NEED YOUR RIBBON CUT?
WE CAN CUT ANY WIDTH, LENGTH, AND TYPE OF RIBBON!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What are the different widths of ribbon you can cut? We can
cut any width of ribbon from 1/16” and up. Single face satins,
double face satins, grosgrains, satin acetates, organics, sheers,
wired edge or monofilament edge we can cut them all.
What method will you use to cut my ribbon? The method that we will
use to cut your ribbon depends on several factors such as the type
of ribbon (manmade, natural, wired edge, or monofilament edge, printed,
unprinted, quantity, the width of the ribbon, the length of the ribbon
etc.) 90% of the ribbon jobs will be cut with our ribbon cutting machine
that uses a precision machined cutting blade heated to the right temperature
to cut the ribbon while at the same time sealing the edges to prevent
fraying. We have also been known to use scissors, rotary knifes, hand
held hot knives if necessary.
How many different cut styles do you have? We have 4: 1. Angle cut
2. Straight cut 3. Trapezoid / opposite angle cut 4. Straight / angle
cut. Just choose the method from the shape table below that best suits
you application and let us know when sending in your order.
Can you cut my ribbon so that the ends don’t fray? YES, If
the ribbon is comprised of man-made materials such as the single face
satins, double face satins, grosgrains and satin acetate we can cut
them with our hot knife which heat seals the ends as part of the process.
Other ribbon types and wider widths of ribbon have to be cut by hand
and will be more expensive but we can definitely cut them for you.
I have ribbon from another manufacturer can I send it to you? YES
just calculate your fees using the table below and send us a Purchase
Order and ship us the ribbon and we will start cutting.
How fast can I expect my ribbon? On machine cutting applications
we can cut up to 30,000 pieces a day from the time we receive the
ribbon. Hand cut applications about 10,000 pieces per day. And we
can ship partial orders if necessary. If you have a specific deadline
you will need to confirm delivery dates with our customer service
department before ordering.
After the ribbon is cut how will it be packaged? We reserve the right
to choose the best packaging method based on the requirements of each
job. Generally speaking on machine cuts up to 48” the ribbon
will be laid flat in a box lined with paper or placed in plastic bags
to keep wrinkling to a minimum and to protect the ribbon from moisture
and dust during the transit period. Be advised that some ribbons have
a tendency to be somewhat “curled” toward the end of the
spool and will not lay perfectly flat.
We can also do custom packaging to your specifications. Additional
costs and turnaround times may apply so you will need to discuss pricing
and availability with our customer service department.
Can you cut HOT STAMPED or other types of printed ribbon between
the images? Yes that is called a “precise” cut. Due the
extra time involved to precisely cut ribbon between images there are
pricing variations as shown in the pricing table below. The other
option for cutting printed ribbons is to select “random” cut.
A “random cut” is ribbon that is cut to any length you
choose but the cut itself can and will fall at different locations
of your image. Many individuals with budget constraints will choose
the “random” option.
How do I place an order to get my ribbon cut? You can either fax
us a purchase order to 765-492-9060 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Once we have the order we will contact you via phone to verify the
information and to get you payment info.
How do I know how many rolls I will need?
- Step 1. Take the number of yards on the spool and multiply
x 36 = total inches on the spool.
- Step 2. Divide total inches by the length of your cut=total
pieces per spool
- Step 3. Divide the total pieces of the job by the total
pieces per spool = the total number of rolls needed.
What will you do with the extra ribbon? We normally cut until we
run out of ribbon which usually allows extras for defects, and splices
that accidentally make it into the box. However, if instructed we
will stop cutting once the quantity you specify is reached and ship
any unused portion of the ribbon along with your order. If choosing
this option it is advisable to increase your count by at least 5%
so that you don’t run short. We are not responsible for shortages
unless it is a mistake on our part.
