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

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!

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!
