Silicon wristbands, ever heard of them? What are they? They sound so geeky. But no, they’re not computer parts nor are they some fancy gadgets. In fact, they’re fashion accessories.
Wildly popular back in the 80s (thanks to the celebrities that used to wear them), silicon wristbands are fashion items that are made from silicon. They are also known as rubber bracelets which were initially made stringy thin, like the ones used to tie up vegetables in the groceries. They come in so many colors and are worn multiple pieces at a time.
Years later, they re-emerged looking thicker and more versatile. People who are into fashion are not the only ones who can appreciate and enjoy them but working people as well, especially those in advertising or marketing.
The thicker versions of these wristbands now have space for printing where words and/or messages can be printed on. Some companies have caught on fast and have already started using silicon wristbands to promote awareness for their brands.
Case in point, the basketball players and their wristbands. The ones these players are sporting are not plain colored ones but are printed with whatever brand is sponsoring them. With the game’s huge following, the ad would surely get noticed and hopefully, if worn by a popular basketball star, the product has a big chance of becoming a success.
But aside from boosting sales, these wristbands are also useful in promoting a great cause and in creating awareness. Slogans, shout outs or websites have bigger chances of getting noticed when they are always visible.
Since the use for silicon wristbands has increased, buying them became easier and faster. Souvenir shops that customize giveaways sell them both in their physical stores and online. For big buyers however, there are so many online wholesale sellers that offer customized wristbands at a much lower price.
Just like with other products, prices may vary because of the thickness and size of the band and also because of the style of the prints. There are various sizes available: Extra Small (6.5 inches long), Small (7 inches in diameter), Medium (7.5 inches), Large (8 inches), and Extra Large (8.5 inches). Medium to extra large sizes fit adults best.
As for the thickness, there are 4 types available: 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and 1 inch. But the size that’s widely used is ½-inch thick. The reason for that size’s popularity is simple – it allows for easily readable prints, which is most important in creating an advertisement.
With silicon wristbands, the print style won’t be plain and boring. It can be from the simplest screen printed, ink-filled, simple debossed (prints look carved in) and embossed (protruding). But aside from these styles, one has the option to mix and match at most two styles. Here’s one good example – simple debossed with ink fill. That would be so unique and appealing.
Usually, sellers leave the wristbands’ design to the buyers since these are customizable according to a specific target; but for the lost and the artistically-challenged, these online sellers have their gallery where one can view and copy the design. It’s also an option to use one of those premade designs and tweak it a little so the final design would be unique.
Finally, aside from wristbands, the sellers also offer other silicon-made products such as finger bands, keychain bands and slap wristbands. All of these can be ordered online, meaning there’s no need to waste time driving to a brick-and-mortar store. Also, most sellers don’t enforce a minimum quantity requirement, and they offer free delivery – well, as long as the location is in one address.
