Hi, Emily here with MVP Visuals – your go to for custom branded displays. Custom tablecloths are event essentials for any display, but they’re anything but basic. We understand that choosing the right custom printed cover can be difficult. So, here are some important points to consider that can help you shop smarter.

The classic look is often a front-panel print cover. This is a great way to display your logo in one large graphic, and it’s available in a couple of printing options. The first is thermal Heat Set Print, which is the most economical print option.  Second is screen printing. It’s is a cost-effective choice when you have 13 or more of the same covers needed with basic logos and minimal colors. And last, dye sublimation print. This is perfect for multicolored logos or images, since it offers unlimited colors with photo quality detail. If you’re exhibiting at an event where visitors will see more than the front of the table, consider a dye sublimation all-over print. This cover can print your artwork on all sides meaning maximum print areas to display your branding.  

The two standard fabric options are polyester and spandex. Polyester, as mentioned earlier, has a number of print options available and you can choose between throw and fitted styles. Throw style has rounded corners and fitted style has inverted pleats on the corners. If you’d like to try something modern and sleek for your next show, spandex is a stylish but still sophisticated and professional option. They’re made to fit both cocktail and standard trade show tables. Custom stretch covers go snugly over the table top and down the legs of your table to create a smooth, wrinkle-free silhouette. As far as styling stretch covers, they’re a dye sublimation all over print, so you have endless design and color options.

You might be thinking, “What special features could a table cloth really have?” Consider different material and fit options. With polyester covers, you can choose recycled, liquid repellent, flame retardant and outdoor-use material options. Custom spandex table covers come in standard spandex, economy stretch, and flame retardant fabrics. Many custom stretch tablecloths come with zippers, or open back panels for easy under-table access and storage. Also, if you are unsure of what cover size you will need for different events - go for a convertible table cover, which adjusts to fit an 6 foot or 8 foot standard table in seconds. Finally, think about how your whole display will come together, and what table cover will best fit with that theme. For more information or to request a quote, visit us at
