I would love to try this. I do the printed ribbon all the time & I hate how stiff it is! I do know though that I used some brand paper from target & it was even stiffer than normal. I usually use avery & its stiff, but not as bad as the offbrand kind. I will have to try this. I will say u can not get the templates to work for me. I am really bad at that, have tried several times & just can't do it.

I hope that makes sense! If you don't have photoshop you can probably do the same thing in a different program. HTH!

Thank you so much! now I have a very stupid question.... how do we get them sized right for different sized ribbons?

I just use word. I make the margins .3 and then I add the image I want and size it down so the height is .75 (don't forget to flip the image horizontally) and then I repeat it. About 3 lines is enough for one 3in boutique bow. I just print mine on tshirt transfer paper from walmart

What kind of printer are y'all using? Inkjet or laser? that is why I haven't tried to print any transfers. All the transfer sheets I can find say inkjet and I only have a laser. I've bought printed ribbons from other people and the ribbon is soo stiff I almost can't make a bow out of it. So to print straight on the ribbon what kind of printer are you using? TIA!
