Seamless paper projector screens are commonly touted by do-it-yourself home
theater enthusiasts. The seamless paper that I am talking about is the type
used in photography for backdrops. This paper tends to have a high degree
of reflectiveness which is why it is used in projector screens.
Is Relatively Cheap
The key advantage of seamless paper is obvious. It is cheap. You can buy
several rolls of seamless paper at a much lower cost than you could ever
buy a commercial projector screen. If you are trying to keep the cost as
low as possible there really is not any material that you can buy as
cheaply that will produce the same results.
Is Easy To Use
Another advantage of is that it is pretty easy to use. The paper comes
rolled up so you will not have to wait for it to un-wrinkle itself like you
may have to with blackout cloth or rubberized canvas. You can simply unroll
it, stick it on the wall and immediately have a rudimentary projector
Can Be Found Locally
The third advantage is that this type of seamless paper is readily
available. It should be available at pretty much any photography supply
store. You can certainly order it online, but if there is a local store you
can just go and pick up some of the brightest seamless paper you can find.
As far as disadvantages go the durability is perhaps the biggest
disadvantage of this material. If you get fingerprints on the paper, then
that could be it. If you crease the paper at all then you may have to live
with the crease. It can be a touchy material to deal with, and you will
need to be very careful, unlike vinyl or canvas which are washable you
cannot wash it.
The gain from paper can be unpredictable. There are various levels of
whiteness available, but since the material is not always marketed as
projector screen material usually the vendors will not provide a measure of
the light gain available. You will probably end up having to tweak specific
colors, and if your projector does not provide an adequate number of lumens
the image could be very dissatisfying. It is difficult to know exactly what
sort of picture you are going to get.
A seamless paper projector screen is not for everyone. If your goal is to
keep the cost as low as possible and not worry about wrinkles then it may
be right for you. Otherwise, there are more expensive materials out there
that should yield better and longer lasting results.ted by do-it-yourself
