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 brand new showroom in Monterey.

Advanced Blind Window Blinds

Local Manufacturer of Window Coverings

Advanced Blind & Shade is currently Santa Cruz County’s only full line manufacturer of window coverings. We are the largest retail supplier in Santa Cruz County, selling over 1000 new blinds and shades every month. We’re proud to now offer our same great selection to North Monterey County, San Jose and greater Santa Clara County. We also still clean blinds, and offer full repair service for most brands and styles.

Advanced Blind & Shade is committed to high quality, high service, and low prices. We are experts at blinds and shades – we do nothing else. Our in-home measuring and consultations are always free, with no obligation. We’re confident that when you’re ready to improve the look and functionality of your blinds or shades, even after shopping other stores, you’ll choose us and like so many others, become a life-long customer. We look forward to serving you.
