Ribbon types

Some times it can be difficult to know which ribbon type you require, the names can be confusing and change over years, for example we are quite often asked what is the difference between Petersham and Grosgrain ?
In response to this we are in the process of setting up a questions and answers page on the site, this can be found at top of the page under the main orange tabs.
Here you will find answers not only to general questions like how long will my order take to arrive?

This is an ever developing page so please feel free to let us know your idea's on additions that you would like to see to this page. We can be e mailed at: sales@simplyribbons.com

We are in the process of updating the layout of the site at the moment, the first changes have taken effect and you will notice these in the Satin Ribbon sections, here you will find that we have broken out the various widths as separate products in there own right. This is in response to a number of requests that we have received and we hope that it will help make your purchasing process a lot easier.

Description Of Ribbon Types

In the following section we have tried to give a basic description of the main types of ribbon and there suggested uses. We hope that this information is of help as a rough guide. However if you are still unsure as to the type of ribbon that you require then please as always feel free to contact us at simply ribbons on 01691 780416 and we will be only to pleased to assist you in any way that we can.

Satin Ribbons

This ribbon is probably one of the biggest selling ribbon styles. As the name suggest the Satin Ribbon has a smooth high luster finish to it. The ribbon does still come in two types of finish. The first and these days the most popular with our customers is the Double Faced Satin Ribbon, as the name suggest this ribbon has a satin finish on both side meaning that they both appear glossy and smooth.

The second less common type is the Single Satin Ribbon. Whilst one face of the ribbon is smooth and glossy the reverse side of the ribbon is textured and has more of a matt appearance to it. This Single faced Satin Ribbon use to be the more popular of the two as it was a lot cheaper however with improved manufacturing the price of the Double Faced Ribbon has come down to the point where by it is the Satin Ribbon of choice for many people.

Satin Ribbon is very versatile, it can be printed on, it bows well and the better quality Satins can be washed, tumble dried and ironed as a result they are widely used in garment manufacture.

We supply three different grades of Satin Ribbon.

Premium Double Satin

Our premium satin ribbon is a UK manufactured ribbon, this is made to a high standard and as a result offers a consistence of colour, it can be washed and dry cleaned and has a high luster appearance. This product meets the highest levels of testing and as a result is very popular for a very wide range of uses including cake decorating, clothes making, promotional work, store window design. 

Mid Range Double Satin

This Double Satin is slightly lighter in terms of the weight of the ribbon when compared with the premium range, however it offers a good basic colour range with a great clarity to the colour. it is widely used for promotional work, Wedding invitations and general arts and crafts.

Budget Double Satin

 A Cheap double satin ribbon from the far east, this comes in a good range of colours but does not have the range of widths that the other two type offer, also as a result of being imported we cant guarantee consistence of colour supply on this product. However if you need a cheap satin for packaging work then this ribbon is ideal .
it you have any questions with regards to Double Satin Ribbons or need any further information with regards the Satin Ribbon ranges that we stock then please feel free to contact us at anytime.

Grosgrain Ribbon

This is a very distinctive style of ribbon and as a result can be very easily identified. The Grosgrain Ribbon to all intent and purpose looks like it has been ribbed. This effect runs along the whole length of the ribbon, this is made as a result of the weft being heavy then the warp when the ribbon is woven the net result is the formation of the cords along the ribbon. This style of ribbon is quite old, it use to be made from natural fibers and was only available in Black or White however todays Grosgrain Ribbon is manufactured using Polyester and comes in a rainbow of shades.

Using polyester means that the ribbon is extremely strong, not only is it durable but it can be washed, folded, stitched and heat sealed. As a result of this , the Grosgrain ribbon has become very popular. Today you will see this ribbon used on the hems of Polo shirts, sports clothing, furniture, quilts and many other garments as well as used for bow making, packaging, gift ware and promotional use.

The polyester fiber means that this ribbon can be offered in a wide range of colours, these all have a slightly matt finish to them rather then the high shine finish of a Satin ribbon. This colour appearance in its self is just one of the many reason that many people choose this style of ribbon over other available.

Grosgrain ribbon can be seen on the market place in many variants, there are quite a few companies making this product to different standards, the main difference is in the thickness of the grosgrain. At simply ribbons we only stock Berisfords Grosgrain as we feel that this is a good high quality grosgrain ribbon it handles well and offers a consistence of colour.

We along with many of other companies today also hold this product with a print effect on it. Grosgrain Ribbon looks very attractive when coupled with a polka dot print or a logo theme running along the length of the ribbon. As a direct result of this pleasing effect this style of printed ribbons have become very fashionable. To meet this demand Berisfords Ribbons have launched a completely new collection based on this look. They have called this Natural Charms. We have been impressed with this range and as a result have added it to our product offering you can find this range listed at the top of the page in the orange tabs.

Grosgrain is an extremely durable and flexible ribbon as a result it forms part of our core offering and is something that we always keep in stock ,If you need any further advise or help with regards to Grosgrain ribbons then please feel free to contact us at anytime. 

Sheer Ribbons

Currently the Sheer Ribbon has to be the third biggest selling ribbon style for us at Simply Ribbons. The look of the ribbon is very simple as it comprises of a loosely weaved sheer fabric surface, as a result of the lighter weave the ribbon takes on a slightly translucent appearance which makes it very light, and slightly see through , this is a distinct look and feel to this type of ribbon.
This product comes in a number of different qualities of Nylon as a result the handle and look of the ribbon can change quite dramatically from supplier to supplier, with some ribbons having a very soft feel to them, whilst others have a slightly coarser handle to the ribbon.
This product looks very attractive especially in the pastel shades and as a result we find the the ribbon is now becoming the ribbon of choice with a lot of Wedding Card manufacturers.
As standard we hold stock on two different qualities of this Ribbon, the first is our premium Sheer Ribbon Range which comes From Berisfords Ribbons and is a lighter weight yarn with a very soft feel to the ribbon. We can now also offer the same Sheer ribbon from Berisfords Ribbons but with the added benefit of having a lightly wired edge running along both edges of the fabric ribbon, this gives the ribbon a slight amount of stiffness which allows it to be twisted and molded to the desired shape.
At the budget end of the range we can now offer a slightly stiffer Sheer Ribbon from Shindo Ribbons this range comes in a more limited range of widths which include a 15mm and a 25mm. Since this nylon is slightly thicker it is more attractive to our crafting clients who tell us that this type of ribbon is better to use as it does not flop and holds its shape well.

What ever the style colour or width of Sheer Ribbon you need feel free to contact us at anytime for advise and we will do all that we can to help. Tel: 01691 780416
