Now it’s off to the 3-step builder. In step one, you’ll enter your phrase. Don’t worry about color or artwork, that’ll come later. For now, flex those literary muscles and choose a phrase that best represents your idea.

Don’t forget to choose a font option after entering a phrase. We’ve got loads of choices. When everything looks good, go ahead and click “Next Step” to get to the fun stuff.

In step two you’ll see four spots to upload artwork, which correspond to the left and right side of your front and/or back phrases. Go ahead and click on one to choose some artwork to go with your phrase. You can type anything you’d like in the search bar to pull up a myriad of results, or, you can upload your own fancy logo. From a business icon to a handwritten signature. Yes, we can.

Don’t forget to select your band size and type in a quantity. Unsure of what size to choose? Just click the question mark icon to bring up our sizing guide. We’ve got your back.

Abri was just eight years old when she was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, on September 4, 2015. After a year of brutal treatment and limb salvage surgery, she is now six months in remission.

 

The folks behind supporting Abri, her Team Abri facebook page, and others affected by childhood cancer have designed their very own wristband to spread Abri’s message. This band shares the prayer that she prays every night:

We love Abri’s message and we wish her and all others facing the devastation of childhood cancer the best of luck!

To learn more about Abri’s story and about others who are battling cancer, head over to their facebook page, here. If you have your own cancer support organization, page, or group, take a look at our resources for all the cancer types and wristbands to find the perfect bracelet or keychain for your cause.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so you may be rushing off to buy those adorable little candy hearts right now, but don’t forget the real thing. You know, a human heart.

This month, there is a national focus and extra attention on heart health and awareness that we at Reminderband are glad to be a part of!

Among some of the big events going on this month were last night’s Red Dress Collection 2017, which is put on by the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women, as well as the multiple fundraiser events across the country, where schools and communities wear red to raise cardiovascular health awareness and fundraisers which go to organizations like the American Heart Association and others.

Reminderband is excited to be part of the hubbub with our wristbands, keychains, dog tags, and Tyvek. Heck, we even have a heart-shaped wristband, to boot. Our awareness bracelets are a comfy, low-cost option to share a message with the community, or simply to give yourself a personal reminder to stay on top of your health game. Check out our ideas pages for awareness and medical alert products to get started right away.

“Our daughter, Patty, in the center of the picture, was nine when she was bullied nearly to death, leaving us a suicide note. Thankfully, we found it, pulled her from the school, got her into counseling, and started our #PattyStrong campaign.”

Teresa, Patty’s mom, has since used the anti-bullying wristbands to get the message out about bullying in our schools and the damage it can cause. Some 13 million kids are bullied in US schools each year. This is one mother’s efforts to shed light on an ongoing threat to kids and how it affects them and their families. Using various hashtags, Teresa has been able to make quite a push in spreading the word to stop bullying. Through supportive messages of solidarity and positive reminders, her campaign has made a difference.

“We probably ordered from you eight times,” said Teresa, who also says she has been able to distribute bracelets to hundreds of kids in her area’s schools.

To learn more about Patty’s story and others, head over to thebullyproject.com to see how you can help the cause. If you’d like to use awareness wristbands for your own campaign against bullying, check out our options for custom bracelets and ideas to get started.

Our band builder makes it easier than ever before to design every aspect of your bracelets, right down to the color, font, size and phrase.

 

So how many wristbands would you need to sell to hit your fundraising goal? Here’s a hypothetical for you:

fundraisingexample-2

Check out our nifty calculator on our fundraising page to play around with the numbers to help you decide how many bands you’ll need and how to price them. You’ll most likely find that people are willing to be more generous than usual for these bands when it’s for a good cause. One popular rule of thumb for selling wristbands at a fundraiser is “One for three, two for five.”

Still have questions about fundraising with silicone wristbands? Give us a call or send us an email; we’d love to chat with you. Good luck!

Did you know that almost 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer every year? That’s according to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, who also says that is “virtually always preventable with vaccination and appropriate screening”. If you look around, there are plenty of resources offered to educate about cervical health and ways to prevent cervical cancer.

Greetings from (snow-covered) Northern Utah! Hopefully, your 2017 is off to a fantastic start. We think we can make it just a bit better by giving you the rundown on one of our favorite products: Printed bracelets.

Read on for a brief Q & A!

screenprint-gradient

  • What makes a screen print wristband different from a Classic band, or one of the other products on your site?
    • Our printed bands have the same great silicone thickness, makeup, and quality, with the main difference being the printing method. Instead of engraving your design, as with our other bracelets, we print on the surface.
  • What’s the advantage of that?
    • Printing on the surface allows us to place an incredible level of detail on the wristbands, using more complex fonts and more intricate artwork that wouldn’t normally work well on an engraved wristband. It also allows us to do multi-color imprints with ease, such as a logo that is two colors, and text that is another. Because of the process we use, we can also produce printed bands faster than color-filled wristbands, saving a few days’ time for production.
  • They probably cost more, and have a high minimum, right?
    • Wrong! Printed wristbands are the most inexpensive way to get a color imprint. You can save as much as 35 cents per wristband over the Classic. Since there is no engraving, we pass that savings on to you. And our minimum is one of the lowest anywhere, at just five bands.
  • How do I design one? Is it a different process?

Have more questions? Feel free to give our super-friendly customer support team a call at 800-922-5401 or shoot an email over to us at customerservice@reminderband.com. You can take a look at our screen printed wristbands page here. Until next time!

Silicone has been our mainstay for 12 years, but we’re excited to announce the addition of Tyvek wristbands to the Reminderband repertoire. And we can’t help but brag: we’ve got the best Tyvek wristband builder on the Internet.

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 1-1.51.23 PM.png

Design your own custom, professional-quality wristbands by choosing custom text, colors, and graphics, or uploading your own artwork with our easy-to-use builder. They will be printed in HD on durable, waterproof, and authentic DuPont Tyvek. (Like so:)

https://sketchfab.com/models/1a0367b3eac444269f19a95755bfc72b/embed

Also brag-worthy: we offer the smallest quantities of Tyvek available. (“Smallest quantities?” you say. “Wouldn’t you want larger quantities?”) Well, we offer large quantities too, but most Tyvek sellers require a minimum order of 100 bands or more. Our minimum is just one sheet: 10 bands. That way you don’t have to order more than you need, saving you money. We also don’t charge a setup fee, saving you more money.

So that’s our big Tyvek bombshell! Keep us in mind if you’ve got an event, cause, or business that could use custom disposable wristbands. Let us know if there’s patterns, fonts, or images you’d like to see that aren’t already in our builder. Happy designing!

You can now put your custom silicone wristband on a keychain! We’ve started securing our high-quality, 100% silicone wristbands with a metal clamp and keychain ring and they are available for customization and order. The new Wristband Keychain is only available with Classic bands right now (so no Thin or Phat), but you can still choose from a variety of colors and patterns and artwork, or design your own:
