Ok, Calumet Photo is having an awesome sale on their seamless paper. $21.74 with free shipping. I can't even get that price for paper here locally. So, I'm going to get a few rolls.
I've already ordered Arctic White and I have Savage Studio Gray (light gray) and either True Blue or Sky Blue (can't remember which one).
So, should I go for a girlie color like pink or purple, go for a neutral color like green, or get the smoke gray (Calumet's Thunder Gray). I'm stumped!! I want them all, but I can just get one more roll.
What would you do?
Here are the ones I'm looking at....
Oh, that's a tough one. Since you already have a white and gray for the neutral colors, I think it would be fun to go with a pink, since you already have a blue. But then I have two girls and don't really take photos of other people, so I tend to go girly. But then on the other hand, it would be nice to get more use out of it. The green would be nice, because you could add props to make it really fit a lot of different "themes". I guess it all depends on what you want to do. Sorry, I was NO help!
Do you have a stand for your seamless? If yes, what stand do you use? This is a great price and I would LOVE to get some, but I don't have a stand and not sure how I would hang it.
Thanks for your indecision, Tara No, it's a tough one because I want them ALL!! But, I really do need to pick just one. I am starting to lean towards the leaf green...I'll wait to see what others think.
I want to get a new stand SO BAD!! Right now I'm using a PVC stand DH made for me. It IS really nice, it can be adjusted for different heights, functions just as it's supposed to, and only cost about 30 bucks in materials. BUT, it takes up a lot of room and I'd love something more compact and portable. I'm going to try to save up for a nice Savage port-a-stand.
There are a lot of DIY paper stand ideas out there, here's a quick one I found on google search. You can also get by without a stand. Just put the roll on the floor and unravel the paper and tape it to a wall. Gives the same effect, you just need to have wall space big enough.
Thanks for the links! I think the green is a good choice, because like I said before, you can make it work for a bunch of different "themes". Good luck choosing. I can see why you want them ALL!!!
As I don't PERSONALLY have a grey, that's what *I* would choose. but since you already have a light grey plus a black and white, I would probably go for the green if I were you. It's a nice versatile color that can be used for boys, girls, adults, and kids alike.
Ooh! Do you know how long the sale lasts? I may have to order some as well! I just used seamless for the first time this weekend and I loved it! I only have gray so I would love to get another color or two!
I think the leaf green would be a good choice! It could go well with pink if your daughter is wearing that, yet is could be used for boys as well. I was thinking about a turquoisy kind of blue for the same reason. Off to go check out the colors...
Charcoal or the green ... you're right, that's a tough decision!
I want to get one now too. I wonder if it would fit on my PVC stand ... (I use only fabric right now)

I have savage coral which is a nice pink and I love it. I even put Liam on it, only for valentines day though. I really really really love my savage bone, but you can probably create that with the white.
great price, locally here they are like $30 a roll, so with free shipping, thats awesome!
Katie, the sale lasts until Feb 28th. You can find Calumet on Amazon, too. Calumet's website wasn't showing the sale price in the cart, so I had to buy from their amazon store. But, it looks like they've got that figured out now. There are a lot more options on their website than on Amazon.
Gwen, the thing with the seamless compared to fabric is how top heavy the stand gets. My stand has T legs on it so that it is pretty stable. Depending on how your leg base is set up, it may work.
Marcie, I'm SO jealous you have bone!! I wanted that SO bad but my local store didn't carry it, that's why I got the studio gray. But with Calumet's prices, there's probably a similar color But I think I've got neutral covered.
I'm really leaning towards that green. It would go with so many clothing colors...purple, yellow, pink, blue, red, etc. That's probably the most logical choice for universal. As you can tell with my V-day card, I use the blue with Rylee. It goes great with pinks and yellows! I think the pink paper would just be a bit much and would really limit what I'd be able to use with it. Sorry, just thinking out loud.
