Hi, i have just searched google for the serach term "ribbon printing machine" and there are a few to choose from. They don't look cheap but easy to get hold of.

Hope this helps
Christian.

These machines are really expensive! Have you tried using the oasis and trifloa gold adhesive letters, also Club Green has started a range of ribbons printed with a diamonte like finish, but the wording on these is limited I know they do happy birthday, congratulations and a special boy/girl.

They are Expensive

Our local wholesaler has one and just charges people so much per letter.

the machine itself looks real small so it should sit near a pc no problem, My nearest wholesale is over 100 mile round trip, last time I went they didnt have one but it wouldnt be worth the travelling costs to get there, and pre printed are no good to me as I need to be able to totally personalise the poly ribbon for balloon and party decorating.
I have now had one model tested with the ribbon I want to use and it didnt turn out well, just got hold of a second hand different make one off e bay thats apparantly supposed to work with the poly ribbon, just hope it does its on its way to me now

you can use a receipt printer and your PC. you need wax resin printer ribbon
I use a zebra printer, its a bit fiddely but you can print any size and font or images. saves a lot of mony.

ages ago an oasis rep told that they were going to do one. It might be worth looking on their site. Check out your old florist and wholesale buyer mags I think there was one advertised in one of them.

Hi Limara

We have a printing machine and although it was expensive, it has been worth the money. It only prints in gold but it is a stand alone printer with a keyboard. You can print any message you like and you can chose your font and size. because it only prints in Gold it does look better on some of the darker ribbons. Looks great with a message like " happy 21st Julie" on a bouquet. Oh, and the gold ink ribbon lasts for ages!!
