Default Korker ribbon question

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask and it's a dumb question I'm sure . I've never done Korkers before. When I see ads that show korker ribbon that is 1 yd does that mean 1 yd before curiling or after?

TIA~
Bren

You know you can make your own korker ribbon and many people that are members here sell it. I purchased mine on a whim one night on e-bay. It was late and I got a good price, at least I think, It was about 28 cents a yard including shipping. I got it from SouthernSawdust. There was a slight error in my product (not a big deal) and she sent me a whole new order of 60 yards...It was above and beyond for customer service. I feel like I owe it to her to pass her name on.

Usually it's measured before curling, but it's always good to ask the seller. Most people don't have an oven large enough to curl on a yard long rod (even diagonally - at least I know I don't ). You may also want to ask what diameter rod was used to curl the ribbon (I like to use 1/4 inch for a tight curl). After the ribbon is curled, it will be about half as long as it was before curling, so 1 yard uncurled is about 18-20 inches long after curling. You should plan to get 6 to 8 pieces (depending on how big you want the bow) out of each 1 yard strand, and plan on using maybe 30 pieces per bow (more or less for desired fullness). I use about 5 yards of ribbon per bow, but you could use anywhere from 3-7 yards.

There are lots of free korker instructions on the internet and threads on the topic on this forum, just search.

Good luck!

Thanx everyone for the responses. I've used korker ribbon before (just a couple pieces in the center of other bows but I've never made an actual Korker bow before. I just made up a bunch of korkers. I'm not good at being able to make printed/satin ones (I can't seem to get my oven temp/combo) right so I was thinking of just buying some of those so I can use a couple strands per bow.

Thanx agian!
