Step and Repeat LA FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
A step and repeat banner is a backdrop display that has one or more sponsor logos repeated in a step or diagonal alternating pattern.
The purpose of a step and repeat backdrop is to emphasize a brand name, company logo or sports team name during media press conferences, red carpet events and special events. The step and repeat backdrop banner is designed for photo opportunities.
“Step-and-repeat” comes from the photoshop term used for the process of duplicating an object and spacing.
