What are Medium Photo Backdrop Boards?

Medium Photo Backdrop Boards are high-resolution photography backdrops printed on rugged PVC. Medium Photo Backdrop Boards add true-to-life background texture to product, lifestyle, and food photography, without any of the hassle of do-it-yourself backdrops.

Just how high is “high-resolution”?

All designs are 300 dpi at printed size (28 x 22 in). Go ahead. Get close.

How big is each board?

Each board measures 71 x 56 x 0.5 cm (approximately 28 x 22 x 1/5 in) and weighs just a touch over 2 lbs. We think it's the perfect size.

Can I use Medium Photo Backdrop Boards on any surface?

Absolutely. Unlike vinyl backdrops which curl and bend, Medium Photo Backdrop Boards lay completely flat when placed on the floor, on a stool, outdoors - wherever you find the best light. Try leaning a second Medium Photo Backdrop Board against a wall or upright surface to create a textured "wall" behind your scene. No clips or tape needed. 

Will Medium Photo Backdrop Boards stain?

Food bloggers love Medium Photo Backdrop Boards because of how easy they are to wipe clean! We even "food-tested" each design by splattering them with red wine, coffee, and barbecue sauce, and everything wiped off with a dry cloth.


Why would I choose Medium Styling Boards over vinyl backdrops or making my own backdrops?

Vinyl backdrops wrinkle and curl and can’t be used on uneven surfaces. They also usually  look less-than-realistic when photographed close-up. Don’t get me wrong, vinyl backdrops have their place - it just isn't in most product and lifestyle photography. 

Making your own photo backdrops requires multiple pricey materials (wood, paint, nails, brushes), trips to Lowe's, and skill/time that most of us don't have. Medium Photo Backdrop Boards just require opening a shipping box. Your pick.

Do you ship outside the US?

Right now we only ship to the continental US, but Medium Photo Backdrop Boards will soon be available internationally. Join the email list and we'll keep you posted.

I changed my mind. Can I return my board for a refund?

Sure can. Return the board in its original condition for a full refund of the purchase price. Shipping costs for returning a board are your responsibility and will not be paid by Medium.

Is Medium responsible for any damage incurred during shipping?

Nope. All Medium Photo Backdrop Boards have been double-inspected for perfection (once at the factory and again at the warehouse). We also do everything we can to ensure safe delivery, including a custom protective shipping box designed just for us. We are therefore not responsible for any loss or damage incurred during the shipping process.


Can I use Medium Photo Backdrop Boards to create and sell my own stock photos?

Yes, as long as you modify the designs in some way, either digitally or by photographing real objects on the boards. It is not legal to sell a photograph of a blank Medium Board as a stock photo.
