Printed Ribbon UK is a J. Lawther & S Lawther Partnership.

As our name suggests, we print ribbon!  We are an established business based in Ibstock, Leicestershire, UK. All the Printed Ribbon UK team are specialists in printing high quality satin bespoke printed ribbons for companies, charities, organisations, and individuals. We can print anything from single colour ribbon printing to two colour and full colour printed ribbon. Our wider ribbon is ideal for printing sashes and we supply printed sashes sewn and ready to wear.
We are just mad about personalising ribbon! We focus on providing customer service second to none and to meeting your printed ribbon needs.

In house ribbon printing facilities

We print in house in the UK so there are no huge lead times compared with sourcing printed ribbon from further afield.
Businesses both large and small love our beautiful double faced satin woven printed ribbons.  Using our specialised machinery we can print company logos and slogans onto ribbons to promote company brands. The ribbon is an ideal addition to put on promotional giveaways.  We can also print onto grosgrain ribbon with our full colour printing process.
We also specialise in printing wedding ribbon and engagement ribbon.  Our wedding and engagement clients appreciate that we can print the happy couple’s names and wedding date or engagement date to personalise plain ribbon to celebrate the happy occasion. Personalised ribbon is a lovely keepsake to treasure. We can also print motifs to tie in with particular wedding themes or print intertwined hearts, bells etc.
