should i always photo the tag/thinness factor?

Post by sazzvintag » Fri Nov 05, 2010 8:51 am

Selling question-
should i always photo the tag and hold the shirt up to the light?
or do you think describing the tag and thinness factor are enough?

i've been shooting tshirts on a mannequin and it kinda hides how thin the shirt is- but looks better display-wise.

many thanks for your responses!

Collectors of the sought after tees like to see the tag - if you don't show it they will probably ask...so I always just show them all.

And some people prefer/avoid those near see through pieces, so if it was one, I would show how thin it was.

As a buyer, I find it to be a pain in the ass if there's no tag. Sometimes a description works, like "Screen Stars red tag", but if you were to say, for example, "Hanes 100% cotton", that could mean many things. Then I have to message you for a pic. I say always put a pic no matter what. Thin-ness, I don't care either way, I'm pretty much buying for resale and if it's thin I would just say so in the auction.
