I will start by saying I spent $10 a box on these. So it’s not a huge deal but I guess you get what you paid for. I just expected these to be a little more… usable. I just want to take a minute to get the complaints off my chest and possibly warn others about what they could run into with these.
First thing I notice..
Here’s the left side of the invite:
Aaaaaaand, here’s the right:
They’re totally off-centered. All of them. With most the overlay is flush with the left side while there is a ton of space left on the right side.
Here are the lovely ribbons from box number 2 (I didn’t notice any issues w/ the ribbons in the first box). Not only are some of them ripped up like that but they all have one yellow/brown edge! I think it’s glue that was used to stop fraying but it’s like yellow! I’ve tried trimming the ends off but fabric ribbons can be a pain to trim so they come out looking more butchered than they did before :/
This is kind of minor, but I still wanted to point it out because it bothers me lol. I stacked all the overlays up after printing and noticed, none of the holes are in the same places! They don’t line up at all! I just don’t understand why they aren’t all hole punched the same.
Anyways, I was able to solve problem #1 by getting a single hole punch and putting an extra set of holes in the tops and sliding them over after getting the ribbon through. Not a huge deal. I don’t mind doing extra work to save money. But those damn ribbons. UGH. I’m stoked that I got them for cheap but I didn’t expect them to all be crooked with a box full of unusable ribbons. Grr.
