D&D 5E DM Screens

What are the best options for a full-height DM screen? I'd like something that I can hang 8.5x11" pieces of paper on vertically.

If you can find one (they're getting a bit rare) the old 1e DM screens were that height. If you need your papers to fully hang without touching the table, put the DM screen on a few short lengths of laid-flat one-by-two (thoguh it won't then stop your dice from rolling away - there's a tradeoff here). :)

Make your own. I steal the cardboard insert from the copy paper and tape four together. I see someone has posted Hammer dog insert one.
On the outside i post player information. On the inside Dm information.
 


I've owned two of those. The first seperated into two screens within a few months, the second held on for about three years before seperating. The thin plastic between the individual screens is very, well, thin.

Also, the pockets are very narrow. You can't put plain paper in them, it just crumples. I had to print on 160gsm card.

The pockets don't fit A4 paper (despite what their web site says). I had to trim 10mm off one edge.

Would not recommend.

I just saw some on Amazon similar to Hammerdog, but not sure if quality is the same. The price was $20 vs $30 Hammerdog. I also see some Wyrmwood ones for $125 that have magnets in the wood that can hold pages.

There are also single, rigid stands you could use, similar to what @jasper is saying, but seem more chaotic to me to have a couple on the table

Yea I can see that happening, but I haven't had issues with the one I got. But vinyl can be a beast to deal with.
