About Savage Universal

A worldwide leader in backgrounds and photographic products since 1937; Savage enables photographers and videographers to craft their images with consistency and cohesive style.

From our beginning in 1937 as a manufacturer of quality board and paper products, Savage has provided photographers the essential elements for success. Family-run from the start, we have a commitment to quality and innovation that defined who we were in the beginning and still defines who we are today.

Products such as photographic backgrounds continue to be a key focus of our manufacturing efforts, but there’s much more to the Savage story. We’re continuing to develop innovative products, especially in the studio equipment & lighting arenas, to meet the needs of today’s more diverse photography community—professionals and semiprofessionals alike.

Photography Backdrops

From seamless background paper and durable vinyl to hand painted canvas and travel backdrop kits, we make the versatile products that photographers and videographers rely on for creating perfect backgrounds for virtually every situation.

Studio Equipment

Background stands, innovative LED lights and modifiers, durable support stands and even product photography kits — we have all of the tools necessary for studio setups of every type and size.

Mat & Mount Board

When it comes to mounting photographs for display, it’s important to use products that not only enhance images but that also can stand the test of time. With over 80 years of manufacturing experience behind them, Savage mats and mount boards clearly meet their marks in both areas.
