Picture Roller Blinds: How it Works
Our photo blinds look amazing and really add a touch of elegance to the home. To get the best results and ensure your blinds are designed and installed to perfection, follow our instructions and read our Safety & Fitting guide. Please also read our Safety Cord Control information below for how to safely use your blinds. If all care and installation instructions followed correctly, photo blinds have a 3 year guarantee on print, material & mechanism.
Step 1: Measure your window/frame
Measuring the dimensions is crucial to a successful custom roller blind installation. First, you need to decide how you want to mount your roller blinds - see the options below. Once you've decided, you then need to input the width and height dimensions as specified for each mounting style. Relief: add 5cm to the width. Recess: provide the exact dimensions. Input these figures into the design tool to start creating your own blinds.
Relief mount photo blinds
This is where the blind screws to the window frame or wall and stands proud of the wall or frame. You must include at least 5cms (1.96 inches) in width to house the spindle fittings as well as the personalised blind.
Recess mount photo blinds
The blind goes inside the 'box' of the window. We need to know the precise dimensions of the recess. Then we subtract 3.2cm (1.25 inches) from print width to allow for brackets in recess. The finished blind including brackets will equal your selected width.
Step 5: Double check your design
Use our zoom and preview functionality to double check your design and ensure it's exactly the way you want it. Whilst we will contact you regarding low quality images, any spellings or positioning of images is not up to us to rectify should there be an error.

Personalised Roller Blind Prices And Ordering
You need to carefully check the dimensions of your window and look up dimension the photo blinds price on the next page by clicking start design above. When you know you have correctly identified the photo blinds size you can see the price and place your image or design at the exact dimensions of your print in the preview system. We will custom make it to the dimensions you provide so it will look as you design it.
In addition to custom sizing, you have options of choose cord left or cord right, for your personalised blinds as well as the material type. Standard (lets some light through) or Blackout which is also the waterproof version and being waterproof ideal for bathrooms and kitchen blinds.
We offer a high level of customisation from any size, two type of material, full custom imaging, choice of the cord left or right hand side (useful!) and the even type of cord from white beaded or silver metallic cord.
Important: We add 2-3 wraps of extra fabric at the top of your image, this is so when the blind is fully extended the metal pole is not exposed. Make sure you do not extend the roller blind down past the lower limit of your window as this may cause the fabric to fall off the pole in years to come. If you select blackout material, the reverse is black in colour.
Note: Roller blinds have a cord control and like any cord can give rise to safety concerns with children. Please keep the cord out of reach of children by fitting and using a cord clip (supplied). Please see below for the latest child safety regulations in regards to roller blind cords. For safety even with a safety device in place, we recommend that you move furniture such as cots, beds, side chairs away from windows fitted with a roller blind that has a side cord control mechanism.

Combine education with decoration and print an old style vintage map onto your small roller blinds. When you're washing up at the sink you can plan your next trip, or lie in bed dreaming of lands far away.
Design kids roller blinds for their bedrooms using pictures of their favourite cartoon, hobby or animal. The blackout fabric would be a good choice so they can get a better night's sleep and won't complain when it's too light for bedtime in the summer.
Fire Retardant Roller Blind Fabric
Please note: Both fabrics are fire retardant, and safe for use in homes.
Please note: The total thickness of your photo blind, once fully rolled (including the pole) is between 5.5 - 6cm. We advise to check the measurements of your window frame, and the distance between the frame and the ceiling, to ensure the window opens properly, without the blinds obstructing them.
