Vinyl is great for wallpaper, outdoor signs and banners, but you can not produce the same image quality print as prints on photographic paper. Trackside scenery backdrops are printed on high quality photographic papers.
All Trackside Scenery backdrops and print products are printed on professional matte finish photographic papers. These are the same papers that you would find throughout the fine art print industry and are used in museums and professional displays. Trackside Scenery backdrops have been carefully designed to deliver a realistic scene on a low glare true matte finish. Trackside Scenery standard print version is of a heavy weight coated design and is sufficiently scratch resistant as well as being somewhat light water resistant. This premium paper is 7 mil thick and is fairly durable. Trackside Scenery adhesive backed version is of a heavy weight coated design with the same characteristics as the standard paper but comes with a permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive backing.
With care and attention - installing your backdrop is very easy. Whether you are using our standard offering of premium quality professional photographic matte finished prints or our premium quality professional matte finish prints with adhesive backing, installing your backdrops can be a very easy and a rewarding process.
Trackside Scenery has spent more than one year researching to find an adhesive backed product version that would meet their strict standard of providing true realistic print quality in a absolute matte finish. This product is now offered to all customers.
The idea of adhesive backing is a great concept and it can create a shortcut in the installation process when care and attention are are used. Unfortunately, pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA's) leave less room for error and work similar to that of a postage stamp. Once it is applied, there is less chance that you can adjust the print. This is an especially critical consideration when working with prints of long lengths.
Trackside Scenery and Strike Force Hobbies are not responsible for your installation methods. Remember, a backdrop is a model too! Treat it just like you would with a precious model related project
