    after the success of my first screen I'm going to make another , It will be of the same style, a rod top and bottom, and to store simply roll it up. This time I will buy some proper fabric.

    What I'm looking for is some fabric (gain about 1.0) that is quite stiff to roll, eg I would say as stiff as a sheet of 80g/m paper, (when you hold the paper on an end it droops under its own weight around an approx radius of 40mm or so)

    Does anyone have any ideas? apart from paper that is

    You would have to use the grey side as the writing on the white side of the tyvek. the widest I've seen is 1.5m.
