It's printed on the edge of the material. You might not see it after the cloth is installed on the table, although, I've seen many installers that could put it on where the word Simonis was in the middle of the top of the cushion, but it IS printed on the edge of the cloth.

Is not the printed side an indicator of the orientation for which side goes down. Seems that the WPBA once installed cloth upside down in a stop...fran posted it I believe, and it raised havoc with the speed...sid

Simonis prints it on the top side. Some manufacturers print it on the bottom. I've seen cases where an installer thought the name always went up, and installed another brand upside down! And yes, it does have a very big impact on the speed of the cloth.

Ok I found the simonis name and it's installed up.

The WPBA never installed cloth upside down. It's comments like this that start nasty rumors. It was at the U.S. Open in Virginia back when the men and women played together, and the WPBA had nothing to do with the installation.
