Tape butcher paper over the window opening
(do not use wrapping paper as it is not
thick enough), allowing plenty of overlap (Use paper that has never been
folded; a template can have no folds or
creases) and draw
an outline of the window opening by
tracing over the inside edge of
the window frame. Note: If the
shade is an outside mount, add the desired
amount of overlap to the window outline and
draw a second outline around it to match the
shape of the finished shade.
Cut out your arch and mark the dimensions on
the template. Write your name address,
phone number and email address on the
template, and mark the ROOM SIDE (as opposed
to the outdoors) and TOP. Roll up the
template and place it in a mailing tube to
include with the order. Do not fold the template.
Folds distort the shape of the
template making an accurate cut of the
material impossible and our fabricators will
not make your arch.
Submit your order via the website and get
your order number (YBXXXXX) to include on the
mailing tube when you send it. The size
that you order and the size
of your template must be the same. If they
are different, your arch will be made to the
size of your template.
NOTE: If you are ordering more than
one shade requiring a template, please make
one template for each, even if the windows
appear to be the same size. We
apologize, but our fabricators will not
manufacture any shade without its own
template. Taking these steps will
ensure your shade properly fits your window.
Thank you for your understanding.
Packaging your TemplateWhen preparing to send your
template, locate a mailing tube that is slightly longer than
the height of your template. Carefully roll the
completed template into a tube and insert into the mailer
tube. Securely tape/fasten the end to be sure the
template will not be damaged in shipment.
