What are those “twinky star curtain” things I keep seeing?

14Nov13

With so many companies and brands these days active on social media and with pinterest you may of come across some rather interesting products which you may not be aware of what they are called or how to source them.

Having had our starcloth range for a number of years now I’m only fully aware of the range of descriptions I’ve heard for these such as “twinky light cloth”, “starcurtain”, “fairy cloth” and “LED backdrop”. With this in mind I’m aiming to let you know what each  product is called , what it can do and how to decide which one is right for you.

Starcloths are commonly booked for either providing a backdrop to a top table/evening entertainment or as part of a room “blackout” where we might be sectioning off areas. Now for the various types of starcloths

Firstly we provide two main types of black backdrops with LED lights in. We have a budget cloth which houses white LEDs in them and is made from a flame resistant cloth which has a shiny look to it (also it’s impossible to iron or steam so creases are visible). They can be left on static (no fading or “twinkling”) or set to several present “chase patterns” which vary in degree in fading, speed and effect.

We also provide a higher standard of black starcloth which houses light blue LEDs and because of the higher grade looks much neater in bright light situations. These are commonly referred to as theatrical grade starcloths. I personally think these are much better cloths than our budget ones and can be set to match what other cloths are doing when sent to a “chase pattern”.

If the black cloth doesn’t really fit in with your event, particularly with a wedding then we have some other cloths which are more in keeping with that.

Our “plain white LED starcloth” is rather limited in terms of what you can do with the LEDs however if you’re looking for a static effect then these are perfect for that function.

Ivory starcloths are currently the most popular choice for our current clients and these are slightly different in the fact they are fibre optic lights rather than LED. The high grade of cloth with swags makes this perfect for placing behind the top table at a wedding or again behind your chosen evening entertainment.

With Ivory you can easily match the backdrop with a top table skirt or even the cake table.

Hopefully now you’ll know a bit more about some of the starclothing options out there (which we just happen to provide). We’re constantly adding photos of recent events to our facebook page and also to our website.

Please do let me know your thoughts on this piece be it good or bad 🙂
