This seems to go against common practice of standing it up, but does anyone do it?

I roll it up tight and either use some gaff tape or rubber bands to secure it, then slide it back in the box. But I have finally helped my mom clean up her garage enough to have a proper sized studio and have gone from short rolls to long rolls. I don't have the ceiling height at home, and her garage (plenty of height) is not climate controlled. In North Carolina it gets pretty humid and I think maybe the humidity would be worse than my current plan?

I have a flat brick wall at home that would support the entire length of the roll.

Thoughts?

In the box?
Probably not a problem. I'd flip the box 90 degrees every couple of weeks to minimize problems.

believe it or not i have quite a few rolls of fabric laying on the floor right now. I shoot them regularly for a client.

paper has "memory" meaning if it gets warped a little it will remember that warp when it is unrolled. Vinyl will do this to an extent too, but at least with the hundreds of fabrics I have shot it doesn't seem to be a problem.

my brain is telling me that if I keep them rolled tight it shouldn't matter much. Going to rotate them too just to be sure, good idea david.

Email savage. The foto store in my town stores backgrounds standing. I store mine standing. Paper will be impacted most. It may depend on humidity too.

I'd hate to iron out (is that even possible?) uneven paper where you can see where it rested on the bottom. Like a car tire, but every few inches.

Keep it standing upright in the box, laying it down will cause sags that are a pain to clone out in post.

If you want to store it horizontally anyway maybe something like two jack stands can suspend it on the horizontal pole. You should not put it down on the floor or you will get marks.

Yes, store standing. I've gotten "flat spots" on paper and vinyl rolls in the past. Fabric seems to be ok either way.

Those that have messed up a roll by storing horizontally, did you roll it up really tight and secure it?

I have a roll of black and a roll of white. Might leave one in the garage standing, and bring one home to see what happens.

I'd start considering a fabric or other solution. Write Savage. They may have an answer.

Unopened box 107" black paper. But it also happens to other rolled media like inkjet, unless the media has a core plug that exceeds the diameter of the media roll.
