Helping you create a message the world can see.

 

You go through this every year. You’ve tried all the usual things, from the basket of lotion and body spray for your significant other, to the high-cost gizmo that you think is the coolest thing since the moon landing. Often times, your gift recipient is merely “whelmed” by your attempt at a kind gesture. Maybe he or she is the person who has everything, or maybe they’re just too darn particular. What’s a person to do?

You’ve learned from your missteps, you’ve tested the waters of gift-giving diversification. You’ve spent more money than you care to admit on presents that just didn’t rock the socks off them. Maybe now you think you’re a more discerning and seasoned giver of gifts. Perhaps this time, you can find that million dollar idea without spending an amount equal to the national debt. And just maybe that laughably affordable gift can actually mean something and be (dare we say it?) creative, and thoughtful! If any of this sounds familiar, read on. This is worth the scroll.

Boatloads of people have found the “secret sauce” of gifting. It’s affordable, classy, and it’s creative. You can buy it without leaving the chair, and you can customize it without needing a degree in graphic design. Any guesses?

We’re talking about personalized silicone bracelets.

We know what you’re thinking: “Aren’t those the LIVESTRONG wristbands everyone wore like 10 years ago?” Well, you’d be correct. But what you may not know is that thousands of couples, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, cave trolls, etc, take to the depths of the internet every month to seek out a personalized wristband for him/her to profess their undying love in a colorful and unique way. These rubber bracelets are easy as pie to create and design from the comfort of your computer or smartphone. Speaking of which: they aren’t actually rubber, they’re silicone, but it’s a lot easier to describe rubber to the uninitiated and it’s also easier to type, so in our book the two are synonymous. They have that “rubber” feel, but they’re latex-free, so extra points go to you for thinking of a touching gift that won’t trigger any allergies. You’re just all kinds of considerate.

“I don’t feel that creative. How would I personalize a bracelet for my true love?”

Well, first of all, don’t be so hard on yourself- you’re great. Secondly, this post is for everyone, not just youthful people caught up in twitterpation and boundless passion for life. You may need a personalized bracelet for your girlfriend or boyfriend, or maybe you drew names for your family Christmas gift exchange and you got your younger brother, Kenneth. You’re going to need to come up with a snarky wristband saying that will really put that little weasel in his place (in a loving way, of course).

Pick a band (1).pngWhether your gift is for someone you love platonically or hopelessly, we’ve got an arsenal of ideas for you to use to make your bracelet a home run. We’ve been doing this a long time; since 2004 to be exact. You can imagine the sayings and wristband messages we’ve seen over the years. Some of them have made us laugh, some have made us swoon, and some of them we can’t really repeat out loud.

With our online bracelet maker, you can put just about anything on your wristband, or wristbands, if you like. That way, you can make it be one of those cute couple silicone bracelet sets so you can wear your heart on your sleeve (seriously, we have a heart-shaped wristband. You can literally wear it on your sleeve).

Heart-Periwinkle-CF.png

“What should I write on my wristband?”

Ah, the possibilities… For starters, some of our most popular sayings and messages for silicone wristbands are ones like these:

  • “I love my girlfriend”
  • “I love my boyfriend”
  • “True Love Waits”
  • “One Love”
  • “#1 Wife”
  • “#1 Husband”
  • “Love”
  • “I Love You”

I mean, that last one isn’t that original, but why break with the old standby, right? Combine that with some lovely color styles and slide that wristband on and it’ll be super-effective! Additionally, we often see phrases like “I Love Basketball” or “I Love Football”. We get that. Sometimes all you need is the warm embrace of the pigskin to console you from the harsh realities of life. No judgment here.

“What are some different ways I can use custom wristbands?”

Great question, reader! Beyond the aforementioned ideas, there are myriad ways to let your creativity burst through in the form of glorious silicone bracelets. Since we’re on the topic of couples and love, here is just a sampling of ideas for uses:

  • Wedding/Engagement Announcements
  • Bachelorette/Bachelor Party Favors
  • Anniversaries
  • Matching His and Hers Wristbands
  • Stocking Stuffers!

Bonus: Check out our silicone dog tags. They’re also perfect for your boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other, and of course, your dog. They come in necklace, or keychain form. We really did try to think of everything.

Hopefully, you’ve learned some things about rubber bracelets, and maybe even yourself. Either way, you should be primed and ready for delivering an impactful gift or show of love with a nice-looking wristband! We’ve got plenty more ideas for you over at Reminderband, so take a look while you’re contemplating how to be the most considerate person ever. Or maybe you just want one of our awesome tire-tread wristbands for yourself, because hey, you’ve earned it.

Classic-Debossed-EPI-Pen-Peanut-Allergy

If you are someone who wears a medical identification bracelet or necklace, you are probably well-acquainted with engraved metal bracelets and dog tags. You’re most likely also aware of the hefty price tag that goes along with them.

What you may not be aware of is our nifty medic alert options that are very customizable, and much more affordable than the alternative. Here are just 4 ideas for some solutions that work great for kids or adults:

The Classic

black-diabetic-wristband-hero.ac157297877f (1)

Since 2004, we’ve been cranked out millions of these custom silicone wristbands for just about any occasion you can imagine. One of the leading reasons folks personalize a Classic band at Reminderband is to wear as a comfortable, affordable, and much more personally stylish medical identification wristband. Since there is no minimum order requirement, it’s perfect for those who just need to order one or two. As always, choose from our selection of colors, fonts, and free stock clip art to make a wristband that speaks to you.

Dog Tags

 

DT-Necklace-Silver.png

If you’re one who prefers to sport something around your neck or on a keychain, we have the Dog Tag options, which are made of the same 100% silicone material. These come in two flavors: one with a molded-in medical caduceus on one half and one without. Both are customizable just like our wristbands. You’ll have to be the judge as to which design you like better.

Marquee Wristbands

If you want to retain the recognizable shape of the metal bracelets, try our Marquee wristbands. We offer them in a rectangle and oval shape, with the option to personalize to your liking. The thinner back half of the wristbands are great for additional information like phone numbers or medical instruction.

Contour Wristbands

Epileptic-Contour.png

Thick and Classy. The Contour band is an upgraded spin off our Classic wristband. Featuring rounded edges, this looks and feels more like a bangle or bracelet and is a nice choice for those who want something extra fashionable as well as practical. Splash some color onto your design with tons of gorgeous shades and accent colors for the text from which to choose.

 

So, which is your favorite style? We recognize how important medical identifiers are for a lot of folks, so we take our quality and designs very seriously. Be sure to check out our full lineup on Reminderband.com to find out how awesome our design experience is. Most have no minimum order requirement, and many of our add-ons are free. Don’t forget, we’re offering discounted wristbands if it’s your first order, so now is a great time to give it a try!

Our Friday features really run the gamut of types of events, groups, and individuals and causes. Today, we’d like to briefly spotlight one family and their story of support for their father.

 

25881842_11182935_1484276049.1155.jpg

Amos Abplanalp is known for being a wonderful friend, neighbor, loving husband, and father, high school teacher, coach, a prison counselor, Scoutmaster, and LDS bishop. He has a reputation for helping others and, here at Reminderband, that’s something we can get behind.

unnamed.jpg

Amos was diagnosed in April 2016 with Stage four Colon Cancer. Despite the daily struggles, he still works to provide for his family. There is great familial and community support and love for him, and everyone is cheering him on in his fight against cancer. The events and updates are chronicled through their blog.

unnamed.png

Two runs of wristbands have been ordered up in support of Amos, both touting the #TEAMAMOS hashtag. The first batch was used for a high school fundraiser for the family, which resulted in a sum of $1,200 raised! The second run will be used for awareness. We love this application for the wristbands to support Amos and his family, as well as to spread the awareness to help others!

We wish Amos the and his family the very best. If you would like to support them, check out their gofundme page, and read more about the family’s endeavors on their blog.

Do you need to share a message that stays with people and leaves an impact?

25881842_atkins_devay_and_crowd.jpeg

Devay Campbell is a career coach and business mentor who wants to do just that. She is hosting a Classroom to Career tour to “empower students and equip them with the knowledge they need to get hired and be successful in their careers.” Her plan is to be able to reach one thousand students for the 2017-18 school year.

Devay has designed her own wristbands with a message she hopes will inspire students to remain ambitious and to continue to pursue what they want out of their lives and careers.

unnamed-10.png

She plans to use them to promote her message and serve as a tangible reminder to “always dream no matter what.”

“After so long, we think it is too late.” Says Devay, “We all need a reminder that it is never too late to follow and achieve our dreams. I want to leave this message behind with the students!”

We love this idea and we wish Devay the very best of luck in her tour. To learn more, visit her Facebook page. Want to be featured in our next Feature Friday? Send us an email about what you’re doing with your cause or event, as well as any pictures you’d like us to use. For more ideas on how to make an event or campaign extra awesome, check out reminderband.com today!

Until next time!

Ever wondered what the meaning is behind the increasing amount of purple bracelets these days?

Purple is one of our most oft-requested colors, from custom wristbands to keychains. While most are part of a cause or campaign they’re trying to promote, many are using purple awareness wristbands for their own personal reasons.

Purple Wristbandsv3.jpg

Since we fancy ourselves experts in the realm of awareness bracelets, we decided to talk about some of the most commonly-used reasons for purple bands. In no particular order, here are the Top 8 uses and ideas for purple bracelets:

  1. Epilepsy Awareness – Along with some other notable conditions, this particular item doesn’t get quite enough exposure. Lots of great groups out there are working hard to change that.
  2. Lupus Awareness – Purple has rapidly become associated with Lupus, and we’ve even featured some of the campaigns working to support the cause to get the word out there.
  3. Animal Safety/Shelters – Promoting a respected animal shelter or practices that encourage the rescue, treatment, and safety of animals has been another popular idea for folks to get behind. Many have even had their own logo engraved onto the wristband for that added flare. purple with white2.JPG
  4. Pancreatic Cancer – Whether it’s for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November, or just a way of rallying and supporting a family member, friend, or cancer-fighting community, purple ribbons and wristbands have been well-established as a symbol for this cancer. Common phrases like “Celebrate Hope” are sure to reach a wide audience.
  5. Find a Cure – If it’s for Pancreatic cancer or another condition that needs more treatment and research encouragement, a ribbon keychain or wristband with “Find a Cure” imprinted on it is a colorful and striking way to support the cause.
  6. Alzheimer’s Awareness – Here’s another one that a lot of wonderful people are working to support. Today, the number of people affected by Alzheimer’s is around 5.4 million. Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month is in November.
  7. End Domestic Violence – “Recognize. Report it. Prevent it.” These have been used for some time to give courage and support to victims and those who are aware of a situation which needs to be reported. We’ve seen a myriad of talented groups working hard to spread the word about various causes involving this issue.
  8. Because You Really Like Purple – Sometimes you don’t have a cause to promote and you just need some wristbands for an event, fundraiser, family reunion, or Disneyland trip, or as your own personal Medical Alert ID Bracelet. We get it, Purple is in. We’ve customized boatloads of them for folks since 2004, and the popularity factor is still going strong!

Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC offers resources, connections, and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful.

The YSC was founded in 1998 by three women who were each under age 35 at the time of their diagnosis. Discouraged by the scarcity of resources and awareness of young women with breast cancer, so they formed an alliance through which they could make an impact.

unnamed (13).jpg

YSC has three charity bike rides each year: one in each of the South, East, and West Coasts. This event, the Tour de Pink (TdP) is “an inspiring three-day charity bike ride, with a one-day option, that raises funds for young women affected by breast cancer.”

These rides are completely equipped with the proper furnishings of bike and motorcycle marshals, vehicle support, and plenty of rest stops. They also have lodging and meals for the three-day riders, who commit to raising $2,500 each.

Rachel Kelley, a three-day rider in the YSC Tour de Pink West Coast, will be selling the wristbands to contribute to her fundraising efforts. All proceeds from her wristbands will be donated to YSC through her fundraising page, here.

Did you know that kids and dogs develop several cancers in common including bone cancer, brain cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia?
16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year – with only 3 new kids cancer drugs in 20 years, there is little money behind new drugs- only 4% of NIH’s budget goes to pediatric oncology.
Some 4,000,000 dogs in the US are diagnosed with cancer; 50% of all dogs over the age of 10 die from their disease, and treatment options are limited for man’s best friend.

unnamed (11).jpg

Canines-N-Kids has made a unique practice of partnering the two. Treating and researching cancer in dogs can help us to treat children with the same cancers, furthering the effort in the fight against cancer, and developing better treatment options.

The organization will be using wristbands as a giveaway for their “Paws for a Cure Summit” which will be held June 12th in Washington, DC, as well as for their first annual “Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer” on October 1st, in Brambleton, VA. They eventually hope to offer them for purchase on their website. The bands feature their unique design and logo and will help share their message and raise awareness.

Reminderband is happy to feature this awesome organization and their cause.

To find out more, take a look at www.caninesnkids.org or find them on Facebook.
