When printing these panels, I understand I need to add the black border for wrapping around the frame, but do I make the printed area the exact size of the face of the frame? Or do I subtract a little to account for stretching the fabric? Or possibly slightly oversized print?

I'd want the printed area to be the exact size of the face of the frame, without any of the printed area to show on the sides. I assume it's not an exact science?

Thanks

Planning on adding some panels to my theater.
I found something that I like. Just curious if anybody used these.
Material is canvas. Wondering if it's acoustic.

Canvas is NOT acoustically transparent. It's a reflective surface, especially if it's painted.

Thanks Dave.

Now I have to hunt for the high quality image that I like and get it printed.

so I went there today.

Theres nothing these guys cant do. Ill write up more info when I get home. They seem very experienced and work on big big projects, this small home stuff is for them more of a side thing.

what most would like to know is copyright. If you do poliester prints, then its okay as you send images through email, but cotton fabric prints are uploaded online and you have to own images.

they can do prints 10' by 300' on poliester prints, crazy, and they have a material that reflects minimum amounts of light (for projector rooms important)

My next step is getting images edited and organized, wat would be easiest software out there to create collages, etc. Im a total noob with photography editing. im shoot and print type of guy.

Anyways, price for cotton lrints is about 25-30$ Per YARD (width is 58")
This is ridicolously cheap compared to

Poliester printing is much more, 5$/sqf

HEY EVERYONE.

So, I went on a whirlwind trip over the past 5 days, and finally am going to get back home tonight.

I have about 7 new PMs about image work, and it looks like (from the subject of the messages) that they all are from people in this thread, or who have recently read some of this thread, I just wanted to let everyone know that I am going to be a bit backlogged with getting through the PMs and the requests.

I will try to at least respond to them all tomorrow (Monday) to get the ball rolling for those that have been wondering if I fell off the face of the earth or something.

Hopefully you all (if you live in the U.S.) had a great Thanksgiving.

Is printing on cotton better or polyester? If the width is 58 (and assuming lenght to be 36), you can only print 1 2x3(or larger) on it I think, since you will need to extra fabric to wrap around the frame as well..

When I contacted them, they suggested their 6 oz. poplin matt white fabric (and quoted on sqft basis). If you go the cotton route, please let me know which one you picked and how it turns out.

Thank you!

Round panels?

Not sure that I've seen them done. I almost went with some interlocking round panels back when I was first designing my theater space, but opted not to mainly for simplicity sake.

The larger the round panels the nicer the fabric will look. You will want something fairly stretchy so that you can easily "stretch" any wrinkles or folds out of the fabric from being put on a round surface.

So I haven't seen it done, but it certainly can be done.
