The Quick Fix Blackout Pleated Paper Shade Black is not too bad. The shades are kind of thin. They feel like a heavyweight paper, kind of like heavy resume paper. They come with an adhesive tape to hold them to the window, and I found this to work very well. In other reviews I saw people recommended purchasing 3M adhesive tape to ensure the shades stay up, but I found if you clean the window area properly with some alcohol, there was no issue with the shades falling.
There are six shades in the package which is great. The shades were super easy to cut to size. I just followed the instructions provided. Once you have them hung, I found using the supplied plastic clips to hold the shades mostly “closed” while hanging was the best method for me.
They are easy to raise and lower and keep that way by folding them together or releasing them. They do a phenomenal job of blocking the light.
The only real negative I can provide is that one of the blinds was partially torn in two spots which I was able to tape. It was not the most professional looking thing, but for the price point it did the job.
Update – after about six months I removed them and hung new Faux wooden blinds from Lowes. I spent almost $700 after installation. The reason I finally replaced the Blackout Pleated Paper Shades was more about my pride than anything else. They remained easy to use and did an admirable job of blocking light. They actually blocked light better than my new blinds do.
I recommend these blinds for anyone who does not have a large chunk of money to put up blinds or in a temporary situation like an apartment. Clean the area you are installing the blinds on very well and they will stay hung. Take care while raising and lowering them and they should last you a good while, like mine did.

Now these do exactly what they say they are going to do, but there is on thing they don't mention. THESE DO NOT WORK WELL IN AREAS THAT GET ABOVE A CERTAIN TEMPERATURE. The Adhesive on the back shrinks up and they fall. I purchased these for my add-on room in California that sometimes gets hot due to the weather or the Marvin Gaye soundtrack (talking like 85-100 degrees). Within 2 weeks of 87 degree peek weather, one dropped and the others drooped in the corners like a sad clown nose. I'll need to add some more tape or possibly just purchase curtains.
So if you are putting them up in an area that doesn't get heated, I think you'll be alright. CHEERS and GOOD LUCK.
These shades are paper and marketed as being "temporary". They are essentially a really long piece of pleated, thick, black construction paper with a tape strip on the top that is used to affix it to your window frame. There is no roller or pull cord mechanism, as they are simply folded up/down to the desired level and then held in place by two black clips (they are included and are much like chip-clips). You install them by simply measuring your window opening and cutting the shade with a razor-edge blade, such as a box cutter. The shade is pliable enough I just held it up into to the opening, bending the excess portion of the shade outward, and then marked my cut with a white crayon. I used a straight edge to hold my place, and then with several swipes of the blade, they were cut to size. Remove the strip that covers the adhesive and then you're ready to stick it in place. I attached mine to the metal portion of the inside of the window pane. I removed my blinds, however that wasn't necessary. These shades would have fit just fine behind them. It took a total of 20 minutes to cut and install 3 shades.
Now, I will say that part of the reason these work so well for me is due to my color schemes. My bedroom is full of gray, purple and black. So the black shades showing act as an accent to all of that. Had it not been, I would have probably left my blinds up, so the shades wouldn't be visible from the inside. The exterior of my house has gray siding with black shutters, so from the outside it looks like I have black roman shades that go with my exterior colors as well.
With regard to the light blocking ability, I have to say I'm impressed. I have one single window on one wall and a double window on another wall. There isn't a glimmer of light visible through my single window. There is a slight amount of light getting through in the middle portion of my double window, however I do have curtains and when they're closed; they seem to trap most of the residual light.
I can't speak of the longevity of the shade just yet, but I'll post an update if needed. However, for the job these do and the price (about $6 each), I wouldn't even mind if I had to reinforce the tape or replace them every once in a while.
See the attached photos (if I can figure out how to attach them) for further details. The photos were taken minutes apart, during a sunny St. Louis afternoon around 4pm. I had no lights on in the home and no flash on the camera.

Now as the title of these shades go, they are paper. So yes they will be a bit flimsy as one can expect from paper shades. Luckily? for you they come in a 6 pack and because they have the same folds and cut sides you are able do double layer them without any issue if you line them up well for less flimsiness and EXTRA BLACKOUT POWER~! *thumbs up for the haters of light*
IN THE BOX: What are you getting when you buy your box of 6 Blackout Pleated Paper Shades is your nicely packed shades (pic1) fit well into a long box and x2 6-pack of clips. (pic2)
SET UP: Measure you window > Measure your shade > Cut with a knife with a bit of edge. (There is almost certainly a better way to do this, but.... yes that happened.) Was almost perfect, they fit a tiny bit too snug so I needed to use scissors on the edges of a few of the folds one by one. :/ Didn't take very long either way.
- This is them up and as you will see. (pic3) Plz Ignore beast on bed. :9
- They ARE paper so .... they are not beast proof. (pic 4) Grrrr.
- The black out! (pic5) Keep in mind I could have been more careful and taken my time to cut the edges better for a perfectly snug complete blackout fit. I mean I did use a kitchen knife to cut them rather quickly. XD
- Now there is a bunch of clips in the box and they most likely work for single layering shades. But they do NOT hold double layers and will go flying when they slide off as they are fairly cheap and not strong as to not damage the paper materials. I will note, I only tried with double layering the shades so they might work just fine for those, you will have to be the judge. :9
If you decide to double shade to keep that nasty light out you will most likely need 2 or 3 larger clips as in this example. (pic 6) which is why I am on here bright and early to order some. :D
For most of the pics I took it was bright and early in the morning so they are not great examples for a review, but hey I'm just having my morning coffee before heading to work. The Blackout pic is however in the daytime so you can see the double layer does work. Only thing I will say is as that I have a one way mirror window film on my window which also keeps a bit of light out and gives my windows a very very light tint to help with that.
I have also read that you will need a stronger glue to hold them up. I have hot had any issue with this even in double layering the shades. So my first guess will be it is dependent on which material you will be sticking them to, humidity, ect. If you live somewhere very hot and are sticking them to metal or varnished wood, perhaps you will want some extra stick. These are on a straight up painted wood frame and no issues on that end.
Hope some of this helps someone out there trying to sleep away your day light. :D
Due to being able to layer, Im thinking I might be able to get away with picking up another color if needed and layering that on top of the double layer black. *Grin* :)
I've removed a star for the cost. You receive what is essentially 6 large pieces of folded paper with a strip of double sided tape on one end. I had the impression (or made the assumption) that this could be raised when needed, but that's not the case.
The light goes through these wannabe blackout curtains cause they're made of thin paper.
The installation sucks since you have to cut it to your dimensions and then stick it to the window but then you cannot fix the lower part (missing glue or something) and you cannot roll it up! It looks sad and simply doesn't do the job.
I really want my money back...
