Once I started emailing, he did respond quickly though. Will report back on the quality once I have it installed. Hopefully this weekend.
A quick update on my Jamestown screen. Finally was ready to install it this weekend, and I have to say it was a breeze. The frame went together easy (almost didn't need instructions, but the included instructions were helpful). Once the frame was assembled, it was time to install the Seymour Centerstage XD material. I was kind of nervous about this part since my closest experience to stretching screen fabric was putting plastic on windows in our old house (Could never get rid of all the wrinkles even with the hairdryer
!) But I digress...
The material went in easy, and if you take your time and work opposite sides like the instructions say, it isn't hard to be wrinkle free. I only had to re-stretch 3-4 spots to get it nice and smooth. Installing the hanger bars was painless as well. The entire process took right about 2 hours for me from un-boxing to staring at the screen on my wall. This was a one person project, so it probably could have gone a bit faster with another set of hands.
I now have a nice 120" 2.35:1 screen that looks great! Extremely happy that I went with Jamestown instead of full DIY. Kudos James on a great product!
