Where do you get an 18% gray card?  Is this something you buy at a camera shop?  Can I get it at a craft store?  Is is mounted on foam core so it is rigid?  How big is it?  Do you use it outdoors, or only in shows?
Do you think it is a better idea than using the blue background?

    For the photographers out there —
    Why have you chosen to use the 18% gray card, or blue card, or black card?  What made you select the background color you use? As a viewer, I personally prefer black — I think it makes the colors pop out more, but I’d be interested in a photographers perspective.
