Memorializing Service Members with Silicone Bracelets

Memorial Day is the day where we Americans remember and honor those who have died in military service. We celebrate with parades and by decorating the graves of our fallen soldiers. Some of us have picnics and spend time with friends and family. Others mourn lost loved ones. Regardless of how you spend your Memorial Day, make it more special and personalized experience with silicone bracelets.

Why Silicone Bracelets?

Personalized Celebration

Silicone bracelets are an excellent accessory to your Memorial Day celebration for a few reasons. For starters, they offer a way to personalize your celebration. If you are remembering a specific friend or loved one, you can customize a design to honor them. You can add their name—or any other custom text, for that matter—unique fonts, and your very own graphics.

Band Together

Memorial Day can be a trying time if you and your family have lost a loved one or close friend. Show your unity by wearing matching bracelets. We have no set minimum on the number of bracelets you can order so that you and your loved ones can support each other as you mourn and remember the ones you lost.

Raise Awareness

By wearing your memorial bracelets beyond Memorial Day, you can spark conversations about the individuals they represent, as well as other fallen soldiers. This helps keep the memory of these brave and wonderful people alive. You can also use these bracelets to raise awareness and show support for several nonprofits that support veterans and military families. These include:

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)

The WWP provides support programs to wounded veterans and their families, including mental and physical health programs and career counseling, so that they may have an easier time transitioning back to civilian life.

American Gold Star Mothers

This organization supports mothers who have lost a son or daughter while serving in the military. They offer an emotional support network of fellow mothers who have also lost a child, emotional support services, and outreach programs.

Fisher House Foundation

The Fisher House Foundation builds homes near VA medical centers so that families can stay close to their loved ones while they receive medical treatment.

Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)

TAPS offers counseling, peer support, and other resources to grieving loved ones of fallen service members. They also offer youth programs, peer mentorship, and suicide loss support.

National Military Family Association (NMFA)

NMFA help support the well-being of military families through scholarships, spouse programs, and advocacy efforts to help address the unique challenges these families face.

Raise Money

Nonprofit organizations like the ones listed above rely heavily on donations, volunteers, and fundraising. Silicone bracelets offer an excellent fundraising strategy because they are inexpensive. In fact, when purchased in bulk, they can be purchased for less than a dollar, but sold for five dollars or more! This large profit margin makes it each for these noble organizations to make a lot of money quickly. In fact, creating a custom design can add value and help boost sales!

Designing Fundraising Bracelets

Step One: Choose Your Style

We offer six different inscription styles so that you can make your bands perfect and unique for your event or celebration. The six different styles are as follows:

  • Printed - This inscription style is where the message/artwork is printed directly onto the exterior of the band. 
  • Debossed - The text/logos are pressed into the silicone, resulting in a “sunken in” effect. This inscription style does not include ink. 
  • Ink Injected - Recession of the letters/artwork into the silicone acts as a cradle for the ink that is injected. 
  • Color Coat – The customization is etched into the exterior layer of the band, then filled with an ink color matching the interior of the band.
  • Embossed – The text/graphics are raised on the wristband’s surface giving a 3-D, elevated design.
  • Embossed Printed – The raised personalization is printed with a single-color ink.

Step Two: Choose Your Band Size

We offer band sizes ranging from ¼” to 2”. While our most popular band size is our ½” width, a larger band will provide a greater area for your design. On the other hand, a smaller band size might be more comfortable. The choice is yours!

Step Three: Choose a Color(s)

We offer an abundance of different colors, and color patterns, such as swirl and segment designs. We also offer camouflage and red, white, and blue colored bands so that you can create the perfect bracelets! Select the color(s) and quantities you desire.

Step Four: Create Your Perfect Design

Our configurator allows you to add a total of sixty characters—thirty characters in the front, and another 30 characters in the back. You can also select from one of our many fonts and adjust the text size.

You can also add up to four graphics to your bands. Choose from any graphic in our huge library or upload your own!

Congratulations, you just designed the perfect bracelet!
