Savage 20 Black Overview

Photograph people and products against a smooth, uncluttered background with this 53" x 36' roll of #20 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. This black paper is the type used to create classic, clean black backgrounds.

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.

Nice gray

I used this for a halloween pet photoshoot throughout October. The dark gray is nice because, with lighting angles, you are able to darken it/lighten the background for a desired contrast against your subject.

Is there an 18% gray backdrop and what's the color called?
Asked by: Mark
The Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#74 Smoke Gray, 53" x 36'), BH # SABGP5374 would be the closest match to 18% gray. https://bhpho.to/3tJILH3

Description says rolls ships in plastic sleeve which can be reused for storage. I've never received plastic sleeve. Is this something I have to specifically ask for?
Asked by: Jessica
The thin clear plastic that it ship in can be reused. It is just a thin protective cover its not a proper bag or storage unit.

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.

question

My 54 seamless background paper is curling along the left and right edges. What causes this?
Asked by: Donald
If you are referring to the corners of the background that is unrolled, that is normal. What most do is tape or use clamps to prevent it from doing that.If it a large part of the background it sounds like it could be humidity that is causing that. But to know for sure that is difficult to pin point.If you just received the background you should discuss this with customer service,Customer Service, you can email them at [email protected]<a href= http://bhphotovideo.com, target= _blank >bhphotovideo.com,</a> or call them after 9am EST at: 800.221.5743 or 212.239.7765Fax: 212.502.9426 or 866.521.7375Or you can come in to chat.

Hello, Can I cut this paper with a pair of scissors. I need it to be 30 inches wide and I estimate 45 inches long. I plan to use it in a Light Tent for now. As always thank you very much for your help. John
Asked by: John
No. We highly suggest a extra fine hack saw for clean cuts.
