Colour Variance

We use a colour spectrometer and calibrated printers to ensure that your backdrop is printed accurately and within our allowable colour parameters.
Every computer has different colour and resolution settings, therefore colours shown on your screen may vary slightly from the actual print depending on your settings. Computer monitors display colours in RGB mode whereas printers use CMYK colour output, so some minor variance may occur.
Some backdrop designs have shading which may not be appear strongly on screen but when printed at a larger size may become more visible. The lighting in which you view your backdrop may also have a large effect on the visible colour hues.
If you have chosen a reversible backdrop, these are printed on a smooth vinyl, and some prints or colours may appear differently depending on which print is on the reverse side due to the depth and tone of the designs.
Please note that some solid colours or textures may appear slightly differently when printed at a larger scale, as the the design may be stretched in order to be printed at a large size, or the base colours may be more apparent than when viewed on a computer screen. For example, beige and brown colours are green-based, therefore the green tones may be more visible once printed. Some lighter colours can also be more sensitive to the immediate environment, such as walls, windows, carpet etc that may cause different colour casts to appear on your backdrop. Simply adjusting your light source and limiting strong coloured objects in the immediate vicinity will assist with reducing other colours reflecting on your backdrop.
Some designs may have some visible print lines depending on the lightness of the design. These lines may be visible close up but should not affect the way the backdrops photographs. Solid colours are more likely to have this effect.
Our backdrops are designed to be able to be used in conjunction with flash photography, therefore the prints may lighten when used with flash.
Oz Backdrops and Props/Swanky Prints will not offer refunds or replacements on items with a minor colour variation.

Please note that we provide customer photos of backdrops in use on our website to show you the end results that you are able to achieve. Please note that the colours in these images may not reflect the original colour of the backdrop but are achieved through a variety of lighting and editing techniques.

Small Detail Not Recognised

Please note the backdrop will be printed a lot larger than what you see on our website, and more detail will be seen in person. Some backdrops contain details that are very small on screen, but become a little more visible when printed. These details are simply part of the image that create character, texture and shading.
Oz Bacdkrops and Props/Swanky Prints will not offer refunds or replacements on items for small details not recognised.

Sizing

Please note that depending on which size backdrop you select, some cropping or stretching of the display image may occur. To confirm how this may affect your size selection please contact us prior to purchasing. With most of our designs, especially wood and patterns, we can print them smaller or larger depending on your preference. If no preference is stated at time of order it will be printed as per the display image.
Refunds and exchanges are not available if you purchase an incorrect size or if you are unhappy with the cropping/stretching of an image if you did not contact us prior to ordering.

Creasing

On occasion some backdrops may have some creases caused during shipping. Please follow our care instructions in the FAQ section to learn how to reduce or remove creases.
Backdrops over 8ft in length with a pole pocket attached must be rolled in the direction of the pole pocket in order to fit inside a shipping tube, which may cause some creasing to the pole pocket. Lay the backdrop flat and smooth out the creases before hanging. This is unavoidable as we cannot ship items longer than 250cm via courier.

Lighting

Our backdrops are designed to be used with both natural and studio lighting. While all of our backdrops are printed on matte vinyl material, some designs may be more sensitive to certain lighting. Ink saturation on darker prints may require softer lighting for optimal results. If this is a concern, we recommend purchasing lighter designs, or purchasing a sample pack to test out our product. You are welcome to contact us first with any queries prior to purchasing.
When using studio lighting please be aware that you may need to adjust the intensity or placement of your lights so as to achieve the desired results from your backdrop. Fixed lighting in your studio as well as ambient lighting also need to be taken into account as they may affect your results.
A reasonable knowledge of photographic lighting is helpful when determining the best setup for your individual requirements and equipment.
If you would like suggestions on how to get the best results from your backdrop and lighting setup we are happy to help.

Imperfect Backdrops

On occasion we may sell imperfect or seconds backdrops, which are sold at a reduced price due to printing faults such as ink spots, ink runs or scuff marks. These imperfections are usually not visible when photographed, but in some instances may require some digital editing.
Due to constantly varying stock we are unable to provide images of the exact faults, therefore images included on product pages are of the original design. You are welcome to contact us prior to purchase to verify the exact fault.
All imperfect backdrops are advertised as such, and will not be accepted for returns or refunds due to their imperfections.

Dream Drops

Dream Drops are rubber-backed vinyl backdrops designed to be non-slip on most surfaces. We recommend that they are stored either laying flat on the ground, or rolled upright in the tubes they are delivered in with the vinyl on the outside. Correct storage and use of these backdrops is required to maintain the long-term quality of the materials. Do not wet or soak the rubber backing, and avoid placing the backdrop on any sharp objects that may deteriorate the quality of the materials.

Image Licensing

All backdrop designs are licensed images and are prohibited from being reproduced as digital backgrounds or in any other manner. All images are subject to copyright and any infringements will be pursued with legal action.
