Default UB Ribbon.

My sister and I are going to order some UB ribbon but I have never ordered from them before. Just wondering if anyone can tell me what their ribbon is like? I usually use offray. Also can anyone tell me how much shipping usually runs we are planning on doing a $50.00 order. I know that shipping goes by weight but can you tell me how much shipping usually runs for your orders. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

UB ribbon is thicker than Offray. It's my preferred ribbon. They ship by UPS - I think 15% of order total is a good estimate.

You cannot beat UB RIBBON!!! I love it!! And for the price, you would be crazy not to order from them!! I love UB..wish they had more colors, but..hairbowcenter.com has good quality ribbon, and great prices as well. They are higher than UB, but, you can order online, and you usually get your order within 2 days. I love em both!!

I have every color in 1/4, 3/8, and 7/8. I love it.

IMO it is much thinner than Schiff or Offray. I starch and bake my boutiques to get them to hold their shape. Pros: It is easier to stitch through and the 3/8 is slightly wider and covers alligator clip well. It seems wider than the Schiff/Offray 3/8, and for less than .03/yard for the 3/8??? You just can't beat it. One downside with UB ribbon is the fact that the color may bleed if two different colored ribbon are touching while baking, especially red.

I'm also a huge fan of their satin edged organza.

Shelley, I have that problem with my ribbon bleeding when baked IF the temp is too high! In any brand of ribbon.


Alison, I will probably be doing a group buy on the forum next week sometime, so you will be able to order then, in increments of 10 yards. I will post all of the details later on though!! THANKS!!
