Coming Soon: Metallic Chair Sashes

Last year we brought in wedding chair covers in both spandex and polyester. This helped banquet halls, golf courses and hotels extend their banquet chair investment while rental companies could have another option to upsell brides on. The chair covers were available in the more neutral colours of white and black.

This year we’re continuing to expand our tablecloth / chair cover inventory. We decided to venture into offering a little more colour. You heard it here first…

I’m pleased to announce that coming at the end of January are Metallic Chair Sashes.

Metallic Chair Sash

Available in gold metallic, these chair sashes give an extra oomph to white or black spandex chair covers. Gold continues to be hot colour in the special event industry and these metallic chair sashes would complement gold rimmed dinnerware or gold flatware perfectly.

Additional details:

  • Machine washable
  • Works on different chair backs regardless of shape
  • 190gsm spandex

Pricing will be formally set once they’re in stock so check back to the blog for the announcement that they’re now in inventory!

How much storage space for stackable chairs is needed

Over the past few weeks we have been getting asked a few prospects and customers on what are the dimensions of our stackable chairs are, how big is a stack of our stackable chairs and how much space will they need to store 100 stackable chairs.

To determine your storage requirements there are a few key measurements that are needed to help with any calculation you will need to do.

1. What are the dimensions of a single (1) stackable blow mold chair?

Our blow mold stacking chair is (approximately) 31.75” tall x 17.5” wide x 24.5” deep.

2. What happens to these dimensions each time you stack a chair?

Each time a chair is stacked on top of another blow mold stacking chair, it adds 4” to the height. So a stack of 6 chairs would reach a height of about 51.75” (formula: 31.75” + (5 chairs x 4” of additional height). The safest amount that we recommend our blow mold stacking chair to stack is 13 chairs – which would be 79.75” high (31.75” + (12 x 4”)). In addition, the depth needs to be considered. A stack of 13 chairs will cause the depth requirements to increase slightly, resulting in a depth of about 29.9”.

3. And finally, what happens when you pack a bunch of chairs into a storage area?

We need to see how much space would fit 100 blow mold stacking chairs, if we put 4 stacks (stacked 2 x 2) of 13 stacking chairs (52 chairs total) takes up a space that was about 3ft wide x 5ft deep x 6.6ft high.

In order to store 100 chairs, we would need 6 stacks of 13 chairs and 2 stacks of 11 chairs. The storage space footprint was 3ft wide x 10ft deep x 6.6ft high.

4. In the event you need to increase/optimize the number of blow mold stacking chairs you store in a confined area, it is possible to place the top blow mold stacking chair upside down.

Doing so would result in the stack of chairs growing by an additional 1 inch in height and 2.75 inches in depth (due to the angle the back of the seat is inclined at).

Crossback Chair Storage Covers Now in Stock

Our chiavari chair storage covers are a really great addition to a rental company’s inventory. Not only do they help protect the chiavari chairs when they’re in transport to a rental location – but they also help protect the chairs from dust and debris when they’re in your warehouse.

Last year when we brought in wood cross back chairs – in 3 colours - we knew we needed to provide a way for our customer’s to protect these event chairs. They are stackable and are transported to different events so they needed to have a protective cover of their own.

I’m pleased to announce we now have in stock at our Mississauga Warehouse Cross back Chair Storage Covers!

These storage covers will help ensure the cross back chairs can be stored in a warehouse without getting dirty or dusty – and help ensure they don’t get scratched up when they are stored or stacked. They’re made of the same fabric as the chiavari chair covers.

5 Signs You Should Invest in Chiavari Chairs

5 Signs to Invest in Chiavari Chairs

Chiavari Chairs are a special event favourite. If you’re in the wedding industry they can be especially important with brides demanding Chiavari chairs more and more for their weddings. But not every party rental company and event venue has the need to buy Chiavari chairs. Some event venues attract primarily corporate meetings and events. Some party rental companies only rent out for tradeshows, corporate clients or their market doesn’t support a Chiavari chair (i.e. their customers don’t have the money for a higher price rental). Whatever the case may be, it doesn’t always pay to buy Chiavari chairs. If you’re wondering whether you should invest in Chiavari chairs, check out this post to learn 5 signs that suggest it might be time to invest in Chiavari chairs.

1. You're losing out on business

If potential customers are coming to your event venue or rental organization and you’re losing business to competitors with Chiavari chairs, it may be time to invest in Chiavari chairs.

2. Brides are specifically asking for them

If your customer base is already asking for Chiavari’s you know that the demand is there - which is half the battle in bringing a new product in.

3. You’ve cross rented or rented Chiavari chairs more than 10 times

If you’re cross-rented or rented Chiavari chairs more than 10 times, you would already have recouped your initial investment in Chiavari chairs – so it makes monetary sense to invest in the chairs to avoid paying more money in rentals.

4. You’re looking to expand your business

Chiavari chairs becomes another piece of inventory you can use to drive more business. If you’re an event venue, having Chiavari chairs is never a bad thing towards increasing your wedding season bookings.

5. You can’t figure out how to increase your average total invoice

Having more products to offer often ends up translating to an increase in average total invoices. Most people are happy to do more business with companies they’re both familiar with and trust. Having Chiavari chairs in your rental inventory means more business not only for customers taking Chiavari chairs but also for customers taking Chiavari chairs plus your other inventory.
