Could be better..,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As another customer stated it a simple frame and even this monkey managed to put it together without stopping and scratching my head. My disappointment is in the back drops them selves. They arrive packed flat and are full of creases. I got the iron and cloth and steamed the creases out. It took some time and a few cups of tea.
They let a lot of back light through, which as a complete package is further disappointment. I went to B & Q and purchased 40mm plastic waste pipe, it's light weight and comes in 2 metre lengths. The top pole slides through nicely and 3 lengths cost less than £10.00. I can now roll up the back drops and store them uncreased.
The lighting and frames are perfect for us amateur snappers, so if you can find them without the back drops then do so. I can see myself replacing the material very soon.

It was I who did the first review, and you are right, the creases do limit the usuage. I did a steam iron through a T cloth and it did get MOST of the creases out. However a trip to IKEA and a 6ft Black black out blind for 20 quid has solved the problem instantly

Hi, I eventually went to a fabric shop yesterday and picked up some material for under £10. I took a torch with me and tried to shine it through, it blocks everything. With a bit of deft sewing from my beloved one I know have a roll up backdrop. With the plastic pipe from B & Q it has cost approx £13. I am now looking for other colours, I have made the black one and have the white fabric on order, the cost should be the same for each back drop.
