Frequently Asked Questions


Are these outdoor Christmas bows?

Yes, unless otherwise specified all our Christmas bows are made to be used indoors or outdoors

Are Handmade Bows Waterproof & Weatherproof?

Yes. Handmade Bows are made using the finest waterproof ribbon available in the USA.  

Yes. Handmade Bows are designed to be weatherproof. Meaning they are hand made using a design that withstands harsh winter conditions, wind, rain, hail, etc. Some of the ribbon used is not 100% "weatherproof" only because it may fade in the sun. The fading from the UV rays is a new issue we have infrequently experienced, but one worth noting. The red velvet gold wired edge ribbon has not faded in the sun in our experience. If you have any concerns, please contact us, we would be happy to chat with you.

How long will it take to make my Handmade bows?

Depending upon the size of your order and time of year you are ordering. During the holiday season you can expect your bows to ship within 1 to 3 days. Slower times of year will take longer. If you are in a rush or have a specific date by when you need your bows, contact us. We will do our best to accommodate.

Can I place custom orders of Handmade Bows?

YES! We love custom orders. Call or email us with all the details we would be happy to work with you. If we can do it, we will.

Do you sell to wholesaler, retailers, other manufacturers?

Yes! Call us to discuss how we can work together. We can make bows for any reason or any season. The Handmade Bow has decades of experience providing bows to retailers, packaging companies, professional decorators, municipalities, wholesalers, distributors, affiliates, etc... all over the USA.

Are the colors exactly as displayed on web?

No. Each individual monitor, mobile device, digital camera, will portray colors according to it's manual setting. If you would like to see the exact color of the ribbon being used, please contact us and we will discuss how you can do this.
