For several years we’ve offered award ribbons on our website but in interest of full disclosure, the ordering process was never great. The problem we ran into is most suppliers of award ribbons are small companies that have limited staff and are weak on providing product details. We also found the pricing structure unnecessarily complicated. I know there is a need and a demand for these types of ribbons. So now we are in the process of redoing this entire category on our website and hopefully will make the ordering experience a little easier and less intimidating.
Wearable ribbons, also known as ribbons badges, or lapel ribbons, award ribbons, stack-a-ribbons, flat ribbon badges, and on and on. There are so many names for these ribbons that I’m not entirely sure what to call them. Some common uses for wearable ribbons are in retail stores to promote a product, a special sale, or to promote a company’s competitive edge. For example “Ask us about our 0% 6-month Finance Program”. Wearable ribbons are used for orientations, to make it easier to identify staff members. They are used in graduation ceremonies to distinguish students or professors with special honors. For fund raising events. The list goes on and on.
Another type of wearable ribbon is the award ribbon or the carded ribbon. These ribbons have an eyelet at the top with a string. Also included with each ribbon is a card to enter the details of the event or the winner of the event.
Then there are rosette ribbons, which are typically a pleated ribbon that circles around a printed medallion and has an award ribbon hanging from it. There ribbons are commonly used in dog shows, award shows, counties fairs, etc. Though we have not yet added this item to our website, I am especially intrigued. I think they are very neat looking and very colorful. Below are images of the different types of wearable ribbons.
