Zippers for upholstery – where to begin? There are so many to choose from, but don’t worry, Zipper Shipper has you, er, “covered.” We are pleased to be the zipper supplier of choice for many fine international hotels and contract furniture manufacturers, as well as smaller workrooms and shops. Whether you are looking for zippers for outdoor cushions, indoor cushions, chairs, sofas, car/automobile upholstery or even airplane upholstery, you can find them at Zipper Shipper. If you sew custom furniture or covers, stock up on continuous zipper chain by the yard and corresponding sliders. Ordering continuous zipper chain allows you to create zippers in any length you choose. This is especially handy for extra-long zippers like what you might find on sofas, futon covers, or car seats. Most upholstery work can get by with zippers in gauges #5 (medium weight) or #3 (lightweight).
Many customers have questions about which zippers to use for outdoor cushions. Most often, a #5 nylon coil zipper or #5 molded plastic zipper will do the trick. For other projects, think about your desired aesthetic while balancing it with the durability you need. We’ve included some of the most commonly used zippers for upholstery on this page, but there are no hard and fast rules. You could also use other zippers found throughout the Zipper Shipper online store on your projects. Let your imagination run wild!
