Replacing window screens

I am looking for a replacement screen. So far the only Internet picture that I see that matches is this one: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.homeadditionplus.com/images/home_pics/Replace_Window_Screen.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.homeadditionplus.com/window-info/How_To_Replace_Window_Screen.htm&usg=__S5LpsitI4z5FuMV3t74oTP-hBO0=&hH0&wd0&sz#&hl=en&starte&sig2mc-f3aUOe-krEUy0N7wmA&zoom=1&tbnid=EOf-id3maZxbFM:&tbnh 3&tbnw6&ei=pfWbTIioOYH_8Ab_1slz&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dwindow%2Bscreen%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Doff%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26biw%3D1003%26bih%3D560%26tbs%3Disch:10%2C1615&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&durB7&oei=ZPWbTPSeF8GC8gay_siLDQ&esq&page=5&ndsp&ved=1t:429,r:2,s:65&tx&ty3&biw03&bihV0
Anyone know who makes this type? It is 35 years old.

Doesn't look too unusual. Do you have another window in the house with a matching screen? Even if the size isn't exactly the same, one that could be copied for style? Most any full-service window company should be able to fabricate something that will fit, and be close enough in details that nobody will ever notice unless you point it out. Replacing a missing screen is a real common problem- they are used to it. If you don't feel confident taking field measurements, most make house calls for a small fee- measuring the window in question will only take them a few minutes.

Even the Borg has some stock screens or as aemeijers said, any glass company will make one.

The Borgs will have screen material-- most hardware stores will even put it in for you. A window shop will have more selection and not charge a lot more.
I just put in a new Anderson window. I was feeling good the day I ordered it, so I ordered the 'Tru-scene' screen. I really didn't think it would look any different than the regular screens--- until the window was in.
Now I'm looking for Tru-scene type material to do the rest of the windows in the house- at least those on the south side.
I don't have your answer-- just saying that it is worth your while to call a few places and do some web searches, as all screens are not created equal.
[search for things like Truscene, seeVue, Inlighten ]

if you have the frame, many local hardware stores can repair or replace the screen
