Since 2004, we’ve never stopped thinking of new ways to expand our lineup of custom silicone wristbands. Today, we are giving a shoutout to a couple specialty wristbands that have actually been around for awhile, and have been super popular in our long history of making awesome wristbands!

Which is more your style? Tire or golf?

Lots of motocross and biking groups order custom tire bands annually. On the other hand, the golf bands are a great way to memorialize someone or to do a fundraiser or charity event. One thing is for sure–no other wristbands look quite like these!

Our Friday features really run the gamut of types of events, groups, and individuals and causes. Today, we’d like to briefly spotlight one family and their story of support for their father.

Amos Abplanalp is known for being a wonderful friend, neighbor, loving husband, and father, high school teacher, coach, a prison counselor, Scoutmaster, and LDS bishop. He has a reputation for helping others and, here at Reminderband, that’s something we can get behind.

Amos was diagnosed in April 2016 with Stage four Colon Cancer. Despite the daily struggles, he still works to provide for his family. There is great familial and community support and love for him, and everyone is cheering him on in his fight against cancer. The events and updates are chronicled through their blog.

Two runs of wristbands have been ordered up in support of Amos, both touting the #TEAMAMOS hashtag. The first batch was used for a high school fundraiser for the family, which resulted in a sum of $1,200 raised! The second run will be used for awareness. We love this application for the wristbands to support Amos and his family, as well as to spread the awareness to help others!

We wish Amos the and his family the very best. If you would like to support them, check out their gofundme page, and read more about the family’s endeavors on their blog.

Happy Monday!

Today we have just a quick little FYI for those who are thinking of adding that extra special something to their wristband design. As you may already know, we offer a massive assortment of free clipart right on our website. Did you know that we also have the option of imprinting your own artwork or logo right on your wristbands, keychains, or Tyvek? Now you know! Let’s talk a bit about that.

One of the most common uses for a Reminderband is to memorialize someone who has passed. There are quite a few design options from which to choose. Some folks find that it adds just the right amount of class to upload a signature of their loved one for the band to be a more personal memento to family and friends. Here’s how to make it happen:

Take a clear picture of the signature you’d like to use. It works best on white paper, with a head-on angle that’s well-lit. You may want to make it bolder and more visible by tracing over it. Once you get to the second design step, just click to add artwork. You’ll notice there’s an option to upload your own image.

Simply attach the picture of that signature and proceed to finish placing your order–we’ll take care of the rest!

As always, if you have questions about any aspect of the design process, our band specialists are available to help!

Until next time…

Here, at Reminderband, one of the questions we’re often asked (besides why our headquarters is located in Northern Utah, where the air hurts your face) is “What does debossed mean?” You may be reading this and wondering the same thing because, like a man at the hardware store, you didn’t want to ask for help. Well today, you’ve got it easy, because with the myriad of customization options we have on our site, making a decision can be a little overwhelming! We understand, and we’re here to help.

Well today, you’ve got it easy, because we’ve got the answer. With the myriad of customization options we have on our site, making a decision can be a little overwhelming. We understand, and we’re here to help.

Reminderband offers three main imprint styles for our products:

  • Debossed (indented)
  • Embossed (raised)
  • Printed (flat)

That means if you select a Classic or Contour band, which has a debossed imprint style, any text or artwork you select will be indented. If you like to live on the wild side you can add a color-fill to that imprint to give your wristband a glorious contrast so breathtaking, it’ll make people weep (ok, that may have been a slight exaggeration, but you get the idea).

Debossed bands come with the most bang for your buck, but if it’s multicolor imprints you’re after, you might consider doing a printed wristband (or “silkscreen”, as the cool kids sometimes call it) which allows us to get razor-sharp detail in your design for a crisp effect that engraving can’t achieve.

It really depends on your design, and what you plan on doing with your wristbands. We recommend testing all the options with our state-of-the-art builder and viewing this infographic to help you decide.

Good luck designing your wristbands!

Greetings from (snow-covered) Northern Utah! Hopefully, your 2017 is off to a fantastic start. We think we can make it just a bit better by giving you the rundown on one of our favorite products: Printed bracelets.

Read on for a brief Q & A!

screenprint-gradient

  • What makes a screen print wristband different from a Classic band, or one of the other products on your site?
    • Our printed bands have the same great silicone thickness, makeup, and quality, with the main difference being the printing method. Instead of engraving your design, as with our other bracelets, we print on the surface.
  • What’s the advantage of that?
    • Printing on the surface allows us to place an incredible level of detail on the wristbands, using more complex fonts and more intricate artwork that wouldn’t normally work well on an engraved wristband. It also allows us to do multi-color imprints with ease, such as a logo that is two colors, and text that is another. Because of the process we use, we can also produce printed bands faster than color-filled wristbands, saving a few days’ time for production.
  • They probably cost more, and have a high minimum, right?
    • Wrong! Printed wristbands are the most inexpensive way to get a color imprint. You can save as much as 35 cents per wristband over the Classic. Since there is no engraving, we pass that savings on to you. And our minimum is one of the lowest anywhere, at just five bands.
  • How do I design one? Is it a different process?

Have more questions? Feel free to give our super-friendly customer support team a call at 800-922-5401 or shoot an email over to us at customerservice@reminderband.com. You can take a look at our screen printed wristbands page here. Until next time!

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new wristband… the Contour Band! To celebrate, we’re offering 20 percent off any Contour band purchase for the next two weeks, until September 9.

Contour

The Contour Band is a little thicker and more rounded than our other bands, giving it a distinct shape and outline (hence the name). Both sturdier and more deluxe than the Classic Band, it has a jewelry-like shape. Even though the outline is slightly convex, the Contour band can still be debossed with custom lettering or get color-fill, just like our other wristbands.

To get the discount, use the promo code 2015CONTOUR20 at checkout on your Contour Band order. (As usual, the discount does not include shipping, tax, or other add-ons like color-fill or custom artwork.)

Check it out in our 3D viewer and let us know what you think!

Individuals and organizations across the country are using custom wristbands to promote religious and spiritual causes — with more than just the classic WWJD bracelets. Here are some ideas for using custom wristbands in your church group or faith practice:

* Create a personal religious reminder

Reminderband wristbands are completely customizable, meaning you can choose your own color and size as well as phrase, symbol or image. Whether it is a scripture, a name, a question or other meaningful words, there is no minimum order, so you can create your own unique religious wristband and order between one and one million of them.

* Fundraise for church or community

Wristbands can make a great fundraising tool for church repairs, buildings or community members in need.

* Unify a youth group, club or congregation

* Memorialize an activity or service project 

* Hand out at vigils, devotionals or conferences

Religious wristbands make a great reminder of an event or way to distinguish/admit attendees and promote unity.

* Spread awareness of a spiritual message

Wristbands have been used to encourage prayer and support among communities. In Indiana, schools, communities and churches rallied around a girl critically injured with the message to “Pray for Emily,” using signs and wristbands to demonstrate their support.

* Raise money for a cause:

Selling religious wristbands can be a great way to raise money for a cause, such as aid after a natural disaster or poverty alleviation. The inexpensive wristbands can be designed with a custom message and then sold to benefit a religious or humanitarian cause. Wristbands are cool and desirable and promote a faithful message even after the money has been raised.

* Express your faith

Religious wristbands can be a conversation-starter and a subtle way to show your belief. The popularity of T-shirts and jewelry with faith messages is increasing, and custom wristbands are an inexpensive, infinitely unique way to express faith.

Here are some ways previous Reminderband wristband users have used custom religious wristbands:

“I ordered wristbands for my church. The turn around time was unbelievable and the bands were perfect. I will be ordering again in the next few weeks and have recommended your company to others that have placed orders as well. Great job and thank you.”

Doug from St. Paul, MN
 

“Have used Reminderbands the last few years for our church youth camp. We are very pleased with the product and the ordering process.”

Cigi from Hobbs, NM
 

“I have placed 4 orders total. The bracelets I ordered have become a local hit stretching from Florida panhandle to parts of Georgia and Alabama. I use it as a tool to get the message out there to ‘Put God First.’ I will be ordering many more in the future… Thanks for an awesome job.”

The passing of loved ones is the most difficult and universal of all things. Many people use custom wristbands as a way to remember and cherish those who have passed on.

memorial wristbands

Custom memorial wristbands have been used to thank those who lent support, commemorate an anniversary, and fundraise for a foundation or memorial scholarship. Custom wristbands are inexpensive to give out at funerals, vigils, and other events, or can be ordered in small amounts for a personal group of family or friends. Silicone memorial wristbands are safe for everyday wear and long-lasting, beautiful and customizable.

Memorial wristbands have been used for Memorial Day, to create a memorial scholarship, to remember a toddler and bring awareness for Shaken Baby Syndrome, and memorialize a beloved football player.

Here are some reviews from customers who used Reminderband to create memorial wristbands:

“We have ordered twice now for funerals so it was a rush both times. The bands have been excellent each time. We have been extremely grateful for the compassion and willingness to help us out.”

Kyla from Lakeside, CA

“I have recently ordered wristbands for my passing boyfriend. Another company I had dealt with has been and still is giving me a very hard time when I tried sending them back for their poor quality. After explaining the situation to Reminderband, they not only took the time to go over the order with me, but I was also contacted after I received the bracelets to make sure I was happy. Everyone loves the bracelets. It’s one last thing that we can all carry around as a reminder of him, and Reminderband did an amazing job!”

Elisa from Cortlandt Manor, NY

“Chris, at Reminderband, was absolutely incredible to work with. I had called several other companies, but none were considerate of our situation (a student death), and none were willing to work with us in the time crunch we were in (we needed them shipped the next day and in our hands a day later for the visitation). Not only did Chris fulfill his duties, but he went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our order. I have raved about him to several people because I am truly THANKFUL for what he did for our school… I am SO impressed with Reminderband and we will DEFINITELY be going with them in the future!!”

Katie from Adams, MN

Having a special saying that will lift your spirit in the time of any hardship, kept close with you, provides a gift that goes straight to the soul in a time of need. Having a wristband with a personal message does just that. A wristband is also a great way to raise money for your church all year round and promote a constant awareness of your church’s needs.

With our wristbands you can order in small or large quantities and provide any phrase or logo you wish. This will allow you to have bracelets for church camps, church sports teams, or simply to remember your church, your values and what you stand for.

A religious wristband that someone can wear and talk about is a great way to get a church’s need out to the people, as well as provide a way for members to introduce the church to others.

“I’ve placed orders that aren’t very big, to raise money for our church and the convenience of being able to do that has made it possible to let our small youth group feel like they are involved and can contribute”

“The wristbands arrived this past week and they look great! Both phrases with their different fonts and color fills really make the bands special. Thank you so much; I can’t wait to share them with my friends!”
