Default How to print on grosgrain ribbon

So I am new to this forum and this question might have already been asked and answered once, but I haven't done a quick search on this topic. I have heard that you can print your own designs on grosgrain ribbon. How and can you help on what sizes you recommend. Like I mentioned .... first time doing this so I am just confused... any help will be appreciated.

There is a machine that you can buy to print your own ribbon (like the regular printed stuff you buy), but it's horrendously expensive There are some girls out there that print onto transfer paper and iron that onto ribbon too. It seems to me to be a fine art and LOTS of practice to get good at it. I've bought some stuff that was pretty crappy... like totally not usable crappy! You may want to try print your own ribbon. hth

Yes that is absolutely right. You can get your ribbon printed the way you want. It is very simple and cost-effective process.

I've done it the hard way... I used a 7/8 and 3/8 template and printed it on iron on paper and ironed it on each piece!!! It was hell but it came out great!!
