Company immediately signs agreement to provide Scrim King wall-panels at high profile Grammys after-party

Los Angeles, California – The Scrim King revealed a new Scrim Backdrop product at the recently completed NAMM 2015 show, held January 22-25 in Anaheim, California. Available in both square/diamond and circular options, the modular product was universally acclaimed for it’s versatility, beauty, and impact.

“The response to our new Scrim Backdrop product at the NAMM show was incredible,” said Gabriel Foltys, Scrim King Founder. “This is a product that stands out for its versatility, ease of transport, simple set-up, and stunning visual characteristics.”

SS-PNL22 2The Scrim Backdrop was on display in all its forms at the NAMM show – available as plain fabric, integrated into a musical performance through video projection mapping, and as a ‘step & repeat’ photo backdrop with imprinted logos.

It was the last option selected by the producers of an exclusive Grammy after- party for Taylor Swift’s Big Machine Label Group and Revolution Records. The organizers elected to dispense with the normal ‘step & repeat’ photo background to provide something new and exciting. Enter Scrim King…

“We had constructed a backdrop wall at our NAMM booth featuring the Scrim King logo imprinted on a selection of the fabric squares,” explains Foltys. “This caught the eye of the organizers, who asked if a custom piece could be made to serve as a red-carpet photo backdrop. The timeline was extremely tight, but there is nothing Scrim King can’t do, and we were excited to be involved with the project.

Scrim King is now excited to be able to offer the Scrim Backdrop, with or without embedded logos to its customers across the globe.screen

The Scrim King Square Wall Panel consists of 2”x 2” squares creating a grid like platform that can be used as a staging background or to display front and rear projection for video mapping. Use a a “Step & Repeat” backdrop is another innovative application for the wall paneling that was premiered at the NAMM show 2015. Sold as a 4 pack, 16 squares create a 10’ x 10’ backdrop when stretched.

“Clients can create their own framing created using readily available third-party trussing, pipe and drape framing,” said Foltys. “Or, you can be creative and devise your own framing. As long as there is a stretch point, you are good to go.”
