How To Build A Stage Stand For Your Band Scrims Or Stage Backdrop


Buying a stage scrim is a great first step to building your band’s identity. Now, you can easily set up your stage backdrop or scrim by following NorthcoastBanners simple video. For about $15 in PVC piping, you’ll have your stage banners and band scrims set up in minutes.

6’x6′ Stage Stand

Tools Needed:

  • Hacksaw
  • Sharpie Marker

Materials for the Stage Stand**:

  • 4 – 1″ x 10′ PVC Pipe
  • 2 – 1″ 90 Degree Elbow Joints
  • 4 – 1″ Tee Joints

**For two stands just double the quantity of the materials.

Costs for Stage Stand Materials

Costs for everything is around $15 from your local hardware store

Cut PVC Pipe to the Following Lengths:

  • 2 – 6’2″ (74″) * Top and Bottom
  • 2 – 5’7.5″ (67.5″) * Sides
  • 2 – 7″
  • 4 – 12″

**For different size banners, add 2″ to your banner’s width for the top and bottom poles, and subtract 4.5″ from the banner’s height for the vertical poles; this is to accommodate for elbow and tee joints. These dimensions may be slightly different for you depending on your materials.

Assembly Process for the Stage Stand:

  1. Assemble feet first, followed by attaching the side poles (67.5″ Lengths) to the feet.
  2. Slide the top and bottom poles (74″ Lengths) through the pole pockets on your stage scrim and then attach to the sides.

Stage Stands Outdoors:

For outdoor uses, we recommend placing sand bags or some sort of weight at the bottom of the feet for added stability.

Stage Scrims That Look Great At Outdoor Shows

Stage scrims look great indoors in small clubs and bars. In fact, a well-designed band scrim can make for a great stage backdrop or scrim even in a large outdoor venue. Here’s some tips for buying stage and band scrims.

1. Consider your budget

For new and up and coming bands, it’s important to consider your budget before you make any investment. It can be tough starting out, so that’s why we created a Touring Band Special on our band scrims – click here to learn more about the specials. 6’x6′ is our most popular size for stage scrims, and they look great on stage.

2. Prepare your design before you buy a stage banner

Take the time work with a good graphic designer on our band scrim design. Make sure your logo or artwork for your stage backdrop contrasts sharply so that your colors POP. We have some great tips for designing a banner.

3. Buy the right size stage backdrop or scrim

It’s critical to consider how you will use your stage backdrops or band scrims. Do you play indoors mostly, at bars and nightclubs? Or does your band get a lot of outdoor shows at festivals? Think about how much space you’ll have on the stage to set up your stage backdrop, and how you will hang the stage banner.

Here’s some great photos of stage scrims being used indoors and outdoors.
