Top 5 Uses for Faith-Based Wristbands

Silicone wristbands are still one of the most popular ways to share what you’re passionate about and promote causes you believe in with 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 custom wristbands. From awareness bracelets to fundraising wristbands, and everything in between, we have a bracelet shade for you. Check out our wristband color meanings page for more information on different bracelet shades and what they represent.

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 bracelets for faith, or religious bracelets.

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 long-term or as event wristbands. They’re perfect for a simple but impactful daily reminder and morale boost.Religious-Bracelets_WWJD_Scripture-Jewelry

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 our personalized wristbands and design your own.

Still need ideas? Whether you want a single band for personal use or wholesale wristbands for 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 event wristbands, the group will feel even more united. Even after the activity is over, attendees will still remember the experience 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.

Have an Allergy or Health Risk? Here are 4 Cool Medic Alert Ideas

If you are someone who wears a medic alert bracelet or necklace, you are probably well-acquainted with engraved metal bracelets and dog tags. You’re most likely also aware of the hefty price tag that goes along with them.

What you may not be aware of are our nifty 100% silicone, latex-free medic alert bracelets that are very customizable, and much more affordable than the metal alternative. Here are just 4 ideas for some solutions that work great for kids or adults:

1. The Classic

black-diabetic-wristband-hero.ac157297877f (1)

Since 2004, we’ve cranked out millions of these custom silicone wristbands for just about any occasion you can imagine. One of the leading reasons folks personalize a Classic band at Reminderband is to wear as a comfortable, affordable, and much more personally stylish medical bracelet. Since there is no minimum order requirement, it’s perfect for those who just need to order one or two. As always, choose from our selection of colors, fonts, and free stock clip art to make a wristband that speaks to you.

2. Medic Alert Dog Tags

If you’re one who prefers to sport something around your neck or on a keychain, we have Dog Tag options, which are made of the same 100% silicone material. These come in two flavors: one with a molded-in medical caduceus on one half and one without. Both are customizable just like our wristbands. You’ll have to be the judge as to which design you like better.

3. Marquee Wristbands

If you want to retain the recognizable shape of the metal bracelets, try our Marquee wristbands. We offer them in a rectangle and oval shape, with the option to personalize to your liking. The thinner back half of the wristbands are great for additional information like phone numbers or medical instruction.

4. Contour Wristbands

Thick and Classy. The Contour band is an upgraded spin-off on our Classic wristband. Featuring rounded edges, this looks and feels more like a bangle or bracelet and is a nice choice for those who want an extra fashionable, as well as a practical, medic alert wristband. Splash some color onto your design with tons of gorgeous shades and accent colors for the text from which to choose.

So, which is your favorite style? We recognize how important medical identifiers are for a lot of folks, so we take our quality and designs very seriously.

The Top 8 Ideas for Purple Wristbands

Ever wondered what the meaning is behind the increasing amount of purple bracelets these days?

Purple is one of our most oft-requested colors, from custom wristbands to keychains. While most are part of a cause or campaign they’re trying to promote, many are using purple awareness wristbands for their own personal reasons.

Purple Wristbandsv3.jpg

Since we fancy ourselves experts in the realm of awareness bracelets, we decided to talk about some of the most commonly-used reasons for purple bands. In no particular order, here are the Top 8 uses and ideas for purple bracelets:

  1. Epilepsy Awareness – Along with some other notable conditions, this particular item doesn’t get quite enough exposure. Lots of great groups out there are working hard to change that.
  2. Lupus Awareness – Purple has rapidly become associated with Lupus, and we’ve even featured some of the campaigns working to support the cause to get the word out there.
  3. Animal Safety/Shelters – Promoting a respected animal shelter or practices that encourage the rescue, treatment, and safety of animals has been another popular idea for folks to get behind. Many have even had their own logo engraved onto the wristband for that added flare. purple with white2.JPG
  4. Pancreatic Cancer – Whether it’s for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November, or just a way of rallying and supporting a family member, friend, or cancer-fighting community, purple ribbons and wristbands have been well-established as a symbol for this cancer. Common phrases like “Celebrate Hope” are sure to reach a wide audience.
  5. Find a Cure – If it’s for Pancreatic cancer or another condition that needs more treatment and research encouragement, a ribbon keychain or wristband with “Find a Cure” imprinted on it is a colorful and striking way to support the cause.
  6. Alzheimer’s Awareness – Here’s another one that a lot of wonderful people are working to support. Today, the number of people affected by Alzheimer’s is around 5.4 million. Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month is in November.
  7. End Domestic Violence – “Recognize. Report it. Prevent it.” These have been used for some time to give courage and support to victims and those who are aware of a situation which needs to be reported. We’ve seen a myriad of talented groups working hard to spread the word about various causes involving this issue.
  8. Because You Really Like Purple – Sometimes you don’t have a cause to promote and you just need some wristbands for an event, fundraiser, family reunion, or Disneyland trip, or as your own personal Medical Alert ID Bracelet. We get it, Purple is in. We’ve customized boatloads of them for folks since 2004, and the popularity factor is still going strong!

What should I put on my memorial bracelet?

In-Our-Heart-Memorial-Bracelet_Royal-Blue-Wristband

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 you can order bulk wristbands or 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 wristband phrase
  • Names
  • A hashtag or URL for more information
  • Dates
  • Symbols or artwork to represent a cause or a person who passed away
