Customize Your RV with Printed Shades from Magne Shade

Posted on: October 29, 2019 at 5:20 pm, in

Want to add some character to your RV and show off your personality? Then don’t settle for a plain black shade; go for one of Magne Shade’s custom-printed shades instead. Turn heads on the road and show off the things you and your family love. If you want to know more about our custom printed shades, read on…

How to get a printed shade

It’s simple; just select the “custom print” option when ordering your RV shade and selecting its fabric type. You can either upload a photo you’ve taken yourself or enter the Photo ID from one of our recommended stock photo sites – Bigstock Photos or Dreamstime. We’ll add custom printing to your order for an extra price – $200 for class B/C windshields, $395 for class A windshields. The cost of the stock image from one of the above websites is included in the price. Try to avoid just taking an image you find through a Google search as you may not have permission to use this.

How to take high-quality photos for your shade

Considering the dimensions of your windshield, you should choose an image that’s oriented horizontally rather than vertically, i.e. a landscape image. Try not to choose a crowded image with details going all the way to the edge. The edges of the image are likely to get cut off for most windshields, so make sure the details you like are nice and central.

Photos you use from the stock image websites will be high-quality and ready to use on your shade. If you choose to take your own photo, you need to make sure that its quality is good enough to be printed in a large format. We recommend a minimum resolution of 300 pixels/inch. Photos taken on smartphones may not be up to scratch, so check their properties before you submit them.

Choosing an image for your printed shade

When it comes to choosing an image to be displayed on your motorhome, the opportunities are practically endless. You might want an impressive landscape or landmark, like the Grand Canyon. Animal photos are also a popular choice. Or why not choose something a little more abstract and artistic? Browsing those stock photo websites will give you lots of ideas.

If you’re looking for something a little more personal, you could choose a photo you took on one of your family holidays, or the logo of your favorite sports team. If you use your RV for commercial purposes, then you could even get your company logo printed on the shade.

If you’re ready to spruce up your motor home, choose your image and contact us to get your custom shades printed.
