Welcome to the Trade Tartan Ribbon website

Welcome. If you are a trade customer please register/ login here.?

 Welcome to trade-tartan-ribbon.com

Please note this particular site is for bona fide trade customers only

If you are not a trade customer, please visit our main site, where you can enjoy hundreds more tartan ribbons, smaller top-up packs and all with FREE worldwide shipping - www.tartan-ribbon.com

New customer?  Please click the "APPLY" box top left to apply for your password.  You can then log in to see trade prices and place orders


Big changes are on their way! 

We're working on a brand new tartan-ribbon.com website, based around the same amazing platform design as our main website cake-stuff.com

The new site will be much faster and simpler to use, with easier navigation, clearer pictures and many more options than we can currently offer here on our dear old tartan ribbon site

Over the next few months while all this work takes place, we'll be slowly transferring our tartan ribbon to the Cake Stuff website, so why not take a look . . .


Remember that at the moment you'll see retail prices on that site - in future, when you log in as a Trade Customer you'll automatically see trade prices which will include VAT.  You'll also enjoy your trade discount on smaller 5m top-up packs and our Price Breaks mean even lower prices if you are buying 3, 4, 5 or more reels

There will be new tartan ribbons, bows and even a tartan ribbon Clearance Corner

Our prices have not been reviewed for nearly 7 years so although we're trying to keep prices as low as possible, there will be few small increases here and there but we hope these will be minimised by the extra savings we're building in for trade customers

Meantime, we'd suggest continuing to order here on trade-tartan-ribbon.com and watch for our email welcoming you to the new site


Welcome to trade-tartan-ribbon.com - a new site designed specifically for bona fide trade customers.

Tartan ribbon is very popular in a number of fields, so whether your business is highlandwear retailing, kilt hire, floristry, wedding cakes, greetings cards, clothing and fashion, art and craft supplies, or you're involved in product design, packaging and marketing, we hope you'll find this trade site full of great tartan ribbon, simple to navigate and easy to place orders.

The main difference between this trade site and our main retail site is that we've removed all the tartan history pages and additional information about tartans, clans etc. in order to make the site as straightforward as possible - we realise you're busy and simply want to place an order as quickly and safely as possible.

Trade-tartan-ribbon.com offers full reels of tartan ribbon only.  For smaller 5m top-up packs please use tartan-ribbon.com.

As is normal for a trade-only site, prices exclude VAT and shipping, both of which are calculated for you automatically at checkout.  Trade customers outside the European Union are not charged VAT.

There is NO minimum order, but a small premium is built in to the shipping price for very small orders to enable us to handle orders for as little as one reel, still at competitive trade prices.

Our tartan ribbon is woven to British Standards in polyester, with stitched edges, is colourfast and approved for use with edible items.  Other types of tartan ribbon (such as heat-sealed-edge taffeta) are clearly identified where they appear.

Please use the buttons on the left of the page to find your tartan ribbon, or enter the tartan name in the search box (top left) and let us show you what’s available, including the closest alternative ribbons to the tartan you’re looking for.

We are proud to be members of the Scottish Tartans Authority and all our tartan ribbon is authenticated by them.

Please note that not all tartans are available in all widths - as you browse the site you'll see which widths are available in each tartan.  We're happy to help with any questions but assume most trade customers are already familiar with the product, variations, quality etc.  If in any doubt just ask! :o)

We accept all major credit and debit cards through PayPal - the web's most secure and popular payment provider
