Simply click on the “Customize” Button, and a new screen will open that will allow you to design your own ribbon
If you add images prior to selecting the base ribbon color, you may need to drag those elements out of the ribbon content area to make your selection. After you choose your ribbon base color, you can then re-drag the elements back into the content area
When you are satisfied with your design, click the “Done” button and your custom designed ribbon will automatically be added to your cart
IF after adding your design to the cart you decide to go back and edit the design further, you MUST update the cart contents otherwise the new design elements will not be included in your ribbon design
Be sure to place a space at the END of your design. Whatever spacing you are using between each design element in your design, you need to place that empty space at the end of your design. If you don’t do this, then every other repeat there won’t be a space and the design elements will be right next to each other without a space.
Greek Letter Images are included in both the “Add Text” option AND the “Choose From Designs” option within the designer tool
I have been designing and printing custom ribbon for 7+ years. The most consistent issue/problem is when a customer submits a very low resolution image(s) for printing.
The print industry standard is a minimum of 300 dpi
The resolution for an “INTERNET” image is 99.9% of the time displayed in a resolution of 72 dpi
Although the internet image appears to be clear and crisp on your computer screen, this will not be the case when used for printing.
When it is actually printed, it will not be clear and crisp.
Depending on the image, it may actually be quite blurry and the image edges will be blurred.
Many times the image can still be used as the actual printing space on ribbon is small as well.
However, IF the original image is already deprecated in quality AND is also a 72 dpi resolution it most likely will not look well when printed even on ribbon.
When setting up this shop I originally set the minimum upload image resolution @ 300 dpi
From experience I accepted the simple fact that the majority of you will NOT submit 300 dpi images
Thus, I have changed the accepted resolution size for uploading images to 72 dpi
