1. Can I have a sample of your ribbon?
Absolutely! Please fill out a sample request form to receive free samples.

2. What is the difference between the ribbon styles?
Ribbon styles vary in material, shine, and texture. To compare ribbon styles, shop By Style and filter your selection by texture, shine, or wrinkle resistance. If you have additional questions about which ribbon is right for you, please contact our Customer Care team at 1-888-807-6020.

3. Which ribbon works best to wrap gift boxes?
All ribbon styles will work well for gift wrapping, so the best style choice depends on what type of "look" and what kind of bow you are interested in using on your gift box. Shop By Occasion to see our ribbon recommendations for specific occasions. For information on bow-making, please refer to the "Which ribbon makes the best bow?" FAQ. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at 1-888-807-6020.

4. Which ribbon makes the best bow?
Satin acetate ribbon is stiffer than the other ribbons, so if you want a larger multi-looped bow, satin acetate is great. Double face satin ribbon is great for single loop bows and grosgrain ribbon is terrific when you want a knotted bow. Wired edge ribbon has wired edges so your bow will hold shape when tied. For more specific ribbon information, contact our Customer Care team at 1-888-807-6020.

5. Is the ribbon waterproof?
No, this ribbon is not designed for contact with moisture.

6. Will the ribbon fade?
Our ribbon is not intended for extended use in outdoor elements and may fade over time. Also, some of the inks printed on our ribbons will fade or rub off if handled repeatedly.

7. How much ribbon is on a roll?
Each roll of ribbon contains 25, 50, or 100 yards.

8. How much space is between each imprint on a roll of printed ribbon?
Most of our printed ribbon has a 1" repeat. Please call one of our Customer Care Representatives at 1-888-807-6020 if you have specific repeat requirements.

9. Do you offer any other types of ribbon that are not on your site?
We can provide different colors, styles, widths, etc. Please call a Customer Care Representative at 1-888-807-6020 or send us an email at and let us know what you are looking for.

10. Can I reuse and retie my ribbon for multiple occasions?
Custom printed ribbon is designed for one-time use only. Retying the ribbon over and over will result in the custom imprint potentially cracking and breaking down.
