Silicone wristbands are a great, low cost promotional item often used for fundraising, causes, events, and charitable activities. Customers typically choose bracelets in a specific color that represent a particular cause (i.e. red for addiction) in an effort to help promote it. Often referred to as rubber bracelets, our bands are made from 100% silicone and are the best quality you will find. They are latex and lead free, as well as SDS certified, so there are no safety concerns. Wristband.com's silicone bracelets are also extremely durable; we’ve had customers who have worn their rubber bracelets for years without snapping or breaking.
Wristband Resources offers a variety of ways in which to customize your own, one-of-a-kind silicone wristband. Personalized silicone bracelets allow you to create something unique, no matter the purpose or function. If you want to buy from us, we have more details about custom silicone bracelets below.
Imprinted – Custom silicone wrist bands with an imprint are the most popular type of silicone band. Imprinting means the graphics and text are laid on top of the silicone armband with a wear-resistant ink. Because the ink is laid directly on the silicone wristband, you are able to achieve the most detail from this method of customization. Imprinted custom rubber bracelets also have the shortest lead time (as low as 1 business day), so they are great if you are in a crunch and you need something fast.
Debossed – Custom silicone bracelets with debossed personalization are most similarly aligned with the “Live Strong” wristbands that were popular years ago. The debossing means that the text and graphics are laser etched into the band. Debossed silicone wristbands can also have ink placed into the etched area for a premium look. When customizing your debossed bands on the site, you can choose to have either no ink color, or one of over 10 ink colors to fill into the etching. Debossed rubber wristbands with a color fill have a longer lead time than imprinted bands, so plan accordingly!
Embossed – Custom made silicone bracelets with embossed personalization are where the text and graphics are raised up from the band. You can physically feel the letters and graphics on the silicone bracelets. Embossed wristbands can also have ink imprinted onto the raised surface of the band, creating a really unique 3-D look to the bands. Silicone bands with an embossed customization also have a longer lead time than imprinted silicon bracelets.
Our online product designer (silicone bracelet maker) is an excellent tool to customize silicone bracelets. You can select from any of our offered silicone wrist band colors with the option to upload your own artwork or select artwork from our library of hundreds of clip art.
