Default HELP!!!!! My ribbon bled!

I bought Patriotic RABOM ribbon, Blue with stars and Red with Stars. I made my base bows, starched and baked them. Well,now as I am assemble them, I have just realized that the ribbon bled onto the printed stars, and now the blue has baby blue stars and the red has pink stars!! These bows are for an order due tomorrow, a $300 order, to a new customer!!! I am so freaking out. I have no clue what I am gonna do!!! Please help!!

Default Re: HELP!!!!! My ribbon bled!

the first thing that comes to my mind when reading this is why would you wait till the day before to complete such a big order? i wish i could help, but this an occurrence that has happened before, i too learned the hard way, but the way for me to prevent it was lowering the temp prior to baking--and lessen the time, plus i would also do a test run first on any printed ribbon. the next thing that i guess you should do is to contact your buyer and ask for an extension? explain the situation and hopefully you will be able to order more ribbon, someone else can offer up another trick and you can re-do your bows and make a customer happy.
Good Luck!

well, the reason i have "WAITED" till the day before to complete such a big order is our family was flooded over the weekend in Mingo County West Virginia, so we have been out of town helping them work on their homes. Otherwise, the order would have already been finished and delivered. I made the base of the bows a week ago, but didnt notice until I was in very bright light that it had happened. It seems like since this order was placed everything under the sun has went wrong. I am always very punctual on having my orders ready a head of time!!!!
