Hobby Lobby Wristbands or Wristband Resources™

There are a lot of different wristband vendors, and I mean a lot! You can purchase wristbands online, in a retail setting—heck, you can even order them out of a catalog like in the old days. However, each vendor has something new to offer. If you go to a physical store, you can see and feel the physical product before you buy. To some consumers, this is very valuable. At the same time, you will likely find more variety when you shop online. This article will discuss the pros and cons of buying both Hobby Lobby wristbands and wristbands from Wristband Resources™.

Hobby Lobby Wristbands

Hobby Lobby is a retail organization that specializes in selling materials for arts and crafts, as well as party and home supplies. For this reason, people planning events often turn to them for the items they need to make their event great, including paper wristbands. When it comes to buying wristbands specifically, Hobby Lobby offers a very limited selection. At the time this article was published, they offer a 100-count variety pack of single-colored bands for $7.99. This might be an appealing option for situations where design and price are not important buying factors, but immediacy is.

When you buy wristbands from Hobby Lobby, you can have your wristbands within minutes. Because wristbands are often an item that gets forgotten in the event-planning process, Hobby Lobby wristbands offer a quick solution. However, you will for sure pay for the convenience of having wristbands immediately. When you buy the 100-count variety pack, you are paying roughly 8 cents per band, which is actually quite a bit for a single-use piece of Tyvek that temporarily goes around one’s wrist. Other vendors, such as Wristband Resources™, can offer a much lower price at the same or better quality. For instance, a 500-count pack of paper wristbands from us costs $17.90. That is less than 4 cents per band—less than half the price!

While we might not offer the same immediate fulfillment that Hobby Lobby wristbands provide, we offer significantly lower prices and a greater variety. Best of all, we give you the tools to customize your wristbands so they are personalized to your event. You can add your own text, logos, graphics, and more to make your bands truly special. When you make your bands truly unique, you ensure that they cannot be counterfeit. It also allows you and your security team to quickly identify trespassers.

We also offer more material options beyond just paper wristbands. We also offer plastic, vinyl, cloth, and (for fundraisers) silicone wristbands. Each of these materials offers something different:

  • Plastic wristbands: highly durable wristbands that are perfect for indoor and outdoor extended use. Our secure-locking technology ensures that the band won’t come off until you are ready to remove it.
  • Vinyl wristbands: similar to plastic wristbands, these are highly-secure long-term-use wristbands that are designed for comfort. We offer vinyl wristbands that have tear-off tickets that can be used as vouchers for food and beverages.
  • Cloth wristbands: these wristbands are designed for comfort and are often used for admission at fairs and festivals. Many music events use cloth wristbands because they offer a classier look and can survive the elements.
  • Silicone wristbands: unlike the other options, silicone wristbands are often used as fashion accessories outside the event. When sold as a fundraising item, silicone wristbands offer high margins for the cause.
