How it all began....
In March of 2010 I was looking for alternatives for my mobile studio. I wanted something to use a "floor" instead of plain old muslin fabric. I tried all kinds of rugs and mats and nothing worked for the look I was trying to achieve. I stopped in my sister's print shop and asked her to print some old barn wood I'd taken images of on the vinyl she used for banners and signs. The idea was genius! It came out exactly how I was imagining AND it was waterproof! I used it the very next day for my portrait shoot and I loved it! I posted a sneak peek for my clients on my facebook photography page and I never dreamed that my fellow photography friends would ask if I planned on selling them. I hadn't entertained the idea but thought 'why not???'
I worked on the concept with my sister and decided that if there was a real interest I'd be more than happy to sell them to my friends. I had been downsized from my corporate job after 9 years and I had nothing but time on my hands to dream up this little dream.
A few days later, on March 17, 2010, I created a Facebook page for the business and it BLEW UP more than I could have ever imagined! There was absolutely NOTHING like this concept/product out there on the market for photographers. People were EXCITED! "Custom printed designs" didn't exist - especially on materials like vinyl or poly paper which was a whole new concept for those used to plain fabrics/muslin/hand painted backdrops. So, with this "bright" idea - Photo Prop Floors & Backdrops was created. Many lessons were learned as the business progressed and new concepts were added daily! Thanks to this "little" idea the 'backdrop' industry is now thriving and I'm proud to say I created the concept.
I have poured my heart into this business for years....creating designs, streamlining policies, procedures, and networking with other businesses and the photography community. In the beginning days turned to weeks, weeks turned to months and now it's been 12 years since the creation of Photo Prop Floors & Backdrops. I have an amazing and dedicated team, over 18,000+ products available, and exclusive partnerships with amazing designers for our custom printed backdrops & floordrops. The business was broadened with posing fabric, Newborn Mini Drops, digital downloads, and a side accessories shopwww.etsy.com/shop/KawaiiPrintsByJen with leggings, dresses, joggers, shorts, swim suits, tank tops, phone cases, pillows, & more! We have 8 different materials for printed drops and floors, solid matte fabrics and sequins!
