I get 50 yard spools from Amazon with Amazon Prime it's free 2 day shipping. I think the o e I bought last week was just under $30. I have heard of Ribbon Smart. From my understanding the lady who used to own/make Yella Bows now owns/runs it. I priced a million places for the 3" ribbon and in the end Amazon was best and you can't beat having it in-hand in 2 days I'm sure pricing changes with time but this I speak of is as of last week. Best Wishes

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!

Ann

I cut my ribbon the same length regardless if I am making one or 100 bows. I calculate the cost of my bows based on the standard measurement. There are only two or three manufacturers of 3" ribbon, so buy from whomever is cheapest at the moment, it's all coming from the same mill!
