Does sales tax apply?

Sales tax will be applied to any products bought from us and shipped to New York State. We have a corporate office in that state and under New York law sales must be applied at the time of the order.

In a recent development, residents of California will have to pay a "handling fee" for any blinds shipped from Bali or Graber due to their new corporate presence in California.


Do you send catalogs ?

Catalogs are very expensive and although very helpful, we feel or site is more up to date. Catalogs also add to the costs of the blinds, something we do not want to do. Our price are the best in the business and we work to keep them that way!


How long does shipping take?

Unless you have chosen one of our quick ship products that usually ships in 2 days, your products with few exceptions take between 2-3 weeks from the time of ordering. Back ordered items or discontinued products at times will happen and we will make every attempt to notify our customers in a timely fashion. Many manufacturers don't contact us, sadly until they pull the inventory for the product and that is when they let us know that the product is out of stock. This is a very poor way of doing business, but we have no control over this practice.
There will be times that on the same order some products will be made at different locations and will be shipped at different times. Call us with any questions about your order.


Do you charge for shipping?

Our prices include all freight charges For a product 94 inches and up in width, there is a flat fee of $75 to $80 added to your order depending on the manufacturer. Some charge more than others. Our Brand Vertical Blinds are an exception. Depending on size and quantity, shipping may be up to $150.00. We will contact you if this is the case.
Hawaii and Alaska:
Most of our manufacturers now charge various amounts to ship to these 2 states, no two manufacturers are alike.

Due to a new California ruling regarding internet sales shipped to a California residence who buy any products from Springs Window Fashions(Bali or Graber) , we are being charged a handling fee that is represented on all our California customer's carts at the time of sale. The amount varies on the amount purchased. This applies to only California residents. www.BlindsExpress.com has no control over this matter.

Feel free to call us with any shipping questions. Customer service- 1.800.836.4488 or emailing us: info@blindsexpress.com


Methods of alternative payments?

We accept Master Card, Visa and Discover charge cards. American Express is not a card we accept due to their excessive merchant fees. We accept money orders or certified checks. The checks need to be in our possession before the order can be placed. We have no additional plans for payment. These plans always add pricing to the product.


How do I change an order once placed?

An internet order is sent immediately to your email. You need to check that email as on as you get it. If you do not get an email confirmation shortly after placing the order, call us at 1.800.836.4488. The order did not process or you typed in the wrong email address. If it is a verbal order, you need to listen to the read back carefully. If an error is made during the read back process you will be given the opportunity to correct the error. Once you have given an acceptance the order will be placed as read back to you.


Do you ship outside the continental US?

We do not ship outside of the US. We do make an occasional exception, a phone call to our order desk will answer any questions you might have. Hawaii and Alaska are always an adjusted freight charge.


When is my credit card charged?

Your credit card is charged at the time of the order. These are custom blinds made specifically for your home. These products are not returnable products for any reason other than defect or damage.


Will I receive a confirmation ,installation instructions and all mounting hardware?

Confirmation is addressed above and instructions always come with the blind as well as all hardware.


How do I check the status of my order?
