- About CV & Meet the Designers
Who We Are
We are a wholesale Event Supply and Specialty Linen company founded in 2007 in Austin, Texas. After years of experience in the floral industry, we reimagined our place in the wedding industry by offering special occasion linens for weddings, birthday celebrations, and beyond! It is our mission to provide a superior selection of linens at wholesale pricing, available to both event industry professions and the public, combined with first-rate customer service. In our first decade our attention to detail and commitment to the customer experience has made us the preferred vendor of several event planners, party rental companies, as well as earned us the accolade of several wedding websites and bridal blogs. Not only are we dedicated to our customers and craft, but we’re also dedicated to our community. Among participating in community events we also make monthly donations to both large and small charities, including St. Jude’s, Austin Children’s Shelter, and Capital Food Bank. By shopping with CV Linens you can ensure that you’re associated with a business founded on integrity. Our aim is not only to be the best linen supplier you have worked with, we want to be the best company you have worked with, period.
Each item in our inventory has been thoughtfully and carefully chosen; before committing to a product our Product Managers will always review a sample piece to ensure our quality standards are met. Our buyers painstakingly dissect current and future trends in wedding decor, runway fashion, interior design, and of course, requests from our customers. If some of our items look familiar, it’s because products from CV Linens have been featured throughout the internet, on the pages of magazines, and even on popular TV channels! Our pursuit of excellence means our linen products are held to a higher standard for GSM. A GSM requirement ensures our tablecloths are thicker and boast a higher quality than the offerings of discount party suppliers. Aside from selling luxury linens and decor, we also carry the latest technology in Event Supply products including lighting, industrial draping, and pipe sets. We work hard to be your one-stop supplier for decor, event planning, trade shows, stagecraft, theater design, and more.
How You Fit In
CV Linens offers an assorted selection of products to cater to a diverse client base. Whether you’re an Event Planner placing a large order for crafting the perfect soiree, a bride constructing your dream wedding, or even someone looking to buy a (just one!) new tablecloth – we are at your service! We extensively train to anticipate the different needs of our wide range of customers. Our expert Product Support Specialists are here to assist you in making the best selections to coordinate events, both great and small. We have also made special provisions to ensure our pricing is optimal for every level of customer! Our casual shoppers are still able to enjoy the benefits of wholesale pricing on items without a minimum purchase requirement, while our customers who buy in bulk are eligible for tiered pricing for extra discounts.
At CV Linens we’re here for you throughout the entire process! From our design blog to help guide your vision to tracking your order and ensuring it’s delivered, we pride ourselves on our accessibility. If you have a question about one of our products or policies we are available via live chat, email, or a phone call to assist you. Rest assured you’ll always receive a response from one of our Product Support Specialists, never an automated message! If one of the products in your order has a slight color variation, we will send you a photo of the items side-by-side to get your approval before your order ships. If you’re unable to imagine a certain color or fabric combination, we will be happy to put together a small mock up before you make a final selection. If you’re wanting to see and feel a particular fabric before purchase, we offer various methods of sending swatch samples to you. All of our orders are inspected, counted, and then hand-packed before your order begins its journey to you. If for some reason your items aren’t quite right, we will be happy to make it right for you. We truly look forward to building a lifelong professional relationship with you!
CV Linens is a large company operating with the same human touch of a small business. Every order is a collaboration between Product Specialists, processing, and our warehouse. When you place an order from CV Linens, a team of people are committed to your satisfaction and are with you throughout every step of the process. When you call or chat with one of our Product Support Specialists, your call isn’t going to an offsite call center, it’s coming straight to our offices. You can expect excellent communication within an extremely reasonable turn around time. The dedication of our employees, customers, and fans are second to none! We want to become your go-to vendor for all of your Event Supply needs; we’re a team at CV Linens, and we want you to be a part of our team as well!
