What are Replica Surfaces?
Replica Surfaces are hyper-realistic, ultra-thin photography backdrops that replicate real textures like marble, wood, cement, and more.
Do they look real? How high resolution are we talking?
All designs are 300 dpi at printed size of 23 x 23 inches. Go ahead. Get close.
How big are the Surfaces?
Each surface measures 23 x 23 inches square and 3 mm thick. The rigid three-layer construction ensures that Replica Surface are incredibly durable despite their ultra-thin profile.
Can I expect the colors to be exactly as I see them on my screen?
Since monitors and devices display colors differently, actual Surface colors may vary from what you see on your screen. Try viewing on different devices with the screen brightness turned all the way up.
And remember, lighting changes everything. Like with every backdrop, taking photos indoors versus outdoors and in natural light versus artificial light may cause your Surface's coloring to look different from the photos you see here. Luckily, at under 2 lbs, you can move your Surfaces anywhere in pursuit of the light you love. If you have specific questions about design colors, pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are they really stain-resistant?
After testing MANY pigmented cooking materials (red wine, Sriracha, BBQ sauce, etc), we didn't find a single substance that left a permanent stain. Most substances wiped away with a damp cloth. More stubborn pigments required just a spritz of kitchen cleaner.
Now, if you're using paint or other non-food substances, we cannot guarantee the safety of your Surfaces! To be on the safe side, we STRONGLY recommend you test highly pigmented substances (food and non-food) on the backside of your Surface first. We cannot accept returns if you happen to find the first stainable substance. Please see our return/exchange policy for more details.
How durable are Replica Surfaces?
We have done a lot of testing on our Surfaces and they are much more durable than most other backdrops. Our Surfaces are made of a rigid three-layer material that will stand up to normal use and transportation. If anything can damage your Surfaces, however, it's scratch damage. Please be careful when running any pointed edges or heavy objects over the Surfaces as we unfortunately cannot grant refunds or returns if this happens.
What are Replica Stands made from?
Replica Stands are custom-fit to hold any two Replica Surfaces in an L-configuration. No more propping backdrops against awkward objects. The Stand's cutout-corner design ensures Surfaces lie flush against each other without any unsightly gaps. Stands are 3D printed using a blue-gray ABS plastic I like to call "Blue Steel."
Full disclosure: a white-colored adhesive is used to hold Stands in place during the 3D printing process. Occasionally, a small amount of adhesive is incorporated into the plastic itself resulting in permanent small white smudge along the edge. This in no way affects the utility, strength, or general awesomeness of your Stands.
Will Replica Stands hold other non-Replica backdrops?
Replica Stands are custom-fit to hold Replica Surfaces. Because of this, the slots in Replica Stands cannot fit backdrops that are thicker or thinner than a Replica Surface.
How will my order be shipped?
Replica Surfaces ship via UPS ground with a typical shipping time of 2-4 business days. Please allow one additional business day for processing.
Can I order if I live outside the United States?
You sure can! While we aren't currently able to ship internationally through replicasurfaces.com, we ship to over 100 countries via Amazon.com (not country-specific Amazon like .ca or .uk). On Amazon, you'll find our most popular designs (White Marble, Shiplap, and Concrete). The remaining designs and Stands are not available on Amazon for now.
When ordering through Amazon, you'll be responsible for shipping and importing fees. Luckily, Amazon calculates of all that for you!
We are always working to find an economical way to ship worldwide through replicasurfaces.com. But you know how it is: big package = pricey shipping. Make sure you're signed up for the email list so I can keep you posted.
What happens if the package arrives damaged?
We have gone to great lengths to protect your Surfaces during their journey to you. If your Surfaces arrive damaged, please send photos of the damaged Surface and shipping box to email@example.com. We will handle this on a case by case basis.
What if I decide I don't want to keep my Surfaces? Can I send them back?
Sure thing! Just make sure you check out our full return/exchange policy.
Can I use Replica Surfaces to create and sell my own stock photos?
Yes, as long as you modify our designs in some way by adding props to your photo. It is not legal to sell a photograph of a blank Replica Surface as a stock photo.
