Full Colour Printed Ribbon at Printed Ribbon UK

Full colour ribbon printing , 3 colour ribbon printing and 2 colour ribbon printing

At Printed Ribbon UK we are one of the few ribbon printers to be able to print in full colour, in house, onto white satin ribbon.  Full colour printed ribbon is also available on white grosgrain ribbon.  Other light ribbon colours may also be printed in colour with some restrictions*. We can also print onto recycled satin and polyester ribbon.

The print with this colour ribbon printing process is a permanent textile dye print that is waterproof and smudgeproof. It produces vibrant and dense print colours. We can also print shading effects with the same colour or different colours that solid colour ribbon printing processes cannot achieve.  Drop shadows can be printed that appear on some logos.

We do not charge any set up, origination or plate charges for this process and the price will be the same whether it is a one colour Pantone match print, 2 colour printed ribbon, 3 colour printed ribbon or even a full colour printed ribbon so the more print colours the better.  We aim to print to as near as possible any Pantone colours for your company.

For best print effect we require high resolution vector artwork  - ai, eps or print quality PDF files.  We can print using high resolution jpgs if no vector artwork is available.

Full colour printed ribbon can be supplied on the roll, cut and sealed to a specified length or for the 100mm ribbon as full colour printed sashes.

We offer price breaks at various quantities so please advise how many metres you are looking for when you enquire about our colour ribbon printing process.

*Some restrictions apply to full colour ribbon printing process:

  • Due to print registration, the woven edge top and bottom and limited print area the narrowest ribbon width we recommend printing on in full colour process is 10mm. 
  • White, cream ivory and some other light print colours are not available with this print process.  However , white can be achieved using the white ribbon colour if there is another colour round it.
  • Light print colours cannot be printed onto dark coloured ribbon as they will not be visible.  Print is dyed into the ribbon not applied on top of it
  • Continuous print cannot be achieved as every 50 or 60cm there will need to be a gap or space between prints due to the printing plate.  However, this is usually ample for any message or logo to achieve a repeat.
  • For best results a discrete company logo or message should be printed centrally in the ribbon with a gap top and bottom rather than printing all the vertical height of the ribbon.
  • This ribbon printing process produces a matt print effect and not a metallic print.  Logo or message will be all matt.
  • Not a restriction as such but please note we only print logos onto ribbon for the actual company who has the logo ownership or for the agreed representative such as graphic design agency, marketing / promotional agents etc.  

Please feel free to email your logo to us for us to review and give free advice on the final print effect that can be achieved.
