Top Ten Wristband Ideas for Back to School

Summer is fading fast. School is here for some and just around the corner for many! Today we’re featuring our top ten school wristband uses:

10. Events

Silicone wristbands can make a great souvenir for memorable school events like homecoming, dances, or other student body activities. More durable than Tyvek, they can also be used as a way to keep track of ticketing and entry.

9. Thank-you

Custom wristbands can be a great way to say thank you to teachers, volunteers, PTA members, and administration.

8. Support

Silicone bracelets are often used as memorial bands or to demonstrate support for class members or staff going through tough times. For example, supporting a high school coach through cancer to to raise funds for a sister school after a hurricane.

7. Graduation

Custom wristbands make a great way to commemorate graduation — even sixth-grade graduation. Bands that read “Class of ____” are some of our most popular school wristband choices. For more graduation ideas, try this article on high school graduation traditions.

6. Clubs

Mark club membership and support by using wristbands for clubs: chess, art, drama, debate, etc. Different benefits and ways to use silicone bracelets for identification, pride, raising awareness, and fundraising can be found here.

5. Achievement Programs

Some teachers and administration like to use wristbands as part of reading, studying, or achievement programs. They can be used as either a reward for success in the program or be used to launch and garner attention towards and serve as a reminder for the program.

4. Sports

Track, football, soccer, cheer, basketball… custom sports wristbands are great for building team spirit (and fundraising) for school sporting events and teams. Here are ways to use wristbands for fundraising, building awareness, tournaments, and more.

3. Excellence

Schools often use wrist bands to promote and reward excellence in behavior and good deeds. One school used wristbands to promote kindness.

2. Awareness

Whether the cause is staying drug-free, stopping bullying, a suicide prevention message, health commitment, or Walk-to-School Day, wrist bands are a tangible, wearable reminder of the cause or promise and a great way to spread awareness among students and staff. Give them out at an assembly or classroom event to build awareness and even save lives.

1. SCHOOL SPIRIT

School mascot/school spirit wristbands are the number one most popular back-to-school wristband from Reminderband. They are used to fundraise,  given out at assemblies or activities, worn around the school, and build school pride. They can also be used to commemorate anniversaries.

Bracelets in the News Who's Wearing Wristbands?

Wristbands and freedom of speech

Should wristbands with a message be banned from the sporting arena?

A member of the national English cricket team was banned from wearing rubber wristbands in support of Palestine during international cricket matches by the referee.

“Moeen Ali has been banned from wearing ‘Save Gaza’ and ‘Free Palestine’ wristbands in the remainder of the third Test against India in Southampton by David Boon, the former Australia batsman who is the International Cricket Council’s match referee,” reports the Guardian.

The International Cricket Council released the following statement:

“The ICC equipment and clothing regulations do not permit the display of messages that relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes during an international match. Moeen Ali was told by the match referee that while he is free to express his views on such causes away from the cricket field, he is not permitted to wear the wristbands on the field of play and warned not to wear the bands again during an international match.”

Do you think the ban was fair? Did the referee make the right call? Are there places where it is inappropriate to wear political wristbands or silicone bracelets supporting a cause?
