(Did you mean a Typewriter Ribbon or the fanzine Ribbons?)

A beribboned Bruce Pelz at Magicon, 1992.

A ribbon is attached to a con badge to indicate rank, function or affiliation.

At conventions, attendees typically wear nametag badges. Some conventions provide members with ribbons to be attached to their badges, designating GoHs, program participants, etc. Clubs got in on the act, with their own custom ribbons. And then fans came up with all sorts of silly printed ribbons.

Multiple ribbons, running horizontally, can be attached, with the first ribbon attached directly to the bottom of the badge, and the next ribbon attached to the bottom of that ribbon to quite ridiculous lengths.
