Satin ribbon has two types to choose from single-sided and double-face.

The double-face satin ribbon is shiny on both sides which adds a luxurious touch to the ribbon compared to the single-sided satin, it is fairly suitable for brand ribbons and boutique ribbons.
Grosgrain ribbon made from polyester is a sophisticated ribbon with a ribbing texture, it has the same luxurious sense as the double-face satin ribbon.

Which Types of Printing are Used on the Custom Ribbon?
Print text, logos, slogans, pictures, and patterns on the ribbon to make the ribbon look better and more unique. But do you know how many printing processes are there for custom ribbons? What printing process is used for ribbons with logos?
We list several printing processes that are often used on ribbons.
Screen printing is one of the most widely used printing methods and it is suitable for a variety of different material surfaces, including fabric, paper, plastic, glass, and wood.
Most of the printing items we see are likely to be produced by screen printing. For example, the image on your t-shirt, the graphic on your coffee mug, and the logo on your phone.
The logo made by screen printing is very clear and vivid. The colors of the silk screen can be customized according to the Pantone color, and the screen can also print three-dimensional text and patterns on the ribbon.
Hot foil Stamping
Hot foil stamping is the printing process of using heat and pressure to stamp a foil pattern to the ribbon. It is an ideal printing method to create metallic symbols on the ribbon.
There are two printing effects of the logo on the ribbon
- Simple flat foil stamping
- Deep embossing with foil stamping
The metallic logo on the ribbon can be gold, silver, and even custom colors.
The hot foil stamping process also is extensively used in gift packaging products, such as labels, business cards, gift boxes, shopping bags, etc.
Heat Transfer Printing
Heat transfer printing, also known as sublimation printing, is a process of transferring images onto the ribbon surface by using heat.
Compared with hot stamping, thermal transfer printing is usually used for full-color pattern printing and gradient design of ribbons. It is washable and durable.
