A common mistake that many custom table cover owners make is how they fold and store them. Believe it or not, there is a proper way to fold table covers so that they do not become creased and look good for a long time. We have developed an expert method for folding and storing table covers. Following these basic instructions ensures your cover looks great without any fuss the next time you need it.

How to Fold and Store Your Custom Printed Table Cover

  • 1. With your cover on the table grab the front center of the bottom edge (likely where your logo is).
  • 2. Fold up the front panel and lay it flat on the top of the table, so the logo is facing down. Get the ends to align.
  • 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the back panel or backdrop. You now have the table cover folded in thirds, the front and back panels of the cover are now on top of the table.
  • 4. Bend down and pick up the bottom of the fabric from one end.
  • 5. Place the fabric that was hanging over the end of the table flat on the top.
  • 6. Now begin rolling from the end. You should end up with a rolled cover that is approximately 30 inches in width and 3-4 inches in diameter.

The key to this folding method is creating the folds in the cover at the approximate location where the cover naturally transitions from the top of the table to one of the four vertical sides. Add our table cover carry bag for the ultimate solution in storage and protection. The bag’s unique design and construction keep the cover neatly rolled up and prevent it from folding in half. Store your covers in the carry bag lying flat (horizontally) rather than standing on end.

Proper folding, rolling, and storing will increase the longevity of your custom table banner and preserve the sharpness of its design. Caring for your trade show tablecloth will ensure that you will get the most out of your investment. Order a custom table cover carry bag today!
