A simple design yet one you can customise, this Chalkboard Backdrop is great for so many different photo opportunities.

The backdrop shows a wood floor backed by a chalkboard which you can use a chalk pen to write your own messages on before taking a photo. This allows you to customise your photos for weddings, birthdays or even to highlight parts of your cake for tutorials. 

PLEASE NOTE: We only recommend chalk pens to write on the backdrop. Other pens may not wipe clean off.

All of our backdrops are printed in vibrant, high definition colour, so you can be sure that you will get the very best photo possible when snapping pictures of your cake masterpiece.

For larger cakes, the backdrop can be taped or pinned to a wall and your cake placed in front or for small treats, why not take a photo looking down on the backdrop or at a unique angle? 

This backdrop is perfect for those creating a portfolio of different cakes they have made. It adds a professional finish and will make your cakes stand out from the standard, run of the mill pictures you see all the time. Your photos will also make for great posts on Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms so all your friends, family and followers know what you have been busy creating.

This backdrop  is made from top quality vinyl and printed with eco solvent inks. It has a white border so you can use the maximum amount of backdrop for your photo.

To get the best photos, we would recommend taking your photo in an area that has lots of natural light. Soft light can be found in areas of open shade, such as window light.

To avoid getting shadows when photographing your treats, use a large piece of white paper or card as a reflector on the opposite side to the light source.

You may occasionally get a slight crease or wrinkle in your backdrop but have no fear, this is easily fixed.

Simply lay your backdrop out on a flat surface with the print side down and place a damp towel over the top. With the iron on a medium setting and NO steam, carefully iron over the wrinkle until it is gone.

To help prevent creases, roll the backdrop and store it in the tube it arrives in.

Backdrop sizes:

Large: 135cm x 90cm - Suitable for boards 12" and above and 4 tier cakes and above.

Medium: 98cm x 65cm - Suitable for boards up to 12" and up to 3 tier cakes.

Cupcake: 50cm x 33cm - Suitable for cupcakes, cookies and other small treats.

Spring Bank Holiday 2020

Our Warehouse Heroes will be working over the Bank Holiday so your orders will still be picked and packed but we will NOT have a mail collection until Tuesday 26th May. Please be aware that this will affect deliveries placed w/c 18th May and w/c 25th May.

*Delivery Delays*

To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.

Our couriers tell us that they are experiencing very large delivery volumes (akin to Black Friday levels) as everyone is now restricted to shopping online.

This means you should expect around 48 hours added to standard delivery times.
90 - 98% of Next Day deliveries are arriving on time. 

Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
