      Comments about Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper (53" x 12yd, #54 Charcoal):

      Nice color, the paper is thick, but not overly so. It takes a little fiddling to lay flat since it's on a roll.

      For the price and the quality, I have no complaints.

      The paper, however, came taped, to keep from unraveling. The tape was the type which melds in and doesn't come off very easily. Trying to peel it off removed some of the paper as well. So you're looking at possibly losing the first few inches of the roll. No big deal, but removing the tape was a pain, since you do not want to cut into the paper, for risk of ruining more. I would much prefer to see a plastic ring wrap, placed in the middle and on the ends, which holds the paper together in the roll while shipping.

        Comments about Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper (53" x 12yd, #54 Charcoal):

        Love Savage Seamless Backgrounds! The charcoal color was exactly the color posted on the site. Sometimes the color is a lot lighter than the thumbnail and that can get very frustrating. This thumbnail is very true to the color.

        I use the backdrops for photographing dogs at the shelter to help them get adopted. They were all above 50 pounds and the backdrop only tore a little with one dog that was harder to get to sit down and stay still.

        Durable and true to color.

        It is what it is and therefore it is pretty straight forward. It is background paper and it is exactly a roll of seamless background paper in charcoal color. The color is excellent for taking portraits. It is classic and clean in a sophisticated multipurpose sense of things. You definitely need to have this color of seamless background paper in your stock of backgrounds

              Comments about Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper (53" x 12yd, #54 Charcoal):

              I got home and mounted the paper on the basic beam that came with a lighting kit I got a few months ago. (It's pretty low quality, but it's held up well the past couple months.) The Seamless ream fit just two bars across and there's enough paper to go clear across the room if you need that. I've used it for every shoot since I got it a couple weeks ago and it's solid and durable. One model kept falling back onto it and the paper has yet to tear. Another thing worth noting is that it takes light well without too much overexposure. Two things though:

              1. If you don't have clamps, you'll need them to make sure to hold the place - so the paper doesn't roll out...(Some might know this already, but it IS worth noting if you haven't already bought them.)

              2. Make sure you pay attention to the width though, 53" is great as long as your model isn't too tall and needing to stretch out their hands. I shot a 6'2 guy who was able to put his arms above his head but opening them out to the sides wasn't able to fit into the frame (He'd be roughly 63" across..) If you want a lot of room for movement and arms, etc, you might want to get the next size up (if not, you'll be stretching the background in post-shoot editing. It's easy enough, but if you don't have a good program, it might be an issue.) I'll definitely return for other colors.

                      I list products on an online auction and recently switched from "Storm Gray" to Charcoal, which I feel provides a significantly richer, darker background and helps products to stand out. Some monitors and/or video cards can really lighten the background too much, but this color should keep the desired gray tone "pinned down" for most viewers. Glad I made the switch.

                                  A great background paper for headshots on location. The shorter length makes it easy to transport and set up. The paper is evenly dyed and thick enough that it wont easily tear.

                                      I just used this for a newborn shoot and I must say the color that it puts out is amazing.

                                        I always like Savage Paper Backgrounds. Their quality is great, I already owned several colors, I wanted to give a try to this #54 Charcoal, I was happy with the results. It is a nice complement to Black, White and Fashion Gray.

                                          This paper is perfect. The color is not too light and not too dark. I photograph sculptures that are often light colored. I can hang the roll from the ceiling and pull down as much as I need, depending on the size of the sculpture.

                                            With so many gray backdrops, this one is perfect for my portrait work. The paper is durable; essential because I specialize in children's photography. Remember to have clips in-hand because it tends to unravel quickly. My favorite backdrop so far.

                                                Beautiful color. I really like how it makes other colors pop too. I recommend this paper color highly.

                                                    By far the most useful of three "grayish" background paper for me. Very consistent color, no blemishes.
