Event Supplies recently launched a new product range of Crease Free Paper Tablecovers, these ‘Flatpack’ paper tablecovers are pre cut 90cm x 90cm and offer a clean look paper table cloth ideally suited to restaurants and cafes where a crease free table setting is required.
The only solution for restaurants and cafes when seeking a crease free paper tablecover before the introduction of these products was a Banquet Roll which could be cut to size to suit the length of the tables.
The flatpacked tablecovers are cased x 250 table cloths to a box in order that when they are folded the once there are no creases on the tablecovers (Creases or folds are avoided the same way a telephone book will not get a crease if you curl a large number of the pages)
Historically sales of the flatpack tablecovers have been mainly in the north of the UK, this we believe this is because space is of more of a premium in London. A box of Folded Tablecovers is a 30cm cube box which is easily stored, the flatpack tablecovers are in a 30cm/10cm/90cm rectangular box, which is more unwieldy and not really suitable for storing on shelves.
Both these products are used to protect table linens from stains and are increasingly used at Childrens parties as they allow for spillages.
The ‘Silk’ tablecloths are made of tissue Napkin material which is laminated with plastic on one side making the product water resistant. As the Silk product is manufactured from tissue material the thin plastic laminate does not impair the products drapeability (I may have just invented a new word there…)
Plastic Table Cloths are inherently waterproof and are made as thinly as possible to enable them to drape over the sides of a table. The plastic table cloths are tear resistant and difficult to damage however creases and folds in the product are more apparent than the silk product.
The creases on the Silk tablecovers once layed on a table are much less apparent and offer a more sophisticated dining experience.
We are often asked why we stock both types of product and would offer the explanation that the Silk tablecovers are more suited for use with adults and in restaurants and that plastic tablecloths suit kids parties better (the plastic tablecloths are a much cheaper option too)
Should you find yourself with an excess of Plastic Non-Vending Cups, Depo Jeans in Perm City, Russia have found a novel was of gaining free advertising by putting their plastic cups into chain link fences to create Graffiti advertisements for their business.
I have not heard any word if ‘Depo Jeans’ have benefited from this campaign as yet or been issued with a community service order to remove litter….
We can of course supply these or any other colours in a Wipeable Banquet Roll by special order. Should you wish to order a Silk banquet roll please telephone 0844 4995456 to speak to a member of our team.
We are please to announce that we have expended our range of Folded Paper Table Covers even further! We have sourced a limited range (White, Red, Dark Green and Dark Blue) of rectangular folded paper table covers.
These products are good quality heavy steam embossed and come supplied in cash and carry dispenser packs like the rest of our range of Folded Paper Table Covers. The only difference to the product is the way the Table Cover machine folds the paper into the cash and carry packs, our normal fold is square, these are rectangular.
A significant saving can be made on the limited number of colours as these products are manufactured in the UK (all our other banquet paper is sourced from Europe and the exchange rate is not doing any of us any favours at the moment!)
Welcome to the all new Event Supplies blog! Our old blog ‘Catering Supplies News, Info & Other’ which was hosted on blog.co.uk has now been closed. We will be discussing the same topics here, new product information, changes to the catering disposables market and anything we find vaguely interesting or related to our industry.
The old blog had started to gain a significant readership and we thought best to create our own proper blog within the Event Supplies main website.
In addition – it’s worth checking out the latest news and updates over on Inn Supplies (our sister site). You can find this blog on their site at: http://innsupplies.com/blog. This contains more consumer-orientated information and special promotions, it’s also worth signing up to the newsletter to stay abreast of any new product developments!
