In the U.S., it’s estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer during her life.1 While a cancer diagnosis will turn anyone’s world upside down, our customers have found a few uses for custom breast cancer bracelets to make this life-changing event a bit easier to digest.
October is breast cancer awareness month, so it’s the perfect time to build awareness on this important cause. Providing extra support during a cancer warrior’s battle can make all the difference, so read on for the best ways to use custom silicone wristbands to aid in their journey!
Creating custom breast cancer wristbands can help unite friends and family together as they look for ways to provide support to their newly diagnosed loved one. As Kathleen found, a simple wearable reminder can help you keep loved ones in your heart, mind, and prayers when they’re struggling.
Providing additional support to a cancer warrior’s circle can help strengthen them throughout the difficult times ahead. Add a personalized hashtag to show your support, and a comforting phrase to help build a mantra of strength and courage. Many customers choose a hashtag with their last name in it for their breast cancer bracelets, such as #SmithStrong. These custom rubber bracelets are often given to the group of individuals supporting the patient’s journey.
Some examples of common phrases used on breast cancer bracelets for support include: #TeamMadison, #KellyStrong, Cancer Sucks, No One Fights Alone, or phrases such as Sarah’s Warriors. These messages are often accompanied by awareness ribbons, heart clipart, or other graphics from our free art library.
It’s no secret that medical expenses rack up quickly, especially with something aggressive like breast cancer that requires multiple treatments and doctor visits. Joseph, along with many other customers, has found that designing and selling breast cancer awareness bracelets is a great way to build awareness for breast cancer while simultaneously raising funds.
Whether these funds are designated to help pay for medical bills, support families and individuals in need, or fund additional education and research, custom bracelets are a great choice for a fundraiser due to their affordability and versatility.
There are many fundraisers that benefit from using custom wristbands. We often hear about events such as races that are held to raise money as well as smaller-scale fundraisers that primarily sell the wristbands. No matter what method you try, it’s easy to create a breast cancer bracelet for the event.
Common phrases to include on fundraising wristbands for breast cancer awareness are: Find a Cure, #IRunForSydney (or other event hashtag or name), or messaging indicating what the funds are being raised for (research, support, etc.).
Motivation & Inspiration
It’s extremely easy to lose hope when life throws a curveball like breast cancer at you. As Cas and her family found, custom cancer bracelets can help provide another source of inspiration and give you hope for the future as you look to your ‘circle of strength’.
Everyone has favorite words and quotes that inspire and motivate them when they’re feeling down. Find out the favorite inspirational messages of your loved one and have them engraved on a set of wristbands to show them that no matter what, they are not alone in the fight.
Common phrases to include on inspirational breast cancer bracelets are messages like: Hope, favorite scripture verses, inspirational quotes, and personal messages from loved ones.
Education & Organizational Support
Supporting your work family during difficult stages of each member’s life is part of what makes your work family a family. Gustavo’s company ordered breast cancer bracelets to do just that, support a coworker in her time of need.
Businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations often create custom breast cancer bracelets in the fall for educational events to build awareness. How far the cancerous cells have spread at the time of diagnosis is critical, so providing a reminder of how important it is to follow recommended safety precautions and check for abnormalities could be life-changing. This is just one reason why custom breast cancer awareness bracelets are a great addition to an educational event, class, or assembly.
Common phrases to include: breast cancer awareness, supportive phrases, and personalized hashtags like #KendraStrong.
Whether your loved one is newly diagnosed, receiving regular treatments, or is now cancer-free, having a comfortable medical ID is crucial to ensure proper treatment is received during emergencies. Judy ordered an eye-catching medical wristband for her mom so she could have peace of mind that medical professionals would know her mother’s pre-existing medical conditions in an emergency situation.
Common info to include on a medical ID bracelet: information about past surgeries, stage of cancer, treatments or medications currently being taken, and any underlying medical conditions that would affect the treatment given.
Gifts & Survivor Bands
Another fan-favorite use for our silicone bracelets is breast cancer gifts for women, typically in the form of gifts for survivors, or remembrance bands. Edith and her sisters wear their wristbands as a tribute to the fight they won and the blessings they’ve received in that victory.
We offer multiple styles to choose from when designing your custom silicone gift or remembrance bracelet, including our pink awareness ribbon keychain. You can choose from multiple fonts and clipart options for your custom message to create a personal gift or survivor memento.
Leigh created her custom breast cancer bracelets to show thanks for the support she received during her battle. She loved being able to hand out the wristbands as tokens of her appreciation to her support system for being with her through the thick and the thin of her cancer journey.
Some of our customers’ favorite phrases to engrave on gifts or survivor bands include: Cancer Warrior, I Beat Cancer, Cancer Free, and survivor hashtags such as #JennyBeatsCancer.
If you have lost a loved one to breast cancer, you can create custom bracelets to hand out as memorial favors to help others remember their life and wear as a keepsake. Celebrate the strength they showed and the battle that was valiantly fought to the very end. Alan created a memorial bracelet for that very reason, to remember his best friend and what she means to him.
The loss of a loved one is irreplaceable. Creating something special to remember them by is one way to help in the grieving process. Wear your memorial bracelet with pride as you remember the amazing person symbolized in it.
A few common phrases to engrave on cancer memorial bracelets include: Never Forgotten, Forever Loved, #ValiantlyFought, Brave, or other personal hashtags and phrases.
With 1 in 8 women (and 1 in 1000 men) being diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, it’s important to find ways to make the situation a bit easier on patients and their families. Custom breast cancer bracelets can be created and used in multiple ways, including support, fundraising, and motivation, to name a few. If you have any questions, please reach out to our friendly customer support team so we can help you create bracelets that you’ll love!
We see hundreds of creative bracelet designs come through each and every day. This season, we’ve noticed a spike in popularity with three designs in particular. From single wristbands to bulk orders, here are the up-and-coming custom bracelets design trends!
1 – Social Distancing Bracelets
A new bracelet design that has been a big hit this fall is color-coded event wristbands. The red, yellow, and green color combination has been the most common choice for events as they function as social distancing indicators. Guests can feel more comfortable as they choose the wristband color that fits their current level of social distancing and are able to easily communicate this level with other guests. We offer both blank and personalized rubber wristband options!
If red, green, and yellow isn’t your style, we have multiple color options to choose from. Add an event hashtag, slogan, or personal message to create a fun keepsake for guests to take home. You can easily create wristbands for a wedding, fundraiser, party, bridal shower, family reunion, or any other type of event!
2 – VOTE Bracelets
Michelle Obama’s VOTE necklace has made its way through the jewelry industry, and we’re now seeing orders for similar bracelet designs roll in. This election year you can share your message with the world in our eye-catching silicone bands. We believe that everyone’s message matters, so design something that will help you express yours!
3 – Coordinate Bracelets
Your favorite vacation spot. The city where you grew up. Where you met your significant other.
Our most cherished memories are tied to specific locations. The coordinates of the locations that are most near and dear to your heart make a great addition to a bracelet. Design one for yourself or to give as a gift that is both thoughtful and meaningful.
Coordinate bracelets are also a popular option for couples bracelets or anniversary gifts! You can add the coordinates on the front and a personal message on the back to make your wristband even more unique and special. Choose from our available styles and layouts to make the perfect memento.
Runner Up: WW_D Bracelets
While the “What Would ______ Do” wristband isn’t new, its demand is growing and, therefore, deserves the runner-up title. Starting with the ever-so-popular WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) band, we’ve seen more and more customers ordering bands with their own initials and meaning.
One of the most frequently ordered acronyms is “WWMD”. Whether the ‘M’ represents ‘Mom’, ‘Meredith’, or some other name, each acronym has its own meaning. Give meaning to your wristband, and add a source of inspiration to your day, by adding the first initial of your favorite role model.
The possibilities are endless with custom bracelets. Stick around to see more trends and exciting ways to share your message. Whether your message is intended for the world, a friend, or just yourself, wear it proudly!
The end of summer is a bittersweet time for many of us. The warm weather slowly begins to fade, fun summer plans are in the past, and back to school season is in full swing. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or even a student, we’ve put together a list of the top ten uses for school wristbands to help you make the most out of the school year.
1. Uniting Classrooms
The back to school season brings a new year of challenges, with this year being especially challenging. Many students and teachers are now participating in distance learning and teaching over zoom calls. Whether your class is fully remote or participating in a partial in-person program, creating a sense of unity within each class is more important than ever before.
Designing bracelets to hand out to your class is one way to help students feel more connected during this time. One of our customers created these “Connected in Kindergarten” wristbands to hand out in supply kits with a poem to remind her class that even if they’re more isolated this school year, they are never alone.
“Kindergarten is connected heart to heart. A little time and distance can’t keep us apart. I made these bracelets to wear each day, to remind us that our friends are not far away.“
2. School Events
Custom silicone bracelets are the perfect addition to any school event. For instance, red ribbon week, assemblies, teacher appreciation week, or school carnivals, all of which can be more memorable with custom bracelets made for the occasion.
Paper wristbands are often used for week-long events like red ribbon week. Single-use wristbands won’t last after the event, so upgrade to 100% silicone so your students can have a souvenir and reminder that will look great long after the event is over.
3. School Pride
Kick-off the school year right with fun school spirit bracelets that will have your students excited about their school. Simply add your school name, slogan, or mascot to create wristbands that will show off your school spirit. Rubber wristbands are also an affordable school swag option perfect for everyday use or special occasions like spirit week.
School pride bracelets can be especially appreciated by students who are new to the school. New experiences are daunting, so during this stressful time help your students adjust and learn to love their new school so their experience can be one to remember.
With two sides of engraving available, you can create a one-of-a-kind design that friends and family will love. Add a funny phrase related to your club or group to the front of your band with the school name on the back for a unique fundraising product.
Clubs and organizations within the school are always on the lookout for new fundraising ideas. Our silicone bracelets are a versatile fundraising option and will work for any cause. Simply add a message about the event or cause your group is raising funds for and sell your school bracelets to promote and spread your cause further.
5. Raising Awareness
When it comes to building awareness, wristbands are a great choice. Help unite your students together while simultaneously promoting a meaningful cause within your area or school.
Providing support to students and faculty during difficult times can make all the difference, and custom bracelets are an easy way to show your love and support or even raise funds if needed. Personalized rubber bracelets are also a great way to educate your school about organizations and groups within the community that provide valuable resources to students.
6. Sports Team Support
Design some wristbands in your school colors to show your sports team pride! Customers love using our bands for sports team swag to sell or hand out to fans at games. Add a little pep to your rally and bring the school together with matching silicone bracelets!
Selling custom wristbands during games or at school is also a great way to raise funds for travel, uniforms, or other team expenses.
7. Promotional Products
Our eye-catching bracelets are an easy way to generate interest and fill seats at big school events. Promote different clubs, performances, competitions, or school events by word-of-mouth, or rather word-on-wrist.
Have an upcoming school musical you’re selling tickets for? What about a cheer competition? Easily put together a cool wristband design to help spread the word. Hand out bracelets to group members and their families to build excitement for the event as well as provide something to remember it by.
Due to their custom nature, wristbands make great gifts! Honor your graduates with something small to remember their time at your school. Order some bracelets with inspirational or humorous phrases to use as prizes for school contest winners. Create wristbands to hand out to faculty and staff during teacher appreciation week. The possibilities are endless when it comes to gift ideas, so let your imagination run wild and make something personalized and special for your gift recipients!
9. School Dance Bracelets
Dances are one of your students’ most anticipated school events. Each one creates new memories with friends, dates, and classmates that your students will remember forever. Instead of using hand stamps or tickets for your school dances this year, use wristbands! Not only are they easier to keep track of since they’re wearable, but they also make great mementos for your students to cherish.
A few extra special bands could be designed to hand out to prom royalty or other distinguished attendees. Custom bracelets will help your students remember their prom in style!
10. Classroom Prizes
Wristbands make great treasure box prizes for younger students or prizes for your school carnival. They’re 100% silicone and latex-free, which makes them a great choice for an allergy-friendly, non-food prize. You can also order blank wristbands in your school colors or other colors of choice.
A Few Other Ideas…
Some other uses for wristbands at school include school ID wristbands to keep your students safe. These ID wristbands are especially helpful for class field trips to help keep your group together. Silicone bracelets are also a popular choice to help students with food allergies or medical conditions to make sure they receive the treatment they need while at school.
