An Easy Way to Stay Motivated & Crush Your Goals

With 2020 in the rearview mirror, it’s time to reflect on the past year. New year, new you. What changes would you like to make in your life? What are some of the things you know are important, but never seem to make the priority list?

The most common New Year’s Resolutions are health-related. We all want to become the best version of ourselves, but staying motivated is difficult when you’re not seeing results from all your efforts. Whether your goal is to reduce stress, exercise more, eat healthier, get more sleep, or anything else, a motivational custom bracelet can help you stick to your goal!

Motivational-Quote-Bracelets_Thin-Silicone-Bands_Inspirational-Wristbands

Our thin bands are the perfect size for a short motivational phrase. Remind yourself that it’s all about consistency, and ‘progress, not perfection’. ‘You are your only limit’, so keep a positive mindset and focus on the small steps you’re making towards your goal. You won’t get there overnight, but all of those small steps add up over time.

Choose a motivational phrase for your silicone wrist band that helps remind you and push you to reach your goal. Do #WhateverItTakes to get there, because all the work you put in will be worth it at the end of the journey.

Whatever-It-Takes-Wristband_Motivational-Bracelet
Sore-today-strong-tomorrow-wristband_Motivational-Silicone-Wristbands

If your goal involves exercising more, ‘Sore today, strong tomorrow’, might be a great personal mantra to add to a custom wristband. Push yourself to new personal bests; the only workouts you’ll regret are the ones you miss.

Maybe your resolution involves spending more time with your family or volunteering more often. Choose a motivational phrase for your custom bracelet like ‘Be the Change’, as you work to build new habits.

Be-the-change-bracelet_Custom-Motivational-Wristband
Fitness-Motivation-Bracelets_Inspirational-Wristbands

Motivational customized bracelets are a great way to stay positive and focused on your goal. Keep motivation at your fingertips, or on your wrist, so you can crush your goals this year. Sure, change is hard; but all the best things in life require sacrifice and hard work. Put in the effort now so you can reap the benefits of your determination in the future.

No matter what your resolution is (or resolutions if you’re especially ambitious), an extra dose of daily motivation can help you stay the path even when it gets rocky. Choose your favorite inspirational phrase, and create your custom wristband today.

The Ever-Popular Gift Ideas You May Have Overlooked

You go through this every year. You’ve tried all the usual things, from the basket of lotion and body spray for your significant other, to the high-cost gizmo that you think is the coolest thing since the moon landing. Oftentimes, your gift recipient is merely “whelmed” by your attempt at a kind gesture. Maybe he or she is the person who has everything, or maybe they’re just too darn particular. What’s a person to do?

You’ve learned from your missteps, you’ve tested the waters of gift-giving diversification. You’ve spent more money than you care to admit on presents that just didn’t rock the socks off them. Maybe now you think you’re a more discerning and seasoned giver of gifts. Perhaps this time, you can find that million-dollar idea without spending an amount equal to the national debt. And, just maybe, that laughably affordable gift can actually mean something and be (dare we say it?) creative, and thoughtful! If any of this sounds familiar, read on. This is worth the scroll.

Boatloads of people have found the “secret sauce” of gifting. It’s affordable, classy, and it’s creative. You can buy it without leaving your chair, and you can customize it without needing a degree in graphic design. Any guesses?

We’re talking about personalized silicone bracelets.

pink-silicone-wristband_custom-gift-ideas

We know what you’re thinking: “Aren’t those the LIVESTRONG wristbands everyone wore like 10 years ago?” Well, you’d be correct. But what you may not know is that thousands of couples, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, cave trolls, etc, take to the depths of the internet every month to seek out a personalized wristband for him/her to profess their undying love in a colorful and unique way. These rubber bracelets are easy as pie to design from the comfort of your computer or smartphone. Speaking of which: they aren’t actually rubber, they’re silicone, but it’s a lot easier to describe them as rubber to the uninitiated, so in our book the two are synonymous. Custom made bracelets have that “rubber” feel, but they’re latex-free, so extra points go to you for thinking of a touching gift that won’t trigger any allergies. You’re just all kinds of considerate.

“I don’t feel that creative. How would I personalize a bracelet for my true love?”

Well, first of all, don’t be so hard on yourself—you’re great. Second, this post is for everyone, not just youthful people caught up in twitterpation and boundless passion for life. You may need a personalized wristband for your girlfriend or boyfriend, or maybe you drew names for your family Christmas gift exchange and you got your younger brother, Kenneth. You’re going to need to come up with a snarky quote for a custom bracelet that’ll put that little weasel in his place (in a loving way, of course).

Customizable-wristbands_Pick-a-bandWhether your gift is for someone you love platonically or hopelessly, we’ve got an arsenal of ideas for you to use to make your personalized wristband a home run. We’ve been doing this a long time; since 2004, to be exact. You can imagine the phrases and sayings we’ve seen on silicone wristbands over the years. Some of them have made us laugh, some have made us swoon, and some of them we can’t really repeat out loud.

With our online bracelet maker, you can put just about anything on your wristband, or many wristbands, if you like. That way, you can make it be one of those cute couple silicone bracelet sets so you can wear your heart on your sleeve (you might even consider adding the coordinates of a meaningful location, like where you first met, for an extra special touch).

Custom-Coordinate-Wristbands_Couples-Bracelets

“What should I write on my wristband?”

Ah, the possibilities… For starters, some of our most popular sayings and messages for customizable bracelets are ones like these:

  • “I love my girlfriend”
  • “I love my boyfriend”
  • “True Love Waits”
  • “One Love”
  • “#1 Wife”
  • “#1 Husband”
  • “Love”
  • “I Love You”

I mean, that last one isn’t that original, but why break with the old standby, right? Combine that with some lovely color styles and slide that custom bracelet on and it’ll be super-effective! Additionally, we often see phrases like “I Love Basketball” or “I Love Football”. We get that. Sometimes all you need is the warm embrace of the pigskin to console you from the harsh realities of life. No judgment here.

It's-a-girl-wristband_baby-shower-bracelets

“What are some different ways I can use custom wristbands?”

Great question! Beyond the aforementioned ideas, there are myriad ways to let your creativity burst through in the form of glorious silicone bracelets. Since we’re on the topic of couples and love, here is just a sampling of ideas for uses:

  • Wedding/Engagement Announcements
  • Bachelorette/Bachelor Party Favors
  • Anniversaries
  • Matching His and Hers Wristbands
  • Stocking Stuffers!

Bonus: If bracelets aren’t your jam, we also sell customizable dog tags! They’re another great option, perfect for your boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other, or your dog, of course. We really did try to think of everything.

Hopefully, you’ve learned some things about rubber bracelets, and maybe even yourself. Either way, you should be primed and ready for delivering an impactful gift or show of love with a nice-looking wristband! We’ve got plenty more ideas for you over at Reminderband, so take a look while you’re contemplating how to be the most considerate person ever.

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

DT-Necklace-Silver.png

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

Epileptic-Contour.png

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. Be sure to check out our full lineup on Reminderband.com to find out how awesome our design experience is. Most styles have no minimum order requirement, and many of our add-ons are free.

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!

4 Awesome uses for Tyvek Wristbands

Looking to jazz up your upcoming event but need ideas? Or do you just love our gorgeous Tyvek wristbands, but need a good reason to design some? Here are four awesome ideas for Tyvek bracelets to get you started:

1. Parties or Celebrations

Since clowns seem to be on the outs these days, one of the best ways to amp up a small (or large) party is to design your very own Tyvek bands for ultimate swag effect. Whether it’s for a sweet sixteen bash or a rowdy graduation party, these make for a colorful, and unique handout for everyone to wear at the shindig.

IMG_2351.JPG

Choose from one of our templates and backgrounds, or design your own and upload that magic yourself! Planning for a small group? No problem. We have the lowest minimums anywhere; order just one wristband, if you like! (Invite a friend, though, because a solo party sounds sad.)

2. Concerts and Performances

Want to get the word out about an upcoming performance?  Whether you’re just promoting an event, or using Tyvek for entry tickets and identification, the possibilities are nonstop.

IMG_2350.JPG

 

Tyvek bands can be used to great effect here, and they even double as tickets, with bar codes and sequential numbering offered as an option to add to your design.tyvek_concert2.a82e75e8a953 (1).png

tyvek_concert3.3c5ada89cdfc (1).png

Not for a big venue? That’s okay! These are great for local shows, school performances, a battle of the bands, or even little Rachel’s piano recital.

tyvek_concert.b293a38bd2c6 (1).jpg

Creating the perfect design is half the fun!

3. Festivals and Fairs

Are you in charge of helping to run the local Rennesaince fair? Helping with the County Fair, or local city Festival? Do away with those ugly plain old bracelets and use Tyvek wristbands to make your ticket/entry bracelet into a piece of art. These make for a great advertisement along with a way to identify patrons.

tyvek_theme_park.57e0e86df572 (1).jpg

We’ve got oodles of font and artwork options, so be sure to play around with your design until it really pops!

4. Fundraisers and Awareness

True to our roots, we offer excellent design options for putting on a fundraiser for just about anything, or to raise awareness in your community, or across the country. Unlimited options are at your disposal to strike the perfect chord for an ongoing fundraiser, or a one-night event. Make your message loud and clear!

IMG_2352.JPG

Need them fast? We’ve got speedy production and shipping options available, and we’ll bend over backward to make your wristbands for your event on time. Still unclear? Check out our events page, shoot us an email, give us a call, or hit us up on social media. We’re always happy to chat!

Until next time!

Rubber vs. silicone wristbands

Custom-Silicone-Bracelets-Rainbow-Stack_Customizable-Silicone-Wristbands

A Materials Showdown

Some people think that “rubber bracelets”* and “silicone bracelets” are the same — but the terms are not interchangeable. Rubber and silicone are very different and while the results may look similar in the form of the wristband, the two materials yield very different results in terms of flexibility, durability, and long-term wear.

Why silicone wristbands?

Silicone is stronger and longer-lasting than rubber, meaning that silicone bracelets are stronger and last longer than rubber wristbands or rubber bracelets of comparable size and thickness. Rubber bracelets wear out quickly and break much more easily. Silicone is also recyclable at certain recycling centers. At Reminderband, we make wristbands out of 100% industrial-strength polished silicone.

*not to be confused with rubber band bracelets, which are something else entirely.
