Posted by ribbonmart on September 20th, 2019
1) by material
Nylon / Tedron / PP polypropylene / Acrylic / cotton / polyester / gold and silver onions / spandex / light wire / rayon, etc.
The distinction between nylon and PP ribbon: Generally, the nylon ribbon is woven and dyed first, so the color of the yarn after splitting will be the color of the white yarn due to uneven dyeing, and the PP ribbon will first dye the yarn and then weave it. There is a phenomenon that the yarn is white; in contrast, the nylon ribbon is more glossy and softer than the PP ribbon; it can also be distinguished by the chemical reaction of burning; the nylon ribbon is generally more expensive than the PP ribbon.
Tedron ribbon is soft and dull
Acrylic ribbon consists of two materials: Tedron and cotton.
The price of cotton ribbon is generally higher.
2) According to the weaving method
Three types of plain, twill, satin and miscellaneous. (plain / small ripple / twill / safety ribbon / pit pattern / bead pattern / jacquard and other PP ribbon can be divided into 900D/1200D/1600D according to the thickness of the yarn; at the same time we should pay attention to the thickness of the ribbon, the thickness also determines its unit price and toughness degree.)
3) According to the nature of use
Garment-like ribbon, shoe-like ribbon, luggage-like ribbon, security-like ribbon, and other special ribbon.
4) According to the characteristics of the ribbon itself

5) by process
Mainly for the woven ribbon and knitted ribbon two categories. The ribbon, especially the jacquard ribbon, is somewhat similar to the fabric labeling process, but the warp labeling warp is fixed and the weft yarn is used to express the pattern; while the ribbon basic weft yarn is fixed, the warp yarn is used to express the pattern, and the small machine is used, each time the plate is produced and produced. It takes a long time to thread and adjust the machine, and the efficiency is relatively low. But you can create a wide variety of dazzling products that don't always have the same faces as cloth labels. The main function of the ribbon is decorative and functional. Such as popular cell phone straps and so on. After the tape is woven, it is also possible to silk screen various characters/patterns, which is generally cheaper than directly weaving the text patterns.
The woven ribbon is mainly divided into two categories: shuttleless ribbon and shuttle ribbon. Currently, the shuttleless ribbon on the market is more common than the woven ribbon.
