Personalized silicone bracelets are great for…

  • FUNDRAISERS. Silicone wristbands make great fundraisers. They are cute, trendy, convenient, and inexpensive; they catch the eye, invite conversation, and raise awareness and everyone wants to have one! Silicone Wristbands can be just right for a small community initiative, or for a bigger, national campaign.
  • RAISING AWARENESS. Silicone bands can be used to raise awareness for just about anything. The wristbands can express a commitment made by its wearers, or serve as a reminder of an event, political situation, or community concern. They can be used to rally and reinforce group support, identification, and loyalty around a common goal.
  • MILITARY SUPPORT. Hardly anything can bring a stronger sense of pride and patriotism than the thought of supporting American troops. Wristbands are a great way to foster a sense of solidarity with the men and women of the military during wartime, or to remember community or family members who have joined the military and are far from home.
  • MEMORIALS. Your customized wristbands may serve to keep the memory of a special someone who has passed away, whether a friend, family member or an individual who made a big impact in a community or even an entire country. The custom made wristbands can also serve to represent, honor, and encourage the principles of that person’s life.
  • SCHOOL SPIRIT/SPORTS. Wristbands can help your school club or sports team identify the thing that sets them apart. The silicone bands can be personalized with a group name or a slogan and group colors. They can serve as symbols of pride and loyalty or they can be used to raise funds for a school or sports event.
  • SPIRITUAL/RELIGIOUS GROUPS. Wristbands are great for spiritual or religious groups. In addition to making fundraisers for a variety of group needs, silicone wristbands can be used to raise group morale or encourage faith and spiritual practice.
  • EMPOWERMENT. Wristbands are a powerful way to deliver a personal message of empowerment. It can serve as an encouragement and reminder to people who have committed to a difficult lifestyle change together, or can offer a sense of comfort and inspiration to members of a community who are mourning a grievous situation.

Colors:

Reminderband gives you 32 standard colors to choose from. The color of your wristbands may reflect the colors in your group’s logo, or represent an idea or sentiment. The color of your wristband will form part of what will make your wristband stand out.

Debossed lettering:

Debossed lettering sinks deep into the surface of the wristband. Your words, phrases, or messages can be debossed onto your custom made wristbands. It is a more permanent option than printing on the surface. You can choose large or small lettering and have several font-type options. You can also get your logo debossed onto your wristbands. Or you can order blank wristbands with no debossing.

Color-fill:

You can choose to have colored lettering by having your debossed letters filled with colored silicone which bonds permanently to the wristband, a hardy option that will last long while creating vibrant color contrasts.

Special texture:

Reminderband offers the option of getting wristbands with special textures on the surface such as the tire or golf ball textures. You may opt to have words debossed on your textured wristbands or choose to leave them blank.

Striped:

Put stripes on your bands to give them a sporty or unique look. You can have two-striped or three-striped silicone bands. Alternate vibrant colors or make a stripe pattern that alternates with solid white.

Silkscreen:

Silkscreened wristbands are made by a process of applying colored letters onto the surface of your wristbands. You have many color options and can create a unique and attractive impression with colored letters.

Marbleized:

Marbleized wristbands are decorated with color blends. Just indicate what colors you want and Reminderband will create your unique marbleized pattern for your custom wristbands.

Multi-color:

Similar to striped bands, multi-color bands allow you to color your band with several colors placed in vertically aligned sections.

Phat Option:

You may also opt to have your wristbands at a wider size than the standard width. This is Reminderband’s Phat band.

Are you trying to raise money for an important cause but you’re having a little trouble brainstorming ideas? Whether your local bird-watching club needs to get some funds or you need to raise money for a church, you probably want to come up with something effective and easy. Here are some great ideas to get you started toward your goal.

1. Car Wash

This is a popular fundraising method for schools, although churches and other community organizations can use it too. The best thing about this idea is there isn’t much you need to buy to get started. Gather some friends or group members to help out and have everyone keep track of how many cars they wash throughout the day.

2. Bake Sale

Bake sales are fun to have and fun to participate in! Who doesn’t enjoy homemade cakes, cookies and fresh bread? Many schools and offices are also using baked pizza sales and selling a variety of pizzas to raise money. If you go this route, make sure you offer lots of options to get more people interested in your cause.

3. Host a Tournament

Try inviting people you know in the community to participate in a sporting tournament such as golf. These small tournaments can take place in a local facility for free (or a small cost) and you can give out small trophies and prizes to the winners. This type of event can generate a lot of money to support your cause.

4. Sell Reminderbands

Reminderbands are high-quality silicone wristbands that you can customize with nearly any color under the sun and the name of your organization, event, school, church or anything else! You don’t need to make a minimum order so you can order as many as you think you’ll sell. They’re also really affordable and popular with kids as well as adults. Reminderbands are a great way to bring in some money and send people home with a thoughtful token.

5. Host a Breakfast

If you’re raising money for a group or a church, why not host a pancake breakfast for the neighborhood? You’ll get to know more people in your community and perhaps get some new members while also getting some much-needed money together. Try hosting the breakfast on a holiday like Labor Day or a weekend to get more people to attend. You can start at 6 or 7 in the morning and go for three or four hours. Don’t forget to place an ad in your local newspaper and throw flyers up around town to get the word out! Chances are you’ll get a large number of people to attend and you can often raise hundreds of dollars with these.
