I'm thinking of buying a 53" x 12 yrds background paper for a studio. I was wondering if I could possibly tape two pieces together and have basically 106" x 6 yrds? would the cease in between the two sheets be a problem at all? thanks

You're going to find out that it's incredibly difficult to do that and not worth the effort. Your best bet is to get a fabric or muslin background for the wider shots and use the 53" seamless for tighter shots.

If you need a wider paperbackground why not get a 107" instead wich is the standard size ?

I agree with not taping the two together. You will probably have differences in reflection angle if the background isn't blown out, and the joint will be noticeable. You will have to edit out the tape. You will have to roll up or down two separate rolls instead of just one. etc..

I just noticed you seem to be talking about splitting the length in half. If you do this you will not have the sturdy cardboard center to roll the cut half onto.

why would tape them together?! rationale aside, that's gonna look horrendous.

plus the fact that a 107" roll is probably cheaper than two 53"'ers...
