Some early feedback and customer snaps on our photography background papers

Some early feedback and customer snaps on our photography background papers

septiembre 25, 2018

Hey there, I just wanted to share a few comments we've had from some of our first customers as A, i'm chuffed with them and B, it's always nice to hear what other people think about a product rather than just the designer/owner!  

This is a completely new business and product range for me so I'm really pleased to have this great feedback on what I had hoped would be (and is proving to be - thank god!)  a good solution to the needs of stylists and photographers on a lower budget or when quick fixes are required if you supply props for many different clients.

Another good sign is that we're already getting repeat orders - only in our second month of being in business - so that makes me very pleased too. Not only are people enjoying shooting with my photography backgrounds, but they're also coming back for more, giving me feedback, discussing opportunities and generally being part of our journey.  It's fabulous - thanks so much if you're one of those early advocates.

If you are on the fence as to whether these backdrops would be right for your photography, read on for genuine customer comments and click through to see how these guys are using their BVS backdrops on Instagram or their own websites.

And please remember - your feedback and questions are always welcome - be it regarding the packaging or shipping options, print quality, durability or anything else.  Feel free to contact me on or 07866 636070. 

Thanks for reading,  Sophie xx

'My first attempt at mounting a backdrop, really chuffed with the results. Now to order another couple. Thanks Sophie @blackvelvetstyling it looks excellent.'

'The quality of the backdrop is fantastic. Shall be buying more!'

'It was the first backdrop I have mounted and as I said in my Instagram post, it turned out really well. I have in the past bought and used printed mountboard backgrounds from other companies but have to say your printed backgounds are so fantastic and much better. As even though they are printed they seem to have texture like handmade backdrops if that makes sense, not flat looking, and more 3D.'

'I am sure when people at Uni see the backgrounds they will be wanted by others.'

'A package of beautiful flat-lay papers from @blackvelvetstyling arrived today. So happy with these. They’re wonderful papers: strong, laminated, OK to wipe clean and just £15 each, making them an affordable styling solution that is surprisingly durable and beautifully made.'

'They're proving quite robust: wiping away grease and crumbs each time!'

'The major pros to these are the very affordable prices, easy to store, and look really good. I am going to look to stock as many designs as possible in my studio. For the price and really easy storage option, these are great.'
