Bought as a background for group and solo dance shots

In a nutshell...it works. If you stretch it tight, steam out wrinkles, and don't care what's behind it. Because it's not super easy to just "pop up". Give yourself 45 minutes to an hour for stretching and steaming by yourself. I'm using it on it's horizontal axis (20Wx10H) as a background for large dance groups. I use either a white vinyl floor or the natural floor. I also recommend no matter what support system you have, that if you use it horizontally like I do...go to the hardware store and get some L shaped PVC moulding and some clamps that you can use at the base where it meets the floor. This makes for a nice edge.
1. Light weight
3. After wrinkles are gone it looks good
1. Takes time to steam/stretch out wrinkles
2. Not double backed...you can see through it if there is a bright source (even a white portion of a wall) behind it. So use it with some duvetyne or get two and double them up if you're going to have windows or mirrors behind.
3. No grommets (not a big deal, but worth mentioning). Grommets make stretching easier.
