What is the difference
between ribbons, standard, economy and special
||Show Society or club name
only - no fringe - 5cm or 7.5cm in width
||Show society or club name with Champion,
or Reserve Champion only. No class or
breed award stated. 10cm or 15cm wide.
Fringed. This category may also apply
to large numbers of identical sashes.
|| Show society or club name plus bottom
line award, where there are 20 or more
identical awards; ie "champion
bull" or "champion and write-on
scroll". Fringed. 10cm in width.
A less expensive alternative to special
sashes. Must be at least 20 with the
same wording to qualify for this cheaper
||Show society or club name plus standard
class or breed award (i.e. Champion
Girl Rider, Senior Champion Brahman
Bull, Reserve Champion Hardfeather Bantam,
etc.) 10cm or 15cm in width, fringed.
I have lots of show
ribbons, most have been in bags for many
years. They are still in good nick. But
they are a bit creased. Can I iron my satin
ribbons? Perhaps with a tea towel on top
of them, to protect them a bit?
Satin ribbons can be ironed
carefully with thick cotton material both
sides of the ribbon and a cool iron used.
Do we need to ask
for fringing to go on the sashes?
No, it is standard, unless
you tell us otherwise. The colour of the
fringe is matched to the main ink colour
used. The printing and fringing are included
in the price. Place Ribbons do not have
What length ribbon do I need for
Usually 120cm x 5cm is sufficient to tie
the ribbon around the horse's neck. This
is the standard length ribbon. Sashes are
usually the same length. Larger animals
may have longer ribbons, and we make smaller
ones for dogs, cavies, poultry and pavilion
Is it more expensive
to have metallic gold or silver ink?
We now use the premium metallic ink as standard on all our ribbons - at no extra cost.
Can we have different
colours to the usual red, white and blue?
You can have whatever combination
you want from our available ribbon colours.
Just list the colours on your order form.
Are bi-colours available?
Yes, just ask for them. Prices
are a little less than tri-colour sashes.
How do I pay for my
We allow three weeks from
the date of invoice for payment from established
customers. New customers may be asked to
pay at the time of ordering.
What wording do we
need to put on the ribbons and sashes?
This is completely up to your
club, but it is suggested that the basic
club or event name appear on all the place
ribbons, and on the top of the sashes. The
remaining space on the sashes will contain
the event information, or simply something
like "champion". You may get some
ideas from browsing our Products
Can we have different
motifs on different parts of the order?
Yes, but there may be extra
charges for this.
Can we have our own
club logo printed?
No problem. Send us the design
and we will prepare the logo. There may be a
once only charge to do this. You never have
to pay it again. It may cost around
$30 - $50. But if the logo is sent in a clear format and if we need to spend little time preparing the logo to print, then there is no charge.
Can we place a small
Any size is acceptable, however,
smaller orders may incur a setup fee. You
will save on postage by combining several
smaller orders into one. Place ribbons get
cheaper the more you order in any one order.
How much notice do
we need to give for an order?
Most orders can be supplied
within 3 weeks, but we do ask for 4-6 weeks
plus delivery time to allow for our very
busy periods. We will also do rush orders
but an extra fee may apply.
