I bought this, and a black roll, to see what it was like in lieu of fabric backgrounds. Infinitely better. Doesn't wrinkle so light will distribute evenly, and makes a nice curve onto the floor or other surface for that edgeless look. The only, very minute problem is the tape with which it is bound in, black and white striped, but it's not really even an issue given that you can use it as sort of a guide for positioning and how much to roll out.

And it's paper, no clinging pet or people hair. All around very satisfied with this purchase.

For decades Savage has been the background paper brand name of choice among professional photographers. The bulk of my photography career is behind me and now I only do occasional portraits and product jobs.

The roll of super white Savage seamless background paper I purchased via Amazon to photograph products was delivered in a box-within-a-box. Packaging was so good it bears mention with a product where small defects (dents, creases, marks) can render the product useless.

I choose super white so the products I am photographing will appear to be "floating" over a white background. The paper really is super-white and provides a perfect background for normal or high-key photography. The paper itself is perfect for backgrounds; it is heavy and holds a smooth curve when draped onto a bench for small products which is just what I want.

In a pinch I've used Savage Super White effectively as a projection screen.

I've used super white to create a light tent for photographing jewelry or other small and very reflective items.

If using a turntable for photographing frames for a 360 degree super-white can overhang the turntable and has just the right amount of sag on the overhang. This makes it easy to create the illusion that the product is floating in space or sitting on an unending white surface.

When I am doing portraits I'll often use the super-white background and if I want other colors light it separately using color gels on the strobes in my studio. I can create a plethora of colors and effects to create interesting and complementary portraits.

This simple product is perfect for the photographic backgrounds it is made for and more. I've even used it as a window shade during renovations some years ago! A simple thing well made for a purpose and useful for much more. It deserves 5 stars.

I have the black and white in this product and I am really happy with this purchase. As a photographer, this helps to create crisp and uniform portraits without any crease. It allows the images to look professional and brings out definition in the subject. This is also great for video interviews and product photography

We purchased this product for our home theater screen. It has worked perfectly so far for that use. We previously had a real screen but it was easily scratched and very expensive. With the paper if anything happens, we can just remove and replace and our picture looks great!

Rather good quality. Works as it should. When paper gets rather dirty you can just tear or cut off and roll out some more. Only concern is there is no good way to keep paper rolled up. Tried using clamps but damages the ends.

I purchased this white paper background for portraits, and I am extremely happy with it, however for me, I should have ordered the wider background from the same company because this size is only good for one person (MAYBE two small children). I ended up taping two strips of background together as a temporary fix, but I have to fix this in post processing because you can see the seam in the photo. I should have ordered the bigger size, but I am VERY HAPPY with the product and quality.

Great DIY Projector screen

This review is for those using this paper as a DIY Home Theater projector screen. Be sure to use Super White, #1. This paper is indeed bright white and not off white. The paper is light and easy to mount. It has a flat finish that doesn't cause any hot spots. The paper is very smooth and looks great as a screen. Overall a great buy. Because of the width of the paper you will be limited to around 110 inch screen if using the standard 16 x 9 format.

While I only use this background under certain conditions, it hold up perfectly for a seamless highkey white. The 53" is perfect for when you have to travel with your equipment. If you are looking for your studio, spend the extra money and get the 107" - you'll be glad you did.

After previously struggling miserably with the muslin background materials, I discovered the Savage seamless background paper. This is SO much better than muslin. I sell designer clothing on EBay and my "studio" is in my home. While I do keep a clean house, it is inevitable that there will be dust, hair, lint, etc. Muslin was just impossible between wrinkles and stuff sticking to it. The Savage Seamless Background paper solved all of my problems. It is an exceptional quality, heavy duty paper that provides a smooth, flawless background for my EBay pictures. Super White #1 is best. I would NEVER go back to muslin.

Exactly what I was looking for. Mounted this puppy directly on the upper cross bar of my background holder. Works so well I've packed up all my fabric backgrounds. This is my go to background. I do a lot of product shots on pure white backgrounds and this worked perfectly for me.

Just grab the leading edge down and clamp it to your photo surface. Place your product and shoot. Completely seamless, no annoying sheens to deal with, no wrinkles, pure white. My lighting bounces of it perfectly. And the natural curve from tabletop to background leaves no shadows in final photographs.

This saves me HOURS of post-processing work I used to have to do. Makes my photos look great!
