Due to different display settings on monitors, actual ribbon colours may vary slightly from the product image – we would always encourage to order a sample is an exact match is required.
Care & Use of our Decorative Ribbon
This is a decorative ribbon, and care should be taken to avoid overworking the ribbon and handling the ribbon with damp or sweaty hands to avoid smudging of the print. We also suggest not applying hand creams prior to handling the ribbons. Some print colours are more resilient than others – feel free to call us about the choices for your printed ribbon for advice. Simple prints also offer higher resilience to smudging, but care should be taken on fine text or logos as these offer little adhesive to the ribbon. We also offer a waterproof print option in some colours at an additional cost – these can be found by scrolling down the print colour options. We would always recommend a wash care white print option if asked.
Storage of Ribbons
We suggest ribbons are stored out of direct sunlight at temperatures below 20 degrees. Please avoid storing in humid conditions.

Do you print in white?
Yes we do, our specialist ribbon printing machine can print in nearly every colour of the rainbow, including black, white & metallics.
This is a decorative ribbon, please make sure hands are clean and dry when using the ribbon as some print colour may lift, especially when selecting a white print colour. Hand creams should also be avoided. We do offer a wash care print option in the white, which is more robust – simply choose this from the drop-down options when selecting your print colour.
Can you print on my own ribbon I already have?
Sometimes we can, but we will need to see a sample of at least a metre long so we can test it in our printers. Our ribbons have a specialist construction to create a good quality print so we do prefer to use our own ribbons, we may have to charge a surcharge to use your ribbon.
We replenish our ribbon stock regularly and batches can vary in colour – we strongly suggest you order plenty of ribbon at one time to ensure the same batch is used. We work hard with our suppliers to ensure our batches are consistent but there can be some slight variations. When re-ordering a ribbon, please add your original order number to special instructions and we can pull your print file for the same design.
Can I add my logo to the printed ribbon?
Yes, you can, we just need a good quality image, preferably a Jpeg or png or an illustrator file and our ribbon print team will organise the rest. This can be upload directly when you place the order or you can email it to us with your order number for reference. Make it easy for us by providing your image in black with a white background – although we can cope with most formats.
Can I collect my printed ribbon?
Yes, you can, we are based in Brentwood, Essex, just use our Click & Collect service in checkout. We’ll call you when the ribbon is ready for collection – you can collect up to 7pm Monday to Friday. There may be a charge for collection orders that need to be processed quickly.

Our images of Bows
Most of our products are made to order by hand – we try very hard to create as near as possible to the images shown but from time to time there may be a slight variation. We are also always testing and improving our bow designs so we may choose to change the tail shape or knot size as appropriate – especially as our bows arrive ready to use we have to be very considerate of how they travel. If you are trying to match perhaps a previous bow purchased from us or a client’s specific requirements it’s always best to call us or email over your inspirations and we will see what we cna do.
Can I Return Printed Ribbons or Bows?
Due to the ribbons & bows being made to order we are unable to offer returns on these products.
