Popularly used at community vigils, family memorial services, or even just as personal reminders or tributes, memorial bracelets are a way to honor loved and lost ones for years to come. Inexpensive, durable, and customizable, silicone wristbands are often a popular token, especially when they can be ordered in bulk or in orders as small as one band.
This begs the question: what to put on the memorial band? There are a couple of factors to consider when designing or customizing a memorial bracelet. One is its intended use: is it a gift for those attending a funeral, or intended to rally a community around a cause, or serve as an individual, personal reminder? Another is visibility. People often ask questions about silicone awareness bracelets — how much are you willing to or wanting to share? If you don’t want to talk about it, a less vibrant color and design might be better suited to your purpose. Finally, the bracelet should serve as a reminder of the cause and/or person and honor them. Use words, phrases, colors, or artwork that represent them.
Examples of things people have put on Reminderband memorial bracelets in the past include:
- A memorial or religious phrase
- A hashtag or URL for more information
- Symbols or artwork to represent a cause or a person who passed away
