Traditional shop blinds at The Sports Bar & Grill, Islington

Deans traditional shop blinds have been made in pretty much the same way since we first started making them back in the late nineteenth century, however, today we are able to take advantage of some modern technology without compromising the traditional look which our clients value. The hard wood traditional blinds boxing and front lath is carefully hand painted, as it was back then but now we use environmentally sound water-based paint rather than the rather unpleasant lead based variety used by our forebears. These two traditional shop blinds on the Islington Sports Bar and Grill have a unique cover design. Using our bespoke RAGS® system of graphics application we have been able to print the valances of the blinds in two colours to match the logo appearing on the main cover. The logo on the main cover is also of special note and you can see from the close up image alongside how details this design is. Only the use of our special process has made such a defined graphic possible on the blind.
