I am extremely upset with the Portrait White Infinity Canvas (9x20) from Savage.

I have had this backdrop for a few months and still cannot figure out how to get rid of the stupid creases left in it from packaging/shipping. I have tried steaming it, ironing it, wetting it, hanging it, etc. Nothing works.

How in the world am I supposed to get the creases out?

I've even emailed Savage about it - No response. What a surprise.

Do any of you own this backdrop and have you been able to remove the creases? Please help.

Here is a link to the backdrop: LINK (external link).

Thank you,
Scott

I've heard that putting it in the dryer with a bit of water can do it, but if steaming and ironing have not done it, then that may not work.

Perhaps clamp it to stretch out the creases? If it's white and you have the lights available, I'd just try to blow out the backdrop.

What are you steaming it with? An iron or a dedicated steamer?

I've had luck washing and drying and then going over with a hot steam iron. Those creases can be stubborn.

I've been using a dedicated steamer and it has no effect on the creases. It will remove the small wrinkles between the creases however.

I've also saturated the canvas with a spray bottle and then ironed with a hot iron (lots of steam) but that barely puts a dent in the creases.

Are all these OK in the washer and dryer? Would lots of fabric softener be OK ?

Slightly dampen the back side then roll it up tight on a rod or tube and let it sit. If that doesn't work then I have no clue what will. This usually works best outdoors in the summer.

That is one reason why I went with a Vinyl for my white background. The vinyl might be heavy and expensive, but I never ever have a crease.

I still use muslin for my black background. Getting rid of creases in black backgrounds is really easy in Adobe Camera RAW, but getting rid of white creases is not so easy.
