Tim Sherwood from Prairie Lakes Church in Cedar Falls, IA brings us these massive, printed faux stained glass windows
They went the printed vinyl banner route. They had a staff member hand draw an image they wanted printed and sent the specs to a print shop to get it printed onto 10mm vinyl sign material. They ordered them in black and white so they could do color changes with lights. The large panels measured 8′ wide by 16′ tall. They were stapled to some 2×2′s at the top and bottom for hanging and weight. They were lit from both the front and the rear by a total of 3 Mac 600′s each.
They also had some smaller 4×8′ panels made and printed in color that they’d roll out to block the drums and give the teaching pastor a backdrop for their multisite messages. They were lit with 2 Par Source 4′s from the rear and source 4 zooms from the front catwalk. Their multi-sites had the same large windows and were using Elation Opti Tri Pars and ETC Selador VividR’s. All together for the 6 large panels, 3 smaller ones, and some other supplies this set came in right around $1,200.
Special thanks to all the folks involved with getting this together:
