Just an FYI -- you can buy nearly any kind of ribbon and keep it from fraying.  I make TONS of hairbows for my daughter and to prevent them from fraying I just take a bit of fire (match, lighter, etc.) and just run it past the cut edge of the ribbon.  Don't leave it there for more than a second or so -- you'll see it start to melt a bit and THAT'S exactly what you want.  Once the edges are just the tiniest bit melted it'll never run.  Your goal is to get all the free strands of material to join one another.  If done correctly it's not even noticeable -- remember, I do this on HAIR bows -- so if you saw it burnt ends would ruin the bow!   Smiley

For those of us with bad habits  Undecided a cigarette works just as well.

You'd probably want to buy some sort of sealant.  It's just printer ink which (as we all know) runs when in contact with water when on paper (so why would fabric be any different?).  I would suggest clear-coating it with something. Cheesy

WOW
what a super idea
and another way to stop ribbon fraying, is to put clear nail polish in the ends of it, and it sort of glues all the fibres together.
but i think melting it works better

One day whilst I was walkin'
a-walkin' through the park
a hickory caught my eye
with the most attractive bark
nervous, i approached it
eyeing branch to root
anxious, can't believe it
THIS TREE IS FUCKING NUDE!!!!

so...
take off all your clothes and
find a tree to fuck and
wrap your legs

Another way to keep the ribbon from fraying is to do your cutting with a pinking shear or a decorative sissor like the ones used for scrapbooking. Also, white glue (the kind that says "washable" on the label) watered down half and half and applied with a tooth pick or small brush to the cut ends will keep them from fraying. I have tried all these methods when I make miniature doll clothing. Those tiny pattern pieces fray badly if you don't treat the cut ends in one of those ways. They all work pretty well.
