PIY (Print It Yourself) Ribbons announces its UK launch at Four Oaks Trade Show

The ribbon printing product offers UK retailers the opportunity to provide professional standard personalised wrapping ribbon at the point of sale (PoS).

Project manager Eamonn O'Connor said: "PIY Ribbons is the first personalised PoS ribbon system in the UK. In Holland retailers have found that letting customers print their own personalised ribbon gives real added value, helping to boost sales and providing excellent margins."

First launched in Holland, PIY Ribbons has been enjoying "substantial" growth in the florist, garden centre, gift, wedding and funeral sectors, where personalisation is a positive differentiator. 

The PIY Ribbon package starts at just £445 + VAT with additional printers £245 + VAT. The Starter-kit comes with a PoS printer, tablet and display stand. The tablet software enables retailers to choose messaging and set their logo to appear along with the consumers personalised message and images.
