One of the most frequently asked questions regarding our range of paper table covers concerns the availability of round shaped disposable covers. We only stock square proportioned items in either 90x90cm or 120x120cm, suitable for most common table arrangements and requirements.
Although we have investigated the possibility of stocking round shaped items to suit either 5 or 6ft tables, these have always proved prohibitively expensive due to a more complex (semi-automated) manufacturing process. This is one of the main reasons why you’ll rarely spot and round paper table cloths available online – the required sale price would price the item out of the market.
In addition to the cost argument, there is also a considerable amount of wastage involved in producing a round disposable cloth. As each item is cut from a much larger master roll there is a significant amount of material left over – this contributes to the high cost price as a large proportion of the raw material is discarded.
For customers seeking to cover the larger 5 or 6ft round tables, it’s possible to use one of our popular banquet rolls. For a 5ft round table you simply need to lay this in a cross formation across the table and trim to size. For 6ft tables this is slightly more difficult as you need 3 lengths to completely cover the table; however it’s perfectly possible to cover 100% of the area in this manner. Customers will often use a 90x90cm table cloth in the centre as an accent with white banquet paper used as a base.
