those 3' x 6' sheet are no longer available in SG for many years, as it is very expensive and also out for fashion.
however you still can get it from Taobao

I believe you still can get A3 size of paper type from Art Friend, which mainly use as printing paper.

Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately I cannot read Chinese hence the taboo site is foreign to me. Don't think Art Friend has the gradation colour paper. Where can I go to get a quality print out that big? What about the stand to which the backdrop is mounted?

You can get prints done in any print shop. There are quite a number in Sunshine plaza.

The "stand" you see in your picture is a board propped up on a table with the printed backdrop clamped into place with binder clips.

Here is my set up for table top product shots, I'm using a plain white color laminating sheet as backdrop, aka formica, the whole sheet is 4' x 8' and I cut it into 3 sheets

just using a step ladder to support it at the back, don't need to use a stand.
