Default Can you bake printed ribbon?

I'm in the process of my first try at printing my own ribbon (M2MG Pop star Academy!)

I like to starch and bake my bows.

Silly question:
Can you starch and bake "print your own ribbon?"

I'm pretty new at this, but I can say that my experience with baking printed ribbon hasn't gone so well.

Baking solids went great, except for a little problem with the stronger colors bleeding on others, so as suggested here, I just put waxed paper or aluminum foil between those that bleed and the others. Worked fine.

My printed ribbon consists of the ribbon you can buy from the various shops online that has the pretty designs on it. When I have baked it, the design bleeds nearly every time..just enough that it makes the design appear slightly smeared or blurry. I have also had the color transfer onto the other layers of the bow, and on one or two designs, the overall color of the ribbon faded.

This is just my experience, however. Others may have had great results. I just haven't, so now I just spray with sta-flo and call it quits. I have also sprayed lightly and ironed the ribbon prior to folding it when I felt it was just too floppy.

Yes, you can bake printed ribbon. I do it all the time and I do make lots and lots of kroker and bows.


Good Luck!

I've tried 275, 250 and 200 - I've had it happen on 3 different designs. I really wanted to bake them! So if anyone has any advice, I would welcome it!

Sounds like everyone else hasn't had the trouble I did...waaahhhhh!

What about the ribbons that almost seem to be painted on or something? I worry that stuff will melt...I have never tried baking ribbon at all yet so I am anxious to try it out but I worry what my outcome will be lol.

I've had good luck with the thinner printed images. I mean the almost drawled on images versus the thicker almost stamped on images. Does that make since? The thinner images don't bleed or fade where as the thicker ones either fade into a totally different color or bleed. HTH
