You should begin by selecting a quantity and zip code, followed by a production time and shipping method. Choose your desired product color and imprint color before selecting from our gallery of custom-designed artwork, or just upload your own artwork file when prompted. We prefer to work with EPS, AI and PDF vector formats, although JPG and PNG files may be sufficient. The highest resolution files work best.

If you have difficulty uploading your artwork, you may email your artwork.

You also may describe your design in the “Special Artwork Instruction” box and our graphic artists can help you create it.
Yes. Just specify the changes you would like to make for your table cover design in the “Add Special Request” section on the cart page when you go to checkout.
We highly recommend you send a vector-based file in EPS, AI or PDF format. If you have a raster-based image such as PSD, PNG or JPG, please send it in the actual size it will be imprinted on your table cover at 150 dots per inch.

If your art file resolution is too low to convert, it may need to be redrawn and you could incur additional charges if the design is complex. Converting or redrawing artwork also may involve additional production time by our staff. Totally Promotional can typeset text and create simple artwork for free.
You may upload your own design or art to us in the "Upload Artwork/Additional Information" section on the product details page of our order form, or just email us your artwork. We can accept EPS, AI, PDF, JPG and PNG file formats. We suggest you send the highest resolution file you have available.
We suggest you use Hightail or Dropbox programs for files larger than 100 megabytes. Proofing time may take longer; you may be asked to compress the files so they are more manageable.
We offer about 250 fonts to choose from in our Font Selection section. If you wish to use your own font, it must be converted to outlines (graphics) in programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw before sent to us. We have other fonts not listed in our library; you may submit a font name and we can search for it or find something that closely matches.

We do not knowingly reproduce copyrighted material and will not accept liability for such infringement when reproducing orders. You are solely responsible for ensuring the artwork you submit does not infringe on property rights by obtaining proper permission for the reproduction of logos, trademarks and copyrighted material.

We will consider but cannot guarantee the use of submitted artwork that is similar to the copyrighted or trademarked design you desire. Our graphic artists can help you create a design to your satisfaction.
Yes! Our expert designers can assist you with the layout of any design you wish to place on each product.
The Pantone Matching System is a standardized color reproduction system, which more accurately provides shades for specific colors. Every PMS Color is represented by a number and is more precise for logos and branding.

The CMYK Value is a four-color process that layers cyan, magenta, yellow and black to form your color. CMYK works best for multiple-colored imprints such as photographs.
The templates on our product details page will show you the imprint and bleed areas for each product at the size chosen.
Yes. A FREE proof will be sent to you via email. After you receive the proof, please contact your graphic artist to approve your design or have changes made to your satisfaction.
We typically keep customer artwork/designs on file for about two years.
Yes, but please note that our product prices include one artwork/imprint per order. Each design you select or submit to us will be considered a separate order, which can reduce the price break we offer on larger quantities. This policy does not apply to second-side imprints on products such as drinkware and can coolers.
We suggest you order the 6-foot Throw Style table cover. This is a versatile, flat cloth that will hang to the floor on all four sides of a 6-foot table. It also will reach the floor in the front and back when draped across an 8-foot table, leaving a 12-inch shortage on each end.

Each table cover and table runner is made of 100% premium polyester for a sleek, professional look.
Our table covers are made of polyester, which is a wrinkle-resistant fabric, but is not wrinkle-free. We recommend table covers be rolled up, not folded, when stored to achieve the least amount of wrinkles. Each table cover can easily be steamed or ironed on low heat to eliminate wrinkles. Read our blog to learn how to fold your table cover to reduce wrinkles.
Our table covers are not certified flame retardant.
Some of our form-fitted table covers have zippers on the back that allow easy access to items stored under the table. See the product details page for each item.
Our table covers can be machine washed separately in cold water on the gentle cycle. If you desire to use bleach, use non-chlorine bleach. They can be placed in the dryer; tumble dry on low. Do not dry clean as the process may remove the ink. You also can iron them, if necessary, on low heat or use steam to eliminate wrinkles. To learn how to properly fold your table cover to reduce wrinkles, please read our blog.
Each table cover and table runner you order comes with a drawstring bag to carry your product to all your special events.
Both are made of our sturdy polyester material but our premium liquid repellent table covers are engineered to repel all liquids from absorbing into the fabric. If liquid is spilled onto a liquid repellant table cover, it will gather in small pools instead of soaking into the cloth. Cleanup is a breeze!
The liquid repellent table cover may have a slight stiffer feel compared to our standard table cover material.
The three-sided table covers have a small overhang of about 4 inches on the back, and the back corners are sewn together to prevent it from slipping off the table. Please click the image online for a 360-degree view. Because this table cover is considered “semi-fitted,” a 6-foot style will not fit an 8-foot table and vice versa.
Totally Promotional offers 66 standard colors for table covers. We suggest you send us the Pantone Matching System Color number you desire. However, due to many factors in the process for dye sublimation imprinting, as well as updates to our products, we cannot guarantee the color of your table cover will exactly match a previous order you placed with us. We highly recommend you request custom sample swatches to get the closest possible match.
The colors on your computer screen will not be the exact Pantone Matching System Color because all printers and monitors are calibrated differently.
Dye sublimation is the printing process we use for all of our table covers and table runners. It dyes the imprint into the material, rather than imprinting in a layer on the surface. The final result is a smooth product finish with no raised feel!
Yes, you can get a 1-color imprint on your table runner, however, it will be the same cost as a Vivid Color table runner, which uses multiple colors for your design or logo. All of our table covers and runners are created with our dye-sublimation process, regardless of the number of imprint colors being used.
