Answer: 
You would order a size big enough to fit your window. Then you would keep the blinds pleated (before you unfold them--keep them clipped), then hold them up to the window, like a yard stick--- and I mark with an ink pen. I allow a little more space, so no light gets in (I have three windows together and like to overlap them.)
Then take them to the counter or cutting board, and I use a serrated bread Read More

I allow a little more space, so no light gets in (I have three windows together and like to overlap them.)
Then take them to the counter or cutting board, and I use a serrated bread knife (I find this works better for a clean line). Very easy to cut since these are paper.
Hope this helps! Very easy and simple. I always allow a little more room on each side. Better to have wider than too cut too short. You do not want sun peaking in sides. Read Less

Answer: 
Leave them pleated and clipped. Hold them up to your window and mark with pen. Take them to a flat surface or counter (cutting board like) and cut with a bread knife (kind with jagged edges, works best). It is just paper, so easy to cut.

Hello Jim,
Thank you for your question.
Redi Shade Paper Black Out Window Shades are designed to be trimmed at home for the perfect fit. These shades are available in two widths – 36 inches wide and 48 inches wide. These shades are made of durable paper and are easily trimmed.
To trim your shade, based on your window measurements, measure the equivalent width of the shade then using a sharp utility knife cut off the excess portion of the shade you do not need. Next, peel the liner from the adhesive strip at the top of the shade and hang in your window. You’re done!
For your 24 inch window width example the 36 inch x 72 inch Redi Shade Paper Black Out Window Shade would be a great solution. The shades are available in stores (item # 744445) or online (internet #202617373, Model # 1602212).

depends on the type of blinds. Surface mount such as miniblinds you want to take an outside measurement.

depends on the type of blinds. Surface mount such as miniblinds you want to take an outside measurement. From the outside edge of your vertical trim to the outside edge of the opposing vertical trim board. For internal mount such as cellular top down bottom up you want to take an inside measurement. Measure from the vertical window jamb,across the sash to the other window jamb. This is sometimes easier if you measure one way and put a mark at an even # (say 20 inches) then measure back the other way to your mark and add the two #s. otherwise you have to bend your tape into the corner which makes for inprecise measurements.

With them being paper I'm a bit leary about fire. The sun comes in my windows with such heat after a time it causes my mini blinds to curl. The room on the other end of the house those blinds will just melt.
So will they hold up to the heat and not catch fire?

I have very high heat in South Florida (temperatures over 100 in summer) am on the top 15th floor over looking the water on the side facing the sun....with 133 inches of glass windows all the way to the ceiling 10 foot ceilings. The sun is brutal. Very hot, and the windows are like hot to the touch in the summer. They really help keep it cool. My A/C is on 65 and it is 65 degrees right now.. Before the shades it would not go below 75. No problem with fire. My maintenance people have seen them and thought was a great idea.
I have had mine up for almost a year. Never any issues. Through the entire summer.
However, what I found works best is buy two sets. I put one on top of the other, (double layered it). This gives better protection so when the sun fades the back it does not bleed through. The front stays nice and black --solid. I also overlap the three windows so no seam for light to get in.
It has now been six months and I just ordered a third set. I will put it on top of the other two. The reason behind this---. After wear and tear, the new set on top, makes it look fresh and new, with the added protection of no bleed through with fading on the reverse.
I also use the few inches excess I cut off to place over the seams (where the windows meet), so it looks custom. Unless you get up close, you think they are very expensive pleated shades. I am a designer and I love them! Very pleased and works perfectly.
I keep mine clipped about 6-10 inches above my window sill. I like to see out with my water view. It cuts all the sun with the high ceilings. This way I am not moving them up and down. Works better if you keep them stationary. The more you try and move them up and down, they will become worn looking. Think of paper...

Hi and thank you for your question. Our paper shades are not combustible and are not treated with any kind of chemical. The heat from the sun might cause the paper to warp eventually, however the shades will not catch on fire. Thank you for your interest in this product.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easiest blinds I ever put up Was desperate to find blinds that would block out the morning sun that were easy to put up. Well I found them. If you know how to measure, and peel and stick, this is the product for you. They are one of the best purchases I have ever made. Definitely would recommend them! Thank you, Home Depot, for giving me back my sleep. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by These black out shades don't. These are supposed to black out shades, but they do not completely close in either direction. When cranking them so that they will deflect the sun (rounded edge out) they do not completely block people from looking in. When cranking them so that they close, (rounded edge in) the sun still filters through and if you lie within 6 feet of the window you have an excellent view of the sky. (see the pictures below) I have never seen a shade so badly designed and then advertised as "black out". October 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good to keep sun out Great for apartments no nailing or damage to wood. My friend had them and she had them up for a long time. Easy to put up and in summer the black keeps the rooms cooler. I dressed mine up with scarfs. August 6, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Look good and very inexpensive for the look. The paper shades have to be carefully handled since they tend to wrinkle or crinkle very easily. Must be hung perfectly level. November 2, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works, it's affordable and it looks nice...FINALLY! These have been a life changer! I have been doing shift work for over 12 years and I have never found an affordable, effective, yet visually pleasing and convenient option to darken my room for daytime sleep. I've used roller shades, mini-blinds, curtains, room darkening curtain panels, cardboard, blankets, you name it. I've found that the most effective method to block light (cardboard and blankets) is the most hideous to look at. The more visually pleasing options (blinds, shades) inevitably allow glaring rays of light in that always seem to find my face. The past few years, I’ve let the visually pleasing factor outweigh the effectiveness factor, but I finally got tired of it. So, I went on the search for a solution and came across these shades on several different sites. These shades are paper and marketed as being “temporary”. They are essentially a really long piece of pleated, thick, black construction paper with a tape strip on the top that is used to affix it to your window frame. There is no roller or pull cord mechanism, as they are simply folded up/down to the desired level and then held in place by two black clips (they are included and are much like chip-clips). You install them by simply measuring your window opening and cutting the shade with a razor-edge blade, such as a box cutter. The shade is pliable enough I just held it up into to the opening, bending the excess portion of the shade outward, and then marked my cut with a white crayon. I used a straight edge to hold my place, and then with several swipes of the blade, they were cut to size. Remove the strip that covers the adhesive and then you’re ready to stick it in place. I attached mine to the metal portion of the inside of the window pane. I removed my blinds, however that wasn’t necessary. These shades would have fit just fine behind them. It took a total of 20 minutes to cut and install 3 shades. Now, I will say that part of the reason these work so well for me is due to my color schemes. My bedroom is full of gray, purple and black. So the black shades showing act as an accent to all of that. Had it not been, I would have probably left my blinds up, so the shades wouldn’t be visible from the inside. The exterior of my house has gray siding with black shutters, so from the outside it looks like I have black roman shades that go with my exterior colors as well. With regard to the light blocking ability, I have to say I’m impressed. I have one single window on one wall and a double window on another wall. There isn’t a glimmer of light visible through my single window. There is a slight amount of light getting through in the middle portion of my double window, however I do have curtains and when they’re closed; they seem to trap most of the residual light. I can’t speak of the longevity of the shade just yet, but I’ll post an update if needed. However, for the job these do and the price (about $6 each), I wouldn’t even mind if I had to reinforce the tape or replace them every once in a while. See the attached photos for further details. These photos were taken minutes apart, during a sunny St. Louis afternoon around 4pm. I had no lights on in the home and no flash on the camera. August 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! The blinds arrived in great shape. Easy to size and install. Looks great on the windows and have an extra pair to install if something goes wrong with these. Great value! June 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product as Pictured Great light blocker! I use it in the childrens bedroom, especially during the summer months when going to sleep is not necessarily dark out yet. August 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product. Great deal. Even greater delivery. I have used these blackout paper "shades' several times. They last for years when handled properly. I needed new ones to replace worn old ones and found the best price at Home Depot... and FREE home delivery. There were delivered within days. Saved me a long trip to the local store which is not convenient for me. They went up without issue. It's a handy and easy to use product with great results. I would recommend this product to anyone. Home Depot scores a hit with the way this ordered was handled and delivered. August 19, 2014
