And remember - any rosettes or bars (such as ALTHEA) will need to be stitched into the ribbon *before* you stitch the top of the ribbon into place!
Good guide, not sure if I am brave enough to try it myself though. I read that no more than 2/3 of a ribbon should be covered on overlap but I do have a question. Is there a set width? I ask because I have 8 now and they overlap an awful lot, when my 9th is placed on this month they will overlap quite a lot and be a real pain to clean. So can I ask the medal mounter to make my medals wider or is this wrong?
well thats the first set of overlapped medals done , posted them on my FB page and it looks as tho things are gonna get very busy cheers for your exellent guide DC
4-5 quid a medal.

I've tried looking online for ribbon, but most places only sell by the metre. I'd rather buy a roll if I can, but the standard price is at least £50 a roll, which seems quite steep. Apart from the local Garrison tailor (not really an option as I'm on tour at the minute) does anyone know of a cheap place to get it?
