This backdrop is precisely as advertised.
I use this backdrop in my studio more often than any other backdrop I own.
The material is paper - but robust. Heavy use and zero rips or tears.
For the price I have no qualms if it gets dirty or (on the off-chance) torn, I can easily replace it.
The fact that it's 12 yards ensures multiple uses out of it, and the width is perfect for single or small group portraits.
The shade is VERY flattering for portraits, helps even but distinct skin tones and really lets tee-shirts pop out for commercial photography.

Only thing that's not so great - It's not vinyl. It can get creased if it falls rapidly or if mishandled. Requires a *little* bit of babying, but honestly not much. Very robust for a paper product.

The paper was the color I expected and is good in thickness. [...]The only thing was that on one end of the paper there was a tear about a foot from the edge and about two feet up the paper. Not that big of a deal when you consider it has 12 yrds, but still just a little disappointed about the tear.

      Great neutral background for garment catalog shots or any other use you can think of.
      If you don't step on it it'll probably last forever, if you do step on it, you'll have to buy a new one at some point.
      It's good size for full body shots. If you need to shoot a portrait orientation full body shots(depending on the model/subject/ hight, you might have to use the content aware tool in Photoshop to stretch it a little on the sides.
      Overall very good product, easy to set up and use, endless possibility of uses.

              I was very disappointed that after just 4 days of having this on my bracket
              it was already sagging at the middle and had to resort to spooling this on a metal tube. The carton core is simply not sturdy enough to maintain a good alignment and sags. I have a white seamless that i've been using for months now and the carton in it is still a good support.

              Great paper for the money. It does stain easy as with any paper. If you don't have the money for more higher quality plastic backdrops, this does the job. Has a nice consistant tone.

                          When I opened the tube the paper was ripped around the tape holding it together for at least two feet. A 9 foot roll is expensive to buy and ship, there should not be any waste. There should be a better system and quality controll to prevent this. I've been buying Savage for too many year to see a good company fall victim of quality issues.

                                  This paper is much lighter than it's picture here. It is lighter than I'd like to use for fashion photography. I was very disappointed with the color.

                                  Comments about Savage Seamless Background Paper (107" x 12yds, #56 Fashion Gray):

                                  I was able to use this product as a background for small kids, with models and still life objects as well. I cut pieces and I attached the paper to another tube so I could transport the roll of paper.Yes,the paper tears at times but no big deal. I just cut it and have impeccable apperance on the paper again.

                                  Beautiful paper! Thick and consistent color throughout. I have nothing to complain about the product itself, however it just really gets under my skin that I have to pay close to the same amount of money to ship it as the product costs itself. As far as the quality of the product goes.. 5 out of 5! I'll be purchasing more in the future..p.s. my paper roll is super easy to use because I purchased the manfroto wall mount and METAL chain kit. (Everything I read said the plastic chains are worthless, so I bit the bullet and bought the metal one). The metal one is NICE! Without that, I can see this product taking a much greater chance of being damaged or unusable over time.

                                    I ordered this paper along with Impact Background support for full body pictures at my home studio.

                                    Paper has a neutral and even color. Easy to control on a support system with a couple of clamps from a home improvement store.

                                    Paper comes nicely sealed in a plastic sleeve, which was really good because the day UPS delivery left it on my porch, there was a soaking rain that nearly destroyed an outer carton, however plastic held off water from a paper roll.

                                    The paper worked really well for my photo project. Good value and highly recommended.
