Does anyone else out there do Blinds? :lol I do mostly film, very little rollup shades(about .001%), and I'd like to get into blinds, but don't know how to start.

Where does one get the stuff from? :hmmm How do you price it? :spit

Help! does anyone know?

HunterDouglas my boy, HunterDouglas. There on the net. They sell to everyone. Just be careful, it's not like burning a piece of film. You screw up a $5000.00 blind order where your only making 10 to 15% margins.......put a fork in ya - your done.

I know its an old post, but I have just got into blinds as well, with 60% profit there are a great alternative to film if your clients is not keen on film, some are fabrics which are transparent and reflective on the back, I am very impressed with them so far, and are simple to fit compared to film.

The window blinds market is 10 or 20 times the size of the window film market, I'm surprised this forum area doesn't see more action :bingo

You are probably right, I am getting a good responce with regards to the blinds, and it seems that blind companies here only have fancy fabric that all they really do is block out the view and sun, my ones are transparent or blackout or semi transparent, with solar rejection up to 92% for film and 85% for some fabrics.

Most of my dollars come from contract installations for blinds. Home Depot being a major ticket. This is were I get most of my window film customers.

I started selling interior shutters last year too. Real good money in those.

By I do not sell blinds and probably never will.
