When you choose a table cover for your next trade show event, the fabric you choose is the foundation of the overall design. You need a table cover fabric that is durable and easy to clean, and also can benefit from one that minimizes wrinkles.

FLS Banners provides the options for not only custom printing and styles, but multiple fabric options as well. These different fabric options allow each table cover to be more flexible and adaptable to your specific needs. Here is how to decide between table cover fabrics.

Why Does Table Cover Fabric Matter?

The fabric you choose for your table cover will impact its appearance and the way it fits on the table. Different table cover fabrics differ resistance to wrinkling in storage.. Both of these can make your setup time longer or shorter, depending on the cover you choose.

In addition, certain fabrics display printing more clearly and hold up better under multiple uses. Some fabrics have a high level of stretch, so you can pull them tight across the table, while others are designed to drape the table for an entirely different look. Finally, some fabrics are flame retardant under the NPFA 701 standard, which can be important depending on the requirements of the particular venue you are using.

As you research your table cover fabric options, make sure you consider the look you want and the way you will use your tablecloths. Make a list of the features that are most important to you, whether that be easy folding, fire retardant, or a fitted or draped look. Use that list to narrow down your options as you select a tablecloth or your next event.
