Printed roller shades are the modern window art. Every time you roll these shades down, you can look at an image that is attractive and a delight to see. If you purchase the shades for your business rather than your home, you can imprint company logos or themes on the shades. If you are curious to learn more about how these shades are made, the following is provided.
The Custom Art Print Process Crosses over into Window Treatments
Art prints are made by selecting an uploaded image to reproduce. Usually, the artist has created an original work of art, a drawing, or an oil painting. The original is scanned and the scanned image of the original is uploaded into an art print machine. The art print machine mass produces paper prints that are duplicates of the original.
The same process is used for printing roller shades. The difference here is that the giant rolls of paper used for making art prints are swapped out for shade material, a polyester blend of fibers. The fiber rolls are imprinted with the images you choose and then cut free of the printing machine before they are added to their respective rollers.
Choosing Your Designs
Most companies offering printed roller shades have thousands of designs in stock and online for you to choose from. If you do not see something you like or you want something to cover the windows at your office building, upload images of what you would like printed, preferably in full color. Make sure the colors are exactly as you want them because the shade printing company will take these images and put them into their printing machines. The shades will be printed with images sized to fit the shades you order and printed with the color scheme you uploaded for your order.
Choosing the Shades and Features
When you place an order, you can request the length and width of your shades. You can also make the shades manual or automatic, meaning that you either roll them up on your own using drawstrings, or you can use a motor located at the top of each roller. If you select the latter, you will receive a remote control that allows you to open and close the shades anywhere in the room without having to get up from your seat or your desk to open and close the shades. Mark your options on your order form.
