DREAM WORLD EVENTS, INC. RENTAL AGREEMENT
Dream World Backdrops polyester fabric backdrops are very expensive to produce and any damage and repairs could prove costly. If the backdrop material is damaged or handled without care, significant cost to repair and clean can accrue. If our company has to send the backdrop to our factory to repair the charge to your company will be a minimum cost of $60.00 per hour plus the cost for replacing material. The canvas and paint costs are approximately $25.00-$55.00 per square foot.
If the backdrop is handled carefully the chances of any damage occurring is minimal. In order to reduce the incidence of damage, it is recommended that only experienced personnel handle the backdrop and take note of the following: When unfolding and hanging the backdrop, the floor area must be clean and dry. Avoid the backdrops from getting wet or used in adverse climate conditions. If your company is aware of the procedures, the backdrops will remain in good condition and prevent your company being subjected to unnecessary costs to repair the backdrops.
