I want to work out of my suitcase and want to decorate it either with a flashy slip cover or maybe a banner. I also will use one or two side tables which I can hang a banner from.
Although the banners don't seem to be a problem as far as design is concerned , I'm trying to visualize what the case would be like, and the best way to go with it. If I use a banner on the case, I wouldn't use them on the tables.
I would appreciate.any suggestions.

I have seen a couple of performers who use antique-looking suitcases with old-timey-looking banners with their moniker. There are several gags that can be done with this arrangement.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

I have often used the display space available on tables for sponsor names (messages)or parts of a routine.

For attachment velcro is wonderful andmaterials from your local sign maker will run from rigid through roll-up. Colors run the gamut from standard B&W to justy abut anything.

My funnest use of these sign systems on tables was when I turned two guillotines (disguised) to add rigic signs from sponsors like "Marie Antoinette Bakeries" and "Robespierre Hari Salon".

Used roll up signs on tables for an Iron Chef routine of dueling Dove Pans -- the signs unrolling on demand to reveal "Challenger" on one -- and Sheff (crossed out then chef mispelled several times and ways ending with ""Chief Cook" on the table I used in the contest.

Some of my equipment was also set up to accept special signs and symbols recognizing my client.

The Cost -- since these were set up for changes as needed, had to be included in the client's price. Costs for standing glitz for multi-use should be carefully planned not only for color and fit -- but for transportation and lasting qualities.

PM me here on the Café for detailsand ieas if you want and I am in the ballpark in answering your original question.

Search YouTube for Mario the Magician, New York City. He has a suitcase table and the banner rolls down remotely.

Want you want on the center suitcase table is your NAME, or STAGE NAME. So they know who they are watching or who to hire for their next event.

So. Much has happened in the last 3 years to change things for me, that it’s all academic now. Still doing magic, but mostly for my own amusement. (That translates to close-up magic. It’s been an interesting journey.
