Default Are 5/8" ribbons popular?

Hi, I am new at making bows and have noticed that alot of the bows besides infant bows, are made out of 7/8" and 1.5". Are 5/8" ribbons not very popular?

I also noticed that BBM bow templates do not even offer 5/8". They are all for 7/8" and 1.5".

_______
Thanks for the replies!

I also ask because stores like RABOM hardly have any 5/8". MOst of the cute ribbons I want are all 7/8 or 1.5

Are there other stores that have an abundant of cute printed 5.8" ribbons?

I use a lot of 5/8 as well. I don't use much 1.5 though. Only for a few things. Bigger apparently isn't better here in Panama City. I like to use the 5/8 and 7/8 for toggle headbands and paci clips. HTH

As for templates, I use the NBNG ones, which offer lengths and sizes for 5/8". I like using 5/8" in smaller bows (basic, twisted, pinwheel), and for chunky tuxedo bows.

You can put it in the middle of the 7/8 of solid or something, that looks pretty when I use my bbm templates
