Prompt Side Ltd

Prompt Side specialises in the manufacture of bespoke drapery and digitally printed backdrops and flooring to theatres and event companies across the UK.

Our knowledge, accumulated over 25 years of collaboration with designers and production managers, alongside our Managing Director’s decade of theatrical experience, lends us unrivalled technical expertise – highly valued and appreciated by our customers.

Our clients include the Royal Opera House, English National Opera & Glyndebourne Opera, and we frequently collaborate with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre.

Our award-winning dye-sublimation printing provides excellent photo-quality images with vivid colours, with the fabric retaining its soft texture. Seam-less™ is our revolutionary new method of joining fabric without traditional seams - backcloths are manufactured using a pioneering textile weld. This technique allows almost any size of cloth to be printed, joined and backlit without any loss of visual quality.

Having established our credentials with dye-sub printing we have increased our catalogue, printing bespoke designs direct to media. Our new flat-bed and roll to roll printer allows us to produce printed MDF, printed plywood and printed polycarbonate. What's more this technology enables us to print Back Projection screens – unleashing many exciting possibilities for the innovative designer.

MD Peter Baker is delighted to be at the vanguard of theatrical digital print saying “It's an exciting time for Prompt Side as we expand our range of products and massively increase the creative opportunities available to designers”.
