In your post are you saying they paid $22.00 for a cheer bow? OMG....I think my most expensive is $15 and that one is covered in 3 layers of sequin. I think I need to rethink career choice! LOL

yeah this sounds right to me. I offered a discount to my friend who is a coach and the bows were $15 with the discount, normally $20.
When you bond the ribbon, it takes time plus the sequin isnt a ribbon. It is fabric you have to measure and cut. It is very time consuming for the competition bows.
Check out yella ribbon for all the varieties of cheer bows, I believe she is a member on here.

WOW....Just seems like an awful lot. I use ribbon as a base for my sequin fabric so it looks full and vibrant. I still wouldn't charge $22 for a cheer bow.

Guess that's why I will always have a day job. LOL

Okay.....note to self....I am officially quitting my full-time job and going into the cheer bow business. I might actually make more than I do now. LOL

The bow was over 5 inches wide? WOW I would love to see that in a girls hair. Got a pic? The largest I make is 3" wide.

ok if you're saying the RIBBON was 5 inches WIDE then that's just crazy! the 3-inch wide ribbon already makes a good large size bow.
and a $35 bow?! I have got to see that. I didn't think I would ever see a cheer bow more than $30 .. and I thought $20 was bad LOL and it is!!

I think she means the top of the bow is 5 inches wide.
