I am attending PenguiCon this year for the second time and I had thought of making my own ribbons this time around. Sadly, I am a few days too late to make my order with the Ice Cream Team. Then it hit me: print some of my own in Atlanta and bring them up.

However, being a dunce lately due to over-schooling and over-working, I am having an attack of Teh Dumb. What type of shop do I need to go to for ribbons of my own? What specific item do I need to ask for? If someone could help me find my words, it would be greatly appreciated.

You're looking for an embossed ribbon. Places that do printing or make trophy-type awards may have an embosser, since everyone from the 4-H club to the Rotary occasionally hands out awards with embossed ribbons. Any printer *might* have one. Check their websites or their Yellow Pages ads.

This page has a list of some ribbon companies. I hope it's helpful.

The Pirates/Romans crew uses these guys, who can get it to you with a lot less lead time than the con can, for somewhat more money since you don't have the quantity discount and you're paying shipping:
