When you got the screen with the velcro already on it, did it look like it was crinkling the velcro from being under tension when the velcro was attached ? Or am I missing something ? Maybe the velcro tape itself had the same elasticity as the brite-white fabric ?
What I'd like to do is have the Vutec fabric attached to a black felt backing that wraps around to the front and provides a black masking border. The top edge of this border would have nylon "J" shaped (but flipped over into hooks) that would ride in a track at the top. It would roll up onto a dowel on the right side of the screen and unroll through the track and roll back up on the left side dowel to provide tension. The bottom edge would have tall skinny weights sewn in to keep it taut vertically. Yes, it will pull across manually, although I'm wondering if I can have it rewind spring-loaded -- I don't want to have to crank it back.
I wonder if Vutec sent me what I asked for ??
The sample swatch I got from Vutec was very flimsy of the bright-white and had no backing -- it was really just a bit thicker than latex dish-washing glove material, although not as elastic.
I also got a sample of the Vuflex Pro, which is very stiff, and has a black coating on the back. It would probably work great for me, but I don't like the texture it imparts to my DILA image.
Mark Foster recommended the Brite-white because it has no texture, I thought. My sample fits that description, but it does seem like it needs backing.
