Reminderband News

Helping you create a message the world can see.

Silicone wristbands are still one of the most popular ways to share what you’re passionate about and promote causes you believe in to people around the world. Reminderband is thrilled to have helped so many people from different walks of life and various beliefs share their messages through our wristbands. Faith has a different meaning for everyone, and with that understanding, we’d like to feature a topic that has continued to grow in popularity: using silicone wristbands for faith.

Where to Start:

There is a wealth of pre-made silicone bracelets including WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) and many other popular scripture verses and inspirational phrases. Another huge hit is the Philippians 4:13 wristband, which includes the engraving “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. These wristbands are affordable and comfortable to wear either longterm or just for an event. They’re perfect for a simple but impactful daily reminder and morale boost.

If you’re looking to fine-tune the message and make it especially personal to you, your family, or group ministry and congregation, check out the personalized wristbands and design your own.

Still need ideas? Whether it’s for personal use or groups and events, there is a myriad of ideas for using rubber bracelets for religious purposes.

Top 5 Ways to Use Silicone Bracelets for Your Faith:

1. Daily Reminders or Personal Motivators

It can be hard to remember what’s most important during your busy day; however, a religious wristband can serve as a gentle reminder to live according to your faith. When life gets rough, a little nudge to keep going and “endure to the end” can help motivate you to make the best decisions (Matthew 24:13). Both sides of the wristband can be customized, giving you plenty of space to engrave your favorite messages.

Other inspirational quotes and motivational phrases can also be used. Whether it’s a simple phrase like “Do Hard Things”, or a quote you love, such as “Every moment is a fresh beginning” (T.S. Eliot), you can add whatever helps you to strive to be your best.

2. Group Activity Wristbands

If you’re part of a ministry or church congregation, it’s common to have activities themed around a specific quote or scripture. Using silicone wristbands for those events makes for an elegant and affordable solution to make the event a success. With everyone wearing matching wristbands, the group will feel even more united. Even after the activity is over, attendees will still remember the experience and the memories they had when they see their wristband.

3. Youth Camps

Like group activities, youth camps for youth ministry, scouting, or just plain old fun can also benefit from using custom or faith-based wristbands. Silicone bracelets can be used to identify different groups at a camp as well as memorialize the experience and serve as a fun souvenir for the kids. See how one such Christian-based camp is using wristbands to elevate the camp experience here.

4. Gifts

Silicone wristbands make great gifts among friends, family, and other church members. Whether they’re given out as a holiday or neighbor gift, a birthday gift, or a “just because” gift, people everywhere appreciate the thoughtful nature of a personalized wristband. This applies in any case, but a message of faith can be especially heartwarming to a friend or neighbor who is going through a hard time.

5. Fundraisers

Need a great way to raise money without breaking the bank? Rubber wristbands can be designed and purchased in bulk at a better per-band price, which makes them an excellent fundraising option. Wearing a wristband with a well-known quote or scripture verse is an easy way for people to incorporate their faith into their lifestyle, and promote a wholesome cause through donating via your fundraiser. You’ll be able to fund your activity, camp, or other church efforts in no time by reselling these easy-to-design custom wristbands!

Reminderband Customers Who Love Their Wristbands of Faith

We receive a lot of feedback about how our customers are using their wristbands, and we love to hear those stories. Here are just a few that make us proud:

  • One Amazon customer says about his WWJD wristband: “I love this wristband and get a lot of questions [about] what it stands for. It is a great motivation for me and gives me a visual when I need a little reminder.”
  • Carla T. from CA says “I have been ordering from this company for years. Great quality!! This is a way I advertise the word of God through scripture.”
  • Melissa S. from TX says “I love the friendly service and quality of bands. This is the second time using [these] for my nephew’s fundraiser at our church and we are still happy with [the] product.”

Looking for something more than wristbands? You’ll want to check these out…

Since launching our velvety-smooth Luxe wristbands, we’ve had a huge response from our customers! We appreciate that, and we’ve been hard at work to expand our lineup of Luxe-style products.

If you’re wondering what “Luxe” means, and why you should care when considering your next custom bracelet purchase, here’s the rundown: in addition to the aforementioned Luxe finish, which gives the wristbands a soft, slick feel and look, our Luxe products are a great solution for anyone who wants wristbands fast, without requiring a minimum order.

Enter the Classic Luxe wristband.

Many of our customers want the imprint to be in a different color, which is what makes the Luxe style so nice. We engrave through the top layer so your imprint shows through with an eye-popping contrast! This allows us to create two-tone wristbands without the lead time of a traditional ink-injected wristband. We can get these turned around and delivered in as little as 24 hours!

If you’re looking for something a little bit different, we’ve recently launched our personalized dog tags in our signature Luxe style:

DogTagsGroup1cropped.jpg

They’re only available through Amazon, for now, so check them out for a superb alternative to metal tags. These work great as gifts for family members and friends who serve in the military, or for messages of support, causes, and fundraisers. You can even remove the necklace chain and use them as dog tags for your pets–we have!

We’re actively working to bring more Luxe color combinations to the lineup, so let us know if there are some color options you’d like to see! In the meantime, check out our newest offerings on Reminderband and Amazon!

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?

christmas-2975401_1280.png

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 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 them as rubber to the uninitiated, 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 wristband 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 quote for a wristband that’ll 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 wristband a home run. We’ve been doing this a long time; since 2004 to be exact. You can imagine the phrases and sayings we’ve seen on silicone wristbands 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 many 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 new Luxe dog tags necklaces on Amazon. They’re also perfect for your boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other, or your dog, of course. They’re based on our same design, but with our signature, velvety-smooth Luxe coating added. We really did try to think of everything.

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.

Number One Marshall University Fan.jpg

Rebecca ordered silicone wristbands to remember her son Kyle who passed away unexpectedly in May at the age of 14.  Kyle was special-needs and the number one fan of Marshall University’s Thundering Herd football team.

Each Saturday on game day, Rebecca would post an update on Kyle on Facebook.  Even though Kyle could not communicate, she wrote the post as if Kyle were talking to his friends and other fans about game day.

Rebecca states the following:

“Kyle was very fortunate to get to meet some of the players and family from the herd page. When I saw the bands I knew I had to order them to give to special people who hold Kyle dear to their hearts and miss him very much. Having these bands to wear keeps him even closer to our hearts. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making these.  And if you’re not familiar with Marshall University, one of the things they chant at the football games is… We Are.. Marshall”

Reminderband wishes Rebecca and her family and the whole Marshall family best wishes, success, and fond memories of a very special young man that lives on in the hearts of those that knew him and loved him.

Matthew was born July 21, 2017 with a rare medical syndrome named Charge Syndrome.  It can affect many different parts of the body. The diagnosis Matthew has is Hydrocephalus, Hypoparathyroidism, Cleft Lip/Palate, Bicuspid Aortic Valve, complete heating loss, underdeveloped trachea resulting in having a tracheotomy, and a g-j feeding tube due to two cases of reflux causing pneumonia.

With all of his diagnoses, the family still doesn’t have a clear picture of what Charge Syndrome means for Matthew and are hoping to raise enough money to attend the Charge Syndrome Foundation Conference in 2019.

On May 19th, Braylen was killed in an automobile accident.  Sue Calvert, his grandmother, said the following of the accident:

“This has left a hole in her heart that nothing can replace.

I ordered the bracelets in remembrance of him to show people that his memory will never leave us. He will always be a part of us just as he used to be.

A love for somebody’s gone never fades it just goes into the heart more deeper. Thank you and God Bless.”

We join with Sue in remembering and celebrating the life of such a sweet boy.

Fly high, Braylen.

Meet Ava-Lynn.  Ava was diagnosed with congenital CMV (Cytomegalovirus) in utero and has endured many complications from this infection since birth. Her parents say: “It has been a roller coaster ride since she arrived, but she is rocking it.”  

They created a Facebook page to raise awareness for CMV, share their story and find different avenues to give Ava the best options for success.  

Ava’s parents are starting a fundraising campaign called ‘Ava’s Walk Into the Future” for Ava to undergo a procedure to help with her spastic cerebral palsy. The expectation that surgery will be successful is high, but the procedure is expensive.  

By sharing Ava’s story, her parents hope to prevent #cmvinfection, raise #cmvawareness and #walkintothefuturewithava.

They are giving Reminderband wristbands to everyone who is supporting fundraising efforts for their daughter.
