Pricing Decrease: Wedding Chair Covers

Chair Covers

Since we started carrying wedding chair covers we’ve been expanding our offering. We started with spandex banquet chair covers and polyester banquet chair covers and have since expanded to spandex folding chair coversruched spandex banquet chair covers and gold metallic chair sashes. Because we’ve had such success with our chair covers we are able to provide you, the customer, with a deeper discount, because we’re ordering more volume of products.

I’m pleased to announce all wedding chair covers have had a pricing decrease implemented on them – saving you some money! We’ve also introduced volume discounted pricing for all event tablecloths and chair covers within the last 6 months.

Pricing has decreased between 10-15% for most of the chair covers.

Step 14: There are two locking pins on either side of the handle that allow you to adjust the space depending on if you’re storing 4ft, ft or 6ft round tables. Using your hand pull down on the locking clip and use your body to push one side of the handle in.

Do the same on the other side – pulling down on the locking pin and using yoiur body to push the handle in.

Your cart is almost complete! The below three photos show the handle position when storing a 4ft round;

And 6ft round tables.

Step 15: The last thing to do is to attach the belt that is used whenever you’re transporting less than a full cart load of tables. This belt can be hooked in one of the many holes on the cart enclosure poles and handle to make sure the tables don’t flow all over in the cart. The belt can also be extended to make a tighter or looser fit.

There you go. All set to transport your round folding tables.

What Colour is the Core of a Resin Chiavari Chair?

Chiavari Chair Core Colors

Resin Chiavari Chairs are becoming more and more prevalent in the special event marketplace. It is easy to know what a wood Chiavari chair or metal Chiavari chair looks like under the paint – as wood and metal are popular household items. What does a resin Chiavari chair look like under the paint?

The answer is more complicated than one might think as suppliers and their customers drive pricing of resin Chiavari chairs down.

As far as we know there is two answers to what colour the core of a resin Chiavari chair is. A resin Chiavari chair can have a white core or a similar colour core as its exterior colour (i.e. a gold Chiavari would have a matte gold core).

White is the cheapest colour as it is the closest colour to the raw resin colour. This tends to mean a cheaper overall resin Chiavari chair price. It can also mean a shorter rental life or shorter usage of the chair – because with rental companies in particular, scratches to the chair would be way more noticeable with a white core then with a similar colour core.

A resin Chiavari with a similar colour core will have a slightly higher cost over a white core chair. It will also mean a longer rental life (and longer rental life equals more revenue per chair).

Difference between Scuba Chair Cover and Spandex Chair Cover

There are a ton of different wedding chair covers available in the marketplace today. Ruched spandex chair covers, spandex chair covers, polyester chair covers, scuba chair covers – the list goes on and on. Because of how many different wedding chair covers exist, understanding the differences between them can be confusing. Here’s the difference between scuba chair covers and spandex chair covers.

Scuba Chair Covers:

  • Thicker fabric
  • Covers chair fabric better
  • Less stretch (less spandex)
  • More expensive
  • Wrinkle resistant
  • Tends to be used in hotels and banquet halls

Spandex Chair Covers:

  • Thinner fabric
  • Allows chair fabric to show in certain instances
  • More stretch
  • Less expensive
  • Wrinkle resistant
  • Tends to be used by party rental companies

Are Cross Back Chairs Stackable?

Cross Back Chairs Stack

The answer is: it depends on the supplier of the chair. There are cross back chairs on the market that are not stackable so potential buyers of these chairs – where stacking is a need or want for them – should double check that the chair they’re buying can stack.

Most suppliers will explicitly say that a chair is or isn’t stackable on their cross back chair product page – however some may have forgotten that detail.

The easiest way to tell if a cross back chair is stackable is by looking at the seat in the back corners. There should be a semi-circular notch out in each corner – where the stacking cross-back chair’s legs would nest.
