Our custom 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 1.96" (5cm) to the width. Recess: provide the exact dimensions. Input these figures into the design tool to start creating your own blinds.
The blind goes inside the 'box' of the window. We need to know the precise dimensions. We subtract 1.25" from the fabric width to allow for brackets. The finished blind including brackets will equal your selected width.
We have 2 fabrics for our personalized roller blinds, both providing a completely different look, feel and even purpose. Our stiff translucent is decorative, textured and lets some light shine through without being transparent at all. These are perfect for conservatories when you want the hue of the sunshine but without it glaring into your face. You cannot see through stiff translucent, but some light shines through. Our Blackout fabric does what it says on the tin; blocks out all light, making them the ideal blinds for babies nurseries, bedrooms, and even cinema rooms. This material also has waterproof qualities so they work well in bathrooms and as kitchen roller blinds.
Step 3: Choose your cord options
Step 4: Upload your photos
Now it's the fun part. You can choose a single image, background colors, text overlays or create a photo collage using your favorite family snaps. Simply select more than 1 photo, choose your preferred style from our ready-made collages or move the images yourself for a custom made
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.
Note: We add 2-3 wraps of extra fabric at the top of your image. We mirror your design in most cases, so when the blind is fully extended the metal pole is not exposed. Make sure you do not extend the roller blind past the lower limit of your window as this may cause the fabric to fall off in years to come. If you select blackout material, the reverse is black in color.
All window shaded with pictures have a cord control that can give rise to safety concerns with children. Please keep the cord out of reach of children by fitting and using the cord clip supplied.
How to attach the cord clip: Take each part of the clear plastic clip and line up the last 'ball' on the ends of the cord string. Press the 'ball' into the holes so you hear a 'click'. To fix the 2 ends together, slot the 2 clips into one another as if you were making a full square. (Push it against your finger for support.) You should hear a clear 'snap'.
How it works: If a child, or anyone,
See below for the child safety regulations in regards to roller blind cords. For extra precaution, 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.
Child Safety Regulations mean that all blinds have to comply with EN13120. Contrado Imaging Ltd takes the following measures to comply:
These safety measures will be applied to every blind supplied by Contrado Imaging Ltd.
Roller blinds max print dims
Stiff translucent: up to 53 x 118 / 118 x 53 inch
Blackout: up to 53 x 197 / 197 x 53 inch
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 2.16" - 2.36". 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.
Please note: We will add a few rolls to the top of your blind by mirroring your image, ensuring that the colors match up. This will stop the pole being displayed when your blind is fully down. Ensure that you keep this part rolled around the blind, as it adds strength. This bit will not show in the design interface - we'll take care of it!

Your window shades with pictures are made to order and made to measure as well. Using specialist eco-friendly inks, our technicians fuse your design to the fibers deep in the fabric, creating a long-lasting print which has vivid color, with intricate detailing.
We add two to three wraps of extra fabric at the top of your image. We mirror your design in most cases, so when the custom photo blinds are fully extended, the metal pole is not exposed. Make sure you do not extend the roller blind past the lower limit of your window as this may cause the fabric to fall off. If you select blackout material, the reverse is white in color.
