Default Paint on hair bows

Any idea what type of paint to paint letters on hair bows? I have tried several fabric paints and nothing seems to stick. I remember back in the 80's everything was painted with names with a certain type of paint. IDEAS- thanks so much!

I use Scribbles fabric paint when I make my Hello Kitties.
I will say, though, that it bleeds terribly on some brands of ribbon. I have to buy Offray for anything that I am going to paint on. I haven't had any issues with the paint coming off.

I've always just used the normal puff paint, I don't know the brand, but it's always worked for me.

I always used the little craft bottles of acrylic paint. I used a fine line brush to paint most of the designs and never had any trouble with the paint sticking to the ribbon. The puffy paint is a type of acrylic paint.

I haven't painted on ribbon, but I've painted on fabric and I use Jacquard Lumiere, Neopaque & Textile Paints. They are awesome! And they are fairly thick. You can heat set some paints, but they also have an additive you can mix in that will make it permanent without having to heat set. (Good for stuff that won't handle heat) Good luck!!
