Over the past several years, silicone wristbands have gained long-lasting popularity. The infamous yellow “Livestrong” band created by Lance Armstrong may have been the inception of the craze and it shows no sign of slowing down….which is good because neither do we. Since 1995, Wristband Resources has been working hard to satisfy our customers with a variety of innovative identification solutions, including silicone.
Not all silicone wristbands are created the same. Our awareness bracelets are made with 100% non-allergenic, latex-free, high-quality silicone which is soft and comfortable, yet durable.
Silicone wristbands can be used in any industry or venue and are an effective, low-cost promotional item perfect for a wristband fundraiser, cause-event marketing or charitable activity. Wristband Resources is your best bet for all wristbands and we are dedicated to being your number one source for silicone.
Silicone wristbands can make your event a memorable one. By adding your logo or personalized message to a silicone wristband creates a unique souvenir or remembrance that lasts for a long time because of the silicone durability.
Styles of Silicone
Wristband Resources offers a variety of styles and options that can be customized including: printed, debossed, ink injected, embossed, embossed printed and color coat. Choose the style you like, customize your band and get exactly what you want. From our numerous years of experience, we have seen the best results using dark imprint colors on light-colored wristbands and light imprint colors on dark colored wristbands.
- Debossed Wristbands: Our debossed wristbands are made with 100% non-allergenic, soft and comfortable silicone. Manufactured using laser-etched technology, the customized message/artwork is engraved into the silicone band. Once engraved, ink can be placed into the etched area for a bold and sleek look.
- Ink Injected Wristbands: Our ink injected wristbands are made with 100% non-allergenic silicone. Logos or messages are etched into the band and then ink-injected with a proprietary, durable ink that is long lasting and helps to protect the design on the band from wearing over time.
Printed: Using silk-screen technology, the message/artwork is silk-screened and printed directly on the top layer of the wristband. The end result is a smooth, sleek wristband that is comfortable and heat and water-resistant.
- Embossed Wristbands: Our embossed wristbands are made with 100% non-allergenic silicone. With embossed wristbands, the text and graphics are raised from the wristband’s surface. Ink can be imprinted onto the heightened surface creating a noticeable, unique look.
- Embossed Printed Wristbands: Our embossed printed wristbands are made with 100% non-allergenic silicone. With embossed printed wristbands, the text and graphics are raised from the wristband’s surface AND silk-screened printed with ink. The raised text and/or graphics are printed with single or multiple colors using precise silk-screening technology, creating a vibrant look.
- Color Coat Wristbands: Our color coat wristbands are made with 100% non-allergenic silicone. Color coated wristbands are double-layered with one color on the inside and another color on the outside. Once engraved, the original color of the wristband shows through. The end result is a striking contrast that displays the text more vividly.
