LINEN QUALITY GRADING

LINENS are delivered initially pressed at our facility and placed in a linen bag, linen container or linen cart depending upon the application. Grade A and custom linens may be delivered in the manufacturer's packaging if new. Linens are graded from a scale of A to C. The standard grade is B or AB, with A being used for very high end events, B for typical parties when complete perfection does not matter or C for simple covering when linen quality is not a large concern. Costs decrease up to 10% moving from grade BA to B or C and increase 10% moving from AB to A.

LINENS are graded by the side that shows when in use (also called the "PRESENTATION" side). A lower grade linen can be converted into a higher grade by the addition of an overlay, provided the presentation is entirely the grade specified. Colored overlays create a very unique and beautiful presentation when added to a white or black tablecloth. Dark linens retain their quality longer and high imperfections well, so lower grades may not be available and lower grade linens are available on a limited basis. Grade A may required our ordering new inventory, however, this is not a problem if advance booking is done.

UNLESS SELECT SERVICE OR GRADE A IS ORDERED, ONSITE STEAMING OR IRONING MAY BE REQUIRED.  THIS IS HANDLED BY THE INSTALLATION CREW BEFORE THE SCHEDULED TURNOVER TIME OF YOUR EQUIPMENT (you are the installation crew for a do-it yourself event).

A

"A" grade linens are top of the line quality which is very close to new. They are clean and free of spots, stains or holes. Lower grade linens can be converted into grade "A" by the addition of a grade "A" overlay when the presentation is entirely grade "A". 

AB

"BA" grade linens are near perfect, wedding quality on at least one side. Lower grade linens can be converted into grade "AB" by the addition of a grade "AB" overlay, provided no imperfection shows in the presentation.

B

"B" grade linens are average grade, party quality linens that are clean but may contain a few light spots on the presentation side. Most rental linens are grade "B" or "AB".

C

"C" grade linens are clean but may have a few stains or marks from previous use that show on the presentation side but are coverable by the user. They are used most often for trade shows, displays and applications where covering rental grade tables are the primary consideration. Grade "C" linens may not be available.
