Tablecloths and runners allow you to customise your display table, giving a highly professional and polished appearance at book fairs, festivals, signings and other author events. No matter the quality of the table underneath, you are displaying your books, promotional materials, and author brand to best effect.

  • 2m x 1.5m: shorter than the standard 3m, and suits a 1.2m or 1.5m display table with less folding to look neat.

  • 1.5m x 1.5m: a square cloth which suits a round table or a 1.5m table with no cloth down the sides.


Runner Sizes


  • 1m x 2m: the standard runner size allowing a front drop of 98cm x 75cm, and is ideal for placing over a plain tablecloth on a larger display table.

The manufacturer explains that colours may vary from batch to batch, and although they try to keep the samples up to date they cannot always guarantee a colour coming from a different batch.

Cloth weights may vary from batch to batch but are usually range from 195gsm to 230gsm.
