Custom Table Cover Options and Their Uses

Updated: Jan 19

Custom table covers are used for many different reasons, allowing you to make use of tables that many not be very attractive or in the best condition. They can also be used for extra advertising space at trade shows and fairs, or to conceal the area under the table, so it can be used to store inventory while hiding the legs of the people seated there.

Linen is the most common fabric used for table coverings. They come in a wide range of colors and are made to fit certain table shapes and sizes. Regarding function, linen table covers all fall into the “draped” category, which is discussed below. Table covers for rectangular and square banquet tables measure 6-8 feet while the covers for round tables are 32-72 inches. Linen table covers cannot be printed on, so they cannot provide you with extra ad space


Draped table covers are the most popular type because they’re so easy to use. They are designed to be laid out on the center of the table top to evenly drape down on all sides with the edges just flowing with the breeze. There is bunching at the corners or at specific intervals.


Fitted table covers are designed to have the sides fall straight down from the top of the table. For rectangular or square shaped tables, seams are sewn to make vertical corners. Round table covers have one straight seam down the middle, creating a cylindrical shape. Fitted table covers work well if your goal is to have extra ad space, because you can print right across the front and it’s very visible. However, fitted covers are more difficult to install.


A couture table cover takes things a bit further than a fitted cover because a stretchy spandex material is used to make the cover form-fitted to the table. This option is the best one for outdoors, especially if you expect windy weather. There are pockets sewn in that wrap around the feet of the table to keep the cover from blowing around. The one downside is that couture covers require a little more effort than the others to install.


We wanted to make a table cover that can be used for more than one-size table, so we created the convertible table cover. This way you can use it for two different sizes of banquet tables. We have covers that fit 4-foot and 6-foot, or 6-foot and 8-foot tables. The convertible cover is made with hook and loop tabs that enable you to draw up the corners in the back of the cover and attach them to the rear of the cover toward the center. These folds prevent the cloth from dragging on the ground, which would make your table look sloppy.


Three-sided table covers lack a full-sized back panel and are designed specifically for banquet tables. All 3-sided table covers are made with a small flap on the back side at the top, so that it remains secure on the table top. The benefit of a 3-sided table cover is that the back side is left open so that you have easy access to the space under the table, and it makes it more comfortable for people seated at the table since they can stretch out their legs.

Printing Options

If you want printing on your table cover, you have three different options for the level of printing: full dye sublimation, front logo on a colored background, or front logo on plain white background. Your choice will depend on the look you’re trying to achieve plus how much money you want to budget for this.

  1. Full-Color Dye Sublimation: This option gives you the most control because you can choose any pattern or image you want. Logos and photos can be printed on all sides of your cover, with whatever you want for the background.

  2. Logo on Colored Background: This is considered the mid-range option that lets you put your logo (only one) on the front panel of the table cover, and you can choose the color you want for the background. Your background color will be the color used for the rest of the table, the top, both sides, and the back.

  3. Logo on White Background: This is the least expensive printing option. Your logo or image will be printed on the front side of a white table cover, which means that the rest of the cover will be white as that is the standard cloth we use for all our table covers.
