If you used 24 inches of it, I think that's a 1 1/2 base ribbon with a 7/8 inch overlay. I don't know if that changes the markings? Sorry I can't help with markings or a gator bite, I don't use any.
I also prefer a "v" cut but it has it's challenges. I've never really seen a straight cut on cheer bows but the cut Lorraine linked too is pretty common and looks nice as well. You can make the angle cut in either direction.
