Looked into buying real medal ribbons from this store but seeing that I needed around 30m, the costs came up to about £300, so I had a think again, obviously. Came to a conclusion that my ‘medals’ don’t need to be authentic medal ribbons, since the point now is not to highlight what the medals visually stand for, but to use the system and attitude to represent a new school of thought.

Quite a pity that the ribbons aren’t all the same width, and I’ve had to choose cheaper (i.e solid colour) options for larger categories.
