9. Do It Yourself > 77. Construct a Screen for Projection

Construct a Screen for Projection

If you’ve got a projection-based system, you’ve probably already realized that without a screen, projectors are just about useless. Good screens can cost big bucks, unless you know how to build one yourself!

With digital projectors as cheap as they are today it’s a shame the screen is still so expensive. Many screens out there cost more than budget projectors do. However, you can get a decent screen from numerous online vendors for a few hundred dollars. (The larger fixed screens with fancy screen fabrics and nice masking systems you’d like to have can cost several thousand dollars.) Given my experiences with samples of the hyped screen fabrics out there my preference is definitely blackout fabric and my own frame for a total cost of about $50.
