Looking for a creative idea for your product photo backgrounds? A stack of card stock might be just what you need!
If you sell small products such as jewelry, the rainbow of colors that usually come in a pad of card stock can be perfect backgrounds to set off your items. This works particularly well if most of your items are similar in color, like the beautiful jewelry from the An Original Jewelry Etsy shop, for example:
Card stock backgrounds can help you in the following ways:
Saving You Money
A pad of card stock is fairly inexpensive, and you can find it in any arts-crafts store.
Bringing Consistency to Your Online Shop
Using consistent textured backgrounds (even with different colors) makes all of your shots look similar.
Creating Visual Interest
As long as your products aren’t too varied (different colors or styles), a variety of background colors can bring a fun, vibrant look to your shop.
Quick tip: If the pieces of card stock are small, you’ll probably need to zoom in close to the object so that the background will fill the entire frame of the picture. Use your camera’s macro mode to produce a clear, crisp shot.
Have fun creating visual interest in your product photos!
