Dan awesome looking posters!! I'm planning on doing the same for my theater when I finally get everything finished. I have two questions:

1. It looks like you added a black border around your pictures that shows on the front instead of wrapping to the back like most have done. It looks really nice! Did you also blur or vignette the edges of the poster and the corners before printing? It looks that way from your photos.

2. Why did you choose Silky Faille? I know the other common option is Performance Knit. Any reason why you went with SF and would you recommend it? I know it isn't as stretchy, but I've also heard the colors may not be as accurate or vibrant.

panino, thanks for the kind words! I'll answer what I can.

1) I had my graphics guy make the images so they "faded to black" and also do a 4" bleed. I wanted to make sure I didn't have a hard line I needed to try and follow, and thought it would be a good look.

2) I choose silky faille based on what I read in the thread here. Because the nature of the images I didn't want them stretching, and SF is what was recommended when I asked. I'll admit I didn't read that entire thread as it's really long.

The posters look amazing. Everyone who sees them is blown away. The colors pop...people don't think they're fabric.

Your theater looks great, congrats. Very elegant. I’m a big fan of having movie posters on our theaters, and yours look very good. Size and placement seem perfect.

How is the view from the back? I have a similar distance from my screen in my build, and the calculator seems to think i need an 18" riser :S

Still enjoying the octane seats?

Just seeing this...I need to come to this site more! Still loving the Octane seats, and the view from the back is great! A lot of people actually prefer the back. I personally like to be front and center, but there are many that prefer back and center. LOL
