Parts of Rosette Award Ribbons
Knowing the parts of an award rosette ribbon is important knowledge to have when it comes to designing your own custom rosette ribbons. Understanding the main parts will assist you when placing your order.
A basic rosette is made from pleated acetate ribbon which is fashioned into a circle and secured with a staple, stitch or glue. Rosettes which are fashioned to resemble a rose can be stacked into layers of different sizes called tiers. The stacking of the rosettes creates an eye-catching effect that is enhanced by the choices of color. The rosette may have embellishments such as points or loops. Points and loops can be single or layered as well.
The button is the center piece of the rosette and comes in cello or satin in different diameters depending on the ribbon. A custom logo or stock art graphics can be placed on the button. To enhance the design, we always recommend a custom image to promote an event. It adds the final touch to the rosette and helps hold the entire piece together.
The streamers are the “calling card” for the entire rosette ribbon. This is where the event and titles are declared and customized. Streamers can be customized with text, logos and other artistic images. And there are ribbons that have as few as one streamer up to nine streamers – sometimes more! Customized colors are chosen to match the theme of the rosette and button.
