If it's small items you can use those tents? Or chair/tabletop studio setup?

art friend or fancy paper will have what you need,

my favorite is using laminate sheet aka formical, it come in 4'x8', it can clean easier and can last very long. one of the studio photographers best kept trade secret.

yes, evershine sells laminate sheets, I cut them in pieces myself, you can get this cutter to do a very nice job.
I also use the same cutter to cut acrylic sheet. :)

aiyah, thought the shop cut for you.. hahha


if TS is interested, formica costs around $80 per sheet depending on colour, texture & quality. It's huge though, at least 2.5m x 1m. Can forget about taking bus or train. Drive or take taxi home instead. Handle with care, sharp edges can and will cut your skin.
