Background paper - Keeping it taut
11 months ago

I need a quick and efficient way of keeping my paper taut when hanging.

Colorama do some lovely things that clamp along the full length of the edge of paper - but at £45 each it gets a little expensive for 4 of the things...!  http://www.colorama-photo.com/coloredge.php

I have a heavy duty pole system with aluminium cores which allow me to store rolls in situ for extended periods of time but I'm lacking a tidy method of keeping the paper taut.

I've considered a simple aluminium 1" strip with double sided sticky tape and then folded over the edge and a couple of clips to keep it in place (so essentially the paper is holding the weight rather than the clips,) but I've a feeling some bright spark has come up with a more elegant solution.

Any thoughts / pictures / products...?
