What Size of Backdrops Should I Choose?

We offer backdrops with any size and we provide custom backdrops. There is no limit to the size range.

Only a few of the common dimensions are shown on the site, ranging from 3ft wide all the way to 20ft wide.

If you don't know how to choose your backdrops size, please read the guide below:

  • Full-body or waist-up?

You are planning to take full-body portraits, make sure to use a rubber floor mat to match the background. Or you will need a backdrop that is long enough to extend onto the floor, we also have many backdrops including the floor that help save your budget.

This backdrop is 10x10ft, it took a full-body picture of the model with some props to make the photo more retro style!

We want to recommend some backdrops to you, such as the abstract backdrops, there’s nothing more timeless than a textured backdrop and wood backdrop, our faux wood fabric backdrops are a must-have for any rustic-loving photographer.

Our rubber floor mat have 4x5ft(1.2x1.5m) and 5x8ft(1.5x2.5m).

  • How big is your studio space?

We recommend measuring the space where you plan to use the backdrop, especially if it is for an event. It can be frustrating to show up on the day of an event, only to realize your backdrop is too big (or too small) for your venue.

For the children,7x5ft will be okay! This size will not take up a lot of space if your studio is small. Birthday and cake smash backdrops are also a good choice for children.




  • How many people do you plan to photograph?

 1-2 People = 5-8ft wide
 2-4 People = 6.5ft-10ft wide
 4+ People = 10ft wide
 Extra Large Groups = 20ft
 Big Event= Custom bigger wide 

 If you want to shoot a photograph for dancing,10 ft wide is necessary,like the following photo:

For some family photography or holiday session, from snowy scenes to traditional Christmas backdrops, we have the holiday backdrop to suit any photo session you may have!

Please read our size description.

All backdrop sizes are listed width by height, if the backdrop you choose is in horizontal version, then the larger number is the width of the size, if it is in vertical version, then the smaller number is the width of the size.
