Walmart Wristbands or Wristband Resources™

Since the rise of e-commerce, retail locations have suffered. Sure, there is value to entering a store, seeing the product you wish to purchase, holding it in your hand, reading the packaging, etc. But brick-and-mortar stores cannot possibly match the variety of the world wide web. Furthermore, these stores cannot match the convenience of sitting on your sofa, browsing an online marketplace or e-commerce store, placing your order, and having somebody else bring it right to your door. Walmart has, in a way, mastered both brick-and-mortar and e-commerce. You can both shop in-store at over 5300 locations or browse their selection of products online. When it comes to buying wristbands for your next event, you have a lot of options. This article will compare the process of buying Walmart wristbands to other vendors.

Walmart Wristbands

Walmart is an enormous retail giant that has penetrated countless markets for goods, and even some services. When it comes to planning events, many organizers turn to retail locations for the supplies they need, including wristbands. Walmart offers more variety online than when you shop in-store. They carry primarily paper event wristbands, but also have a small selection of silicone and plastic wristbands. When you shop Walmart wristbands, you can expect fast delivery, even faster when you shop or pickup in store. You can expect fast delivery when you order directly from Walmart—other vendors have varying delivery times.

There are two drawbacks to ordering Walmart wristbands. For starters, you are limited by the selection of wristbands that they have available—there is no way to customize them to fit your event. Some of them come pre-designed, but most of them are single-colored. While there are some occasions where customization is not a big concern. However, for larger events and business outings, good branding can go a long way. The other drawback is price. Wristband Resources™, for example, offers a pack of 500 standard Tyvek wristbands for $17.90. The cost per unit here is less than four cents. The same wristbands sell in a pack of 100 at Walmart for $9.96. That’s almost ten cents per unit. This might not seem like a lot, but if you have thousands of guests coming to your event, it can really add up.

If immediate delivery is less important than having high-quality, fully-customizable wristbands, then you have come to the right place. Keep in mind that even though we cannot offer two-day shipping, we do offer fast production and quick shipping on all our orders. 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.
