It's been a while!
RS-MaxxMudd LL if you gotta roll yet want performance superior to a basic White or a OTS paint like SS
Try to have the Sintra cut so as to leave at least 2" additional material around the edges past the 112" screen area. This extra area will both allow you to mount the Sintra easily via screws shot through the extra area into the wall, as well as let you have the ability to cover those screws with an overlay of trim. Also, by rolling out past the prescribed Screen area, you assure yourself of a completely uniform coverage out to the edges of the actual Screen area, where the Trim them overlays that edge.
Of course you can just stick the Sintra to the wall with adhesive, and simply "Butt" the edges of the Trim against the specified perimeter of the screen, but let me pass this bit of experienced-based advice along.
It's far more easier to simply miter cut the trim to the exact size lengths to create the Frame, wrap the peices, and overlay on top the Sintra...attaching the trim to the Sintra by driving 1- 1/4" Finish nails through the Trim / Sintra and setting the Finish nails below the surface of the Velvet with a Nail Punch. If you try "Butting", your measurements must be absolutely precise, or you could wind up having issues getting the pieces to fit completely flush against the edges of the Sintra.
