    Anyone know where you can get velvet type adhesive tape for a home made screen?

    Already tried the local haberdashery. Losers never had any!

    Thanks in advance :)

    Does anyone know where I could get any tape / material to act as a black border?

    I was thinking about maybe using the non hooked side of adhesive Velcro. Anyone tried it?

    I too am on the lookout for material for a home-made black border :)
    So what have people used with their screens ?

    Cheers,

    Currently mine doesn't have a border but I was planning on using 25mm black velvet ribbon and some double sided tape.

    I'm interested to hear what other people have tried.

    I would like some information on this too. I have just bought a screen with a border, but would like to shrink the viewable area a bit but keep the black borders.

    Won't taping black material to the screen surface damage it?

    Hello everyone, I'm a newbie in this forum. Just like to say I've used flat black paint for my border and turned out really good.

    I've used BO cloth. Didn't cost me much, just under $80 for the
    whole screen.

    The best stuff to use is this 3 inch black velvet tape. You can find it on Ebay.com by searching for (3" black velvet border tape). This sells for around $49.99 USD for a 45 foot roll.

    I looked into this at one stage.

    Try searching for flock tape, and search on Ebay for sorcerer velvet.
