Anyone ever use one of these? http://www.onlineeei.com/drapes.cfm they seem sturdy, but plain. set up time seems to be a bit high, tho

Those are mainly used as trade show booth deviders and backdrops. I used to set those up many years (close to 30?) ago at hotels for conventions. I would recomend using [url=http://web.me.com/magicjeff/MagicBackdrops/Home.html]Jeff Jones Backdrops [/url] over the ones you referenced in a heartbeat.

I don't see setup time listed anywhere, but they seem like a pretty good value to me.

I use the same type of thing in my shows expect I saved about 300 bucks by using PVC pipe painted black then bought a nice looking fabric for the back drop as for the stands just fill up a small bucked of cement and it stays up nice and sturdy

Don't think I'd want to tote around buckets of cement for a show.

That definitely is NOT the same thing. One is a budget rigged unprofessional backdrop, and the other is a professional industry standard and has been for many years.

Speaking of the Pipe & Drape as in the original post, does anyone know of a place that has custom Pipe & Drape fabrics such as a glittery or custom material (other than just the light standard material)?
