Some people do both. You have to be careful with the prints and dots if you bake like they said earlier. Prints and dots are put on the ribbon by a heat transfer process and if the temp is too hot it bleeds and it will in your oven too. I wet any ribbon that I bake especially my korker ribbon and I bake at lower temps so mine don't bleed usually. I try to avoid ribbon that is completely printed including the base color, i.e. white on the back, because IMO it bleeds badly.
