Are your products "table ready"?

Our linens do not come "table ready". They are individually packaged in plastic bags so they are ready for immediate shipment. Creases and wrinkles may occur from packaging. Allow yourself a day or two to prepare the linen before it is to be used. (Washing, ironing, etc...)

 

Instructions on how to care for each fabric type

  • Use a steamer or iron on low heat.
  • Put it in the dryer with a damp towel, (low heat) the moisture will create a steam effect.

GENERAL LINEN CARE TIPS

  • Linens look best when pressed and starched before use.
  • Ironing temperature should not exceed 320 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Wrinkle & stain resistant does not mean wrinkle or stain proof.
  • We recommend that customers do not dry our tablecloths with high powered laundromat or industrial dryers.
  • Drying temperatures exceeding 180 degrees fahrenheit may damage fabric.
  • ­Dry a maximum of 1­2 tablecloths in a single dryer.
  • Avoid storing linen in a cedar chest or plastic bag. This may cause yellowing or discoloration. Keep rolled up in a cardboard tube, or cotton pillowcase, store in a cool and dry location.

 

Following these instructions will ensure your linens last a long time, look fresh and

new, and always ready for a party.
