USE OF PHOTOGRAPHY BACKDROPS

In this section we are collecting all the frequently asked questions that we are asked about the use of backdrops for photos.

How resilient are your backdrops?

Although our material is very resistant, you must use your bottom sensibly: do not put hot objects such as pans or pots, as it is not resistant to high temperatures. Be careful not to drag objects like ceramic bowls that have sharp edges over the bottoms. At the same time, food or other abrasive liquids can bleed, stain, or stain your background, so watch out for the latter. Don't make cuts directly on the backgrounds either, as they will deteriorate more quickly. Finally, don't fold your backgrounds too much, as they could stick to the shape of the fold. It is best to store them flat or rolled up in their original tube.

How should I clean the backdrops?

We normally try to clean them with a cloth and water and avoid rubbing too much with the cloth, as you can lift the ink. If they are more persistent stains, we normally use glass cleaner or dishwashing liquid. Of course we recommend avoiding stronger cleaning liquids such as grease remover, since rubbing a lot ends up lifting the ink. Above all, we recommend that you avoid all kinds of abrasive liquids, such as alcohol, acetone, solvents, turpentine, etc. as you will damage the quality of the material. Unfortunately we can only accept exchange or returns of products that have not been used, and must be intact as they were sent. You can read our exchange and return policy for more information.

How to design photos with backdrops?

The ideal way to design your photos with backdrops is to divide your photography into elements: color, luminosity, texture and tone. Once you have decided which ones you want for your image, it will be very easy to design your photo and you can choose from our extensive catalog the backdrops that best suit your idea.

How to edit photos and put white background?

It is easiest to photograph your products on a white photographic background such as our Blanco Blanco backdrop. This will ensure that the photo looks quality and you will save a lot of time in Photoshop or editing programs by cutting out the figure from the background.
