What is Step and Repeat?
A print pattern where images, typically company logos, are printed in a repeated pattern is referred to as Step and Repeat. Most will have 2 or more logos repeated to represent multiple brands simultaneously.
The most popular banners and backdrops
are printed in a Step and Repeat pattern!
What kind of materials are step and repeats printed on?
Fabric makes the best step and repeat; it is durable, folds to an easily transported size and is lightweight. Our “Top of the Line” fabric is the Ultraflex UltraPoplin® Soft Image, it’s 100% polyester with a matte finish, environmentally friendly and is 100% recyclable. The polyester yarn knit and special coatings make this an easily printable fabric that is wrinkle and crease resistant.
Vinyl is our most requested step and repeat, vinyl options include:
13oz vinyl scrim is the prototypical material we use, it is very durable and with our latex inks, provides a vibrant step and repeat that commands attention.
Mylar is the brand name for a special type of stretched polyester film that is adhered as a backing to the vinyl. Mylar provides a high tensile strength that makes our step and repeats extremely durable. We use Mylar reinforced vinyl on most of our retractable banner stands.
Mesh Vinyl provides an outdoor solution for a wind resistant step and repeat. Our PVC coated polyester scrim mesh banner material allows 30% airflow through, making it ideal for outdoor use. We can design a step and repeat with a transparent background to create a 3-Dimensional effect.
Fabric is Best, Vinyl costs Less
