I'm Bethany Anderson, creator of Stile + Co. I started out my journey doing food and product photography quickly realizing there was a huge hole in the market for
small backdrops! After carrying heavy wood photo boards to shoots for months, I set out in 2018 to create vinyl photo backgrounds made specifically for food and product photographs that were realistic, lightweight, and durable. I am based out of Knoxville, TN and have a huge passion for small business and helping other entrepreneurs grow! I also LOVE seeing all of your photos and learning about what you do! Make sure you tag us on intsagram @stileandco and reach out by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me a little about yourself and your business! I'd love to get to know you!
THREE VINYL OPTIONS
All of our hand crafted Stile textures come in three different options.
Original Vinyl: Our original vinyl has a smooth matte finish. The white backing allows you to flip it over and shoot on a clean white surface. This vinyl material is specifically made to roll out completely flat, straight out of the tube. No need to tape down the corners or lay it out over night. Keep them stored with the print side rolled out in the tube to reduce roll marks. But don't worry, if your stile begins to wrinkle just pull out your steamer and it will be good as new!
Magnetic Vinyl: Our new magnetic vinyl also has a smooth matte finish, but is backed with a superthin magnetic sheet. This allows it to easily attach to our magnetic boards giving you a rigid backdrop option. Just pull it off the board and swap it out to change your look with ease.
Large Stiles: Our large Stiles are printed on our original vinyl, but are 3’x3.5’ so you can shoot larger products.
Each one of our Stiles have been meticulously designed to create such a realistic look that you would think you're photographing on the real thing. From butcher block stiles to faux marble backdrops, our Stiles will make you feel like you are photographing on the actual surface.
As a food photographer myself, I am extremely aware of how heavy food props and wood backgrounds can be when you are headed to a shoot. When finding the perfect material for our flat lay backgrounds I knew it had to be lightweight and rollable. However, with that I did not want to sacrifice on quality. This is why I decided to use the vinyl background materials that we use now. We promise you won't be disappointed with these portable backgrounds!
These lay flat backdrops are so easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store, and AFFORDABLE without sacrificing quality! I can’t wait to order more of them! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Stile and Co styling mats are a game changer in the wedding world! So light and easy to bring in a styling kit, these mats create a gorgeous, minimalistic surface that you can move anywhere quickly- perfect for those dimly lit church-basement wedding prep spots, crowded family homes, etc! I used to create textured backgrounds on 2x2 wooden boards, and though beautiful, they were just too much to carry around on weddings days- these are so easy to just roll-out and go. I can't wait to invest in more and try them on food shoots as well!
LOVE my backdrop. I purchased 2 of the marble backdrops and the results so far have been fantastic! I received them super quick too. I'll definitely be ordering more.
