Tyvek® wristbands provide an economical and secure way to identify customers and patrons across countless types of events. Often referred to as paper wristbands, Tyvek® is a material made exclusively by DuPont™ and is known for its tear resistant, comfortable, and lightweight feel. Because of those properties, Tyvek® makes an excellent material for wristbands.
The infographic below gives you an at-a-glance look at the features and benefits offered in every first quality Tyvek® wristband.
Why buy Tyvek® bands from Wristband Resources?
Wristband Resources’ Tyvek® armbands 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 take off the band. This helps prevent event wearers 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.
Wristband Resources carries 2 different width sizes of Tyvek® bracelets: ¾” and 1”. The ¾” Tyvek® wristbands are the most commonly used bands and are sufficient for most events and are even used as hospital wristbands or in medical facilities. They offer a sizable printable wristband area for custom logos, text or graphics. The 1” Tyvek® wristbands offer a bigger printable wristband area to add larger custom logos, text or graphics. All of our Tyvek® event wristbands are 10” long, adjustable to fit any wrist.
All inks and adhesives used on our Tyvek® wristbands are waterproof and high-performing.
Our Tyvek® bracelets come in more than 20 different, bright vibrant in-stock colors. We also have more than 50 pre-designed Tyvek® bands covering themes from “VIP” to USA wristbands. We also carry specialty Tyvek® wristbands such as “duplicate numbered” security bands for matching two people with the same number on the band (parent/child), voucher wristbands with a tear-able stub (great for raffles, coat checks, free giveaways, etc.), and tab-free Tyvek® bands to reduce waste and the need to clean up any adhesive tab paper.
