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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

We’ve got a new section of our Idea Gallery over on the Reminderband web site, and we’re showcasing Event Wristbands.

 

 

Reminderband silicone bracelets have been hits at family reunions, community events, races, concerts, birthday parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, and other events. We thought we’d feature some of those band ideas to give inspiration for those looking for a custom, inexpensive souvenir or ticket item for their next event, big or small.

Let us know what you think… are there event or wristband types that we missed that you’d like to see?

School’s out and vacation is on! The first day of summer was officially June 21st. With its arrival comes major summer recreation and major group events. Festivals, races, family reunions, parades, sporting events, fairs, community events… you name it.

Whether you need admission identifiers, memorabilia, souvenirs, a handout, a way to show support, or a fundraising or promotional item, silicone or rubber bracelets can be really useful this time of year. No matter what your summer event, we put together a handy guide for buying bracelets in bulk.

Spot Your Source

What wristband type works best for your event? Tyvek, silicone, paper? Do you want a temporary, disposable wristband or a keepsake/long-lasting promotional tool? Once you Find a list of suppliers that will deliver to your country. (Of course we’re biased towards Reminderband, but if Tyvek is a better fit for your event, by all means look into that.)

Check out possible suppliers ahead of time by comparing prices and quality. The BBB, Yelp, and SiteJabber are good sources for business reviews. Social media sites may also be a good place to read feedback from previous customers. That might help you check out wristband quality and if there are customer service problems, delays, or hidden costs.

If you’re unsure about the security of a site (which is important, especially since if you order from them you’ll be giving them credit card information!), Norton and scanurl.net are free and easy places to check for suspicious activity with the URL of the company site you’re considering.

Design Your Band

Using a designing tool, decide which colors, artwork, styles suit your cause. Reminderband’s wristband design tool instantly generates and renders silicone wristbands as they are designed, so that’s a good one to play with.

Estimate Order Amount

How many are coming to your event? Will you use the bracelets for promotion before or after? Will you give them to family and/or local community members in addition to your event?

“When the event is a fundraiser, especially to support someone in need, we will tell them to order more that what they think they’ll need because often times most of the people who attend will want to wear a band to support the person,” says Stephanie, customer service specialist at Reminderband. “The response is usually higher than the customer’s initial expectations.”

Wristbands are popular, so you might want to order more bracelets in bulk than you are planning for just in case. Plus, especially when making large orders, it’s often cheaper to buy extras as part of your initial order than it is to make a follow-up order, which brings us to our next item: the budget.

Budget

How much do you have in your budget for these handouts? Do they need to pay for themselves? Are you giving them away? Are they part of the cost of entry/a ticket? If you’re fundraising, how much will you be selling each wristband for? Do you value bold, unique design or cost-efficiency more?

These are important questions to consider for your event. Once you have a mass or per-band budget, check out pricing for your chosen company. Reminderband’s pricing chart is here.

Typically, the more you order, the less expensive each bracelet will be. With Reminderband, if you order fifty or more, bracelets are less than a dollar each. In quantities of a thousand or more, they’re a quarter each, making cheap bracelets even cheaper.

Another budget consideration is design. Custom artwork adds .15 a band, and for other unique looks you could add may also affect wristband price.Paying for shipping (especially if you need to rush your order) will also be a factor, so be sure to plan for that (see the next section for details). When calculating price, if the company you choose requires a minimum order or has a mold fee, be sure to incorporate that as well (Reminderband has neither).

Order Ahead of Time

Depending on your bulk bracelet type, be sure to order ahead of time so you can be sure your wristbands arrive on time. Color-fill, orders larger than 500, or international orders add time.

If you do get in a pinch and need bands in a hurry, Reminderband offers some rushed and priority order options. Standard priority orders are delivered in six business days. If you really get in a bind, there’s also a next-day option, where you can get your debossed bands delivered the next business day.

Expedited shipping will cost more, however, so be sure to budget for that if you need it!
