Can I sew two 60in wide Milliskin Matte together to create a 120in tall screen without visible sewing line in the middle?
I woulkd like to create a 16 feet long x 10feet tall REAR projection screen.
Would the line in the middle be very noticeable....i would use 3 projector (4000 lumens each) to project it from behind.
Thanks!

Hi,the rear projection screen will have the visible sewing line, As below photo.
I suggest you buy a 16ft*10ft rear projection screen without jointed line,Or take it as front projection screen.

I agree that there is likely no way to do this without there being a visible seam. The overlap of the material from behind will not only have a visible seam from the front, but will likely produce an extremely visible shadow from the rear when projection is active. This will likely produce a black line that goes right up (or across) the entire screen where they are stitched together.

You could look at something like this...

Not sure of your budget, but this seems to fit the size.

As well, if you are building a frame, you can get rear projection material from Carl's Place...
