For Fabric Roman Shades, the factory has implemented several new production processes to help reduce production times including hiring and training new employees for shade production and investing in new automated equipment for cutting fabrics.

Defective Sample Books
It has come to our attention that some of the Natural Shade sample books shipped previously have swatch card issues where the fabric falls off the backing of the swatch card. This issue has been corrected.
If your sample book has swatches that are coming loose, please follow the link below to request a new book to be sent to you free of charge.

We have also been working with our factory to make our Exact Lift cordless control a better and more reliable system.
Exact Lift shades in all styles can now be ordered as narrow as 22" with lengths up to 72". This change applies for shades in all fabrics except solar fabrics. Solar Fabrics include: Aria, Cadenza, Capella, Forte, Metro, Ossia, Primo, and Tempo.
Our factory has also made an improvement in the production of Exact Lift shades which we expect will reduce the need to adjust tension due to shipping. Exact Lift shades will now have a tension screw cover, which will hold the tension screw in place and maintain the factory setting for shades in transit.
Product guides have been updated to reflect this change and can be downloaded on the franchisee toolkit.

New Roller Shade Options
We are working hard with the factory to finish the development of the new options we will be introducing for the Roller Shade Collection this year.
We had expected to introduce stage two of our 2023 collection launch this month with new cassette brackets and a low-cost flat valance.
Following the installation testing for these two options, we found there were some minor modifications needed in order to make these ready for launch.
We want to make sure any new products we offer are easy to install and have the quality you can expect to see from our collections, and we appreciate your patience as we add the finishing touches for these new options.
We will keep you informed on new expected launch dates.
All pre-ordered 2023 Roller Shade Collection sample books have been shipped. Place new sample book orders by visiting the Franchisee Toolkit. Books are currently in stock with a limited supply.
