Savage 27 Thunder Gray Overview

Photograph people and products against a smooth, uncluttered background with this 9' x 36' roll of #27 Thunder Gray 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.

Savage 27 Thunder Gray Reviews

Damaged, but functional. Mostly positive experience!

The paper is the perfect color and (almost) the perfect fit for my use. Of course, it's hard to judge the size of something without actually seeing it. I'm using this paper for commercial audition purposes. There are a few negatives that I've experienced with it, but I think they're easy enough to overlook. 1. Shipping cost almost as much as the paper. For something that arrived damaged, this is a bit of a bummer. It was still less than ordering from Amazon (would've been $99) but still, I expected better care to be taken on the item before it arrived. More on that: 2. The roll of paper arrived damaged. The end of the tube was missing its cap. It did still have the staples protruding through, but only one side had a plastic cap. I'm actually surprised it made it at all without falling out. There was a bit of tearing on that end. 3. The staples scraped up the paper as I removed it from the tube. It was annoying, but I have 8' ceilings and 18' of paper. It's not a major dealbreaker. Plus that, it is paper. I'm not expecting it to last forever without getting a little tattered. 4. It's not wide enough, but any bigger and my backdrop stand won't fit in my room. This isn't a fault on anyone but myself. I didn't fully comprehend the backdrop, my placement, the placement of the camera and the lenses that I'm using. What I've done to compensate for this is to slide it over to the side that I'm entering, and making sure that I stay center-frame (not touching the edge), and then it's just a few touchups from there. Essentially for 3/4 shots it's not the most idea, but it's workable. For medium shots and closer, it will work fine. Alternatively, I could cut the paper and tape it up. I didn't reach out to B&H or the company to try to rectify the damaged item. It didn't seem worth it to do so, honestly. This will still work for what I need it. It was my intention to buy something used if I could anyway because I'm trying to be environmentally conscious.

Paper quality is really good. Color was exactly what I was expecting. But there was a line made of many small wrinkles right in the middle of it on the entire roll.

This color & quality is amazing!

question

Which is a better all around grey backdrop color, Thunder or Fashion?
Asked by: Gretchen
Thunder Gray is one of the darker gray backgrounds. It is very good but for some too dark.#56 Fashion Gray is somewhat in the middle and that one does seem to be more popular. And the one that comes close to 18% gray is #70 Storm Gray.
