Product Highlights
  • Professional Quality Vinyl
  • No Glare Shooting Surface
  • Durable

This is the 8 x 20' Savage Infinity Vinyl Background. Its unique matte finish allows for a glare free background. It is ideal for all portrait and commercial photography. The background comes with two sides - one shiny and one with a textural quality. The shooting side (non-shiny) has what Savage describes as a very subtle "weave pattern" and should be taken into consideration when using this background. 

Infinity Vinyl Backgrounds come in rolls on strong cores and can be used on most background support systems. Colors depicted may vary slightly, due to differences in computer monitors, printed media, and variances in manufacturer's fabrics, dyes or paints.

Ideal for all kinds of photography
Easy to clean with damp sponge
Sturdy cores prevent wrinkles
Seamless, hangs straight
The shooting side has a minute textural quality to it that helps prevent glare
Color Matte Black
Size 8 x 20' (2.4 x 6 m)

Comments about Savage Infinity Vinyl Background - 8 x 20' (Matte Black):

As you might imagine, vinyl is much heavier than paper, which is something that should be considered when hanging. The vinyl is prone to cling and will collect anything loose it comes in contact with the floor. Anything clinging statically is can be difficult to wipe off once rolled.

The vinyl is far more durable and wrinkle resistant than paper, but it's not bulletproof by any means. I got about a half dozen uses in before scratches and wrinkles called for it to be cut down. Whereas I can usually only get a single, maybe two uses out of a paper roll. So, I'd say in my experience the additional cost vs use is pretty much an even split when compared to paper, more or less depending on how often you work with animals, children or anyone wearing heels.

I would consider the key point of distinction being the texture and matte finish, the vinyl does a fantastic job soaking up light in high key lighting arrangements. To the point that I would probably keep buying this even if I had to replace / cut it every use (hence the 5 stars). It's that dark.

Comments about Savage Infinity Vinyl Background - 8 x 20' (Matte Black):

Vinyl backgrounds are so much more durable than paper backdrops. The y can be cleaned easily and don't crease or tear like paper.

I have had a white vinyl backdrop for three years now, and it still cleans up as good as new with a Clorox Wipe.

The vinyl backdrops have a distinct odor when you first unwrap them. The smell takes a week or so to wear off.

Also be prepared with heavy duty stands or mounting hardware - they are heavy. I use mine with Manfrotto wall mounts hung from a ceiling.

      Comments about Savage Infinity Vinyl Background - 8 x 20' (Matte Black):

      I use this background in my small home studio. It's a little challenging keeping light spill off the background but that's due to the size of my studio. Otherwise, it photographs black as expected. Easy to clean with a damp cloth. So far, no wrinkles noticed.
