Sorry... I swear, this'll be my last post :D

I've got the 80x105 Walmart BO on order but that might be an issue as my screen (57x102) might max out the BO and I hear there's a hem I might run into :(

SOOOOOO.... what's a good: opaque (guess it dosen't matter cause I'll paint it anyway), non-perf, SMOOTH, CHEAP fabric to get in bigger sizes?

It was posted earlier to try this http://www.dazian.com/cgi-bin/page.p...=55&group_id=:

Also know by Dazian as "scenery canvas" smoother weave than cotton duck- you can order as small as 2yds or 108x72. Pliable enough to stretch around wood frame. Paintable, but add gesso or kilz primer to really make a smooth tight surface for painting.
That sound like it'd work? I know texutre won't matter much at viewing distances.. but I'm wondering if this is the best cheap route to go.. .heck for $10+ shipping.. almost can't be beat. Oh and I'll be using Best's Heavy Duty Stretcher Bars too.
