Table skirts are a must-have when marketing your brand in a public arena. Not only do they cover unsightly table, they prove to be a hassle-free solution used to further advertise a particular brand, product or name. Choose from 4 available and popular styles; drapes, runners, stretch covers, and convertibles. To start with, you will want to be sure your fabric is made out of machine washable, wrinkle resistant, and most importantly, fire-retardant material, like a premium poly-twill fabric. (Most are, but check to be absolutely sure) Table throws and covers make a big impact and require little effort on your part. All you have to do is drape them over 4, 6, or 8 foot table, in most cases. This article discusses the four most popular styles in greater detail.
Table skirting is generally comprised of fluted fabric (resembling a skirt) that wraps around the perimeter of the table and attaches to a table top section of the same color using Velcro. A table skirt can also be described as a simple table cover which simply drapes over the banquet table to create an acceptable presentation. Plain table covers like drapes, are designed to fit most 4, 6, or 8 foot table perfectly. Most of these allow for rear seating comfortably with the back remaining shorter for legs to fit underneath. Additionally, most are also seamed at the back to properly align with your table. Table covers are available in several different colors, with many allowing for logo and text imprinting in a 1, 2, or 3 color process. This printing process is either heat transferred onto the front of your table skirt or completed through a more complex, dye sublimation process.
Table covers, also known as convertible table throws are versatile and so easy to use. Whether you have a 6 foot table for one event, but need a smaller 4 foot table for your next venue, you no longer have to buy 2 covers because one will suffice. Convertible table throws are perfect for situations where table sizes change from show to show. They include Velcro strips sewn into the reverse side of the cloth which allow for the size reduction. These versatile table covers can fit larger table as well as smaller table without trouble. They simply convert using attached Velcro, holding the extra fabric in place with full coverage on all 4 sides.
Runners are smaller pieces of fabric usually draped on top of the table cloths and used as an accent piece. Custom printed logos and graphics are typically printed on the front to highlight your company’s name or organization. Runners are either plain or include electronically printed logos and designs to further attract the attention of patrons or clients. Typically 30 or 60 inches wide, table runners serve as table accents usually consisting of an opposing color than the underlying table cover. A table runner, also known as a table drape, covers the center and front areas of a contrasting table cover or skirt. A full-color table runner is ideal for anyone traveling to events where the display table is show-supplied. Unlike most table throws, a table runner fits any size table to customize your exhibit quickly and efficiently. This way, you can save money and just buy one table drape for all of your marketing events.
