We are a one stop company for all your printed linen needs as well as non printed. We carry "blanks" (non printed table covers and skirting), spandex, portable trade show tables, even table leg risers to transform your table to demo height.

What Is A Custom Tablecloth?

Custom tablecloths are one of two products. A custom or unusual size table requires a custom tablecloth. We refer to these non printed linens as custom size tablecloths and have a program called A.C.T.S. to manufacture Any Custom Tablecloth Size. In the branding industry, a custom tablecloth is a custom printed tablecloth with a logo, image or message. In addition to branding, it gives a competitive edge with the professional look. In the trade show world, a custom tablecloth is also called a table throw, table cover or table drape. They are synonymous for printed tablecloths.

What Is The Difference and Pros and Cons Of A Printed Tablecloth vs Fitted Tablecloth?

A printed tablecloth is also referred to as a table throw. It is the same product. The "throw" is finished with rounded corners so the fabric will not puddle on the corners. A fitted tablecloth is fitted to the table with the top and all four side panels sewn together. It is available with inverted pleated corners or non pleated. For trade shows, sign in tables and other events where someone will be seated at the table, fitted tablecloths are manufactured with an open back so a staff member can be seated at the table. If storing under the table at trade shows or retail P.O.S., we are one of the few that will have your fitted tablecloth manufactured with slits hidden in the pleated corners on the back side so the entire panel can easily be lifted for easy access under the table for storage. A fitted table cover in our opinion is more elegant, however, a table throw gives much more flexibility in the event that it needs to be used on a different size table whereas a fitted tablecloth will only fit on the exact size table it was manufactured for.

Poly Premier

The basic polyester we use for printing and commonly used at trade shows. It is a good quality poly, 200 G.S.M. (Grams Per Square Meter), manufactured and printed in the United States. 60 fabric stock colors available.  Fire retardant and meets N.F.P.A. testing standards. For more information on the importance of only using logo cloths that are fire retardant, see this informative article F.R. Regulations at trade shows.

Liquid Repellent

These table covers have the same quality and the same sizes and styles are offered as our Poly Premier, but with added treatment that repels water and any other liquids. Instead of spills saturating into the fabric, the spilled liquid gathers into small pools that are easily wiped off with a paper towel, cloth or sponge. Spills will not leave any residue on the table cover. These are ideal for demo tables where drinks will be sampled. View our short, informative liquid repellent video.

Deluxe and Supreme

Enhance your promotion with the finest quality printed linen fabric in the industry. Stand out from your competition with our superior quality Deluxe and Supreme logo printed table runners and table drapes. The Deluxe fabric is 25% heavier weight, excellent quality poly knit, and very wrinkle resistant. The Supreme is 50% heavier weight fabric than the standard trade show poly, top of the line, and practically wrinkle-free. For table runners, we offer the Deluxe fabric upgrade with rod pockets on the table runners. For table drapes, we offer full dye sublimation all over print in the Supreme fabric, and seamless for those wanting the very best. Both upgrade fabrics are also fire retardant.

Spandex

Another way to take your brand or promotion to another level is with our sleek, stylish, wrinkle-free spandex table covers, water drum, and garbage can covers. Form-fitting, snug, contour spandex table covers are sharp, stylish and logos really "pop". With our single color printed spandex table covers, you have 20 fabric colors to select from.  All of our promotional spandex table covers have reinforced heavy duty canvas pockets to stand up to the wear and tear of the trade show industry.

Burlap

Ideal for organic and health food displays. Eco-friendly, promotional burlap tablecloths and table runnersare a great way to brand your image and show you are green. Our printed burlap fabric is 100% refined Jute, made in the U.S.A., and imported burlap, It contains no Formaldehyde or additives. 12 print colors available.

We offer four print options. Depending on your logo, budget, fabric selection, imprint area needed and quantity, you can select from one of our four print methods. 

Single Color

For all single color products, we use a vinyl heat transfer print process. The CAD (Computer Aided Design) tool process cuts the artwork design precisely in the single color selected. The vinyl is then applied to the fabric using a high-temperature press.  If your logo has half-tones, distressed reliefs, or very fine lines, you will need to select the full-color digital print method in the next paragraph. The largest print area available for single color is 48" x 17".  We offer 12 colors to choose one from. 74 fabric colors are available. This is the most economical way to print your logo or message. There are limitations, but with creativity and all our fabric colors, you will have a professional looking product that will showcase your brand at any promotional event.

Full Color

We use the latest full-color digital printing called 4-Dye sublimation which gives the most vibrant results. The dye sub print process requires 2 steps that fully infuses a full-color digital print of photographic quality into the fibers of the linen. The resulting high-resolution full-color print is permanently infused into the threads of the cloth and the cloth can be folded, washed, and used for many years. We use this latest technology on both front panel imprinted tablecloths, table skirts, stage skirts as well as our products where you have the entire fabric to print on; all over logo printed table runners, all over printed tablecloths including our seamless tablecloth line, drapes, backdrops, water drum covers, and garbage can covers with logos. It is also used for customers that only require printing to a certain PMS color without logo or message. See next paragraph.

PMS Color Printing Only

Does your business need tablecloths without a logo, simply in your branded corporate color? We've Got You Covered™. At a lower price than a logo imprinted tablecloth, we will print your linens in any PMS color. Any size linens or napkins in color. In this PMS color print program we have 1100 PMS coded colors listed. Simply select your size and color and we will print using the same dye sublimation application listed above.  Do not find the size or color needed? Simply email or call us with your size and or color requirements and one of our print specialists will immediately handle your request.

Screen Printing

For clients with a logo in only one or two colors requiring large quantities printed at an economical price. Over 70 fabric colors available. As with all our printing options, at our printing department, there are never any set-up charges.

Complete Customization

Unlike most promotional tablecloth companies, having been a trade show promoter myself and now in the printed linen industry for 12 years, I understand the need for custom options to fit your needs and applications. For this reason, not only do we offer fitted tablecloths with the option to be three sided so a staff member can sit at the table, but we also offer the option for hidden slits in the pleated corners our fitted tablecloths which is essential if you will need access under the table for storage. With the hidden slits you can easily lift the entire back panel for storage. We will accommodate any customization need requested. Just recently a client attending a rally requested a 90" X 132" tablecloth which is manufactured with rounded corners (so it will not puddle on the floor in the corners when placed on a table) to be made with square corners and grommets so that they could hang it at a rally. Custom sizes or custom requests, simply let us know your needs.

Need A Logo Designed?

Are you needing a custom printed tablecloth to brand your company but do not have a design yet? Perhaps you know exactly how you want it to look, you just did not have access to a graphic designer.

We know our consumers demand, expect, and deserve much more and we are glad to share our talented graphic designers with you to create the impressive logo you envisioned that only a professional graphic designer with the education and experience can create.
