    Does it have to be a marker or could you possibly use maybe fabric paints? A very thin line of fabric paint to write the names just a thought.

    I think you'll find that any marker other than a paint pen is going to bleed, at least in my experience.

    Yes, all that I tried bled.... fine point sharpie, paint pen sharpie, scrapbook pen, fabric marker, paint... all bled. BUT when I used hairspray to the ribbon, no bleeding :) very happy as I didnt want puffy paint (didnt even try it). Now to get about 30 names written for my breast cancer walk next week.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I do appreciate it!
