Custom-Printed Roller Blinds With Singers' Album Covers

Whether you’re into Madonna, Megadeath or One Direction, there’s a fair chance you’ve got a top-10 list of all-time favourite songs and albums. And your top tunes can easily turn into great decoration for your home by choosing an album cover to have custom printed roller blind .

The choice is endless, the process is quick and easy and there’s definitely something to suit everyone in the family.

You can choose an album cover that simply reminds you of a specific time. As digital music threatens the very concept of album art, those classic album images of the 1960s, 70s and 80s – The Beatles’ Abbey Road, The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street, The Velvet Underground’s Andy Warhol Banana, Meatloaf’s Bat Out Of Hell and Bruce Springsteen’s Born in The USA – have become great pieces of art in themselves and are beautifully reminiscent of the time in which they were recorded.

Or you could choose an album cover just because of the way it looks. If you dig a little deeper, there are album covers which were simply wonderful right from the get-go. You might not remember The Small Faces’ Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake, for example, but the artwork is outstanding, equally Lemon Jelly’s Lost Horizons is a simple but stunning design which would work wonders as a centrepiece for any room.

And then there’s simply the fan’s choice. Where once we were restricted to buying posters of popstars, digital printing now means we can think far more grandly about how we display our love for our favourite music acts.

The elder musos amongst us might choose a classic Bob Dylan cover for their man-cave, or the Kiwi kids might go for something more homespun: Lorde, Stan Walker, David Dallas or Ladi6. NZBlinds has just put the finishing touches to a blind based on Pink Floyd’s 1997 “Back Catalogue” release – a wonderful piece of art featuring details from their eye-catching albums painted on to the backs of models.

“The process was so simple. The customer ordered via the site – he just wanted something for his man cave. He supplied the image to us, we re-sized it and sent him a proof. When he said he was happy with it, we printed it and sent it out.” 

“I reckon it will spend more time down than up – it’s certainly eye-catching!”
