How to use Twistflex Backdrops?
Twistflex backdrops can fold down to 1/3rd of their original size in a collapsible backdrop kit. Although this process of opening and folding the backdrop is no rocket science, a few points can improve the lifespan of your backdrops.
Your backdrop pops open the moment you take it out of the kit. This can be mounted vertically or horizontally from a stand, hook or can simply be fixed to furniture with clamps. If you are getting a stand for Twistflex backdrops, it is already equipped with a tight clip on the top.
Clearly, setting up the backdrop is an easy task. However, the folding part can get a little tricky. For this, you need to hold the backdrop in front of you with your hands on each side and fold it inwards, making a V shape. Further closing the V gap, make the two ends of the backdrop meet. Then, while holding the backdrop still, allow the bottom to come in towards you. Finally, keeping your hands on the top of the backdrop, follow the collapsing action downward. You can then store it in its complementary bag. Try to fold the backdrop on different sides after each use for avoiding any permanent stretch on the frame.
