We are the premier specialty linen rental company in Philadelphia and Baltimore. We are happy to provide linens for your special event. We pride ourselves in the selection and quality of our tablecloths.
The linens you have ordered for your event have been placed on hold for you. Your deposit is to hold the style and quantity you have requested and is non-refundable. Any additions to your order will be based upon availability.
All linens are rented on a per event basis. Your linens will be ready for you two days prior to your event and must be returned the Monday after a weekend event or within two days of a weekday event. Linens returned past their due date will be charged an additional rental rate for each additional day.
You are responsible for all loss and damages to the linens. Please count and inspect all linens prior to their return and shake all debris from the tablecloths. Sparklers, candles and sterno are the largest cause of burn marks and damages which result in a replacement charge. Linens should not be placed in plastic bags or packed damp/wet as they will mildew and permanently damage the linens resulting in a replacement charge.
A 6% damage fee has been added to your order to cover incidental damages. This damage waiver does not cover mold/mildew , acts of negligence or missing linens.
The replacement charge is three times the rental charge of the individual item in addition to the rental charge of that item.
Please count and inspect your linens prior to their return and notify us of any loss or damage promptly.
You have signed a credit card form as security for the return of the linens and have agreed that all damages not covered by the damage waiver will be charged to your card. Any damaged linens become your property and must be picked up within one week after your event or they will be discarded.
Gala Cloths appreciates the opportunity to provide linens for your next event. Please carefully read the following rental terms and conditions to insure a pleasant experience.
Our office hours are Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm EST.

We want our linens back but sometimes they do not find their way home.
We want our linens back unharmed but sometimes they had too good of a time at the party.
We apply a non refundable 6% damage fee on each linen order. The fee covers the accidental damage on a linen. This fee does not cover damage that is due to negligence and it does not cover missing linens.
Here are some helpful hints to avoid losing and ruining linens and having to pay for the loss or damage after the party is over.
Protect all linen from dripping candle wax to avoid burns and paraffin stains.
Do Not open boxes with box cutters to avoid slicing the linen.
Shake all food and debris from linens after use before packing in bags or boxes to avoid mold.
Do not roll linens into giant balls – this creates mold in the center.
Do not pack linens in solid black trash bags to avoid having them tossed out with the trash in the other black bags.
Air dry all wet or damp linens before packing to avoid mold.
Do not seal linens in any kind of plastic bags to avoid mold.
