Default 6 1/2"-7" Bows with 2 1/4" Ribbon

I am starting to build my inventory started for my next big festival (In March). I folded and wired 29 "Big 7" Bows" today, and am getting ready to glue(ugh) them. But, what kind of clips do y'all think I should put them on?? I have alligator clips, 50mm, 60mm, 70mm French clips. I was thinking of doing the majority of them on the 50mm french clips. What do y'all think?? What sells for you??

I know when we have made the layered bows and big fat korkers they're on the heavier side. An alligator clip doesn't seem to hold as well. So we go to the size french clip that seems to fit most comfortably.

I hear you on the glue part. It is my LEAST favorite. I would rather cut and heat seal korkers all night.
