Several years ago, when I was camporee director, we made our own ribbons
by silk screening the patch design (in two colors) on 3-inch wide ribbon.
A local trophy company made the screens for us from camera ready copy I used
to prepare the brochures (just reduced the size). When I went to pick them
up they offered me fresh ink and a new squeegie and wouldn't let me pay for
any of it. For the future, I would buy premade blank ribbons. Sewing our
own was a hassle that we really should have avoided.
The explorer groups helping staff the camporee printed the ribbons at the
camporee as a demonstration. They also printed a few of their own t-shirts.
It was such a hit that it was planned as a part of the next camporee. I left
before it was implemented but understand that it went well and scouts went
home with a camporee t-shirt that they had made.
