Roller blinds consist of a fabric and a roller. The special design rotates the shaft, folding or unrolling the roll. Moreover, it is possible to fix the fabric at any level of the window. This can be done using the side strips.
Unlike blinds, roller blinds are a single fabric that moves up and down, while blinds are made of parallel horizontal or vertical plates.
Printed roller blinds are of two types: open and closed. Their mechanism of action is similar, they differ mainly in design. The open view includes a shaft and a special bar, thanks to which the roll hangs evenly. In this case, the entire product is mounted on a wall or frame.
The closed view of roller blinds is more difficult to install. It has a box that covers the working shaft. Therefore, when minimized, its pattern will not be visible. And due to the side slats, you can adjust the illumination of the room.

Roller blinds with photo printing can be created using three technologies:
- ultraviolet printing;

UV printing carried out by printing on an inkjet printer. The device applies a special paint, which dries on the material under the influence of ultraviolet rays. Thanks to this, this technology has received such a name. Roller blinds with this print can withstand cleaning and frequent folding.
Solvent's Seal uses paints on a special basis, they penetrate the canvas and corrode the thin top layer. Due to this, the patterns are bright and rich. However, this technology has a disadvantage: it can only be used on special fabrics. The material must be durable, opaque, dust-repellent and easy to clean.

But the main advantage of thermal printing is the environmental friendliness of the technology due to the use of natural water-based paints.
The main task of curtains is to protect from light. According to this criterion, roller blinds are divided into the following types:
- light scattering;
- dimming (Dim-Out);
- reflective (Black-Out);

But Black-Out fabrics do not transmit light at all, they are most often 3D printed. These curtains are suitable for those who like to sleep in complete darkness. Blinds are often chosen for darkroom or home theater rooms.
