Frequently Asked Questions

What ribbon do you use?

We use high quality double faced satin ribbon for all of the printing. Sometimes we have to use single faced ribbon but we will always notify you in advance.

How quickly can I get my order?

We print in house and the usual turnaround time is between 1 and 3 working days. For plain ribbon we send same day if ordered before 3pm. Large orders may require more picking time and a courier so check with us on Tel: +44 (0)1530 229234

Can you print in white?

Printing onto ribbon is different to other print processes. We can print white only in Vinyl Print which is subject to artwork approval.

Do you print on grosgrain ribbon?

We can print on grosgrain ribbon only using our permanent, full colour process. Even when the artwork is one colour we have to mix it using that same ink as for the full colour print.

Can you print edge to edge?

We usually print a discrete logo / artwork / message in the middle of the ribbon due to the woven edges on top and bottom.

Can you match print colour to Pantone?

Using full colour CMYK printing process we can print as close as possible to your Pantone colour.

Can you match ribbon colour to Pantone?

Matching ribbon colour to Pantone requires a special order of minimum 3000 meters and a 12 weeks lead time.

Can you print patterns and continuous artwork?

Depending on the artwork and the print process there may be a small overlap or gap between prints.
