What is a Press Wall?

A press wall, often interchangeably known as a step and repeat wall or photo wall, is a large backdrop banner that is used at various types of events to prominently display logos, brand names, or event sponsors.

These displays have traditionally been used to serve as a visually appealing background for photographs taken during events, particularly in situations where celebrities, influencers, or guests of honor are being photographed.

The term “step and repeat” first originated from the traditional practice where individuals would step onto a designated spot in front of the wall, have their photos taken, and then step aside for the next person, creating a repeating pattern.


While these display walls have been staples at red carpet events, premieres, award shows, and various upscale gatherings, more recently they’ve become increasingly popular in more mainstream environments as well.

From family gatherings to local business promotions, the concept of an appealing and themed wall display has evolved beyond the entertainment industry.

Now, press walls can often be seen as elements of fun at wedding receptions, family reunions, and at store and restaurant grand openings where the goal is to bring people together and give them an opportunity to celebrate and memorialize an event.

The Growing Trend Toward Seasonal Displays

As the use of press walls has branched out past the red carpet, there has been a noticeable surge in using these fun and festive backdrops for seasonal displays, a trend embraced by local businesses like restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, and entertainment venues.

These versatile walls have found a new purpose as so many local businesses have seen the potential in seasonal press walls when it comes to enhancing their visual presence, engaging their customers, and creating immersive experiences aligned with the spirit of each season.

This evolution underscores a shift from traditional uses, demonstrating the adaptability of press walls to cater to the diverse branding needs of businesses in a variety of sectors.


Let’s look at how your business can incorporate a press wall into your seasonal or holiday decorations.

All About Autumn: Rustic Tones and Harvest Elements

As the crisp autumn air sets in and “sweater weather” becomes a thing, businesses of all sorts can infuse their environments with the warm, rustic tones and harvest elements characteristic of fall.

Transforming a press wall into a canvas of earthy hues not only aligns with the season but also creates a cozy and inviting ambiance for customers to enjoy.

Imagine a backdrop adorned with rich shades of amber, burnt orange, and deep reds, complemented by rustic items like bales of hay and large pumpkins surrounding it.


To amplify the seasonal experience, make sure that your press wall is photo-friendly, and encourage your patrons and potential customers to stop and snap a social-media-worthy photo in front of it (with your store or restaurant’s names clearly in the background!)

These types of interactive press wall designs will not only set the stage for delightful photos but also invites customers to capture and share the essence of their fall festivities, creating a memorable and shareable experience.>

Winter Wonderland: Tis the Season for Family, Friends, and All Things Bright

Anyone in the retail business knows that the winter holidays are an important time to make sure that your storefront is as appealing and inviting as possible to customers.

This is a time of year when your press wall can really shine.

Whether you choose to stick with winter season elements like snowy landscapes or focus more on the holiday spirit with Christmas and/or Hanukkah decor, your press wall backdrop can really bring the festive feeling of the season to your customers and passers-by alike.

Winter-themed press walls create a magical and festive atmosphere that resonates with the celebratory mood of the season, drawing people in and giving them a reason to want to explore what else you have in store.


A winter press wall can also provide an excellent photo opportunity and can be a great place for your patrons to snap a group photo that is worthy of being put front and center on this year’s holiday card.

Spring into Life: Floral Delights and Pastel Hues

As winter finally bids its last farewell, spring emerges with its promise of warmth, blossoms, and rejuvenation.

And, for most of us, not a moment too soon!

Spring is a great time for retailers and restaurants to capture the long-awaited essence of this season’s vibrancy by incorporating floral delights and pastel hues into your press walls.

This is a time that’s all about rebirth, renewal, and rejuvenation and a well-designed press wall can capture all of that. Spring-themed press walls can create stunning backdrops that resonate with the positive energy and excitement that is associated with this time of year.


For businesses like restaurants and bars, spring offers an excellent opportunity to infuse holiday elements such as St. Patrick’s Day and various community music events, farmer’s markets, and parades into their press walls.

Outdoor patios are suddenly open again and these are ideal spots to consider putting a press wall for your guests to enjoy. You can consider a photo wall of past events, a place for guests to write messages, or a themed photo booth for everyone to enjoy taking a selfie or two.

Whatever you do with your spring press wall, make sure your colors are fun and festive and set the stage for a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere, enticing customers to engage with your brand during this rejuvenating season.

As with the other seasons, make sure that your summer press wall is a gathering spot for fun and interaction.

Not only will you want to have branding in the background that highlights your business or event, but you’ll also want to incorporate symbolic elements into the design, like the date of the event, photos of attendees, and thematic elements that will make every picture one that is worth being displayed, long after summer is past.
