Learn About Printed Window Shades
What is a Custom Window Shade?
Custom printed window shades are a SignGrafx exclusive. A window shade that allows you to put any image or customized message on a functional commercial proven window shade system. Our window shades have been used in a wide variety of retail environments for a number of different reasons. The window shade can help you cut down on light pollution, keeps your location cooler by blocking thermal radiation, and allows you another avenue in which to brand your store.
All you have to do is provide the graphics and the dimensions, and we can build a product suited to your needs. You can choose to install your window shade inside the mullions, outside the mullions, in a hanging or horizontally installed position. You can choose from opaque or non-opaque materials and you can stretch one image across multiple windows (as shown at left) for a truly unique effect.
What Is The Maximum Size I Can Order?
Typically storefront window areas are between 36" and 71" And our setup is meant to handle these as expeditiously as possible. But, if you have windows that are larger than this, it is still possible that we can produce these shades for you, too. You will certainly need to call us ( 1-800-392-9860 ) to discuss your window's dimensions and goals.
Caring For Your Custom Window Shade
Caring for your new SignGrafx custom window shade is a snap. If you want to wash your window shade, simply remove it from its mounting clips and clean it with mild soapy water and a cloth. Don't use harsh chemical cleaners, rubbing alcohol, or solvents to clean your shade as this may have a detrimental effect on your custom graphic. If you are unsure about your cleaning, test on an inconspicuous area and evaluate.
Custom Window Shades That Are Not See-Thru?
If you desire a custom window shade that is not see through, we can certainly accomodate this as well. Custom Window Shades from Signgrafx can be made to be 100% opaque as well. They will NOT be blackout curtains but they will have no perforations that allow a certain amount of light in. Just choose the opaque shade option when you design online and you'll be all set!
Are The Window Shades Safe For Food Prep Areas?
Yes! One of the major industries that have taken advantage of our custom window shades has been in the food service industry. Your window shades will be a perfect fit in this sort of environment due to their ability to be easily cleaned and the fact that they are completely hypo-allergenic.

1. How many colors can I have in my product and does it change the price?
There is no restriction on the colors you can have in your roller shade. The shades are produced digitally and thus can have unlimited colors, text, images, etc.
2. Will the printed product look exactly like it does on my screen?
Not exactly. All monitors are different and the printing process uses slightly different colors than monitors use in order to produce window shades. Your window shade will be very close to the color you specify but it will not be exact. If you need precision, please call us at 1-800-392-9860 to discuss your needs.
3. What format should my images be in?
The online design tool can accept JPG, PNG, and EPS formats.
4. How can I tell if my image is good enough?
Generally speaking if you found the image on the internet, it is not good enough. It's also probably copyright infringement too. But, in order to determine if your image is good enough for window shade production, you can do this quick math problem to see.
You want to make a window shade that was 36" x 24" and you want an image to cover the entire area.
You can take those numbers and add two 0's to it. They are now 3600 x 2400
Find the pixel count on the image you have (in windows, right click and hit properties and then find where it says image size) and compare.
If its close, you're probably good to go. You can be off by as much as 20% and still get an acceptable product. If your image is too low quality, someone from SignGrafx will contact you about it anyway, so don't worry!
5. Can SignGrafx help me design my product?
Sure. But you would need to call our associates at 1-800-392-9860 to discuss your needs.
6. How do I delete the white space from around my picture/logo?
If you have a JPG image you will have trouble doing this unless you have photoshop. Even if you have photoshop, it is not very easy to do. If you need images which do not have white space, You should try to locate the EPS version of the artwork in question as it generally does not have this issue.
7. Where can I find high quality artwork if I don't have any?
You can get inexpensive artwork from istockphoto and bigstockphoto if you need some added boost to your window shade designs! Check them out! If you can't find what you're looking for give us a call at 1-800-392-9860 and maybe we can help!
1. Do I have to sign up in order to purchase?
No. You can order without setting up an account. But, if you want to save your designs for later use you will need to set up an account.
