The Marketing Committee is pleased to announce the purchase of a new tablecloth that can be used for ZSR events and outreach. Renate has worked with the Bookstore to borrow their tablecloth for various events and it was decided that purchasing a tablecloth of our own would be a good investment. Linda Early did some online research for companies that sold tablecloths with brands or logos on them, and received excellent customer service from Chris Rupert and branders.com. They gave Linda several mock-ups and quotes with various sizes of both the tablecloth and the logo. Rather than the plasticized iron-on “WF” of the Bookstore tablecloth, which was difficult to clean and was subject to peeling off, our logo was affixed using a “Full Bleed (Dye Sublimation)” which (I think!) means that the logo was dyed into the cloth, so the logo will not peel or tear off and the tablecloth is washable. The final product is an eight-foot oval tablecloth with the cupola and “Z. Smith Reynolds Library, Wake Forest University” on one side. Our tablecloth will live at Circulation and anyone interesting in using it for an event will need to contact Renate. Thanks to Linda and Renate for their work on this project!
