These roller shades were custom cut in width and sent out in one day. I couldn't believe how fast they arrived. They are a great weight and look very nice. I didn't do a great job measuring the window (don't measure old blinds) so we needed to adjust the hardware a bit to make the roller shades fit. I am very happy.

by newhouse Great choice to cover my windows in my new home
I just moved into my first home and needed to figure out window treatments. I wasn't ready to spend a fortune until I know what works and what looks good. I went for these because of the price and the custom fit, but truthfully I could see sticking with these for a long time. They work perfectly!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopperInKS Not bad for price
Timing had it that we got these shades at a tremendous discount. They've been fine so far. The material is thinner than the shades that were on the windows before, so time will tell how well they hold up. The main problem we had was in ordering them. They were custom sizes so we followed the guidelines on the MEASURE tab at the link, "helpful blinds and shades guide" to measure them. For an outside mount (which we have), the only instruction given for measuring the width is, "measure exactly where the window covering with be." We took that to mean the width of the fabric part, and they came in way too short. After several phone calls and discussions with different sales people at JCP.com and the stores (who all gave different instructions), we took the word of one of them and measured from the tip of the fixed flat pin to the tip of the pin on the other side WITH IT PUSHED IN ALL THE WAY. JCP took back the old shades and reordered them for us with the new measurements, and they came in at the correct size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susan mostly good
I ordered three shades. Two worked well - although the piece that slides into a casing at the bottom of the shade to pull it up or down was cut too long in all shades. The dark gray flat rod extended out past the white shade and against the white window.
The third shade came slightly bent, making it difficult to roll up and down. Also - It was cut very sloppily, with an obvious jagged edge all the way up the right side. The pull rod that slides in was the longest on this one - protruding out past the width of the shade by an inch. I ordered another one to replace the unfortunate shade - and will return it for a refund once the replacement is received and in place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DecoGirl2shop Disappointed
I know many people had good experience with these blinds. Since this was new construction, I was very disappointed in the company who sized the final cut, from what I gave them, as not fitting and covering my window properly. They ended up taking an overall total of 1 1/4" more off, which completely exposed my frame. Plus, the cutting was not even on both sides and each side only covered right to the edge of the glass, at frame and didn't extend covering the window frame. This causes light to escape on the sides.
According to the description in how to measure, which I've done before professionally, it stated that you should take 1/8" off of the total width of window for inside mounting. I did that. Window measured 22 7/8" and after taking off 1/8", it ended being 22 3/4". I can't image taking off 1/8" on each side, as some have commented to do. Then 1/4th of my glass would've been exposed on each side...geez!
I figured since the blinds were so cheap in price,(love the scalloped fringe) I'd deal with it and later ordered something much better. Now as far as the blackout! what blackout? NOT blackout as light still comes through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DextersMom Just what I wanted..
Very pleased with this shade and plan on purchasing more. It was cut maybe just a tad smaller than I wanted but was still good to go for an "inside" mounting. I love the fringed edge and it does help keep the light out. I purchased on sale at a very good price, so overall I give it a two thumbs up.
