Tablecloth FAQ’s

How do I work out the size of table cloth that I need?
All of our tablecloths are cut to order, so it’s really important that you measure your table correctly allowing for the required overhang at the edges. Please refer to our measuring calculator, you will find this at the bottom of the product page.

How will my table cloth be delivered?
As standard it will be sent folded unless specified otherwise at check-out. Any table cloth chosen to be sent folded may be creased on arrival however these creases will drop out in a short time. To avoid your table cloth arriving creased, select for it to be sent on a roll at checkout – Remember it costs a little extra.
Our fabric and paper table cloths will arrive folded in pre-packed packaging. Banquet rolls will remain on a roll but will incur a slightly higher postage cost due to the length.

What is Oilcloth?
Is a close-woven cottonor linen cloth with a coating of boiled plastic to make it wipeable.

What is Vinyl?
Vinyl is a synthetic man-made material. It is a type of plastic that is made from ethylene.

How do I dispose of my Vinyl or Oilcloth at its end of life?
We are currently developing a recycle program for our products, in which you send us your used table cloth and we send them off to be recycled, please email us for more information.

How do I care for my tablecloth?
Please remember to wipe clean after each meal. Do not allow foodstuffs and beverages to stand for an extended time as this can permanently damage the coating. Please be extra careful with wine, paprika, turmeric and tomato-based sauces. The acidic products can permanently stain. The coating cannot withstand pen ink, lipstick, nail varnish or shoe polish. Children’s crayons and colouring pens may also permanently mark the cloth.
Do not place on a wet surface or wet the under cloth. Do not place very hot objects on the cloth.
When cleaning use water or mild detergent such as washing up liquid, do not use abrasive products. Do not machine wash or dry clean.
