They’re also double-sewn onto each edge for durability and security once they’re in place. Ensure that hands are thoroughly cleaned, or covered with nitrile gloves, to prevent natural oils from transferring to your spandex panels. Once you’re prepared we recommend using a clean tarp, painter’s plastic, or an alternate clean and smooth surface, to lay out larger shapes to keep them clean if it touches the ground during the hanging process.
Cleaning:Our spandex stretch shapes can be machine washed in cool water with Oxi Clean or any gentle, bleach-free detergent. High heat and extended exposure to heat can have negative effects on the shape, take care to tumble dry on the lowest heat setting in your dryer (keep in mind your shape will dry fairly quickly). You’ll want to remove them from the dryer as quickly as possible to avoid wrinkles from setting in. Small stains can be removed easily with a damp cloth and small amount of clear soap, pat dry after spot cleaning to avoid any possible discoloration. They can also be hand washed using luke-warm water and Oxi Clean, and air-dried on a flat clean surface. DO NOT: Dry clean, use bleach, or use an iron or any high heat products.Storing:Spandex stretch shapes are very easy to store as they can fold down to a small size, and have the bonus of being wrinkle-resistant and anti-microbial. Ensure all hardware and mounting materials (hooks, lines, strings, etc.) are removed from hanging points before folding as normal. Store shapes in smooth, sealed bag to keep dry and prevent fabric snagging. We offer clear vinyl carry bags to ensure your spandex stays completely dry and clean during travel or long-term storage, a synthetic fabric bag can also be used. Rolling your shapes snugly onto a polished cardboard tube can eliminate any possibility of wrinkling during short-term storage.

Hanging your Sails:
Temporary Install:Screw-in Cup/Open-Eye HooksEnsure hands are covered with gloves! First, you’ll map out where you want your edges to fall in your design and simply pencil mark each area. If you have a few people to help, have them stretch each edge to the desired spot and pencil mark that spot. Simply screw in the hooks and attach each elastic loop mount located on the edges to those hooks and you’re all set! Permanent setup:
Invisible test line (Mono Filament Line) OR Metal Turnbuckle (Hook-Hook)Marine Grade Pad EyeHeavy Duty Snap Hook or CarabinerEnsure hands are covered with gloves! After mapping out exactly where you want your edges to fall in your design, have 3-4 people help stretch out your sail to full-tension and pencil mark the spot (Mark 1). If you won’t have help, it’s worth using screw-in cup hooks to temporarily hold each edge in place. The edges will ultimately be attached to the turnbuckle for long-term adjusting, so you’ll unscrew the turnbuckle to half its length and then place it horizontally next to the full tension mark, leave a mark at the opposite edge of the hook (Mark 2). There should now be 2 pencil marks: one next to each side your turnbuckle hooks.Install your metal pads at Mark 2 and hang a turnbuckle on each pad once finished. Now you’ll attach a snap hook to each elastic mounting loop on your sail, and then simply attach each snap hook to their corresponding turnbuckle and you’re set!If your sail is drooping in the center then you’ll want to unhook the elastic loop from the turnbuckle, and then turn the buckle clockwise to shorten it and create more tension. If you see distracting lines throughout the panel, then you’ll want to turn the buckles counterclockwise to loosen up the tension as needed.
Lighting your Sails:Once your panels are installed in place, you can use either of the recommended LED lights below to take your event to the next level. You can choose sails in either of our 20 colors and illuminate them with a simple white LED light to make them pop. For more creative illusions, it’s a good idea to choose white shapes so the color scheme can be controlled completely by your LED lights and changed at any time or for any event.
The most common light placement will be stationed on the ground, one behind each panel, or one in the center of an overlapping panel design. Most affordable non-rotating lights will not have a beam angle wide enough to span the entire width of a multi-sail panel design, so we recommend investing in more than one in order to cast an even light over the surface of your sails. PAR and rotating lights are an exception as the design can move across the panels and cover the span evenly.Correct placement of the lights is fairly simple: you’ll want to ensure you have at least 5 feet of space behind your panels to move the light back and forth to find the perfect distance. If you’re working with a small amount of space you can angle the panels slightly towards the audience, and tilt your light upwards at a range of 60-80 degrees in order to allow illumination to show from bottom to top. The light effects may be sharp at the bottom and cast a large, soft illusion to the top of the shape.
Tilting the shape towards the light will allow the illusion to be concentrated towards the center-bottom of the shape only. Play with the distance and tilt, of both the light and the panel, to achieve the desired illusion you’re looking for. Be sure to bring Gaffer’s tape to keep any floor lights in place.
Video projectors used on our spandex backdrops can be placed either in front or behind, the screen although we do recommend keeping the projector level with the center of the backdrop.
Recommended LED Lights:LED Strip Wash Lights typically have one straight row displaying 2-4 different colors simultaneously. Higher-priced options will have a higher light output and the ability to customize lighting and strobing effects, while lower priced options will provide a static display of 2-4 colors.LED PAR Lights are rounded strobes that typically display the full-color spectrum (ROYGBIV) individually. Lighting effects can be manipulated even on lowest priced PAR lights, while a higher priced option will give even more colors and a greater light output.Gobo (Patterns) are used to project logos, simple messages, or any common or custom pattern that you’d like to match your event. They are light filter discs made from steel, glass, or plastic that have cut-out shapes or lettering etched into them. They attach directly to the front of any light or PAR light to project a pattern or message across your stretch shape or spandex backdrop/screen, such as a bride and groom’s names at a wedding reception. They can also be attached to a gobo rotator to add exciting pattern movements throughout the venue, or centered directly on your spandex shape to make them a main point of view.
