Borderless explained October 21 2013

This is what uncut tailribbons look like.

Afterwards the white border around the flags is cut and trimmed by hand, but why?

Because modern cutting machines cannot trim with enough precision around a certain design. A border ("safety") is left around the design to give the cutting machine room for error. This border is not part of original tailribbon design. We here at TailRibbons hate it, so it must be removed, leaving nothing but the true artwork.
