I wouldn't do it! Our company was fined a large fine and our merchandise was pulled by CAPS. Coalition to protect the advancement of sports trademarks.

I wouldn't do it! They even search etsy, ebay and offer for infringements and will have the item pulled. Yes-they did that to us also!

IF you purchase the licensed for resale ribbon, which is MORE expensive you have in essence purchased the license for reselling it.

There are a couple of sites that sell it. One of the yahoo groups I'm on did a group buy a while back. $1.45/yard but I went ahead and got the Ohio State ribbon. It was worth the extra money because the bows were big sellers at my fall shows. I increased the price for each item and because it had the college team instead of just red and grey.

I don't know if NFL teams have licensed to resell items or not but if it's around it won't be cheap.

Just make sure it's Officially licensed ribbon before you post it to sell online!

You should not have had to pay those fines if they were licensed materials.

http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/...LPA/CLPA.shtml

http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/.../NFL/NFL.shtml

http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/...lOfShame.shtml

The first link is the college and the second is NFL.

The third link is the home page where you can find hello kitty, disney, etc. If you buy their licensed materials then you buy the rights to do what you wish with them, including using them for a craft and reselling it!

Buying LICENSED ribbon is okay, but you cannot have someone print custom ribbon for you. That is simply illegal.
Licensed is more money but it is worth it because you can sell items that it is used for. You have to state that you are using licensed ribbon.

I found a website that sells 9ft 5/8in. grosgrain for 5.95 a roll. I did not see anything on the site that said anything about reselling the ribbon, the warning may be there and I may have overlooked it but like I said I didn't see one. http://alumnifashions.com/index.php?...keyword=Ribbon

2 companies out their that sell nfl and ncaa bows. I would have to go through all my stuff to find their names. One companie used to sell the ribbon but no longer can - conflict with the college schools. Another company sells the ribbon and you have to buy a 100 dollars worth....off hand I do not have the name...not much help am I.

If you buy a roll of that it will have the main company that you can buy from. 50 percent off that price. They dont sell the NFL ribbon tho...just ncaa
