Top Tips to Create the Best Step & Repeat Banner

What Is a Step and Repeat Banner?

A step and repeat banner is also known as a press wall or media backdrop. It comes in the form of a fabric display stand, which is positioned at your event or venue to capture images with a consistent and branded backdrop.

You might have also heard a step and repeat banner referred to as a media wall, a logo wall, a pressboard, sponsor board or even an interview photo wall. Each is the same and is used for this consistent photography at an event.

Choose Matte Not Glossy
It’s always essential to have suitable fabric to ensure that your images don’t have glare. 
Keep the Design Simple
Unless you need more images for another reason that links to your event, keep your design simple and choose a repeat of your brand logo for maximum impact.
Choose Logo Size Carefully
Make sure your logos are big enough to be seen on a zoomed-out image but not so big that you can only see a couple of letters once a person is in front of them. You want your logo to surround the person being photographed. If you know you will be photographing one person at a time; a smaller logo works well. For large group images, a bigger logo works because the image will be taken from further away.
