Motivational Wristbands – Create Your Own Inspirational Bracelets

In the last 10 years or so, silicone wristbands have found a home in sports and athletic training. As athletes begin to adopt motivational mantras and slogans, they want to have that message physically on them as they train. For most, a tattoo is a little too permanent. Simultaneously, a t-shirt or other clothing item might be a little too vocal, especially if the mantra has personal meaning. However, a motivational wristband is perfect as the message can be put on the band, which goes around the wrist making the message readable to the person wearing it.

Motivational Wristband Uses

There are many uses for motivational wristbands. For some, these are simply used by athletes as a source of inspiration. These “baller bands” are often worn by basketball players to motivate them and keep the sweat off their hands, thus making the ball easier to handle. However, motivation wristbands also go beyond just sports. For some, it is a way to show support for a cause. For instance, the words “strength” or “courage” printed on a pink silicone band might inspire a person to overcome breast cancer or support someone fighting breast cancer. It is also worth noting that they make excellent gifts for many occasions, as well as fundraising items.

Common Messages

Personal Mantras

Every athlete seems to have a mantra that inspires them and motivates them to continue to work hard at their craft. It is for this reason that motivational bracelets are popular amongst this group. We often receive orders for custom silicone wristbands that have text that reads No Pain, No Gain or Anything Is Possible, amongst others. We give athletes and non-athletes alike the tools to create rubber bracelets that inspire them.


Many people of faith derive motivation from their beliefs. For this reason, some of the most popular motivational wristbands are ones with Bible verses printed on the bands. Our customers can choose any passage or quote that is inspiring to them and always have it around their wrists. This allows the person wearing it to both remain motivated and share their beliefs with other people.


Some people don’t have a personal mantra or religious text that inspires them. In fact, some people are simply motivated by general positivity. A positive message, such as I Am Enough or Believe In Yourself, is enough to inspire some people.

Rubber Bracelet Styles


Debossed silicone wristbands are made with a laser engraver or mold. Your design is sunken into the surface of the silicone band and can be felt. On the other hand, embossed wristbands have the design raised from the surface of the wristband. Wristband Resources™ allows you to personalize your bands by choosing your font, text size, and up to four graphics.


Our printed silicone wristbands are made using silk-screen technology. The way it works is simple. You customize the bracelet to your liking and we print it over the top layer of the band, leaving a smooth, sleek texture.


Ink-injected wristbands combine debossing and printing to create a great wristband. First, we engrave your custom design into the wristband before it gets injected with long-lasting ink. This guarantees that your design will be protected from wearing over time.

Color Coated

Color-coated wristbands are two-toned and fully customizable. The customization gets 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.
