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 Three-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

rollerblindThis is where the blind screws to the window frame or wall and stands proud of the wall or frame. You must add at least 5cm 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. We subtract 3.2cm from the fabric width to allow for brackets. The finished blind including brackets will equal your selected width.


Step 2: Choose your material

We have 2 fabrics for our personalised roller blinds, both providing a completely different look, feel and even purpose. Our Standard fabric 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 the Standard material, 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 UK.


Step 3: Choose your cord options

You really do get to customise every aspect of your bespoke roller blinds. For the cord, first, choose which side you'd like it on. This could depend on whether you're right or left handed, or where the blinds are to be fitted and which side has the easiest access. Secondly, choose your cord style. It comes as standard in white plastic, or for an extra cost, give your blinds a stylish silver metallic cord. 


Step 4: Upload your photos

Now it's the fun part. You can choose a single image, background colours, text overlays or create a photo collage using your favourite family snaps. Simply select more than one photo, choose your preferred style from our ready-made collages or move the images yourself for a custom made collage


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.


Safety Cord Control Mechanism

All roller blinds 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, pulls too hard on the cord, the clip will come apart. This is to protect children who can accidentally get cords wrapped around their neck. To avoid this happening when you open or shut your blinds, pull the cord gently, guiding it along with your hands. 


Child Safety For All Fitted Blinds UK

Please keep cords out of the reach of young children particularly towards toddlers 18 - 36 months especially in bedrooms. 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:

  • A safety breaker piece will be supplied, with any blind with cords and/or chains.
  • We advise the recommended distance from the floor to the bottom of the chain will be at least 80cm.
  • We supply the cord length at 2/3rds the length of your chosen drop.
  • A warning notice comes attached to your roller blind.
  • Installation instructions will be provided and must be available once the blind has been fitted.
  • There will be a warning notice on the product packaging.
  • Our company name and date of manufacture are included on the roller blind fabric.

These safety measures will be applied to every blind supplied by Contrado Imaging Ltd.

Fire Retardant Roller Blind Fabric

Please note: Both fabrics are fire retardant, and safe for use in homes. 

fire-rated-fabric

DIN 4102-1 Fire Certified
Blackout  Standard     

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.

Please note: We will add a few rolls to the top of your blind by mirroring your image, ensuring that the colours match up. This will stop the pole being displayed when your blind is fully closed. You need to ensure that you do not pull the blind further than the lower limit.

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Made to measure

Your blinds are made to order and made to measure as well. Using specialist eco-friendly inks our technicians fuse your design to the fibres deep in the fabric, creating a permanent print which has vivid colour, 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 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 white in colour.

Animal print to photo reproduction

Bringing the ocean beachfront to you is possible when you make your own blinds. Printed with a gorgeous image of the sea and blue skies, your blinds will make every day feel like you're on holiday.

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.
