Description of HH-01The Woods - Hickory Hollow Series Repeater
As a member of the Hickory Hollow Series (HH), this backdrop features a trackside view of a level wooded tree line with a steep hill rising up to daylight skies. The perspective is based on a low to mid tree line view point. This style is a repeater image for expandability and may be used with multiples of itself in any length provided you select the same scale and height. This style may also be used to expand with other styles in the same series. All HH- part number backdrops can be used interchangeably with each other on either side of each other (e.g. HH-01 + HH-02, H-03 etc) provided you select the same scale and height for all prints. Length is not a consideration in repeating prints. Various lengths are made available for each style only to accommodate an overall backdrop series you create without a need to cut long prints such as a 96" long image to fit your needs.

This is NOT vinyl and NOT wallpaper!
Vinyl is great for wallpaper, outdoor signs and banners, but you can not produce the same image quality print as prints on photographic paper. Trackside scenery backdrops are printed on high quality photographic papers.
Our Photographic Print Products
All Trackside Scenery backdrops and print products are printed on professional matte finish photographic papers. These are the same papers that you would find throughout the fine art print industry and are used in museums and professional displays. Our backdrops have been carefully designed to deliver a realistic scene on a low glare true matte finish.
Our standard print version is of a heavy weight coated design and is sufficiently scratch resistant as well as being somewhat light water resistant. This premium paper is 7 mil thick and is fairly durable. Our adhesive backed version is of a heavy weight coated design with the same characteristics as the standard paper but comes with a permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive backing.
Standard Print vs. Adhesive Backing
With care and attention - installing your backdrop is very easy. Whether you are using our standard offering of premium quality professional photographic matte finished prints or our premium quality professional matte finish prints with adhesive backing, installing your backdrops can be a very easy and rewarding process.
We spent more than one year researching to find an adhesive backed product version that would meet our strict standard of providing true realistic print quality in a absolute matte finish. We can now offer this new product to our customers.
The idea of adhesive backing is a great concept and it can create a shortcut in the installation process when care and attention are are used. Unfortunately, pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA's) leave less room for error and work similar to that of a postage stamp. Once it is applied, there is less chance that you can adjust the print. This is an especially critical consideration when working with prints of long lengths. Trackside Scenery is not responsible for your installation methods. Remember, a backdrop is a model too! Treat it just like you would with a precious model related project
