The Hidden Gem of Wristbands

When it comes to ordering wristbands, roughly 80% of consumers are looking to buy Tyvek® bands. Often referred to as “paper wristbands”, Tyvek® has a lightweight feel and almost paper-like appearance. This style is very strong and near impossible to break, making it the most recognized wristband on the market.

However, wristbands made from plastic and vinyl are also popular varieties because they’re heavy-duty and last for days or weeks. But if reusability is a priority, that’s when the rubber-like bracelets ‘Livestrong’ made famous come in handy. Otherwise known as silicone wristbands, these are a prime choice for those seeking a durable option that can be worn time and time again.

Aside from our Tyvek®, plastic, and vinyl wristbands, there’s one style that often gets lost in the mix. Cloth wristbands are a style that many have seen but don’t know much about. As your resident wristband experts, we’re here to educate you on all the advantages this wristband has to offer.

The True Value of Cloth Wristbands

Objectively speaking, there are 3 main benefits cloth wristbands provide best:

  • Most Comfortable Fit
    • Every cloth band we supply is fabricated from soft, waterproof, polyester thread. The smooth, lightweight material means no sharp or rough edges rubbing against the wrist.
  • Longest Wear and Use
    • Cloth bands are stretch, tear, and shrink resistant. The fabric is impermeable to rain, heat, and certain chemicals, giving them the power to withstand any test of time (hours, days, weeks, even years).
  • Quick and Easy Application
    • With a cloth bracelet, you don’t have to spend the time lining up the wristband with die-cut adhesive, or snap closure with eyelet. Simply slide the cloth band over the wrist and move the beaded clasp upwards to get a snug and secure fit in under 2 seconds.

Additionally, we offer various personalization options intended to further exceed your expectations:

  • Full-Color Customization
    • Sublimated: also known as printed, sublimated cloth bands have a sleek finish and may feature any quantity of ink colors. These are perfect for intricate/photographic imagery.
    • Woven: the desired design is woven into the band creating a very natural fabric feel. Woven bands can feature up to 8 Pantone colors per unit, including bright neons.


  • Various Closure Types
    • Adjustable closure: allows you to tighten and loosen the wristband, giving you the flexibility to remove the band and reapply whenever you so choose.
    • Locking Closure: sliding bead that features small “teeth” on the interior; once pushed upwards to tighten the band around the wrist, the bead’s teeth sink into to the cloth and will not shift downward again.
