If you plan to use the backdrops side-by-side and need the two individual backdrops to match exactly, we recommend purchasing them at the same time. This ensures the fabric comes from the same dye lot. When purchased at different times, some variances in the color will occur. This is also true for printed backdrops, as different printers will print slightly differently. The only way to ensure the backdrops match exactly is to have the backdrops printed on the same material, at the same time, on the same printer.
