Great Ways to Use a Stretch Table Cap
by Olivia Rose on May 30, 2013
A stretch table cap, or spandex table topper, is a stretchy fabric cover that provides a terrific way to spice up your standard table covering. They are not only attractive but cost effective and functional.
Spandex table covers offer a unique, smooth, wrinkle-free look, ideal for events, hospitality, and trade shows. They are securely held down under each table leg – the tablecloth won’t blow off, so it’s perfect for outdoor events.
Most importantly, your spandex table cap has multiple uses:
1. By placing your stretch cap on your solid color table cover, you can give your table and logo a two-toned look.
2. Since your stretch cap is made out of flexible spandex, you can protect your table top from the everyday wear and tear it faces from traveling between trade shows and carrying your product.
3. Multiple washes can also reduce the quality of your printed table cover. Reduce the number of washes on your printed table cover and extend its use with a table cap.
4. Create a new kind of display. Add a light under your cover to turn your table into a unique, lit display.
Of course, spandex is not a fabric most people deal with on a daily basis. Here are some ways to properly wash your stretch table cap:
How Do I Wash These or Other Types of Spandex?
Machine Wash: 160°F. Use synthetic detergents.
Tumble Dry: 120°F. Remove immediately.
Ironing: If above instructions are followed, no ironing is required. If necessary, light touch up with hand iron at 250°F. Do not mangle.
100% Polyester – Excessive heat, loading and leaving too long in extractor or dryer will detract from permanent press characteristics of all polyester fabrics.
