Our History

Advanced Blind & Shade was started in 1991 by two young men, a van outfitted for ultrasonic blind cleaning and a dream. Since then our company has grown to over 20 employees, several vans, extensive warehouse and manufacturing facilities and two brilliant showrooms. One in Santa Cruz and our showroom in Monterey.Our products are locally made “Made Right-Made Right Here”. Because we are locally owned and locally manufactured, we strive to bring you the best design and product to fit your needs. Our products are affordable with high quality materials. Because our products are made locally, we are able to oversee the quality. We invest in our community by hiring locally. We offer a large selection of products specializing in Shutters, Roller Shades, Cellular Blinds, Roman Shades, 2″ Blinds, Sheer Shades, Mini Blinds, Woven Woods, Vertical Blinds, and Motorized Shades.
