I feel your pain. I love the UB ribbon - it's my first choice. But their lack of colors has driven me to Schiff. I will share a little secret with you - Bill at Rockinribbons on Ebay has a FEW extra colors that are UB quality. I got Navajo Turquoise, Spring Moss, Ocean Blue and Periwinkle from him recently. He also had Baby Maize, pastel pink and I forget what other ones. If you don't see it listed in his ebay store - email him - he just might have it laying around!

There's a YAMA buy going on over at bowsandblings forum at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bowsandbling/
The prices are a little more than UB, but there's a ton more colors. I haven't ordered YAMA before (at least not that I know of), but am thinking about ordering some through this buy. They have solids and dots available.

I've ordered Yama ribbon from Hairbow Center (at least I think it's Yama ribbon...all the same colors). I found the ribbon to be very slick and shiny and it creased when looped into bows - it didn't stay fluffy, kwim? I won't order it again.

Do you think if many of us contacted UB and requested more colors in their offering that it might make a difference? I would think if the interest is there, they would be interested in expanding their color choices.

I have ordered some of the striped ribbon and really like it. Actually, one of the prints I ordered was identical to some I got from Michael's a year or so ago....it was so much cheaper at UB!!

I was at UB this week...they had one new color that I haven't seen yet...a really pretty pink color...I also asked if she's going to be getting any prints in like leopard, zebra, etc...she says she's been checking on prices...just a head up, I think they will slowly be adding more colors... =)

Maybe it is the hot pink...I haven't seen their color chart in awhile...They have a light pink, dark pink and hot pink...so maybe it's not new, but new to me =)
