On the Mend

The last month has been hard on my
little family of 6.
It all started with a trip to the post office, turned out I didn’t make it all the way there.
I ended up getting very sick after and was in bed for 7 days! I have never slept so much in my life!
I can’t tell you how much cold medicine I went through. My husband did really well with the kid watching.
Thank goodness there was no flying that week. As I got out of bed after 7 days I found that my poor little family was
getting sick as well. My husband who NEVER gets sick was even sick.
The flu and pneumonia, so hard to get rid of!
After going through loads of cold and cough medicine and vapor rub I think we may live!
I have not worked in what seems like forever and I have orders that are late.
Just about everyone that has placed and order has been so very understanding.
I want you all to know how very grateful I am to you.
When your family needs you there isn’t anything to do other than drop it all.
I just want to let you know I am so very sorry if this has put anyone behind in their work.
I wished not only for you but for my sickly babies that this had never happened.
I will be back to work starting today. I am hoping to get everything done as quickly as I can.
Again I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to my customers that have had to wait on me.

Custom Ribbon

LOR is now the place to order custom printed ribbon!

I have found a new love….ribbon printing. After trying loads of different techniques I have found what works best and the ribbon is coming out prefect! I am so excited.

Now there are a few things you may want to know about the ribbon:

I print mostly on 7/8” Grosgrain White ribbon. I can print other sizes and on any color but the 7/8” is the most popular.

I do not recommend you using the 3/8” for korker ribbon. The glue from the transfer paper will melt off.

I have 2 albums of ribbon available to you.

Album 1: Has Yelly Beans Designs graphics that I have printed. You do have to buy the graphic from her before I can print any ribbon for you. The reason for this is because I have not bought the graphics myself to print. She is always running a special on her graphics, buy 3 get 1 free. She also has bottle cap images to match just about every ribbon design she has. Also if you cannot find what you are looking for she will make you a custom ribbon graphic! After you have bought the graphic you can have unlimited amount of ribbon printed. There is no need to buy the graphic every time you want ribbon printed.

Album 2: Have graphics I have bought and can print. You do not have to buy the graphics in this album. The graphics come from different designers.

If your ribbon prints come out with little oooppss spots do not worry I add to your order at no cost to you. I try to make it where you will have enough to cut out the bad spot but still have the amount of ribbon you need.

If you are unhappy with your ribbon at all please contact me ASAP so we can work out a reprint.

If you just do not like your printed ribbon please contact me. If I offer you a refund please understand that you will not get a refund from Yelly Beans Designs for the graphics.

3/8” ribbon by the yard $1.50

5/8” ribbon by the yard $1.65

7/8” ribbon by the yard $1.75

1.5”ribbon by the yard $2.00
