There are several purposes for using Game Tablecloths; not only are they used for protection of the table but they are manufactured with a texture that allows a frictionless movement of game pieces or cards. The ease of movement of the game pieces is a very important function of the Game Tablecloth.
The best cover for a Poker Tablecloth is the real Casino Felt. It is soft, heavy and very durable and is used in casinos and pool halls. The Casino Felt does not pill up like a regular felt fabric and is a 20 oz. weight wool. There is not a better fabric for the serious or not-so-serious fun-loving poker players. The best way to make them work is the Fitted Poker Tablecloths, made to fit any size table and to insure they stay completely secure on the table. These Custom Tablecloths are manufactured to insure a tight fit on any size table. They are normally fitted by elasticized edges but can also be made with heavy-duty adjustable cords. We have found the elasticized edges work the best and make it easier for putting on and removing from the tables.
Covers that work really well for other Game Tablecloths, for instance Bridge Tablecloths, Mahjong Tablecloths and other card and tile games is the Suedes. The Ultra Suede is the very best, strongest, and washes up beautifully; but there are other nice micro-fiber suedes and suede-looks that also work very well and are very attractive. The Suede Tablecloths come in many different colors and can be decorated with trims or have initials embroidered on them This is a very popular idea with the Bridge and other card players. Most of the Suedes are completely machine washable and come out of the Dryer beautifully. Some of the characteristics of using Suede for the Game Tablecloths that make it so popular is it’s attractiveness, durability, flexibility and easy care.
Vinyl Tablecloths are also used extensively for some game tables. It, of course, works well because of it’s strength and ability to not wrinkle up or move when playing games.
Vinyl is, however, used mostly for protection of the Game Tablecloths. The protective covers we manufacture and recommend for use over the top of the more expensive Poker Tables and other Game Tables are usually made of Vinyl but sometimes we recommend and provide the heavy-duty cordura nylon fabrics for outdoor Protective Covers. Some of the protective covers we have provided our customers have included Poker Table covers, Ping Pong Table Covers, Foosball Table Covers, and other game table covers as well as Sandbox Covers. Both the Vinyl and the heavy-duty cordura nylon work well and are very protective.
The protective covers are also used for Outdoor Patio Furniture covers, Air conditioner Covers, motorcycle covers, Grill Covers, TV Covers etc. We have manufactured these protective covers for many customers for many other different and creative uses; for instance: amplifier covers for musicians, speaker covers, DVR covers, outside equipment covers, including exercise equipment, yard equipment and just about anything our customers have requested.
