    What I do is take car wrap cast material and cut the logo out and apply it to the table drape. I go to the fabric store and pick out something soft and flowey like gabardine I tell my clients to wash it by hand, not by machine. I've made three sofar and not one complaint. The 3m material melts right into the material. I figure it's good for three or four shows when they are ready for new infomation on there table drape.

    http://www.creativebanner.com All the way for this kind of thing!
    I have used them in the past for tablecloths and they had good pricing and fast service and a good product.

    i'd say just make a stencil or paintmask and use a roller with fabric ink.

    but if you're hard-set on printing it (complicated logo?) i'd say it never hurts to try a sample!
    I've printed on soundproofing material before and the ink dyed the fabric just fine.... but the material kept head-striking because it was too thick and hairy, so I talked the client into mounting the soundproofing material and just draping a mesh banner over it.

    I've done table clothes and runners using RiteMedia Light Cloth. Colors look great on this stuff. It's a little sensitive to wrinkles so I always give the client a tube to roll it on.

    We have used apparel vinyl on table throws. You can also get Creative Banner to print them for you.
