Custom Wristbands, No Minimum – Silicone, Plastic, and Vinyl

Here at Wristband Resources™, we are here to support you as you put on your next event. Whether you are hosting thousands of guests or just a few colleagues, we have your back. We give you the tools and resources to design the perfect wristbands for your next gathering, event, or fundraiser. In this article, we will discuss the different wristband materials you can choose from as well as instructions for designing the perfect custom wristband.

Silicone Wristbands (Rubber Bracelets)

Silicone wristbands are very versatile in terms of use. Many organizations use these as fundraising items. Others use them as promotional items for their business. We can produce these in as low as one business day. Before you order, it is important to know that there are multiple types of silicone wristbands.

Debossed and Embossed Silicone Wristbands

These silicone bracelets have text and images engraved into the band. Embossed wristbands are quite the opposite. They have the design raised from the surface of the band.

Printed Silicone Wristbands

Printed wristbands are created using silk-screen technology. Text and images are printed over the top layer of the band, leaving a silky-smooth texture.


Ink-Injected Silicone Wristbands

These wristbands are created by first embossing the silicone band before filling the engraved area with ink. Ink-injected wristbands are very durable and typically last a long time.

Color-Coated Silicone Wristbands

This style of silicone wristband is two-toned and offers greater personalization capabilities. First, your text and images get etched into the exterior layer of the band before being filled with ink matching the interior color of the band. This design displays the text more vividly and adds an artistic touch.

Plastic Wristbands

Custom plastic wristbands are perfect for events that last longer periods (3-7 days). When you customize plastic wristbands, you can be sure that nobody is entering your event that shouldn’t be. Despite being highly durable and waterproof, they are also cost-effective. There is no minimum on the number of packs you can buy. A pack of 500 standard wristbands costs less than fifty dollars, not including the customization fee. The more packs of 500 you purchase, the less you pay per unit. Here are some of the different types of plastic wristbands.

Holographic Plastic Wristbands

These plastic wristbands offer an eye-catching metallic design that really stands out. We offer regular and star holographic patterns.


Plastic Voucher Wristbands

Having a raffle at your next event? Will food and beverages be provided? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then plastic voucher wristbands might be the right choice for your next gathering. These wristbands allow you to charge more upfront, control alcohol consumption, and reduce fraud.

Wide Plastic Wristbands

Wide plastic bracelets give you a wider printable area while the strap of the band is the same as the standard. This makes them easy to apply and comfortable to wear.

Vinyl Wristbands

Vinyl wristbands are the most durable wristbands we offer. Made from a three-layer construction, these wristbands can last up to two weeks and are great for outdoor use. Some of the most popular uses for vinyl are amusement parks, campgrounds, resorts, and waterparks. A pack of 500 vinyl wristbands costs a little over fifty dollars, not including the customization fee. We offer wide, narrow, and regular band sizes. Like plastic, we also offer custom vinyl voucher wristbands.


Designing the Perfect Custom Silicone Wristband

The best thing about getting your silicone wristbands through Wristband Resources is that you are in full control of the customization. First things first, select the type of band you would like to order, as well as the band size. We offer bands as small as ¼ inch to as large as 2 inches.

Next, select your preferred color. We offer solid colors as well as segmented and swirl designs. Once you have your color selected, it is time to design your band. You can add text in two different places on the band and up to four graphics.

Lastly, simply select any extras that might interest you and complete the checkout process. Easy as cake!

Designing the Perfect Plastic or Vinyl Wristband

Step One: Select Preview Colors

These preview colors are simply to help you visualize your amazing design. You will select colors and quantities in a later step. Select your band color as well as your imprint (font) color. When you are done, click Next Step.

Step Two: Add Text

To begin, click Add New Text. From here, you can experiment with different fonts and font sizes. Keep in mind that you can add more than one text box by selecting Add New Text again. Feel free to play around with this until you create the perfect design. Be sure to check your spelling. Our machines cannot proofread for you and will print whatever is given to them. When you are ready, click Next Step.

Step Three: Add Graphics

To begin adding graphics, simply select Add Graphic. Then click Change under the box that reads No Logo. From there, you can choose clipart that we have free and available to you, or upload your own graphics or logo from your computer. Be sure to view all of our graphics by browsing through the dropdown menu. When you are done adding graphics to your wristband, click Next Step.

Step Four: Finalize the Design

Last call! Give your design one more proof. If it looks good, check the box that reads I approve this design. Then click Approve & Select Colors. Now you can select the exact colors and quantities you want for your next event. Once finished, add your designs to your cart and complete your order. We will get to work on creating your wristbands as fast as we can.
