Has anyone engraved ribbon before?
Oddly enough, I can’t remember any mention of that here, even though when I think about it, I could come up with a lot of good reasons for trying it!
I haven’t done ribbon, but I have cut nylon webbing. Not that it’s the same at all, but if the ribbon is nylon, it could kinda sorta relate, maybe a little. I think it’d be kinda tough and I don’t think nylon ribbon would engrave, but other material might. Give it a try and let us know!
You’d probably be best off starting with dark-colored ribbon as a light engrave would likely bleach out the pigment and leave behind white writing. It’s been done before with several types of fabric, including recently on this most excellent apron: Duck Cloth Canvas etching
Oh that is awesome! I love how the lettering came out white.
I’ve seen companies that create wording straight on the ribbon in the past but I was not sure if it was done with lasers or how it was done. Good to know.
