Classic Gift Bow

Probably the easiest to tie bow is this classic, go-to look. It’s the same type of bow we all know from when we learned how to tie our shoes as kids. Start by taking the length of desired ribbon and create two loops. Most likely you will make this bow with the same ribbon you wrap around the present or gift box. Second, cross the loops, one in front and one behind. Bring one of the loops through the hole that has been created (almost a third loop, at the bottom). Pull both sides to form the bow.

Classic Pom-Pom Gift Bow

Pom-pom bows are the fullest type of gift bows and are typically used for larger gifts. To make this bow, you will need one very long piece of ribbon. Two colored (each side is a different shade) or printed ribbon is perfect to use for this type of bow. Also, the longer the piece of ribbon, the fuller and bigger the bow will be. Start by folding the ribbon in half to find the middle of the ribbon. Once you have the middle, twist the ribbon once and create a loop on one side.

Do this for both sides until you have the same number of loops on each side with some ribbon remaining for the tails. Once you reach this step, take a smaller length of the same ribbon and tie it around the center of the bow (where you were twisting the loops) to secure the whole thing. Once it is secure, make sure the tails are the same length and then gently pull the loops apart to make the pom-pom.

Hand-Made Cards

From a woven look to embellishments, ribbons are perfect for cards. Add his favorite color or the classic blue to your message to your dad. He’s sure to love it! And, when you add personalized ribbon to a card as an embellishment, it creates a 3D effect and makes everything stand out.

Show your dad how much you care by mixing in ribbons on your homemade greeting card. Not only have you now created your own personalized card unique to your father, but you should still have plenty of the personalized ribbons to wrap any presents that coordinate with the card!

Use custom ribbon rolls to wrap a gift for your dad on Father's Day

Don’t forget the personalization!

Use fun phrases like Happy Father’s Day or To the Best Daddy for your custom ribbon rolls. Make sure to use something that will make your dad proud to be yours. Add names and dates to really make the ribbon roll personalized to that special father figure in your life.

Improve Your Event Using Ribbon Rolls

By paying attention to small details, such as ribbon roll use, you can improve your event success.

full-color ribbons are a great tool to improve your event and branding

Organizing an event can be stressful, but concise planning and paying attention to even the slightest of details will help make any event successful. And, using personalized ribbon rolls is a surefire way to get your event planning rolling. From full-color ribbons to softer organza ribbons, we definitely have the right ribbon to improve your event. Customizing the right ribbon to suit your specific event is essential and can make all the difference in achieving your planning goals.

Imprint, Full-Color & More: Tips to Improve Your Event

Ideally, a ribbon will improve your event because of the imprinting choices. This customization, while seemingly simple, must involve reflection and planning. For example, if you are holding an award banquet to honor a distinguished guest in your area, you want to make sure that your ribbon rolls reflect the appropriate message. Also, make sure to use a uniform ribbon color that either falls in line with your company or matches a theme so as not to isolate individuals.

From dates and themes to donor’s names and other personalized aspects, these ribbon rolls will only improve your event when used appropriately. The imprinting on these ribbons should be a theme, motto or other useful text that will go with the event’s purpose. And, again, make sure the color matches the message.

Ribbon color is a huge part of your event planning. Make sure your ribbons complement your other decorations and overall theme. Using bright orange and yellow ribbons at an event featuring safety awareness is extremely effective. However, the same colors may not be appropriate at a black and white gala. And remember that it isn’t just about the ribbon colors. Make sure that your imprinting color choice will show up, especially from a distance.

Avoiding Common Mistakes

Make sure that everything on your ribbon roll choice will be legible. And, get the correct ribbon size so that your message will be seen and not lost in the ribbon decoration. Carefully consider what you want to have showing on each ribbon display. And, most importantly, remember that a bow will not show the same information as a chair or wall embellishment ribbon.

Some people order several ribbon types to accomplish multiple tasks at an event. While a fatter ribbon will adequately display the imprinting on a bow, a narrower ribbon may show the same information when used as a straight ribbon decoration. And, favor printing works differently than continuous print. (Find out more here.)

some ribbons will improve your event better than others, like this satin ribbon roll wrapped around silverware

From table centerpieces to picture perfect selfie props, colorful imprinted ribbons are the ideal accessory. Even wrap them around cutlery for summer picnics or a more formal corporate dinner. And, they are perfect for tying up a small bag of goodies for each person to take home. At that point, your event has even more power because the friends and family of each attendee will be able to see your message on these ribbons.

From colors to materials, not every ribbon is right for every event. But, personalized ribbons are here to improve your event.

When chosen correctly, these custom ribbon rolls are sure to make your event one to remember. And, no matter what you decide to use for your decorating, make sure that your imprinting choices match your ribbon choice. Printing on satin versus grosgrain and even organza will always show up differently. Remember to watch your text and image choices when selecting your ribbons.

Celebrating at the Coller Industries Incorporated Christmas party

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.”
