Calling all crafters, designers and even brides-to-be! You now have an easy way to create and print professional-looking ribbon designs for unique gift wrap, party favors, centerpieces, and more. I love the chance to personalize projects, especially if they’re gifts. I recently got to play with the new Epson® LabelWorks™ Printable Ribbon Kit for review. Not only is it easy to use but it provides opportunity for nearly endless design possibilities! Be sure to check out the video at the end for a creative ribbon craft idea.
The kit includes the portable LabelWorks LW-300 label printer and two satin ribbon cartridges. I love that they come in a convenient carrying case. Epson offers a variety of colors, fonts, symbols, and frames to customize your personalized craft or memorable keepsakes.
Ribbon Decorating Ideas:
- party favors (weddings, bridal/baby showers, anniversaries, etc)
- gift bags (birthdays, business events)
- holiday ornaments
- crafts, and more
“The creative design possibilities are nearly endless with the LabelWorks Printable Ribbon Kit,” said Anna Jen, director of new business development, Epson America, Inc. “You don’t need to be a craft specialist to print professional-looking ribbon designs. This kit gives anyone the opportunity to charm family and friends with colorful, unique gift wrap, customized bookmarks, dinner table centerpieces, and so much more.”
I used the Epson® LabelWorks™ Printable Ribbon Kit to decorate my baby loss memory boxes. Some of the boxes I use are simple and I like to decorate them for parents grieving the loss of their baby. I printed the words “Always in our hearts” on a beautiful cream ribbon and attached it to just the cover (hiding the scrapbook adhesive on the inside of the lid) so the ribbon can stay attached to this box as decoration. I was excited to find the perfect little graphic with three hearts to place before and after my text. I loved that I could chose a font (I’m a graphic designer after all) as well as a graphic or border. I could adjust the font size and placement as well. I did have to read the directions to make sure I was creating the graphics how I wanted to but they were easy to read and understand. Trimming the ribbon was a breeze with their green cutting button. I’m excited to order some other Epson cartridges to try other ribbon and tape labels.
With a rainbow of optional ribbon colors to choose from, and the ability to store up to 30 favorite ribbon designs, event hosts can easily match themes and customize décor, adding the extra style that will impress guests. Beyond ribbon printing, the versatile LabelWorks LW-300 is compatible with various tapes in traditional colors, as well as specialty colors and textures such as fluorescent, pearlized, plaid, glow-in-the-dark, and iron-on. It also offers a variety of fonts, styles, symbols, and frames, taking creative labeling and projects to a new level.
I love this modern spin on a message in a bottle, HGTV home style expert and prop stylist, Emily Henderson uses the Epson® LabelWorks™ Printable Ribbon Kit, balloons, holders and sticks to make a creative, personalized gift for any occasion. What a special, personalized gift idea! This would be fun to do for kids on a special day as well. Be sure to watch Emily’s latest video, “How To Make Surprise Poppers.”
