New Volume Pricing for Event Tablecloths

Volume Discount Event Tablecloths

A lot of our customers buy large quantities of our inventory items in order to service special events such as weddings, corporate meetings, conferences etc. Because of this, we tailored our event chairsfolding table pricing to reflect the need to buy in volume.

Two years ago, we introduced event tablecloths in polyester and spandex fabrics. The tablecloths have been one of our best new products launched and have been sold extensively throughout the country. We’ve also made product adjustments (specifically surrounding spandex tablecloths) based on customer feedback to improve the product’s functionality and make it easier for customers to use.

We’ve been asked over the past two years whether discounts could be offered for buying our event tablecloths in bulk. At the time our answer was unfortunately no. But I’m happy to announce that we’ve now built in volume pricing for all event tablecloths – spun polyester tablecloths, polyester tablecloths, spandex tableclothstable skirting and wedding chair covers.

The greater the volume of these event tablecloths you require, the cheaper the cost per product will become.

How to attach plastic folding table skirting clips

So I had my mind blown yesterday about plastic folding table skirting clips. I assumed that I knew how to attach plastic folding table skirting clips to a table. But you know what they say about assuming…. Turns out I was completely wrong. I would’ve never even thought about there being a right or wrong way to attach skirting clips. However, not only have I been attaching them wrong, but I’ve also been attaching them in a way that can cause them to break! No one wants to have to deal with that.

Because I had my mind blown I thought I wasn’t the only one who may be attaching plastic table skirting clips incorrectly – and thought I’d share the knowledge to stop clip breaking in its tracks. Check it out below. If you already knew this – feel free to take this post as your source of Tuesday entertainment. I feel pretty sheepish right now!

1. Take plastic table skirting clip and ensure the clip is facing with the opening towards the table edge.

2. Place the curled bottom underneath the table and move along until it clips into place

3. Slide top of the clip over the top of the table edge

I had been placing the top of the clip over the top of the table edge and then forcing the curled bottom over.

Pretty much a broken clip waiting to happen. Hope this little insight helps keep table skirting clips around longer for you!

Can you Remove Candle Wax from Spandex Tablecovers without Staining?

Candle wax is something that party rental companies that rent out event tablecloths have to deal with on an ongoing basis. Candles and tea/votive lights are an event staple that adds great ambiance to the event – but can be a huge pain to remove – and can potentially stain. We had a customer let us know our spandex cocktail tablecovers had been stained by candle wax so I thought I would test to see whether I could remove the candle wax from spandex tablecovers without staining. Here are the steps I took below:

Here are the items you will need to remove the candle wax:

  • A–Paper Towel
  • B–Cardboard
  • C–Iron with multiple temperature settings
  • D–WD-40
  • E–Baking Soda
  • F–Dawn
  • G–Toothbrush

Place the cardboard and a piece of paper towel under the stain between the table and the fabric

Heat iron on low-medium setting and then press the iron on top of the paper towel. The wax will reheat and melt into the paper towel.

Here’s what it will look like after the wax has been melted into the paper towel – like you have an oil stain now.

Squirt WD-40 onto the oil stain. If it is a small amount of candle wax, you may prefer to put a little WD-40 into a bowl and use a q-tip to put WD-40 onto the stain.

WD40 on the Stain

Sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda onto the WD-40.

Baking Soda Poured on the Stain

Use the toothbrush to brush the baking soda into the stain. You will notice it clumping as it pulls up the WD-40 into the baking soda. Once it has clumped, discard the used baking soda.

Keep sprinkling on baking soda and brushing it until there are no more clumps.

No More Clumps from Oil and Baking Soda

Put Dawn on the baking soda and use the toothbrush to rub it in. Then let it sit for a bit to pre-treat.

Throw the spandex tablecover with baking soda and dawn into the washing machine with lukewarm water and regular liquid detergent. Tumble dry on low.

Voila! Good as new!

Different types of skirting clips

 17ft Polyester Table Skirt

Skirting clips are a necessary evil for event venues, hotels, golf clubs and party rental customers looking to cover their tables with table skirting. There are a few different kinds of skirting clips on the market today. Knowing which ones your table will need helps to avoid a mistake in ordering and ensure your table gets covered as fast as possible. Check out the different kinds below:

Plastic Table Skirting Clips

Plastic table skirting clips work with plastic folding tables. Generally you will find plastic table skirting clips that fit tables anywhere from 3/8” all the way up to 3” thick tabletop. They snap on the table edge every foot and have Velcro on them to adhere table skirting to. National Event Supply stocks plastic table skirting clips that fit plastic tables between 2” – 2.75” thick.

Wood Table Skirting Clips with Velcro

Wood table skirting clips work with wood folding tables. Generally you will find wood table skirting clips that fit tables anywhere from ¾” to ½” thick tabletop. They snap on the table edge every foot and have Velcro on them to adhere table skirting to. National Event Supply stocks wood table skirting clips with Velcro that fit wood tables with a ¾” thickness.

Wood Table Skirting Clips without Velcro

Wood table skirting clips without Velcro also fit a wood folding table. You generally find wood table skirting clips without Velcro that fit tables anywhere from 3/4” to 1/2” thick tabletop. They are primarily used to secure tablecloths to the tabletop so that wind does not blow the tablecloth off. They snap on the table edge every foot. National Event Supply stocks wood table skirting clips without Velcro that fit wood tables with a ¾” thickness.

New Spun Polyester Colour in Stock

Black Spun Polyester Tablecloth

Last year we introduced square spun polyester tablecloths to our inventory. Spun polyester has a higher thread count then our regular polyester tablecloths – making it thicker and more luxurious. The square spun polyester tablecloths are often used as table overlays so that banquet halls and event venues can use regular (less expensive) polyester linens on the tables with square overlays that are more expensive overtop. Then in the middle of May we announced our new sizes of spun polyester in rounds and rectangles. I’m pleased to announce that we have added black spun polyester to the following sizes and that they are now in stock and available in our Mississauga warehouse:

60” x 102” rectangle spun polyester tablecloth – in white & black (new) – fits a 6ft table with a half drop

60” x 126” rectangle spun polyester tablecloth – in white & black (new) – fits an 8ft table with a half drop

90” round spun polyester tablecloth – in white & black (new) – fits a 30” low cruiser table with a full drop
