What are wristbands made of?


Reminderband® silicone wristbands are made of 100% industrial strength polished silicone. Silicone is a synthetic compound designed to be heat and allergy-resistant and durable. Making wristbands from silicone ensures that they will not break or tear easily and can be worn for months (or even years!).

Why not rubber?

Even though silicone wristbands are often referred to as “rubber bracelets,” most aren’t made of rubber. Rubber wristbands and bracelets that are made of rubber break much more easily and wear out much faster than silicone wristbands.

How high is high-quality?

Many wristband companies contract with independent Chinese factories to make the bands. Using multiple factories means that quality can vary from order to order. Reminderband works with its own production team to produce its wristbands to ensure and guarantee high-quality wristbands. Reminderband also conducts research and production tests to make sure the silicone wristbands are of the highest quality, and every order is double-checked to ensure wristbands are of the highest quality, both with silicone and customization.

Reminderband wristbands are also made thicker than wristbands produced by other companies, meaning that they break or tear less easily and are thus stronger, longer-lasting and more durable. Silicone is also tested across batches to ensure color and quality are consistent.

What about decorations and customizations?

Reminderband customizations also use high-quality silicone and are built to last long.

Debossing, for example, is the process Reminderband uses to etch phrases and logos into custom silicone wristbands. Letters and symbols aren’t just printed on the surface, but are instead molded into the silicone of the wristband for a clear, durable message.

Color-fill uses the same high-quality silicone that Reminderband wristbands do. The phrase is debossed into the band, and then the etching is filled with silicone of another color. The two silicones bond permanently, so the wristband stays clear, sharp and colorful and, unlike painted bands, will not chip, crack, fade, or peel.

Reminderband also backs the quality of its silicone wristbands with a guarantee: “All our wristbands come with a 30 day money back guarantee, if you are not satisfied with the quality of our wristband.”
