    Now that I look at its gain, for what it's worth, the shapes look like the shapes you see in a kids kaleidoscope.

    Huh...I had a package go to Russia yesterday. Had a hell of a time getting the label to print. It finally did work after about 8 tries...but I ended up having to print it directly from paypal rather than through the ebay tool.

    ^ Update - I got paid from someone from Russia this morning, generated a label without flaw. That email could have been BS.

    This was definitely worth it. I bought this program before I listed my first lot of items, and it was definitely worth the 40 bucks. The only gripe I have is the HTML code for the border around the template is built into the template and can't be changed. For example, I wanted to insert the logo/image I made for my account and I could not place it outside of that border. One really cool thing is the ease in which you can copy and paste into garage sale. I searched eBay suit listings until I found a neat way to organize shipping/payment/policies information and copy and pasted that format into my garage sale template. I think I ended up changing the template a half dozen times before finalizing something last night that I will use from now going forward. It's a lot of fun to play with.

    Could post a screen shot of it later when I am at home...I haven't listed anything with the newest template yet that I finalized last night (I will tomorrow, or this coming Sunday, waiting on new camera to come), but here is my logo:

    All of my auctions for the last month or so have been GarageSale. I had to manually put in the code to open / close the Terms and Conditions text, though.

    I like that, Suited! I need to rework mine soon, I've used it for a year or so, but have since changed the store name...which still encompasses the original name. When I sold collectables, my store was called "Something, Everything and More". I switched to menswear a little over a year ago and was never really happy with the name.
    Then one day I had the clever idea to call it "The S.E.A.M Store" which kinda ties it all in pretty well.

    I drew it in AutoCAD.

    What camera did you go with? I am soon in the market for something a little better. Thinking about a Nikon D3100

    How does it work? I have looked into it a bit, but didn't really get a feel for it. Is it much faster than listing via my ebay templates? I'm always looking to save time, and I feel like I am missing out on something here.

    Nice - I used Paint and some online image editor to make the logo. I just went with a point and shoot, a LUMIX ZS19 that was 20% off. I think it will be alright for my purposes with the right light and backdrop.
