You have to be a little careful how you light it because you may see some ripples in the paper.

I was totally disgusted when I received this product as it has gotten such good reviews. My roll of paper was ripped TWELVE FEET into the roll. To return it would have been a major pain (and expensive) plus I needed it for a shoot so I had to use what was left. I would be interested to know if others have had this experience.

Comments about Savage Seamless Background Paper (107" x 12yds, #27 Thunder Gray):

It's a toss up between ultra white and thunder gray as to which one to get first...so get them both. This is a great color, classic for business portraits but equally suited for fashion portraits where hi-key just doesn't suit the mood.

      Product was just as good as expected. We used the paper for a photo shoot, and the paper was high quality and thick enough to create a great effect. We haven't discovered any negatives, though have only used the product once.

          It's a versatile mix between my white and black seamless backgrounds. Much easier to use and maintain than fabric; no ironing or washing needed. If it gets dirty, just cut off the dirty few feet and roll out a little bit more.
          Note on shipping: If the tube comes damaged, inspect the paper ASAP! B&H's customer service has been great about replacing damaged rolls in the past when notified of a problem.

            from Delaware

            Comments about Savage Seamless Background Paper (107" x 12yds, #27 Thunder Gray):

            I use savage seamless thunder grey on almost all of my big group studio sessions (dance & gymnastics). It is extremely affordable as well as versatile. Seamless (especially thunder grey) always gives me added depth and drama to my shots that I can't seem to get with cloth. It's a staple!!

                Great color paper. Paper color can be used for numerous portrait needs. Gave it a 4 because paper rips and crinkles more easily than paper I had from another vendor.

                It was delivered during a snow storm with 1 end cap missing. The edge has mild water damage because of this. The rest of the paper is fine, but like many others, the tape holding the paper closed, caused it to rip. Overall, the paper is what I expected and the color is accurate.

                            These paper backgrounds are great, but be aware they are very large and tend to be damaged in shipping. This one showed up bent in the center. B and H customer service sent a new one out immediately. Their customer service is the best!

                                Good weight of paper and good color for different types of photos. Light it and it goes to lighter grey. Take light away and it goes to dark grey.
