Where is the best place to buy it?
What is a reasonable price?
What size do I need?
What kind of stand do I "need"?
What else do I need to know?

I am new to this but I am going today to buy some so I thought I would tell you what I know. Not sure if Artist and display is just a WI store but that is the only local store near me that has it. I asked Amber the other day and she said B&H photo which is online. I think the 53'' runs about 38.00 but this is my first time buying it so not sure if that is a great price
The rolls I have been looking at come in 2 sizes 53''x12yards or 107''x12yards.
I bought my stand from ebay not sure what company but it was pretty cheap.
ARRRRRGH! I lost my rather long winded post (but maybe that's for the best).
I have the 107" seamless from b&h. The cost for the roll was only about $40, but the shipping costs nearly doubled that. So be aware if you have to order by mail.
I have a telescoping stand that complete disassembles and fits nicely in a bag in my closet. This is a must for me as I don't have any place I can leave it up. I know some folks have built stands out of pvc pipe. That's light weight and easy to find. Not sure how well it would handle the weight of the 107" roll.
i have 3 rolls of seamless, all are 53". It serves it's purpose for me with 1-2 people. I struggle with 4 as it's not wide enough but have stretched the canvas in post and it worked out. I don't really want the bigger one as i take my seamless to other people's homes if do a session there. I got my stand on ebay as well, and it extends to about 7-8 feet or something.
I started out with Thunder Grey. versitile colour i think, and it looks nice too.
