Rebuild, Repair or New?

We at UltraThin realize that new ribbons and medals can be an expensive proposition with the number of decorations that individuals receive and the frequency of new awards. Even with our reasonable prices these changes can amount to a fair amount of cash outlay over the period of a few months.

Because of this we offer, where possible, the ability to modify or repair current ribbon and medal sets. Obviously there are times when this is just impossible due to the age or condition of the set.

If you receive additional awards of a ribbon currently in your set we can update the devices in almost every case.
For device and/or attachment additions to current set:
# new
# new attachments Svc charge
per set
#of Sets Return
@ $.60 @ $.75
Select how many new devices or attachments you need on your current set, indicate the number of sets and return postage. Enclose the calculated amount either with a check, money order, or credit card, expiration date and CCV number. Send the ribbons and payment to us we will update and return them the day after they are received at our office.

The ability and cost effectiveness to add a ribbon or ribbons your set depends on a few factors.

  • Is the current set in good condition?
  • How many ribbons are in the current set?
  • Beginning from the lowest precedence and counting upward, which position will the new ribbon hold?
The position of the new ribbon in the set is counted from the lower right corner as you look at the ribbons and counting left and up. In this example then new ribbon is in position 9
