Backdrop Printing NYC

Backdrop Printing in NYC, Fast and Local

Our graphic backdrop printing services might look like a million bucks next to a red carpet, but as with everything Thomas Group does, we make sure to keep them affordable as well as attractive.

Backdrops, also called step-and-repeat banners or backdrops, are one of the specialty printing jobs our state-of-the-art digital large format printing capabilities allow us to offer. They’re perfect for exclusive events, promotional outings, concerts, galas, red carpets, grand openings, film screenings, festivals, conferences, and anywhere else a well-placed backdrop might be needed for a photo opportunity.

Photos from such events are shared online more widely than ever before, and there’s no better way to get your company, festival or business name in front of millions than to serve as the background logo for all those shots. It’s also a great place to position beautiful art, eye-catching graphic design, or any other image people will want to take a photo in front of. Backdrops also are frequently found at trade shows, conventions and retail events, branding events, and press conferences.

Backdrop Printing Options

We can provide rush printing for backdrops in a wide range of choices for material and design. Our large format presses deliver both speed and pristine quality on either vinyl or polyester fabric backdrops. Vinyl is a more casual option with good durability for outdoors events, while fabric provides a no-glare surface that gives a more upscale appearance.

Freestanding backdrop sizes can range from 6×8 feet up to 8×16 feet, with the most common backdrop sizes in the middle of that range. Step-and-repeat backdrops can be even bigger, and are created by repeating the same print on several adjoining pieces.

Backdrop Stands

We can customize your backdrop to your needs for hanging or mounting; pockets can be placed at top and bottom, or grommets can be set at corners or around the whole backdrop. If you’re also in need of backdrop stand equipment, we have options available for you. Adjustable height and width stands for step-and-repeats are a good choice, or pop-up backdrop stands are easy to use with fabric backdrops. When you order, talk with us about the hardware available and what best suits your needs, so we can be sure you get the best result.

Our Approach

We focus on serving our NYC customers with fast, beautiful and professional results every time. As a full-service commercial printing company in our fourth generation of operation in Manhattan, Thomas Group looks for ways to make your printing experience easy, affordable and one-stop.

We keep up with the latest in printing technology to create the highest quality we can for our customers, and we’re always happy to talk with you about quotes, options and what we can do to help your event succeed.

If you need a backdrop but are in a real hurry, remember that our backdrop printing is available as a rush service, and we deliver by courier anywhere in New York City’s five boroughs, so you’ll get your printed order as fast as possible. If you’re outside the city, we ship fast and nationwide.

Thomas Group Printing was absolutely fantastic to work with. My company had a tight deadline to have 150 booklets created and TGP completed the task with ease. They we're also very patient with teaching me how the page formatting aligns, as someone who does not have past experience. Looking forward to using TGP again in the future. Highly recommend!

TGP saved us in a crisis! Due to unpredictable circumstances, our art gallery wasn't able to send our catalog to print as early as planned, and ended up on a serious time crunch to get the project done for an upcoming event. Glen and Rory helped me get the files print-ready and met our deadline with little stress. The final product was exactly what we needed and the team was great to work with start to finish. Thank you!!

Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society, recently had the opportunity to work with Thomas Group Printing for an exhibit catalogue. Pre-press customer service was outstanding. All of our questions were answered, and files tested to ensure quality printing. The print and bind exceeded our expectations. Color was clean and consistent throughout the run. We recommend Thomas Group Printing and will work with them again.

I was looking for a printer in NYC for one of my clients and came across Thomas Group Printing. Not only were they the first company to get back to me with an estimate for my project, but they were in constant contact to ensure that our brochure printing went smoothly and everything turned out exactly as we were hoping for. Great family-owned business!

It's always a perk to be able to work with a family-owned business, but the Thomas Group sets themselves apart from the competition on so many other levels. From the moment I reached out with questions through the point of having our newsprints in-hand, Rory was incredibly polite, timely, and accommodating in all requests. The cost was more than fair and the color and paper quality were excellent. I will definitely go to the Thomas group for future projects and recommend them to anyone in need of newsprint-style printing.

With an industry conference coming up in 10 days in Manhattan, I needed to print 125 copies of a book I'd written. Rory and Thomas Group came through -- we had a couple back and forths over email and they got the books printed in 3-4 days, well in advance.I took a redeye to Newark, picked up the books from their office, then headed to the event, and it was a big success. Thank you!

In an age when printers are closing up left and right, Thomas Group Printing is standing strong and was able to offer my company, Ideal Jaocobs Corp, competitive pricing, fast turn around time, and a high quality product with ease. We ask a lot from our suppliers because we demand a lot from ourselves for our customers. It's very much appreciated when those we partner with share the same values.

In printing a Lookbook, Thomas Group Printing has exceeded our expectations. The final product was beautiful and such a hit with our company. Rory was our main point of contact and he was responsive and helpful from beginning to end. We have decided to use them a second time after such a great first experience. Will definitely continue to use them in the future and cannot recommend them enough.

This is a solid NYC company that just knows what they're doing. They helped me out with a very last minute order for film posters and made the experience completely stress free, recommending the appropriate paper, and offering a courier service to the theater. Great communication, quick turnaround and quality product.
