Cass + Co. X



Until recently all of our backdrops were manufactured using this 210gsm vinyl media. 

Lighter in weight than our Premium Product, it is perfect for one off designs and backdrops that are not used as frequently.

It is a waterproof, tear proof, blockout product.

PREMIUM VINYL (Recommended)

Introducing our Premium Vinyl.

At 510gsm it's heavier in weight with an amazing, smooth, luxurious feel.

This is our preferred vinyl that we will always recommend. Perfect for on the go photographers, as it does not curl and rolls out flat. 

It is a waterproof, tear proof, blockout product.


PVC is the perfect solution for backdrops that are large and require a robust finish.

Often used by portrait photographers as a studio floor, or hung as a seamless backdrop using your backdrop system. Pole loop options available.

Waterproof, tear proof with a slight weave through the material.

Looking after your backdrops


It's important to only use masking tape to adhere your backdrop to a wall or tabletop, alternative sticky tapes can damage the surface or leave a sticky residue.


Clean with a warm damp cloth and allow to dry before storing to avoid permanent marks or mould. You can store you backdrops rolled up in a tube or lay flat between two pieces of foam board.


Clean your backdrops using warm water and even some dish wash if required, just stay away from abrasive cleaners or cloths.


Avoid these and enjoy your backdrops forever!
Folding. Tumeric. Abrasives. Sharp objects. Nail polish. Solvents. Extreme heat. You get the drift!
