Tell us about your business.I moved into an apartment that did not include window coverings. After researching window shades, curtains, blinds, and all sorts of window coverings online and at retail outlets I was unable to find a unique creative option. I ended up making my own window shades for this apartment and this idea evolved into a business plan. We design our vector graphics and patterns specifically for our window shades. Our window shades are custom made to the customer's dimensions and design choice. We handle the order through the whole process of design, printing, and fabrication. We sell our window shades online at our website, at our etsy site, and at local retailers in the Columbus area. We also offer our graphics as canvas posters as well. We sell these posters at local retailers and at our etsy store.
