Original Paper Shades
Redi Shade blinds are low cost and sustainable paper-based temporary shades that are used to maintain privacy and light control while you wait for custom-made window coverings like shutters, blinds or curtains to be made and installed. Shades are available in Light Filter and Blockout versions in 910x2270mm and 1200x2270mm sizes.
These shades can be quickly and easily trimmed to size and installed without tools. They are entirely cordless, with the height adjusted using 2x positioning clips that are supplied with each shade.
Redi Shades are made from sustainable paper-based raw materials and are 100% recyclable at end of life, which is great for the environment.
Redi Shade Arch blinds are low-cost fabric shades used to maintain privacy and light control while you wait for custom-made window coverings like shutters, blinds or curtains to be made and installed.
Arch Shades are available in Light Filter and Blockout versions to suit arch windows to 1828mm wide. They can be quickly and easily trimmed to size and installed without tools.
Arch Shades are entirely cordless and are supplied with a transparent Arch Holder that perfectly retains the arch blind in position. These shades also have a very useful measuring guide on one side to make measuring and trimming to size much simpler!
Redi Shade Arch Shades are made from 100% polyester materials.
Installing Redi Shade blinds
Can my shades be removed and reused?
The adhesive on our Redi Shade blinds, such as Original and Arch Shades, is meant for a one-time application. Anything after that and we cannot guarantee how well or if the shade will hold onto a surface for a second time. We do not offer extra adhesive for our shades nor recommend using a separate adhesive other than what is already pre-applied to them.
Where/what type of surfaces are best to mount shades onto?
The shades should be mounted onto a clean, dry, flat, smooth surface. We recommend using some rubbing alcohol to wipe the surface area down before full shade placement. This will not only prime the area, but will also help remove any residue from previous window treatments.
We do not recommend the shades to be placed on a wallpapered, freshly painted (within 30-90 days), high gloss, or textured surfaces. plasterboard, bare, varnished, or lacquered wood surfaces are also not recommended for shades to be placed on to.
How do I raise and lower the Original style shade?
To raise the shade and allow light to come in, the shade will need to be repleated by hand. Each shade is supplied with two clips that are used to clip the shade to itself, at the desired height you would like. The clips can be placed on either the front of the shade or off to the side. To bring the shade down, gently remove the clips and the shade will fall into place covering the window.
How do I clean my shades?
Original and Original Arch:
– Lightly dust and/or vacuum with upholstery attachment.
– Since they are paper shades any contact with water will ruin the shade.
*Note: Dry cleaning, full immersion in water, strong detergents, or spot
cleaners are not recommended for any Redi Shade products.*
Are shades flame resistant?
No, shades are not flame resistant and should not be near flames or heat sources.
How do I measure/install for an Arch Window?
Original Arch Shades are designed to be installed as an inside mount and are designed to fit perfect arch windows. While you may be able to cut and trim the shade for some imperfect arches, we cannot guarantee they will work for you. The general steps for imperfect arches are listed below. We do not recommend using Original Arch Shades for Eyebrow or Elliptical Windows.
If you need an arch shade for these kinds of arches, we recommend looking at a custom arch solution which RediShade does not offer. Visit your local blind retailer or home improvement store for assistance with these types of shades.
If you choose to use an Original Arch Shade for an imperfect arch we cannot guarantee that it will work.
The general steps for Imperfect Arches:
Place the Arch Shade in your window, fan open. Take a pencil and trace, on the excess material, following the curvature of the window. Remove the shade and
with a sharp pair of scissors, cut off the excess material, following the traced curve. Replace the shade in the window, and mount it down to the sill.

Extremely happy with this purchase. The texture is stunning, visitors have thought that it was actual textured glass. It looks great from both sides.
Take your time and measure thrice with application. My application wasn’t perfect but it still looks great.
We just moved into a new house and bought these for bedroom windows while are shutters are being made. They look great and block out lots of light. Highly recommend!
