Offering a black-to-white gradient pattern, this thunder gray Graduated Vinyl Background from Flotone helps you quickly and easily create appealing effects that would be time consuming to achieve using conventional single-tone backgrounds. The 31 x 43" background is individually handmade from seamless PVC material. The silky, matte surface is glare-free and you can easily clean it with mild soap and a soft cloth. The background material and colors do not absorb water, so you can use it with ice cubes, fruit, flowers, and other props that might damage conventional paper or cloth backgrounds. The Flotone PVC background is easily mounted with clamps or tape, and can be used again and again.

The inside of my light box is really small 12 x 12. Is this sheet available in a smaller size?
Asked by: Dorothy
Unfortunately, Flotone only produces a 31 x 43 as its smallest size.

It appears there is some blue in this backdrop, from photos people have posted. Is this true? Trying to avoid blue, just want black/grey/white tones in the paper. Still using my graduated grey/white BH backdrop from several years ago but it adds blue tones often. Thanks.
Asked by: Lin
There is no blue on this background , you can add blue gel to the light if you want to add blue to the background . In your case you don't need to .

Can you recommend a support device or system to hold the graduated background? I'm now just thumbtacking it to the wall.
Asked by: Edwin
I use large clips to attach the background to a support stand that I also got at B and H. I trimmed the background to size and so it wouldn’t be so awkward to handle.

For the larger size (43"67"), which measurement is the height? I am looking for one that is taller than it is wide, but the photos seem to show it as being longer in width. Thanks!
Asked by: Rebecca
FLOTONE dimensions are 43" Wide and 67" Long, so the larger dimension is the height. The graduations run vertically the length of the material. For additional information, please see the below link. If you have any additional questions that B&H can not answer, please feel free to call Argraph at 201-939-7722 or email. [email protected]. Thank you for your interest in FLOTONE

will the surface scratch?does it roll up for storage?
Asked by: LOUIS C.
The surface doesn't scratch as easily at I thought, but probably would if I wasn't careful. I shoot photos of my pottery on it and it has held up great after one year! This backdrop does roll up for storage. I slide the plastic over it that originally came with it (don't throw it out) and loosely roll it up. This keeps it from getting scratched or damaged.
