    Title says it all. I purchased Blackout fabric today and am going to build my screen soon. In people's experience, which side is best to use? Shiny side or not shiny side? Thanks in advance!!!

    I would post this question over on AVS and see what the folks there think at the screens forum.

    Mine is rubberized on one side. Maybe we have different materials. I guess that I used the shinier cloth side.

    Stretch it out and test on both sides, remember DIY has all kinds of tweaks built in.

    I went with the Shiny side for my LP350.
    Never got around to flipping it around even though it'd
    take about 10 seconds to do so with my screen.
    (it's hanging from plant hooks on wires)

    I used the rubbery side as it would be easier to clean...but I ended up painting mine anyway so it didn't make much difference in the end[​IMG]
