How can I print on satin ribbon? Answered

I want to print on satin ribbon, such as names, dates, etc. I cannot find a way to do this, by hand or on my inkjet printer without the ink "bleeding" or fuzzing. A ribbon printing machine, of which I have found 1, is way out of my price range for grandchildren gifts.


Seems long time ago but did you find a good solution?

I have had INCREDIBLE success with rub-on letters! You have to use very satiny ribbon, but it works and looks printed on! Not sure how to make it permanent, however, so I'd experiment with spray sealants. Good luck and let me know what sealant works for your project. Don't forget to post pictures, too!

Silkscreening would work.
