Perfectly. Thanks. I am just surprised that they are able to offer this ribbon so inexpensively figuring in the fees to Disney and Sanrio. Great to hear that it is on the up and up!

Also, I wasn't asking about Lilredsmiles personally. I didn't notice any of her items even made with that ribbon. I was just curious about the ribbon being sold from those stores and which I happened to find in her siggy.

She is a mod for the company. Also I think they have some sort of contract to print it for Disney as well. Not sure what they provide it for. I read that somewhere. Might be why it does not cost them as much.

You guys rock! Thank you for answering these questions. Yes, these ribbons were printed legally. Donna designs these ribbons for the companies & then as payment for her work, she gets some of the rolls to resell in her shop. This is why they are such limited quantities. She won't reprint on her own without permission.

I think if she wanted to sell it she should make her own and show that pic, not your pic, I know everyone makes what everyone else does, but use your own pics!!

This doesn't have to do with bows, but I had an interesting experience with tutu photos. I happened to be on Etsy and I noticed someone using one of my photos for a hot pink pom pom tutu. It was the only tutu she'd sold, which I found interesting in itself. I sent her a convo explaining it was my photo and would she please remove it.

She replied in all caps saying she made the tutu and her best friend took the photo and that I better not contact her again.

Naturally, I couldn't resist contacting her again. I sent her the link to the photo on my flickr page (posted months and months before she put it on Etsy) and unless she lives in my house (without my knowledge) and put each pom pom in the exact same place and used the exact same spot on my living room wall, and took the picture with the exact same poor quality, there's no way she made that tutu. The best part is that her profile is all about how much she loves the Lord. So....being a smart aleck, I mentioned that for someone who loves the Lord so much she has some pretty flexible morals. (really, why lie over something so silly?) Let's just say it was quite a heated response full of "saved Christian lady" etc. but no more claims about the tutu. I didn't bother responding and she is still using the photo.

I don't make the tutu anymore, it's a pain to make, and I don't care if she makes it all day long, I'd just like her to use her own photo.

Sorry for the long winded tale...just thought I'd share.

Totally wrong! Not to mention it's stupid to "display" something you cannot make on your own?? WOW some people lack brain cells.
