Default Baking Swiss Dot Ribbon

Those of you who bake most of your things....what do you do about swiss dot ribbon and other ribbon that doesn't have the designs dyed in, but printed on top of the ribbon? (You know...some ribbon has the images dyed into the ribbon....some are just printed on top of the ribbon.) Do you bake your swiss dot ribbon that has had the dots printed on top or do you just spray it with stiffener or hairspray?

I bake them and spray with starch before I bake for my korkers. I actually just did some this morning and they turned out great! I am not sure if it is different for a regular bow though...

That is a good question. I baked some the other night (7/8 polka dots) and the polka dots faded some. The ribbon was black with white polka dots. I sprayed them first with starch and wondered what I could do to prevent them from fading.

Same thing I was wondering. I baked some awhile back and they faded weird. But I see korkers and stuff made from swiss dot all the time so I know people do it.

I had that problem with red/white swiss dots that I bought from Hobby Lobby I think. I ordered red/white swiss dots from RABOM and did not have a problem. I think it is the brand and quality. Both had the dots printed on them.

I bought mine from hipgirls. I know their quality is wonderful, but it did fade some. The dots almost like like the black has faded through some. Not sure where I got some burgundy with white polka dots but after baking the dots were PINK!

I think you are supposed to bake at a lower temp. I spray mine with starch and bake at 200 for 20 mins. Might take longer, so check them. If they aren't set, bake them a bit longer.

Hmmmm....maybe a lower temp. I usually bake mine at 250...maybe lowering it to 200 will help.

I wonder is some people just wrap the ribbon around the dowl rod, then spray several times with stiffen stuff. I'm not sure that would be stiff enough to hold it...
