I had to wait a month as well, but a big chunk of that was James waiting formSeymourAV to get more material in stock.

He should at least be honest about it. No harm in telling someone 20 business days if thats what it is going to take. I went through Ebay and I had him confirm numerous times 10 business days. Did he ship yours yet?

I guess I should just call or email them and see what's going on. I still have no idea if they got my order. I just have the notice from paypal. I know it will take a while, I just want some acknowledgement that they received my order.

nope not yet.. He left me a message Thursday and said they would work throughout the weekend to try to get caught up a little and mine should ship this morning and I will receive a shipping notification when it ships so I hope to get some word soon on that.

Basically his explination was they had 2 shipments late over the holidays and it put them behind which I completely understand. But it would be nice to have better communication because this is my forst proj/screen so I can't wait to get this thing up to enjoy it already

I was told that if they get caught up with everything, mine should ship out on the 5th. He will let me know if it will be later.

^ Take your time!! Make sure to stretch it evenly across the top and bottom. Be patient and expect some wrinkles.

Is the Jamestown screen paintable? Best guess. Seems like probably they are from the descriptions. I plan on ordering a white screen but I want to keep my options open for a high contrast grey solution if ambient light becomes a problem.

No why would it be that way? All screen manufacturers make the screen flush with the back side of the frame.

They make drywall screws for metal studs. I would use the same to attach the metal cleat that James supplies.

Here is a link to the type to use with metal studs clickie

Keep in mind you CAN use traditional drywall screws with metal studs but a finer thread screw will be much easier.

What kind of hardware is included in the box for hanging? Does he give you any drywall anchors or screws?

^ You get 2 french cleats, drywall screws to attach one cleat to the wall and some wood screws to attach the other cleat to the back of the frame.

@domingos38, Yes I am sure they sell them at HD, Lowes or any hardware store.

So, the frame only hangs from that one point where the cleat is? I was thinking you would have to hang it from all four corners of the screen.

Just in case anyone was wondering, I called James about this. He says the screen material is PVC/vinyl based, and he sees no reason it should not be paintable. I agree, it should take paint nicely.

This fact sold the screen for me, if I am not happy with the image quality I can change it to be whatever I want via DIY means. Ordered a 120" white

Wider screens are provided with two french cleats. I used two piano hinges, so I could access behind the screen more easily.

^ My screen is 121" wide and only came with 1 cleat. It seems fine but one day I suppose it could come crashing to the ground.....that would only mean it's time to upgrade!!
