Ribbon Printing Service: Useful Information

Creating an eye-catching product for customers is vital to sales, so we are delighted to now be able to offer personalised ribbon! We have also increased our range of ribbon itself to better enable customers to pick a colour that matches their own branding.

The ribbon we stock is all high quality double-faced satin ribbon. We feel this type gives the right impression due to its high-quality, luxurious feel. However, we are able to supply other types of ribbon if required, so if you need something different please do not hesitate to get in touch.
 

Unprinted rolls of ribbon are priced at £5.75 each, with a 10% discount if ten rolls of the same colour are purchased.

 


 

The Printing Process:

We print onto our ribbon using a permanent thermal transfer process. The printing process allows us to print a wide range of designs onto the ribbon, including text, company logos and some images. The printing process is permanent, and there is no danger of the personalisation ever peeling or rubbing off.

We are able to print onto ribbon in the following colours, due to the nature of the print process the whole design must be in the same colour and some colours show up better on some ribbon colours than others, feel free to get in touch with any questions.

  • Metallic Gold
  • Metallic Silver
  • Metallic Blue
  • Metallic Red

Due to the time required to set up the printing, on the first order for personalisation there is a £12.50 set-up charge. The personalisation cost per roll of ribbon is £11.75, meaning a total cost per 25 metre roll of £17.50 including ribbon, but excluding any set-up charge required.

The minimum order for printed ribbon is just 25 metres, or 1 roll. There is also no lead time involved as we endeavour to print the same day that artwork is confirmed and dispatch straight away.
 


 

Why Use It?

Gold Ribbon

Personalised ribbon is a very cost-effective way of branding products, with prices working out at 70p or less per metre excluding any set-up charge required.

With hampers, ribbon can be used as a great finishing touch, and depending on budget can be used in a number of ways: Ribbon can be tied around the whole hamper once it is filled to really finish it off, alternatively it can be tied just round the lid with a lovely bow on top, or even a small amount tied round the handle can still add that extra eye-catching touch.

If you would like any advice on how much ribbon you will need, please contact us. As a rough guide, a medium sized lidded hamper will need just under 2 metres of ribbon to tie a cross around the lid, or 1.2 metres to tie a loop around the whole hamper.

If you require a sample of printed ribbon, please feel free to get in touch and we will happily send you one.

If you require very high quantities of ribbon, or have a more specific requirement such as ribbon cut into metre lengths, please contact us and we will be glad to help.
