Default Re: help using custom ribbon

I ended up finding a tutorial on here to print directly on the ribbon and it had no effect on the stiffness. it worked great.
I second printing directly onto the ribbon instead of using transfer paper. It doesn't have any effect on the ribbon and the colors are much more vibrant.
