Acknowledge Success Using Prize Ribbons

From rosette ribbons to badge ribbons, we have just what you need to help recognize colleagues, family and friends in their success. When you recognize and acknowledge success in anyone, it has incredible outcomes, especially when you use personalized ribbons.

Acknowledge Success and Achievements

Even in a fun work environment, employees want to feel appreciated for their hard work. Thank each team member for their contribution by customizing badge ribbons that highlight their achievements. From perfect attendance to closing a big sale, recognizing these accomplishments increases company loyalty. It also encourages team members to congratulate each other on their accomplishments. By creating a work culture where everyone feels valued, your employees will love coming to work. You will also attract new talent as word of your positive company culture spreads.

Custom Ribbons

Custom rosette ribbon with a message of outstanding service is a great way to acknowledge success.

Using custom rosette ribbons to acknowledge success will help anyone feel special. Employees, and really anyone, will know how much you care when you put thought into a prize ribbon just for them. And, you can customize these ribbons to say just about anything!

Start by picking how detailed you want the ribbon to be by choosing streamer count and length and how big you want the rosette part. Then you can work out which colors you want for your ribbon. Once you have chosen these styles, add any text and graphics or icons you need for these fun and fabulous ribbons.

Stock Ribbons

Stock award ribbons are a great way to acknowledge success.

While these prize ribbons are pre-designed, they do not take away from any distinguished honors or successes. So, save some time and get a stock ribbon ordered to help you acknowledge success around your office or team today.

Choose from a variety (rosette and flat) of ribbons to give out the recognition someone deserves for a job well done. From simple stock rosettes that simply say 1st Place to flat prize ribbons with bold colors and fantastic messages, all of these ribbons are just as glorious as custom ones.

Recognizing Achievement and Celebrating Excellence

Not only do people like receiving recognition for their achievements, but they deserve it as well. When you recognize achievement, several things happen. One, they are provided with a vital boost to continue in their excellence. Two, they gain happiness for their job well done. And, three, the recognition spills to other people. It’s almost like a ripple effect that goes beyond just the person receiving the recognition. After all, one good turn deserves another, right?

So, how can you learn to make achievements work for you no matter where you work (education, business and organizations)? Driving excellence in your organization will help to boost employee engagement and clientele satisfaction.

Immediately Acknowledge Success

By recognizing achievement as soon as you see it, you help to encourage everyone around you. Whether that’s in an office or a store, these celebrations of success will strengthen your team and help your colleagues perform better while doing their jobs. And, it will help you to see how other’s success will help your success.

Pageant Ribbons for Your Event Preparation

Even though many pageants won’t start for a month or two, now is the time to get all of your pageant ribbons! Getting your orders in now will ensure that you have all of your ribbon needs before your pageant even starts.

Now, maybe your future event isn’t a traditional beauty pageant featuring all women. Perhaps it is even more of a fair or festival. It doesn’t matter which type of pageant you are hosting, it still needs ribbons. But, what you do need to remember is that some of these custom ribbons take a while to make and ship.

Award ribbons can be a flat piece of ribbon, such as our prize ribbons, or a fancier use of a ribbon material, such as a rosette. Every award ribbon can be presented as a mark of recognition to honor recipients for their accomplishments. Award ribbons also come in all shapes and sizes. So, let’s go over all of our award ribbons and get you started down the right path toward your pageant ribbons needs.

Making Rosettes Work for Your Pageant Ribbons

From adorning pageant sashes to giving them as awards, rosettes have a definite place at your event. Whether they are large or small, each rosette should be chosen specifically for how they will be used and who will receive them. If you need an award ribbon, make sure your prize suits your champion.

For a beauty pageant, you may want one of our larger ribbons like an Amesbury Rosette. With its multiple colors and beautiful pleats and tucks, this ribbon will suit your prize winning beauty. And, if your pageant has a theme, you can customize the center button to match. Add personalized text to the front streamer, and your winner is sure to know how much you admire them.

Pro Tip: Use rosettes to number all of your contestants with pretty pageant ribbons!

But, don’t underestimate our stock rosettes. Some events need pageant ribbons for everyone in attendance, especially when it’s an event for teens or children. We have colors and award names for everyone involved in your pageant (even a participation award).

Holiday Decorating with Custom Ribbons

Have you ever asked yourself how to use custom ribbons for holiday decorating ideas?

Well, we’ve said before that using custom ribbons for decorations is a great idea. But, what about the holiday season? Are they any good for Christmas or Hanukkah? What about the New Year holiday? Of course, they are! We have ideas ranging from holiday door wreaths to ribbon walls for a photo booth (and nearly everything in between). However, we want to prove to all of our customers that ribbons can be used for everything, especially holiday decorating.

So, here are some surprising ways to use custom ribbons for your holiday decorating!

Ribbon Rolls: Decorating a Tree

Start at the top of the tree and roll a ribbon straight to the floor. Or, run a ribbon entirely around the tree for a more traditional look. But, no matter how you use those ribbon rolls, make sure to pick the right colors to match the rest of your decorations. Go with red, green or white to match the holiday. Maybe you have a theme for your home this year? Try matching colors or use contrasting colors to brighten up any living space for the holidays.

Ribbon Rolls: Ornament Ties

No ornament is complete without a way to hang it. So, make your tree stand out this year with custom ribbon rolls. Maybe you have a ribbon roll with names from your wedding or your company party. Tie them around each ornament and add a touch of personality to your tree. Or, get creative with where you hang ornaments. They look great dangling from the mantle or a staircase.

Rosette Ribbons: Ornaments

Speaking of a fun idea for custom ornaments, do you have any rosette ribbon awards lying around? Maybe you don’t quite know what to do with them. Well, how about using the string or fastener on the back of those ribbons and adding them to your holiday tree. They are sure to add a pop of color and spark some charm.

Rosette Ribbons: Gift Bows or Tags

We’ve shared before how badge ribbons are the perfect to/from gift tags for every gift. But here’s a new idea. Use the rosette on a ribbon as your tags or the bow. Cut off the circular portion and add it to any gift box for a magical and unique touch. Nothing will quite say, “Happy Holidays” like a fun and festive way to distinguish your gifts from others this year.

Badge Ribbons: Table Runners

One of the best things about this time of year is all of the homemade crafts and goodies. So, get to work and let your badge ribbons do the talking! Although you might require a sewing machine for this craft, using bright, custom ribbons is one way to get everyone excited for your decorating. Either run the badge ribbons in straight lines the length of your table or create a pattern. But, no matter what you do with them, you’re sure to get all of the attention for your crafty thinking!

Badge Ribbons: Christmas Stockings

Another idea that might require a sewing machine is to make everyone matching Christmas stockings. Line up your badge ribbons end to end and get to decorating your home with this fun craft project. These stockings can also make wonderful neighbor or colleague gifts. Fill them with all sorts of goodies and give them away. The recipient is sure to love everything about their new Christmas stocking.

So, no matter what type of ribbons you have, we guarantee you can find something to do with them for the holidays. Now, get back to decorating!

Best of Show: Festivals and Fairs

State festivals and county fairs have two things in common: the elusive best of show and award ribbons.

From incredible horse shows, food demonstrations and live music to fried food, butter sculptures and roller coasters, festivals and fairs can be an incredible experience. And, don’t forget the best part: those best of show ribbons! But, before we get into our favorite topic of ribbons, let’s talk about the difference between a festival and a fair.

a festival and a fair both have something in common: best of show award ribbons

FESTIVAL vs. FAIR

Briefly, a festival is a gathering of people to celebrate something, historically religious holidays (feast days), but now also secular ones, e.g., Kwanzaa, or the Burning Man, initially held to celebrate the summer solstice. Mardi Gras is a famous New Orleans festival, a religious one celebrated more quietly in other areas.

A fair is a gathering of vendors or tradespeople for the entertainment, commerce or other purpose. There are job fairs (hardly a festival), book fairs, farm shows (also called fairs) where people show their prized livestock or farm products for the entertainment (and often sales for charity) of both fellow farmers and non-farmers alike, county fairs (mostly just summer entertainment), etc.

So, now that we know the difference between a festival and a fair, we can focus on more important things. Things like how to win your Best of Show ribbon!

While we don’t have specifics, especially when it comes to things other than ribbons themselves, on what the best looking cow is or if you have the best tasting chili, we do have a little bit of advice. No matter your location, from Texas to Minnesota, the best thing you can do to win that coveted prize ribbon is to try your hardest. Work on your craft and put the required time in to make sure you know what you’re doing.

Here at Coller Industries, that’s exactly what we do with our custom ribbons (and every personalized product we sell). We have been working on our craft for nearly 25 years, and are top in our trade. So, while we can’t really award ourselves with Best of Show ribbons (judges consider that cheating), we might just try.

But, don’t take our word for it!

Jeff Halbach, a poultry judge at last year’s Minnesota state fair, said, “The birds that end up on champion row usually are sound in body, correct and bright in color, have been cleaned and prepared for showing by their owners. And, finally, they have that winning personality.”

Emily Griffiths, also a judge (beef cattle) at the 2018 Minnesota State Fair, said, “I have always believed that beef heifer shows are very comparable to a beauty pageant in that it is about combining desirable female traits in a well-presented form with poise and style. You want an amount of body and muscle that is proportional and well suited to the animal’s frame with excellent structure. What separates an ordinary cow in the pasture from a champion at the state fair are those heifers with an extra amount of class, style, and grace. Those characteristics are not just limited to people—cattle can have those, too!”

Okay, on to those elusive Best of Show ribbons!

From county fairs to holiday festivals, personalized ribbons are sure to bring home the Best of Show! And, no matter your ribbon choice, we have something to meet all of your festival and fair needs. Whether it’s a pie eating contest or a 4-H event, ribbon rolls are sure to amaze with the right customization.
