Ribbon Station Services

Our goal is to enhance your ALA ribbon experience. We offer several services as well as general advice to help achieve this goal.

Ribbon Exclusives

Over 40 exclusive ribbons available through donations and activities! See one of our staff for opportunities in earning ribbons.

Ribbon Wonder Trade

Drop off a ribbon to get a completely random ribbon in exchange! Wonder Trade may take up to a few hours to find you a trading partner, so continue your ribbon hunt while you wait. Just don’t forget to come back for your new ribbon!

Ribbon Trading

If you like trading ribbons, a designated trading space will be provided at the Ribbon Station throughout the weekend. You may even get an exclusive ribbon or two!

Ribbon Games

Are you struggling to find ribbons? Fear not! Try our Gachapon, Plinko board, or Prize Wheel and get random ribbons. Donations to the games will be rewarded with special ribbons in exchange.

Ribbon Repair

Never fear rain or gravity again! We offer a ribbon repair and sewing services that will prevent your ribbons from falling off your ever-growing chain.

Ribbon Making

Didn’t bring your own ribbons to the show? Look no further than the Ribbon Station! Come through and ask us about on-the-spot ribbon making by one of our experienced staff!

Ribbon Advice

The Ribbon Station workers are experienced ribbon hunters. Feel free to ask any ribbon questions you may have, we will do our best to answer and send you in the right direction!
