Hi Welcome to my first Blog! Where to start!
I am often asked ‘what is personalised ribbon and why would I need it’
so this seems a good place!
Quite simply you can now add any message, greeting, lettering, name, business description, simple logos and clip art directly onto ribbons of various lengths and widths.
Pre 2002 this was impossible unless you were able to order in bulk as the minimum order was 1000+ metres! This has all changed with the introduction of desktop ribbon printers which were introduced into this country from Belgium where they are used to print a condolence message onto ribbon solely for the funeral industry, the ribbon is then attached to floral tributes. Here in England we write on a card, it then rains, the ink runs and the message is illegible, by printing the message directly onto a ribbon this eliminates the problem as the ribbon and foil are water resistant, and the family can also remove the ribbon and save as a lasting memento. I am now starting to get requests from more florists and customers so it might eventually catch on in this country!
I was one of the first businesses in the UK to introduce personalised ribbon printing to the UK market. I immediately saw the appeal for not only a housewife wanting just one metre of ribbon with a personalised theme for their child’s birthday (eliminating the need for icing!), but also small, start-up and established businesses who would be more comfortable with a few metres of ribbon rather than 1000+ metres.
There are literally hundreds of ways to utilise ribbon. The sugar craft industry or housewife who has to make a celebration cake quickly, or someone needs a complicated message putting onto a cake, this can be added onto the ribbon in seconds, with the added bonus of it being a lovely keepsake for the recipient after their special event.
Weddings: use to personalise invitations, cars, cake, bows, favours, floral decoration, post box, add the menu to your napkins, place settings, add to guest books, sashes, gifts etc
Business and Corporate, Events etc. add to gift and packaging boxes, banners, promotional sashes, place settings, menu ribbon, promotional, floral arrangements, employee or visitor gifts etc, here is an example of my client, Sophie Jane Baby Gifts, business and how she has utilised the ribbon
In my next blog I will explain how personalised ribbon can help the individual consumer and how I used it for a family celebration
