Blackout Cloth Projector Screen Material is a do-it-yourself screen building favorite for those just entering the projection scene! This front projection blackout fabric surface is the starting point at which all other screen surfaces are compared. Blackout Cloth's matte white surface and gain of 1.0 diffuse light in all directions so the image can be seen from any angle.

    • Blackout Cloth ships folded by default, however, select sizes have a packaging option to ship rolled on a tube for an additional fee. In the DIY market there is a wide range of comfort levels, skill sets and abilities. If you are at all concerned about folds and wrinkles you may want to consider ordering your material rolled, if available. Please note screens where the shortest dimension exceeds 116" would require freight shipping, which is not available online. See our Freight Shipping Information, in the FAQ, for more information on obtaining a freight quote. *Handling Time & Delivery
    • Tube Shipping TIP:  If you're buying Blackout Cloth then budget is your top priority. Here's our Big Tip to Save on Tube Shipping! Instead of a 110-inch tall cut of this item, for a better value, buy the 105-in. tall Flexi products. FlexiWhite (dark environment) and FlexiGray (low light) are higher-grade products and at only 5 inches shorter may save you money on shipping carrier tube length fees. Carl's Place works hard to get you the best value for your money. You're Welcome.

Tip:  Don’t forget to Buy Black Felt Tape for a professional-looking, contrast-boosting border (sold separately). Also see Our Awesome FAQ.
