PIY (Print It Yourself) Ribbons announces its UK launch at The Four Oaks Trade Show in Cheshire, England. This innovative ribbon printing product offers UK retailers the opportunity to provide professional standard personalised wrapping ribbon at the point of sale (PoS).

?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, ?said Eamonn O?Connor, Project Manager PIY Ribbons.

First launched in Holland, PIY Ribbons is the newest gift wrapping trend, 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 only ?245 + VAT. The Starter-kit comes with a specially designed PoS printer, tablet and display stand. A wide range of beautiful satin and thermal transfer ribbons provide personalised wrapping opportunities for every imaginable occasion. The tablet software enables retailers to choose messaging and set their logo to appear along with the consumers personalised message and images.
