  1. Sumertime

    Wait a minute….when did it become the middle of June?  Is the summer flying by for anyone else?  We can’t believe the Summer Shows are right around the corner.  What happened to those lazy days of summer when we were kids? 

     Here at the office, we are busy putting finishing touches on our displays and getting ready to ship everything to the shows (who am I kidding, the warehouse guys are doing that, I am in the nice, cool office!). The point is it is getting done!

     Did you know we have a new supplement to pass out at the shows?  It contains all of our newest ribbons for 2011, great spring and holiday choices.  It also has our new Burlap ribbon.  Yes, we now have Wire Edge Burlap in 6 colors and 3 widths!

     We are so excited to see everyone at the shows this summer.  In Atlanta, we will be in Showroom 18-

  2. Christmas in Summer

    Around here we rarely live in the now.  We are always planning ahead and working at least a season ahead.  So right now, all we can think about is Halloween and Christmas!  We have some wonderful new Halloween and Christmas ribbons this year.

    Like our fun new Witches Head ribbon or our Worldly Merry Christmas Ribbon

  5. Fall is Here

    I know fall doesn't officially begin for a few more days, but today in Chicago is definitely a fall day. The weather makes us think of pumpkins, apples and corn mazes.  It also makes us think of Fall and Halloween ribbon. Do you have yours? We still have plenty in stock so it's not to late!

    We especially love our Deko Mesh for this time of year.  It reminds us of corn husks and spider webs.  It is a great, inexpensive way to dress up your shop, make wreaths or add some fluff to displays. It is also a great ribbon to sell in your store. Even the novice crafter will have no problem working with this fun and easy to use ribbon! So be sure to get your orders in today, the Deko Mesh won't last long!

    Stationery

     

    Another year of the National Stationery Show has passed and for Ampelco Ribbon Company, the show was a success! We met lots of wonderful new business owners and caught up with lots of our faithful followers! We love meeting everyone and seeing all of the creative ideas they have which use ribbon.  This show really brings our the creativiness in people and that's why we love it.  We saw a lot of wonderful things this year and, as it seems we do every year, we have been awestruck and what you are all doing with invitations, cards and packaging!

    We hope the show was a success for everyone! We are going to take some of the ideas we got and put them to use! Look in future entries to find out what we learned!!

  8. May Day

    Happy May Day to you!  What do you think of when you hear May Day? Two things come to mind for me, flowers and ribbon! My grandmother used to hang bouquets of flowers wrapped in beautiful ribbon on the door knobs of all her neighbors.  And when I was little, we used to make Maypoles out of yards of beautiful and colorful ribbon and then we would dance around and watch the ribbon wrap around the pole.

     

    Have you ever made a Maypole? Why not make your own this month.  Simply get a pole (a stick or even a dowel rod would do) and attach a variety of colorful ribbons (we can help with that!)  to the top of it with hot glue or even tape!  Then twirl around it and see the beautiful colors the variety of ribbons make!!

     

    Also when I think of May, I think of the National Stationery
