Default Confused...

I've noticed some discrepencies in my color chart and decided to update it.

RABOM matches the Schiff site as far as colors go, but while trying to find a current Offray list, I've found 3 different lists.

Does anyone know where a true current list is? I've looked at ribbonqueen, ribbonplace, and JKM - they all three have differences from one another. Now I'm sporting a rather painful headache from trying to figure it out and getting more confused by the minute. It would be much easier if I had started doing made to match bows earlier on and could remember this sort of thing offhand, but until not too long ago I just found what I could in local stores.

I also haven't figured out if there's a certain time of year those two main companies introduce their new colors for the year. Some of you have been around the ribbon business much longer than I have - have you ever noticed any trends in regards to this?

I gotta go find some Tylenol.

this is brought up on a search of offray color cart. I think it JKM, so I don't think it's helpful, but ... thought I'd take a shot.

Hey Tonya,

All three of those carry different colors from offray. The latest offray color chart I purchased from Leslie's bowtique. I also have one from JKM. I haven't been able to get every color that is carried by all three on one card. I just offer the majority of the colors to my customers and buy the off the wall ones for my self. Like mineral ice or watermelon haven't been on my color cards but I know they are available but only from a select few.

Thanks! I was starting to think that and then started over with my color organization to fit the site I usually buy from, but that's when the confusion started. I got to thinking, well if I was selling ribbon, I wouldn't carry this color .... *ding* the lightbulb went off and I realized that maybe that was the case everywhere.

I'll just fix it to match where I buy from since that'll be easiest in the long run.

Hey Lorraine,

I would be instrested in seeing what is on it. I have 3 charts. One from JKM and the other two I had made by different people. They all have different color options.

I would LOVE to see pics of your chart! That would be awesome. When going through all their colors, I can't help but wonder about all the in-between colors we never see.

Thanks so much!

Oh that would be great if you could share! I just bought a color chart from
I Want My Own Color Charts but I was wondering if there was a more inclusive one.

Not sure about this, but I think there are places that do custom charts.

I actually got my first color chart from a friend and it had a mixture of Offray and Schiff on it. Since then I've moved all the little ribbon pieces onto my own chart (heat sealed them so they won't fray and used little scrapbooking photo rectangle adhesive thingys to stick them all on)that I printed on cardstock and now I'm updating it. After I finish removing discontinued colors and adding new ones I'll reprint it and move all those little ribbons to the new one. I like having both ribbon manufacturers in color order all on one chart because then there's not as much to look through and no flipping back and forth to make sure I've got the best match when I'm comparing fabrics to it. I know if the ribbon piece is Offray or Schiff by if there's an item# by it or not.

I'd be happy to share my chart when its done if anyone wants to change the pic/info at the top and then use it as a base for their own 'all-inclusive' color chart.

I'm waiting to print the new one until we hear back from Lorraine though. I want this update to last a while since it's fairly time consuming to move each little ribbon piece!
