I bought a 12 foot wide stand with some stand clips to pull the background taut. It cost me under a hundred bucks....a good one is about $150. Setup is usually about 5 minutes with 2 people plus one to iron the backdrop.....or 3 GA's
I've been complaining here for over two years. Obviously not complaining in the right place.I don't get it!!! The panel looks horrible. It can't possibly cost that much. You would think that VCU would not want to look like skid row in front of the media.
