Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PACKAGES?

The Basic Package includes Powder Coated Joints, Clear and Corner Clamps, Galvanized Steel Wheel Frames for Movable props, and Blueprints with detailed instructions including cutting lengths. The Premier Package includes everything in the Basic Package AND cut-to-size pipe with snap buttons.  Basic and Premier Packages DO NOT include wheels. If you’re purchasing a backfield prop, you will need to either add on a wheel package or purchase your wheels locally. Our new galvanized steel wheel frame has predrilled holes that accommodate large plates used with 6-8” wheels as well as holes for smaller 4-6” Wheels.  We will supply the screws, washers, and nuts to secure any wheels purchased through Band Today.

 

HOW CAN I PURCHASE THE PIPE MYSELF?

Our Basic packaged require users to purchase pipe locally to save money. Our props are designed to use  1.315  galvanized top rail  pipe available at Lowes, Home Depot, and so on.  We provide detailed instructions including number of pieces of pipe needed to purchase and cutting lengths for all of our basic packages

 

WHAT CAN I DO TO SECURE TO PIPES TOGETHER MORE SECURELY?

NEW!!!  Easy Snap Button Pipe 

Pipe for basic packages will be cut to single longer pieces. Premier packages consist of smaller sections of pipe that are combined to make large props.  During initial construction, joints can be taped together with duct or electrical tape.  After initial assembly time should be taken to drill holes and add snap buttons to the pipe

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POPLIN AND VINYL?

Poplin is a fabric enabling colors to “POP” for a much richer presentation.  Poplin will not bleed, and is machine washable.  If you can afford the extra cost, it’s well worth it. Vinyl is more cost-efficient and is used by bands all over the country.

WHAT IS DYE-SUBLIMATED PRINTING?
Dye-sublimation is a special printing process capable of creating amazingly vivid and sharp full color fabric prints. Specially formulated inks are first printed, in reverse, on to sublimation transfer paper. The paper prints are then pressed together with the target fabric using high heat (around 400°F) and pressure in a specially designed sublimation heat press. During this pressing process, the inks ‘sublimate’ from the paper directly into the fibers of the fabric. As soon as the transfer is complete, the image is completely impregnated into the fabric and can be washed, dried, and ironed without losing quality.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY PROPS?
Once you finalize a design, you’re two weeks out from having your props in hand!

ART SUBMISSION TERMS & CONDITIONS
The preferred method of submitting art files is using our YOU Design Studio. Using this option allows for 1 year of Copyright permission per image. There is no stock image fee for prop orders. There is a $10/stock image fee for flag orders of 10 or less.

 

 

 

 

Images which have been downloaded from the internet are not usually sufficient resolution for print and it could be illegal for Band Today to use them without the proper permissions. Copyright of all images that are sent to Band Today fall upon the purchaser and Band Today is not responsible for copyright research. Clients assume all Copyright responsibility when supplying their own art files for printing.

All images submitted for print should be created using CMYK color space. All RGB files will be converted to CMYK. Non-professional design files are not supported (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Vector files are best and we support all Adobe Creative Cloud applications. When preparing your design, the scale we use is 1 inch = 1 foot @ 300 dpi. Raster images can be used as long as they are a high resolution.

Band Today will not be held responsible for color matching if a sample proof is not ordered before final approval. Colors may vary from computer monitor to mobile device. Therefore, the best way to insure a color match is through the approval of a sample proof.

What is CMYK color mode? CMYK is the color mode used by Band Today to reproduce your design. The color calibration of Cyan (C), Magenta (M), Yellow (Y), and Black (K) determines the final color in your artwork. As a result, your submitted files must be in CMYK color mode to maximize color quality.

If your files are submitted using any other color standard, such as RGB or Pantone, they will be converted to CMYK. Conversion from one color standard to another may cause colors to shift. If you are not familiar with printing in CMYK color mode, we highly recommend that you order a sample proof, which can be selected when you place your order. Please note that we can not guarantee that the color of your artwork printed will match that seen on your monitor or printed via any other method.

When color fidelity is critical, Band Today recommends that you order a proof before final approval of your artwork.
