    Gorgeous product. Beautiful mix of beige brown and greens in a painterly old masters feel of texture. Will order again in other colors. Very durable and well made, goes with me everywhere.

    I've had a Savage painted-canvas backdrop for years and love it. I recently ordered an additional one which arrived promptly and is beautiful. After a few days, though, a problem developed. What sets a company apart is how they deal with problems. Chris Cohn was knowledgeable, competent, and decisive in resolving the issue. Couldn't be happier.

    I love this background. I like that its super unique and my clients love it too. It's another perfect product from Savage.

    I have the 5x7 version of this and it looks just like the photo - bright and creamy with tans/grays/greens - beautiful painted canvas! I wanted a bigger version because I loved the smaller one so much and ordered the larger size 8x12. It's completely different - no creamy colors at all on it - it's almost all black - very, very dark with no tans/creams mixed in at all (honestly it almost looks like I was shipped the Eclipse version by mistake) ...... I took it to my session (should have checked it out beforehand) and my assistant set it up and started shooting on it, but when I saw it I knew the client wouldn't be happy as they wanted the 5x7 colors I had. So now I have to find another type of canvas and do a reshoot.... : ( It was used for the session (even though I can't use any of the photos), so according to the page, I can't return.... anyway, just sad about it all. And for the record, this is the only bad experience I've had with Savage. I have tons of paper and canvas drops from them and they are all beautiful. I'd suggest not buying the 8x12 version of the desert canvas......

We recommend spraying the background lightly with a fabric protection spray. Wait until the first coat is entirely dry and then spray again. Allow the background to dry thoroughly before using or storing. Care should also be taken not get the background wet.

Painted Canvas Backdrops are not flame retardant.

Savage Canvas backgrounds are hand painted with an acrylic-based paint.

Use care when handling your Savage painted canvas background. Clean the model’s shoes before he/she steps onto the material to prevent dirt marks. Blot dirt or dust with a dry cloth. Roll up the backdrop after use.

Heavy cotton canvas, attached to an aluminum core and counterweight wood trim.

We recommend steaming the backdrop from the backside to eliminate wrinkles.
