Ribbon Cutting Tips

Please keep the following ideas in mind when planning a ribbon cutting:

Promote your ribbon cutting event by making your own social media post before and after the celebration.

Who will be in the pictures? Some businesses take multiple photos with various groups of people before or after cutting the ribbon. Photos can include employees, family, business partners, board members, and ambassadors. 

The Chamber recommends scheduling your ribbon cutting on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for best attendance. 

Your ribbon cutting event is a great opportunity to bring people together and highlight your business! Who do you want to invite to your ribbon cutting? The Chamber will invite local media, state officials, local officials, Chamber ambassadors and the Chamber board. You can invite employees, family, friends, customers, other businesses and more.
