Thanks guys. I am looking more for trays, signs, and nicknacks. Bottles and cans would not be the major focus.
@Sea Monkey
Then my suggestion would fit quite well.

Re: Fresca & TaB

This is the very earliest version of the third generation, Note the large 'FRESCA' and absence of the rectangular banner, also has the 'NO CYCLAMATE' statement.

Try brighter light.
Yes I could do that....one of the tricks with this was doing it with as much natural light as possible. I had tried doing this in a light box of sorts but the background just comes out blackish/grey.....the background need to stay as dark as possible.

Thank you for that....I'm going to try the white carboard. I suppose this was more of an artistic flare and I wouldn't use this background to document a can.
