Which Silicone Wristbands?

Which Silicone Wristbands

Silicone wristbands are a great way to promote your business, charity, message or cause. When compared to other forms of promotion, they are relatively inexpensive, especially if you buy in volume. But there are so many different types to choose from. How do you know which ones are right for your business?

All our wristbands can be customised. We can match any Pantone colour or mix of colours for the bands and the artwork. So if you have company colours or colours for a particular campaign, we can match them.

We can also add your choice of artwork. This could be a logo, some text or both. If you have a graphic that you would like to display, we can add this too.

Ask yourself the following questions, to determine which wristbands will work best for you.


Silicone Wristbands

1. What Are the Wristbands For?

What is the purpose of the wristbands? Our customers buy our bands for many reasons. For example:

  • To raise awareness (and possibly funds) for a cause
  • To promote a business or specific campaign
  • As complimentary gifts at an event or launch
  • To support a band
  • To show solidarity to a group, cause, issue
  • For organisational purposes

If your intention is to raise awareness of a cause, business or campaign, any of our customisable bands would be appropriate. The same is true if you’re intending to provide the bands as a gift. You just need to choose the right style.

If you’re selling the bands to show support for a band or festival, though any option will work, you may want to consider some of our longer-lasting bands. For example, our ebmossed, debossed or debossed with infill bands. These wristbands stamp the artwork and message into the rubber so that it is more durable. This is ideal if fans are wearing the bands continually. Printed wristbands look great but the print will fade over time.

In addition, our glow-in-the-dark wristbands are great for night-time events and dimly lit areas. As the name suggests, they glow in the dark.

2. How Long do they Need to Last?

Embossed and Debossed Wristbands

All of our wristbands are made from 100% silicone rubber. This makes them sturdy and durable. They are not prone to fraying or becoming brittle like bands made from powders. However, the artwork on the bands will not last forever. It will rub off over time.

As mentioned above, our debossed, debossed with infill and embossed wristbands tend to last longer. This is because the message is stamped into the bands. Our printed bands have a shorter shelf-life and as such are more suited to comps and launches.

3. How Long is the Message?

Interlinked Silicone Wristbands

You can fit a lot of text and information onto the bands. However, if you have slightly longer message then our interlinked bands are ideal. They combine two bands, providing you with twice the space for your message. You can also opt for a different colour for each band.

4. Need More Impact?

Wide and Multi-Coloured Bands

If you need a greater impact and really want your message to stand out, either our wide wristbands or our multi-coloured bands will get the job done. Our wide bands are 25mm in width, allowing more space to display your artwork. Our multi-coloured bands are made up of several different colours, thus making them more striking.

5. What About Bands for Organisational Use?

Plain Bands

If bands are needed for organisational purposes, we carry a large volume of plain bands in stock. We can also match your own colours. Our plain bands are frequently used to organise school meal times or for sports days. Some organisations use them to indicate different departments.
