Thanks
Oh yeah i prefer my ribbbon to be stiffer.......and has anyone heard or ourchased from ribbon smart?
I have purchased ribbon from RABOM (20% off thru today), wholesaleribboncarnival.com (super fast shipping), and also teapartyribbons.com (100 yds 3" about $57). Either way, all are comparable. Shipping is usually about $10. If you can get free ship through Amazon, it may be beneficial to go that route.

Most ribbon you purchase from any of these sites will be Schiff or Offray. I don't think it really matters which one. They're both about the same.

I cut my ribbon length to 30" for most bows I make unless for a younger team. Younger girls (8 and under), I cut my ribbon at 28".

Good luck and congrats on the order!
