| | Re: alligator clips or french?
I usually offer a choice on my bigger bows. I've only ever had one person request an alligator clip on a bow that was over 4 inches. I did that one on a double clip then since it was a BIG bow, it just seemed sturdier.
If you are doing it for craft shows I would mount 4 inch and above on a French clip. I remind people that even these can be clipped on an interchangeable headband too.
