Unit Of Sale

The unit of sale is dependent upon the product. In most instances this is a single unit, but there are certain lines such as boxes, cards and trims which whilst priced individually are sold in a pack size. These items are shown with a Minimum Order Quantity [MOQ]. If the Minimum Order Quantity is greater than one, order quantities greater than the MOQ can vary. These may be in multiples of the MOQ or in ones, depending on the product. Our system will advise you during the ordering process if a minimum order quantity applies and you will have multiple opportunities to accept or decline ordering in those quantities.


Product pricing is not displayed until you Register and then sign on to our system. All pricing is in New Zealand dollars per Sell Unit excluding GST and delivery charges. We do not charge a premium for credit card payment.

Order Turnaround Objective

We will strive to despatch your order within one working day of order receipt. Some items do however need to be processed e.g. we cut some of our satins to order, which means there is a 2-3 day lead-time. In the event that we are unable to ship within 4 days we will contact you. Courier leadtimes must be added to our order turnaround objective to determine your estimated order arrival date.

Out of Stock Lines

If a product is currently out of stock, we will endeavour to display this status via our website i.e. you will be able to view but be unable to order the product. Due to customer ordering load and website up-dating leadtimes, from time to time we may sell out of a product and may not have had time to update the website. Our commitment to you is that we can ship 99% of items ex-stock within our Order Turnaround objective.


We do not offer FREE samples.


We endeavour to describe colours accurately and to ensure the photographs we display are realistic. In the case of our fabric ribbon, we have cross-referenced colour names to Wikipedia to create some consistency in our naming convention. This also enables you to look up colours independently. We will do our utmost to ensure we adhere to this convention but because of the large number of ribbons involved cannot guarantee our naming will be error free. The photographs we display will give an alternative colour reference. Refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_colors for a definition and colour samples.

In the case of non-ribbon product we endeavour to use generally accepted colour descriptions.

Please note the accuracy with which colours are displayed on your computer screen is a function of many variables including your screen resolution and the number of colours your graphics card is set to display.

As we purchase ribbons in bulk we cannot guarantee that the colours from one batch to the next will be 100% consistent. If there is a colour variation we will do our utmost to ensure this is reflected in the colour description and the displayed photograph. If you order multiple rolls of ribbon of the same colour, we will ensure they are all from the same batch.


We use the Westpac Payment Express portal for the processing of credit card payments. Payment Express is a best practice system used by the major NZ trading banks to provide a secure way of making internet credit card payments. Your payment details are not disclosed to us by Payment Express, therefore your financial confidentiality is protected.

Delivery Method, Insured Value & Tracking

The delivery charge for your order is based on the weight of product being shipped, the number of boxes required and your delivery location. Areas defined as "rural" by our freight company [not NZPO] are subject to a rural surcharge. This is one of the reasons we ask you to register so we can present you with an accurate delivery charge. We will not post orders. All shipments are sent via courier as it is our means of ensuring goods are insured plus it gives us the ability to track orders and obtain proof of delivery should that be required. All goods are fully insured to your door.

In the event of non or damaged delivery, items will be resent Free of Charge or a full credit given [at our discretion] once we have verified damage/non-delivery with our courier company.


All prices quoted are GST exclusive. The GST inclusive delivered value of an order can be viewed at any time by Viewing Your Shopping Cart.

Returns & Credit Policy

Goods can be returned "no questions asked" within seven days of delivery to you provided they are returned at your expense, unused and if opened are repackaged in a new state.

If we have sent you the incorrect product or the product is damaged upon arrival, we will, at our option credit the full amount of the damaged item or replace it with the equivalent new item. We will pay for the return freight on any incorrectly or damaged supplied product.

We will not accept returned used, damaged or partially used goods where they are sold in a pack size or Minimum Order Quantity.

In the event goods are returned not in pristine state we reserve the right to charge you a restocking fee commensurate with the state of the returned product starting with a minimum of 15% of the purchase price.

Looking for Product

Our website is designed to enable you to find the product you're looking for via three easy-to-use methods. You can select the option which best suits the way you wish to shop. The options are:

  • PRODUCT TYPE buttons to the left of the Home page e.g. Ribbon, Giftwrap, Boxes etc. By selecting one of these buttons you will be presented with a list of available "type" options within the general product category e.g. Grosgrain Ribbon, Square Boxes, Carry Bags etc. Use this method where there is one criteria which is of primary importance to you and you wish to view and select from the available options.
  • SHOP FOR PACKAGING option on the menu bar. This graphic displays product Categories and in turn Sub-categories which can be quite different from the PRODUCT TYPE selections above. Categories could be Boxes with sub-categories Jewellery, Display, Apparel, Candy, Gift Baskets etc.
  • FINDA Toolbar - This is your most powerful selection tool. The FINDA toolbar was designed by Ribbon N Blues and enables you to filter your product selection down to the minutest detail. If you are after a red flip lid box which is 100mm*100mm*100mm you can search for it via the FINDA tool bar. Just be aware - the more specific you are with your FINDA request the fewer the number of products which will meet your requirements. We may not have an item which meets your exact stipulation in which case you will receive a "No Products Found" result. If you don't get the result you need, just remove one of your selection criteria and try again. This should present you with a greater selection of available options.

The FINDA toolbar displays at the top and bottom of all screens once you have made a primary product selection. Where possible, it should also be populated with the selection options which reflect the result being displayed. If you change one or more of the FINDA drop list options and press the FIND NOW button again, this will re-search the ribbon database based on your amended set of criteria. If you wish to start afresh select the Clear button.

Under the FINDA toolbar you will see tick boxes. If you tick one or more of these the results of your query will be sorted in that order e.g. if you tick under the "width" FINDA toolbar field, the results will be presented in ascending width order.
