Why buy Tyvek® bands from Wristband Resources?

Wristband Resources’ Tyvek® wristbands are made with a tamper-proof and non-transferrable adhesive.  We use a special die cut on all of our Tyvek® bands which will make them unusable if anyone tries to remove them.  This helps prevent guests from trying to swap or sell their bands.  Additionally, all bands are sequentially numbered for another layer of protection from illegitimate event-goers or party crashers.

3/4" and 1" Paper Wristbands

Wristband Resources carries 2 different width sizes of Tyvek® bracelets: ¾” and 1”.  The ¾” Tyvek® wristbands are the most commonly-used bands. They are sufficient for most events and are even used as hospital wristbands or in medical facilities.  They offer a printable area for custom logos, text or graphics.  The 1” Tyvek® wristbands offer a bigger printable area to add larger custom logos, text, or graphics.  All of our paper wristbands are 10” long, adjustable to fit any wrist. Also, our bulk paper wristbands come in packs of 100 or 500 depending on your preference. All inks and adhesives used on our Tyvek® wristbands are waterproof and high-performing.

Uses for Paper Wristbands

Paper wristbands are best for short-term use, typically 1-2 days.  They are often used as admission wristbands for concerts, festivals, water parks, school trips, night clubs, bars, fairs, resorts/hotels, parks, theatres, breweries, tours, wineries, trampoline parks, arcades, go-kart tracks, fun centers, aquariums, sporting events and more! They are also great as security tags. Applying a paper wristband to objects/equipment can communicate the status it's in. Let's say you have equipment that is broken, you could apply a red wristband that has customization saying "out of order" to communicate to all to not use. It's an easy and effective way to communicate important information. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is another name for Paper Wristbands?

    Tyvek® wristbands are often referred to as paper wristbands. Tyvek® is a paper-like material made exclusively by DuPont™. Although Tyvek® wristbands have become synonymous with paper wristbands, not all 'paper wristbands' are the same. Tyvek® wristbands are known for being comfortable with a lightweight feel, but also strong and tear-resistant. They offer the perfect mix of wearability while providing safety and security to prevent transferring the wristband to another person. Other paper wristbands may be slightly more economical, but feel scratchy on the skin, can tear or rip easily, and may not have the same polished look if custom printing is needed. 



  • Are Tyvek® (paper) wristbands waterproof?

    Yes, Tyvek is waterproof and tear proof. They can be used at waterparks and won't come off from a shower, which is why they can be called Tyvek® waterproof wristbands. Our neon wristbands for events at water parks are great because they are bright making them easily visible. Our Tyvek® variety pack includes our neon colors in 1 pack (neon green, neon blue, neon red, neon orange, and neon yellow). 

  • Are Tyvek® wristbands recyclable?

    All Tyvek® disposable wristbands are recyclable.  For more information on where and how to recycle your disposable Tyvek® wristbands, please visit the DuPont™ website.  

  • Can you be allergic to Tyvek®?

    Tyvek® is not known to cause allergic reactions since the material is pH neutral. This makes it a safe option for humans and animals.

  • How long do Tyvek® wristbands last?

    Tyvek® wristbands are extremely durable and perform best when used for short-term events (typically 1-2 days in duration). Our paper bracelets for events are purposeful for keeping events secure as they aren't reusable. Once they are attached on the wrist, you can't take it off and reattach it. However, our Tyvek® stock is huge meaning we will always have in stock wristbands.

  • Is Tyvek® adhesive (tape) waterproof?

    Yes, the adhesive on our wristbands is made to be so durable it does not come off in water and when you remove the wristband, the adhesive will destroy the die cut.

  • What are Tyvek® wristbands made of?

    Tyvek® wristbands are made with 100% DuPont™ Tyvek®, a high-density, paper-like material that is lightweight yet durable, comfortable, and water/tear-resistant. These identification solutions are ideal for short-term events (roughly 1-2 days in duration) due to their secure adhesive closure and cost-effectiveness.
