    Lol, I love it!

    Where else will you find pictures of old printing presses followed by dart frogs?

    It seems like you could just print on the ribbon material like... with a printer.

    Well... there's this one.

    http://www.elsen-machinery.be/ribbon_printers.html

    Lol, to me a ribbon is a ribbon but maybe you're looking for something different.

    For each 12 inch ribbon you want that's 3 second and I think 500 ribbons would take like 25 minutes.

    It says it works with 100% silk ribbon, but that doesn't mean it wont print on other ribbon materials such as the popular.... woven ribbon fiber.

    Lol, no I meant any printer. I didn't know there was a difference between printers until I looked up "ribbon printer" lol

    Wonder how much the people who sponsor Red Ribbon Week would charge lol.

    A long time ago (~1980) I worked for an Easter Seals sheltered workshop and we had one ancient and one old press with a couple guys who could operate them. One of the guys left for a better paying job at an insurance company (a job probably out-sourced long ago). He operated a sleeker press there, surrounded by lots of others doing the same, but felt more like a cog than the craftsman he used to be. Not many people get to do what you do anymore.
