Default Suggestions Please

I was approached by a lady who would like me to do several designs to show a local high school cheer squad. Apparently they had been paying $25 a bow and wanted to go with a new bowmaker this year. I wanted to give her about 4 samples of bows for the girls to choose from.

So, my question would be:

What 4 types of bows would you show?

I need to do them tonight, and any suggestion is much appreciated!

Thank you!

I would take a cheer bow(single tails down with the sequined fabric stuff), a double tails down bow, a korker, and a pony O streamer in the school colors. Wow $25 a BOW!?!? I need to get some cheer bows made LOL

I couldn't believe it either, but I googled the "bowtiques" in my area and they charge 2 to 3 times what I do for the same type of bow! I imagine that is where everyone gets theirs from....

I need to get a really good TUT on cheer bows that can be delivered via PDF electronically. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

i would take the same....it really depends on the cheer coach and what they do. My BFF girls are both high school cheerleaders and they are VERY picky about the uniform of their bows! I mean the girls get demerits of they dont have the right bow! CRAZY! I would just go with different styles and i am sure they will let you know exactly with they are looking for. The girls here were paying $9.00 a bow just for a plain white tails down bow, however it was quite large(lots of ribbon). I am telling you girl that cheer market is where it is at so... GO GET'EM!!! Let us know how it turns out!!

I am too late to comment on the types of bows I would offer. I guess it has to do with geographic location, but our high school cheer squads will not wear korkers. The younger girls normally wear those.

Our girls prefer cheer bows with tails. I would make all straight cheer bows. I would make a one color 2 1/4" cheer bow. Then I would do a color combo with just plain grosgrain. I would do a sequined one and then maybe a polka dot one as well.

Sorry to be late, but just my thoughts.
