Savage 20 Black Overview

Photograph people and products against a smooth, uncluttered background with this 9' x 36' roll of #20 Super Black Widetone Seamless Background Paper from Savage. To facilitate even lighting, the surface of the paper is non-reflective and has a fine-tooth finish. In addition to photography, the paper may be used for events, decorations, banners, and more.

The paper density is 100 pounds, or 145 gsm, an easy-to-handle resilient thickness of 7.6 mil, and comes wound on a core with a 2.125" interior diameter. A plastic sleeve protects the roll in transit and can be saved to provide continued protection when the paper is not in use. The paper should be stored vertically to reduce the possibility of warping and other damage. Photographers often use clamps to secure the paper to a backdrop stand as well as tape to secure the paper to the floor if rolled out for full-body shots. The paper is acid-free and 100% recyclable.

Due to the manufacturing process, it's not uncommon for sizes to fluctuate slightly. In most cases the amount of fluctuation won't matter.

I have a bunch of Savage background paper rolls and wanted to get something to use that would be darker than the Thunder Gray and this Black does the trick.

I used ProMaster seamless paper in the past and was annoyed with how it didn't absorb (or reflect respectively) the lights and instead had annoying shiny spots and uneven background colors so I switched to muslin. Muslin has its own problems (I have no space to properly keep wrinkle free) so I'd like to try paper again. How well does this brand absorb the light? Or should I stick with fabric?
Asked by: Timothy
I think you will have the same experience with this seamless that you did with ProMaster. I have found the only way to avoid the Uneven background when using seamless paper is to shoot with the subject pretty far away from the background.

question

I have a section of an unfinished basement to practice photography and thought of getting some seamless paper. To both fit and give me the most options for my space, the 86 would work best. However, I see there are only four color options in that size (I only need black and white, so no issue there). However, is there any risk of this size eventually not being available in case I want to turn my basement into a studio for the long term? i.e. do you think an 86 option will be available for many years to come?
Asked by: Ricky
From our understanding, the 86 wide paper by Savage is a newer option and we have not heard of any plans they have of stopping production on this size.
