When planning to visit and exhibit at a craft fair, exhibition, trade show or arranging a table for a reception area in a hotel or school, you need to think about purchasing a printed table cloth to complement your products or information.
The most popular table used for exhibitions or trade shows is the humble trestle table. Although serviceable, the trestle table is not the most attractive item of furniture. To improve the look of your display area, a great enhancement is to use a printed table cloth which will cover the length of the table with a drop on all sides. The colour or colours you choose will be your decision, but most people like to use their personal logo or the name of their company or society on the cloth. Ensuring your colours will stand out will help attract the visitor to your display, along with having your logo or the name of your company or society on the front drop of your printed table cloth.
The most popular sizes of table cloths are 1000mm x 2000mm and 1780mm x 2750mm, although printed table cloths can be made to order. The table cloths are generally made from a hardwearing polyester and cotton mix and are hemmed to ensure that the product is of the highest quality. You are able to have the colour of your choice and if your colour is non-standard, you are able to have your own pantone colour. The table cloth is machine washable at a low temperature on a short wash cycle and you are able to iron the cloth on the reverse. Do not dry clean or tumble dry. Striking logos can look stunning on a table cloth with a mix of the right colours.
Often used as accent pieces, having a couple of table runners on top of your printed table cloth can just finish off the look of your table display. Again, these can be made from the same material as the table cloth, polyester and cotton mix, with hemmed edges and are washable at a low temperature and ironed on the reverse. Your logo or company name can be printed onto the runners for that extra panache and can really complement your table display. The most popular size of runner is 1000mm x 2000mm, although these can be bespoke. Most people like to choose the opposite colour to the table cloth for their runners to make them stand out.
Printed table cloths can certainly add a classy touch to your display especially if using rich vibrant colours and attractive designs as well as adding aesthetic value. The visually appealing displays can entice the visitor to your display and you will probably enjoy harmonising your colours to achieve that perfect display.
Take a look at colours and see which ones sit together well without clashing. I’m sure you will be able to choose a great display to show off your products or services to their best advantage.
