Poly Paper is a synthetic coated paper, similar to a heavy photo paper. It is water resistant and very difficult to tear. Poly Paper is shipped rolled, in a sturdy cardboard tube. We recommend storing your Poly Paper in this shipping tube to avoid creases.
Poly Paper can be hung as a backdrop by clamping to a backdrop stand or taping to a wall. (See: How to Hang a Poly Paper Backdrop).
Poly Paper can also be used as a floordrop. For best results, lay completely flat on a hard surface. We recommend taping down the edges to eliminate any wrinkling from moving subjects. Use painter's tape or masking tape; do not use gaffer tape on poly paper backdrops.
