Where Can I Buy Charity Wristbands?
Wristbands provide an easy way to raise funds for a charitable cause and show your support. Silicone wristbands have been used to show support for a cause since the early 2000s. Since then, certain colors have been associated with different causes and awareness campaigns. For instance, light pink is often used for breast cancer awareness. Some causes have adopted multiple colors. For instance, blue and yellow are used for Down Syndrome awareness. In this article, we will discuss the different types of bands as well as how Wristband Resources™ can add value to your next charity event.
Types of Silicone Wristbands
Believe it or not, there are multiple kinds of silicone wristbands. The most popular styles are debossed, printed, ink-injected, and color coated. Each style is uniquely different, giving you more options as you decide on your charity event or fundraiser. You are bound to find the right style for your organization.
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 wristbands 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 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.
Why sell wristbands to raise funds?
Aside from relying on donations, nonprofit and charity organizations need a way to raise funds for their organization. Furthermore, they need a way to raise awareness for their cause without accruing large advertising expenses. The obvious answer is branded merchandise, but what kind? Many organizations sell t-shirts, drinkware, or drawstring bags. Others have started to sell branded tech and office accessories.
While these items might generate revenue for organizations, they don’t offer the same level of exposure as a simple silicone wristband. For starters, most people rarely take off their wristbands. There isn’t a need to—you can wear them in most situations, and many people often forget that they are wearing them. Wristbands also work as a great conversation starter. I have been asked countless times what my wristband says. This allows me to explain the organization and the cause I am supporting.
Odds are if you are fundraising using wristbands, you are purchasing the product in bulk. Like most items, when bought in bulk, you receive a discount. For example, if you purchase 5000 or more debossed silicone wristbands from us, your unit cost is 16 cents. This increases your margin and revenue when you sell them. For example, a pink breast cancer awareness wristband can sell on Amazon for about 6 dollars. That means if you pay 16 cents per unit and can sell all 5000 units for 6 dollars, your total profits would be 29,200 dollars. Wristbands are an excellent way to raise funds and awareness for a good cause.
