for my project?
First and foremost keep in mind that you can hang your drops vertically and/or horizontally as preferred.

  • Large to xxL+ painting are best for larger groups, large rooms as interior installations, large product or (if you prefer) “negative space” for single portraits. 
  • L and L+ are by far the most common size allowing for easy transport, versatility for small group portraits, plenty of space for framing a single subject/product, and for interior installations.
  • Medium and Small (4’-5’ x 6-7’) drops are suited best for single headshots, draping, multi-drop layering installations, product photography, backdrops for still-life painting as well as interior vignette installations.
  • Mini paintings offer beautiful flat lay backgrounds or hung art that are entirely one-of-a-kind.

What equipment do I need to hang my backdrop?
While we’ve got some tips, the versatility of mounting options our clients come up with are amazing. Most commonly we employ:

- Classic tripod and cross bar backdrop stands
Setting the crossbar width just wider than the drop/PVC/wooden dowel mount width you may either thread the crossbar through the PVC, affix the canvas to the crossbar using clips, or drape the PVC/dowel mount over the cross bar and, if needed, clip the canvas to itself so it does not shift.

- C-stands
Using either 1 or 2 C-stands you might 1- thread the cross arm through the PVC, 2- affix the canvas to the cross arms using clips, or drape the PVC/dowel mount over the cross arms and, if needed, clip the canvas to itself so it does not shift. 

What do you use to hang your backdrops? They look so clean and seamless. 

Our favorite set up can be achieved with a c-stand kit + clamp. To purchase click the links.
