Satin Ribbons

Do we create custom satin ribbons?

Absolutely, and we’ve been creating unique ribbons for almost as long as we’ve been engraving!  In fact, we manufacture over 100,000 ribbons every year for various events throughout Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, London, Hamilton, and Toronto!  Most of the ribbons we do are related to sports (ie. swimming, wresting, track and field), but others are related to school home reading programs, equestrian events, cat shows, dog shows, fairs and festivals.

Be sure to see the “Ribbon Info” below for more details.

Ribbon Information

What size of ribbons do we make?

Our standard size ribbon is 6″ long by 2″ wide, but we can manufacture any length of ribbon between 3″ and 13″.

What’s involved in making custom satin ribbons?

It starts with a simple design layout based on your idea.  Once we have that layout nailed down, we get a magnesium die created for hot stamping the foil onto the ribbon, which creates the end product that you see in our pictures.  There is a one-time cost associated with the magnesium dies, so unless you’re doing larger volumes, we don’t normally ever recommend putting dates on your die so that you don’t have to get a new die made next year.  Obviously we can do that if you’d like, but on smaller runs, sometimes it’s easier (and more cost effective) to switch out ribbon colours instead of getting new dies.

Is there a minimum order for ribbons?

Yes, ribbons are bundled in groups of 100 per package, so the minimum order is 100 ribbons.

What’s the turn around time for having something embroidered?

It usually takes a day or two to nail down artwork, and from there another day or two to get a magnesium die made.  Based on that, we normally tell people that it takes a week or two to create custom ribbons.
