But first, what are rosette ribbons?

There are three parts to these ribbons.

Each rosette comes with one to four tiers of ribbons, depending on your rosette choice, tucked and pleated to embellish their look. This stacking of ribbons is what makes rosettes stand out from any other award ribbon. And, it gives them their character and name. The way the tiers are stacked makes these ribbons look like a rose!

The second part is the center button. Each button comes as cello, gold-rimmed or satin. And each one can be customized to fit any need you have. Add a logo or a stock graphic to make your ribbon stand out. The button can also have a custom color to match the rosette. This part also holds the rosette together to give it the final custom touch.

And lastly, the streamers. While the rosette is what makes these ribbons fancy, the streamers may be the most crucial part. Personalize any of these rosettes with text, logos and other details. There are options of one, two or three streamers with one color imprinting. The colors are also chosen to match the rosette and button. And, this is where you add any custom text to explain the award or other use for your rosette ribbons. Add names, titles and achievements to the streamers to meet any of your needs.

Awards and Such

From equestrian events to fairs and classrooms, Rosette Ribbons are perfect for all awards.

Rosette Ribbons are great for place ribbons. So, when you have a classroom contest or a need to represent several athletes for the quality of their work, choose from a variety of styles and colors. Most ribbons represent up to nine places and also participation awards. All our rosette ribbons are high quality and can be ordered as custom or stock rosette award ribbons.

And, these rosettes are perfect for awards for any shows or event types. From sports, hobbies and animals to horticulture, business achievements and education everyone will want a rosette as their award for a job well done. With the fancy tops and long streamers, the high-end look will indeed show recognition for doing well.

Customize each ribbon to your needs by choosing a logo or graphic to go with the sporting event or school activity. Then, provide a message for each streamer and individual names for each award. No matter your choice, each award recipient is sure to treasure such a unique gift.

Or for just turning a year older. And, no matter the reason for the gift, your recipient is sure to remember the thoughtfulness that went into the customization of this unique ribbon.

Our annual tradition of the Christmas party includes a giant luncheon hosted and catered at a local hotel. This year’s meal included prime rib, chicken, salmon, asparagus and other sides for a feast fit for a king. There were also delicious appetizers of crackers and spinach dip with prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

Vance, the Design Manager, said, “I enjoyed the appetizers, I was nearly full by the time the main meal was starting. And I liked that this year’s party was smaller, with only the one guest it made the party feel more about our accomplishments as a group than a meal with families.”

Playing games at the Coller Industries Incorporated Christmas partyWe also played games and gave out prizes for raffles. From a holiday word scramble to trying to remember who had played the jolly man in red, the games were a blast and the presents even better.

And, every year each employee receives a personalized gift from Coller Industries. This year was a water bottle decorated with the CI logo which was full of candy. We also got a custom embroidered jacket with the CI logo.
