Silicone wristbands are the perfect giveaway item. They are affordable and safe, and can colorfully display a message on a unique advertising space: wrists! Also known as rubber bracelets, wristbands are most often used to promote a business and help with branding, but there are countless other uses. Many nonprofit organizations use wristbands to raise awareness or help promote a cause. The Susan B. Komen Foundation uses pink bracelets with short, but meaningful messages like “Hope” and “Faith” to raise awareness of breast cancer. Sales of wristbands like these also raise huge sums of money for cancer research.
Our customers use wristbands for birthday parties, graduations, tradeshows, and even for memorials and remembrance. During summer months we see neighborhoods use custom debossed bands as pool tag passes. Every winter we see bracelets being used as stocking stuffers; kids love colorful bands with their names or favorite sports teams engraved into them. Wristbands are used in political campaigns, school clubs, and religious groups. They can be practical tools, as well as symbolic showpieces. The possibilities are truly endless, and their popularity is always increasing. Celebrities like Lady Gaga and Lance Armstrong have started their own wristband campaigns. The WristStrong campaign by Stephen Colbert (one of our favorite customers) even sent a wristband to space! Like we said, the possibilities are truly endless.
Below are a few of the major uses for personalized wristbands.
Corporate Trade Shows – For corporate shows and company giveaways we suggest printed silicone wristbands, ink Injected wristbands, or color embossed wristbands. These wristband styles have the greatest amount of contrast between the band and your logo. This means your message stands out and is a more effective marketing tool.
School Organizations – The screen printed and debossed wristbands are the most economical options. If you’re short on time, there is always a good deal on rush production for screen printed wristbands.
Political Campaigning – Using silicone wristbands for campaigning is becoming increasingly popular. The most effective strategy is to create a short and easy to remember slogan for your campaign. After you’ve come up with a good message, let the wristbands do their job.
Birthday Parties – The debossed wristbands are the most inexpensive option at the lower quantity levels and might be the most effective wristbands if you’re on a smaller budget. Wristbands are the perfect goody bag stuffer and are always a hit with the kids.
Memorials – Many of our customers order personalized wristbands for memorials and remembrance. Wristbands are a great way to honor loved ones and to commemorate their lives.
Charitable Causes – Wristbands are very popular with charitable organizations. Their success comes from the fact that people love to show their solidarity and commitment towards a cause in an easy and consistent way. It is difficult to wear a cancer awareness or “Support Our Troops” t-shirt every day, but a wristband can represent the same level of support easily and effectively.
Event Wristbands – Our Tyvek and vinyl wristbands are the most popular type of band used for crowd control and ticketing purposes at parties, clubs, festivals and other larger events. Tyvk wristbands are cost-effective, delivered fast and easy to use.
