After graduation in 2007, Kate’s founder——David got into foreign trade and cross-border online shopping for the first time.David loves photography, and he often selected and purchased photographic apparatus and accessories on those oversea shopping sites. During the period, he found that backdrop is a good photographic equipment. Through investigation analysis, David eventually confirmed that photography backdrops would have broad market prospects, while there was few backdrop brands that could provide user-friendly and cost-effective products at that time. Under the circumstance, David decided to enter the backdrop market and embarked upon the long journey to find suppliers.
At the end of 2012, David finally chose a textiles factory after searching and comparison with caution. The vinyl cloth produced by this factory is regarded as the ideal raw material of backdrops.
The 1st Products Upgrade
Early in 2013, David took the idea into practice and create a brand, which was named after his lover Kate. At that time, however, the characteristics of vinyl makes products fail to meet the customers’ requirements. David sincerely sought advice from customers, compared various fabrics over and over again, and found the microfiber fabric at last. This kind of cloth is thick and soft, wrinkle-resistant compared to the vinyl cloth, but costs more on printing.
After several failures on the experiment, David got his eye on heat transfer printing technology, which was initially intended to produce pillows and he tried to apply this to microfiber fabric printing.This attempt perfectly solved the traditional problem of high printing cost, and was also marked the first iterations of Kate’s productions. It is, assuredly, a unique, original achievement belonging to Kate backdrop.
The truth is, the decision that using microfiber fabric as the raw material instead of vinyl cloth nearly double the cost, and once caused a rise in prices. Many consumers who were accustomed to vinyl backdrops chose to leave, while David still insisted to practice the decision in order to improve the quality of products.
The 2nd Products Upgrade
By the year of 2016, our factory could only manufactured small-sized backdrops, while large-sized ones needed stitch. With the expansion of our customer base and reinforcement of our brand’s popularity, David purchased a batch of advanced equipment that can produce 3 meters wide seamless backdrops. Based on that, customers gave more feedback and hope that there could be a pocket on the top of the backdrop to make it easy to hang. During the fieldwork in the factory for meeting this requirement, David observed that seamless backdrops were difficult to perfectly cut, which could lead to noticeably uneven edges. After learning the situation, David released precise instruction that every Kate backdrop must be produced with hems and a pocket on it. This move was regarded as developing a new industry standard.
In 2018, David had already clarified the brand mission of Kate backdrop. Kate starts its journey from backdrops, and aspires to offer attentive one-step services on photography——from professional consulting, equipment supply, post production, photo printing and so on. Our mission is to remove all obstacles on your road of photography.
On 15 October, two years after the establishment of brand, David proposed to the love of his life——Kate. In order to commemorate the day, he designated this day as ‘Kate Day’ and sincerely hope to celebrate this day with all our customers.
I LOVE this backdrop! I’ve ordered vinyl ones in the past and could never get all the wrinkles out. I threw this in the dryer with a damp towel to get the wrinkles out after openeingt (I dislike ironing), and it worked perfectly! The material feels velvety. The quality is fantastic! I’m never going back to vinyl backdrops.
Revived a replacement backdrop and it was awesome! Perfect in every way. Hung straight, wrinkles came right out, non reflective, and perfect for live FB videos and professional protography. The customer service was excellent. Will definitely be doing business with them again!
I was looking for backdrops NOT made of vinyl because the creases are almost impossible to clean out, even in post production. Kate Backdrops are made of microfiber, which means they are washable and iron-able! When they (I bought two) came out of the box, they have creases, naturally, since they were folded into boxes. They were super easy to take out with my steamer (I try not to iron my clothes; steaming is better for cloth).
I am a teacher who suddenly found video conferencing put her shabby little home on display for all her students and colleagues. Hanging this photo backdrop up gave my background some interest and made the wall behind me look modern and chic. It was so much cheaper than a renovation and not as corny as using one of the zoom app green screen backgrounds.
Love this backdrop.. It came right out of the bag without wrinkles, the material is nice quality and it looks exactly as described. I was able to take it out of the package and hang it for use. I'm using this as a backdrop to do my videos for my business and it's perfect.
I purchased this backdrop for Facebook live videos and it’s perfect. I don’t have the tripods to hold it but I have a drop ceiling in the basement where I record so I added some 3m hooks to the ceiling framing, added grommets to this backdrop, and hang it that way. Looks amazing! It took some light ironing to remove the wrinkles and I actually cut it down to size as well with no fraying. I would definitely recommend this backdrop for photos and/or videos.
Was disappointed when it arrived bc it’s like a giant beach towel. It feels like felt or something. Not a paper backdrop like expected. I almost returned it but I didn’t. We got some great shots with it and I’ll definitely use it again in the future. You definitely need it on an adjustable stand bc the high would not be tall enough for adults.
Wow!! I cannot compliment this backdrop enough!!!! I typically use vinyl, but ordered the 20x10 white wood cloth backdrop for use at a large group photo session.
The colour didn’t arrive white as in the photo, it almost has a yellow hue. Even with test shots you can tell it’s not white. Thickness is nice.
Not a fan. It doesn't look much like the photo. I tried using it but its just not what im looking for in colour. Its much more brown. I knew it was cotton before it came but it personally does not look great as a backdrop/floor drop
This backdrop is amazin! I followed the instructions and it took all the wrinkles out! Its a nice fabric, not like other vinyl backdrops! Really recommend it! And the ahipping was very fast!
Doesn’t look like it does in the picture. Doesn’t photograph looking like it’s real wood.
Love the feel of the fabric, it was unexpected. Easy to iron and keep. thanks.
Great backdrop but it is boarderline transparent - and fuzzy
Toile en tissus vraiment mauvais achat
Big and gorgeous and beautiful!
