This is for the benefit of people thinking of DIY fixed screen option

I am sharing my experience during making my Home Theatre in 2014 and this need not be the benchmark but only a guidance.

At the starting I was wondering how to get a good carpenter who can understand the application and make a frame accordingly + expertise to fix the screen as proper stretching is crucial for a good screen experience.

If the carpenter makes a mistake of either improper stretching or soils the cloth then we may need to buy another cloth.

Coming across a good carpenter is a difficult task these days as itself we struggle to get a good carpenter for our interior work.

These were the worries before I had started this project.

With these thoughts in mind one day at a traffic junction I had observed a bunch guys putting up a huge banner and painstakingly stretching the flexi banner. With this idea I approached the nearest flexi banner maker and after the outcome I concluded that this is the easiest and better way to make our own DIY screen as these banner makers knew correct method to stretch the screen and hang the screen.
