Why are Photo ID Backdrops Important?

An important (and often forgotten) element of an ID badge photo is the background. A photo backdrop system is a quick Photo ID Backdropsway to set up a make-shift “photo studio” and ensure consistent and professional-looking ID photos.

We’ve all seen it: the student standing in the office waiting for a photo to be taken for his school ID…or the employee standing in front a non-descript wall knowing the glare from the flash on the wall will stand out more than the photo itself.

So how can you overcome this all-too-familiar scenario? How can you make a 1-inch or 2-inch square photo more interesting and more reflective of what the person actually looks like in real life? How can you give ID photos a softer, cleaner look with dimension?

A properly chosen photo ID backdrop will provide the answer to these questions. Photo backdrops come in a variety of materials, sizes, and colors which provides the options you need to create your desired outcome. Backdrops are also available in a variety of styles including:

  • wall-mounted
  • free-standing (stand-alone)
  • pull-down

For example, check our Photo ID Backdrop System; it includes a full-size backdrop and an adjustable stand for varying heights. Available in a variety of popular colors, it’s made of wrinkle-resistant nylon microsuede material for adding a smooth, professional look to photos. It easily attaches to the included stand with velcro to ensure a tight fit. The metal stand adjusts from 28” to 78” high to accommodate sitting or standing poses.

Nearly every week, one of my customers tells me they want to make a better-looking photo ID card. This process most often begins with a card design update and a much-improved photo. A photo backdrop is at the heart of the solution.
