I mostly shoot table top except for long coats. So I end up having to take down the paper, fold up the table, reinstall the paper set up the mannequin again......

 

That would give me a solid white and I could leave the paper to the floor behind it, pull it down when I'm tabletop, and cut down on the time to change scenes essentially. Plus, the room I use has 4 windows in it. Even though they have white shutters, I prefer the look of a solid white background. I could move my set up in front of a pair of windows with this, and If I need to take it down, the room can go back to semi Normal.......if you consider any room with 500 pieces of clothing normal.

Link me to an option for the vinyl rolling shade you are looking at.  This sounds interesting, and a roll down option could work great.

This is the one I was looking at.

They make them with texture too but the cost jumps.

This or a projector screen if you see one while you're out.

I think it looks very, very good. Btw, you can also take a photo from a  slight side angle (like what Brianpore does, for instance) and that should take care of the chrome bar looking off center. I can see why it's driving you nuts! The whole thing looks so awesome that the one slight imperfection seems to stand out.

Thanks man. I should have clarified this - the pole is only off center because the jacket is slightly crooked on the mannequin. The mannequin itself is fine.

Plus my home printer.

What's the adv of buying and using this versus just printing off the label from ebay on a white sheet of paper?

If you had to ship one big box of clothes from the east coast to, say, Idaho... what method/carrier would you use? Wifey has packed up a bunch of our daughter's hand-me-downs to be sent off, one box about 20" on a side and weighs probably 40-50 lbs. Is UPS usually cheaper than USPS for heavier stuff like this? Figured some of you guys may know since you have consignors shipping large boxes to you. Last time I went to the UPS Store I left with the distinct feeling that I'd gotten bent over. Do you guys know if there's a significant discount on UPS through Paypal? I suppose I could have my bro-in-law Paypal me a dollar and buy the shipping that way.

Just google search PayPal shipping label and follow the link. Last time I had to ship a first class label to someone who had no transaction with me. As most of u know USPS doesn't offer a first class package shipping option via their website. So I did it through PayPal, it did not require a transaction for me to purchase the label and fill in what ever info I wanted.

Anyways, try and see if u can print out a label purchase via PP and save some money.

Things I Just Don't Get - ebay version

I recently set up a new ebay account to sell a few personally owned items and keep the money separate from my business. On this new account I am not allowed to require immediate payment on a Buy It Now item. WTF is their reasoning on that? Why allow a potential buyer to tie up an item without paying for it?

I have sold dozens of BBBF ties. All had solid colored grosgrain backing.

Call ebay and talk to a person. I am about 95% certain that they will remove the negative feedback for feedback extortion. If the ebay rep doesn't roll over immediately I would contend that the buyer placed the negative with the intent to use it as leverage on the next item.

I just added hibim0305 to my Blocked Bidder list.

I don't know about UPS discount via Paypal, but yes UPS should be cheaper than the PO for big stuff
