Default United Beads Ribbons Reviews

Hi Ladies

I heard great stuff about UB's 3/8 ribbons. What about their 7/8 and 1.5 polka dots and solid grosgrain ribbons? Any good?

Their prices are really attractive. I am tempted to get one of each colour. I have not found any other suppliers with matching prices.

Thanks!
Angela

I would say that the larger ribbon is just really "limp." It doesn't really hold its shape well and needs to be starched/hair sprayed to look nice. I have not gotten the dots in the larger sizes, but have been happy with it in the 3/8 size. Their colors don't match up perfectly with other suppliers either. But I buy it and use it

I love the 3/8 and have been happy with the 7/8. The 7/8 is a bit limp as pp mentioned, but depending on what I use it for, I've had no problems with that. I've used it as trim on pillowcase dresses, ribbon shirts, ribbon socks, and tails down bows and have been very happy with it. I wish I had ordered more colors.

I have an order from UB that should be coming in any day now, so far i've only used the 3/8" but in this order I got some 1.5" so I'm anxious to try it out!

Oh! Do keep me posted! I am debating between getting from UB or one of those wholesale site from China or HKG. But at 100yds per roll, it will take me forever to finish it!

Hmm... 3/8 and 7/8 seems to have passed the mark... we are left with 1.5 now. Can't wait to hear the reviews. Their ribbons are really nicely "priced"! LOL!

Yeah I'll let you know. I wish it would be here today, but the mail doesn't run today. So we're going to have to wait

I have been using all the sizes for quite a while. I like them all. They are a bit thinner but when I have the stiffer ribbon I have trouble getting it folded. I find it easier to starch a bit when I am finished. The ribbon with dots on it is a bit more firm.
