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.

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.
They're a non-permanent solution for someone renting.
They're completely light blocking.
They're easy to use.
I had no trouble installing them at all. I just cleaned the window sills and stuck them up. I did add some staples to the ones in my children's room because they tried to rip them down. (Woo ... Toddlers!!!)
PRO TIP: If you have large windows I recommend trimming the excess off the bottom. I have very large windows and I found out with the ones in my room that because the blinds so big they are too heavy to hold themselves up. The blinds will relax after a few days and straighten out a bit. I trimmed them a little each day for about 3 days until they seemed to stop relaxing. Trimming the excess off the bottom solved the weight issue and I've had no problems since.
