    I can see it now, 1000 hits in a day on a green plastic sliding board.

    They do have BIN and BINOBO items in their bi- (tri-) weekly roundups...and I've seen Etsy items sneak in recently.

    I probably should be..... is anyone??

    Looking into this a bit more it seems like setting up a Zebra thermal label printer is actually a huge PIA with the ebay label system....

    You need a dress shirt and tie on that mannequin before you put a jacket on it.

    Personal preference, but yes. I think it "frames" the jacket. Real photographers will know better, but to my untrained eye it just looks off with the top cut off.

    It also lets the buyer see how it will potentially look as a complete outfit. Jackets by themselves are sexy. But seeing how it'll look when you're all suited up is a panty dropper.

    Bought a pallet of HP laser printers at a DRMO auction that I used for work, the HP4's are work horses. It's like buying a '72 Nova, they're easy to fix because you can see everything under the hood. Keep one loaded with the 2x page labels. I can't remember the last time I had to buy new toner, labels are not toner heavy. That said, a label printer has to be the way to go for more than 30-40 labels a week.

    Anyone sell an item and then immediately see it listed by the buyer using your photos? Not really a big deal but if I'm flipping something I at least take my own photos. I guess if I were a regular seller I'd use a watermark, but hey, more power to 'em.
