The first thing that strikes you about the ribbon at Michaels is the sheer variety. There are literally thousands of options, suitable for any craft, season, or theme imaginable. Paper, fabric, wired, sheer, satin, grosgrain – you name it, they’ve got it.

Whether you need ribbon for floral arranging, gift wrapping, scrapbooking, clothing embellishments, party decor, or any other project, you’ll find what you need in the ribbon aisles at Michaels.

Colors, Prints and More

Beyond the variety of ribbon types, there’s also a kaleidoscopic array of colors, prints, and patterns. Of course you’ll find all the basics, from solids to stripes, dots, and classic patterns like gingham and floral. But there are also plenty of fun, funky, and modern options too, like ombre, tie-dye, glitter, holographic, and even glow in the dark ribbons!

Michaels also offers licensed ribbons featuring your favorite characters and themes. So if you’re looking for ribbon with Disney princesses, superheroes, unicorns, or trendy tropical motifs, they’ve got you covered. They even have college and professional sports team ribbons so you can craft with team spirit!

Holidays and Seasons

Part of what makes Michaels ribbon selection so special is that they carry options tailored to holidays, seasons, and timely themes. Around the major holidays you’ll find everything from traditional Christmas plaids and prints to trendy boho ribbons perfect for gift wrapping.

For other seasonal crafting there are sunny spring florals, nautical themes for summer, and autumnal maple leaves, pumpkins, and more. You can always find ribbon to coordinate with the current season or occasion. Even smaller occasions are represented in the ribbon aisles, so you can easily locate patriotic ribbons for the 4th of July, love and heart motifs for Valentine’s Day, and colors to match a wedding palette.

Satin, Grosgrain, and Beyond

For crafters and DIYers, it’s important to find not just pretty ribbons, but ones suitable for your particular project. Michaels offers all the ribbon varieties to meet specialized needs, like satin ribbon for luxurious hair bows, stiff grosgrain for trims, or wired ribbon for decorative floral edges.

Some other ribbon types found at Michaels include:

  • Sheer Ribbons – Gorgeous for wrapping gifts or floral projects, available in diverse colors and patterns.
  • Burlap – Rustic country appeal, perfect for wreaths, other farmhouse decor.

Yardage and Pre-cut Lengths

Another great thing about Michaels ribbon is that you have the choice between buying it by the yard or in pre-cut lengths. This allows you to purchase precisely the amount you need.

For big projects like upholstery, headbands, or apparel, you’ll want to choose from the wide selection of ribbons available by the yard. This lets you customize the exact ribbon lengths your project requires.

For smaller uses, like gift wrapping or handmade flowers, the pre-cut ribbon lengths offer convenience. You can quickly grab a multi-pack of 1 yard lengths in an array of colors and patterns. Michaels carries pre-cut ribbons in standard lengths like 1/2 yard, 1 yard, and 2 yards.

Affordable Quality

Given the enormous selection, you might worry that ribbon at Michaels comes with a premium price. Thankfully that’s not the case – their everyday ribbon prices are quite affordable for the quality. By sticking to sales, coupons, and buying in bulk when possible, you can keep costs down even further.

Consider signing up for the Michaels rewards program to receive coupons and notifications about sales. And if you have a big project in mind, watch for Michaels sales on spools of ribbon by the yard, where you can stock up.

On the whole, Michaels ribbons are a great value when you consider the diversity of premium options, especially compared to small specialty shops. Plus if you’re ever unsatisfied with a ribbon purchase, just keep your receipt and you can do an easy return or exchange.

While Michaels does offer ribbon selections online, there’s something even more magical about exploring the ribbon aisles in person. Seeing and feeling all the textures, patterns, and colors allows you to make the best selection.

The staff at Michaels stores are always happy to help you find the perfect ribbons for your needs. Don’t be shy to ask for assistance locating specific ribbon types, getting creative ideas, or reaching those hard-to-grab rolls on high shelves!

Trying out samples in-store helps guarantee you’ll love your ribbon purchase. You can hold different ribbons side by side to compare sheens, test wired ribbons to shape bows, or match colors to a paint swatch or garment.

Ribbon Galore Online

For convenience, Michaels does offer their full spectrum of ribbon choices online too. Browsing online gives you the ability to filter ribbons in different ways, like by color, material, width, or theme. You can see multiple images of each ribbon style and read reviews from fellow crafters.

The online ribbon selection allows you to add unique options to your stash even if you don’t live near a Michaels store. However, one advantage of purchasing in person is getting to see and feel ribbons before buying. If texture or sheen is important, you may want to buy key ribbons at a local store.
