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.
In short, custom silicone wristbands are extremely versatile and a great option for school events, gifts, support, fundraisers, and more!

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.
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!
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!
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.
