3 Ways to Find Business Success with Ribbons

Starting a business is hard work, and having business success requires sacrifices. But, many business owners don’t talk about what you need to keep that success going. This journey to greatness starts with you, the business owner.

While ribbons may not be the answer to every question along the way to success, they will play a key role in many ways. So, make sure to keep these ribbons on hand at all times so they are available to help you when you need them.

Custom ribbons will help in any business success by adding logos and other key company information.

1) Product Packaging for Business Success

Branded ribbons are a great way to help customers trust your business. Adding a company logo and slogan to ribbon rolls or badge ribbons is a great way to help others recognize your brand. Now that you have these ribbons, you can add them to name tags, products in your store and goody bags that are handed out at conventions and other events.

All other custom ribbons are also here to help your business succeed. No matter your choice, make sure your color, imprint and logo are consistent with your established brand. By adding these ribbons to things that will get passed around (think promotional products or samples), word of mouth advertising will start to work in your favor. Once this happens, potential clients and customers will start recognizing your brand.

2) Customer Retention

A popular way of promoting your brand is to give away promotional products and gifts. This can help you to build your brand recognition and increase sales. Don’t limit yourself on the types of gifts you give away. It can be something as simple as a homemade treat to an actual product sample. Just remember to brand it with your logo, company slogan or something that makes it truly yours. Use ribbon rolls with your slogan to wrap around boxes or gift bags.

Remember that visibility is key to customer retention. By using custom ribbons around your store or office, you are sure to find business success. Customers and clients will start to recognize your brand, and when they need what you offer, you will be at the top of their mind.

3) Employee Appreciation

A happy employee is a helpful one. So, keep your crew happy and you’ll get even more word of mouth advertising. And, by giving to your employees (whether it’s gifts or money), you will get something back.

When you give a gift to your employees, wrap it with care and a little bit of branded ribbon. Use badge ribbons with custom statements declaring your appreciation for a job well done. Or, use ribbon rolls with your logo and the text “Thank You” to show your employees just how much you care.

Ribbons Lead to Business Success

Custom ribbon rolls and badge ribbons with company logo will lead to business success

From color to content, ribbons are a versatile tool that will help anyone with branding their business. However, by customizing badge ribbons to ribbon rolls, you’re giving your brand greater strength. From store sales to getting-to-know-you corporate retreats, ribbons are a perfect way to include those around you that may not know everything they should about your company.

Most of our personalized ribbons can be printed with a company logo and each ribbon has its own value. Ribbon rolls are great for corporate gifting and event decoration. Use badge ribbons only on badge holders and name tags, but also for awards, bookmarks and other recognition pieces. Rosette ribbons are commonly used as awards and also to highlight accomplishments in an office or business setting.

3 Types of Ribbon Gift Bows

Every year people share gifts for many occasions, from birthdays, weddings and baby showers to Valentines, Mother’s and Father’s day. And, of course, the year-end holidays of Christmas, Hanukah and Kwanza. 

Make your gifts look more festive and fun to unwrap with bows using that personalized ribbon you ordered. Adding a ribbon gift bow adds a personal touch and makes the gift seem more luxurious or fun. We all like receiving (and giving) presents with flair and finesse.

The first bow is quite basic in that it’s the same type of bow we all know from when we learned how to tie our shoes as children. Start by sliding the ribbon under the package, bringing the ends over the top and knotting the two ends together; at this point, check that the tails are the same length. Second, make a loop with the left side of the ribbon pining it between your thumb and forefinger to hold it in place. Finally, make a second loop with the right side of the ribbon and knot the loops on the top of the package, arranging them so everything looks good. See this in action at WikiHow.

Two-Colored Ribbon Bow

Make this bow independently and then secure it to the present or gift box. For this bow, you will need two ribbon widths and two colors of ribbon; let your imagination go wild! Place the skinnier ribbon on top of the wider ribbon and secure it into place, either by stitching or gluing it down. Now, you should have a solid, single piece of ribbon to use for your bow. Fold the two edges into the middle of the ribbon to create a continual loop and glue the edges together. To hide these edges, take a smaller length of either color ribbon around the middle. This action will also gather the center to help create the look of a bow. Tie this off, or secure it with a small amount of glue.

The third bow is a classic pom-pom bow with tails. Again, make this bow and then secure it to the present or gift bow. Pom-pom bows are the most lavish type of gift bow. To make this bow, you will need one very long piece of ribbon. 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 center, twist the ribbon and create a loop on one side, do the same on the other side. Repeat until you have an equal 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, ensure the tails are the same length and gently pull the loops apart to make the pom-pom. Watch a short Better Homes and Gardens video to see this in action.
