Rose Brand Blog -- Reason For Being

by Rose Brand 29. January 2010 10:32

Welcome! For those who don't know us, we're probably the largest provider of fabrics, custom sewn creations and production supplies to theater, event, house of worship and education organizations. As such, we have a vast storehouse of knowledge about our industry that we'd love to share. We thought a blog would be the perfect vehicle for that purpose. The objectives of our blog are to inform, educate and entertain those who are members, or followers, of our industry. We'll be posting "how to" information, design & production tips, amusing project stories and news items.

We invite you to comment on our postings and hope that we can all engage in lively discussion that will serve the objectives described above. If you'd like to post a comment to the blog, all we'll need is your username, email address and, of course, your comment. Please note that comments will be moderated and most likely appear within 24 hours of submission. It's our intent that our blog becomes both a go-to resource for production insight and a virtual gathering place for our industry. We invite you to subscribe to our RSS feed and come back often so that you can:



- and ENJOY!


George Jacobstein, President

I'm a librarian, and I love Rose Brand.  Rose Brand came to my rescue as I was trying to find a solution for a puppet stage backdrop.  The Rose Brand pipe and base system was the perfect solution.  I've now purchased Rose Brand pipe and base for two different library systems where I've worked.  They are easy to transport and quick to set up as we take puppet shows around to different branch libraries.

Flame resistant/retardant fabrics are a must within the haunted house.  Rose Brand has been a great source for FR scrims and fabrics for our haunt.  It will be nice to have a blog dealing with your products and see what others are doing with them!

Rosebrand is the leader in the industry for both pushing the boundaries with innovative ideas, and customer support. Their work with new technology, such as the snap-together traveller track, keeps them in the forefront whenever i'm specifying any soft goods for a production. No matter where i go, i keep the phone number and web site for Rosebrand close by. Shelley

Your blog is going to be a wonderful place for free form communication.  As a scenic artist and props artisan I use Rosebrand to stock my shop as well as ordering my bulk softgoods. I am excited and interested to see what you choose to blog about.

The scrim material we purchased at Christmas was wonderful. It was beautiful behind the choir as we bounced light off it as a back drop. It was also very economical.

Great idea! Since set design and fabrics are only a small part of my job, it will be a great way to keep up on trends and techniques of the industry.

We here at Trinity Church in Miami, FL have used your products in several of our stage designs! couldn't be more satisfied with the products and services offered by Rose Brand!

I work with a number of churches, some small and a couple very large.  All have extremely low budgets for stage design.  Whenever I am tasked with making a big impression I usually go to fabrics.  Fabric can go a long way and be installed easily.  It can also create massive pallets for lights.  In those times I call Helene at Rose Brand and she helps me choose the right fabric, think through all the necessary application needs and always gets me in under budget.  As an LD, TD and visual arts director I can't imagine how I would do my job without Rose Brand.

Thank you,

I wholly trust the above comment, the web is having a doubt growing into crucial medium of communication across the world & its because of web-sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.
