If you are someone who wears a medical identification 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 is our nifty medic alert options that are very customizable, and much more affordable than the alternative. Here are just 4 ideas for some solutions that work great for kids or adults:

The Classic

Since 2004, we’ve been 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 identification wristband. 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.

Dog Tags

If you’re one who prefers to sport something around your neck or on a keychain, we have the 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.

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.

Contour Wristbands

Thick and Classy. The Contour band is an upgraded spin off 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 something extra fashionable as well as practical. 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 have no minimum order requirement, and many of our add-ons are free.

Once school district is handing out more than 70,000 wristbands to promote a healthy lifestyle among its students and serve as a reminder to stay drug and alcohol-free. For more information about Red Ribbon Week, visit redribbon.org/.

It has worked so well that she is now producing more to sell to others. Wristbands work as waterproof, hypoallergenic medical alert bracelets to bring awareness for many conditions and in many environments.
  • One high school is using wristbands to promote its second annual No Swear November. Students at Hazel Park High School in Hazel Park, Michigan will have the opportunity to take the pledge to use positive communication and think about the effect their words have on others, and contributions to “swear jars” will raise money for good causes.

Jennifer from Independence, KY
 

“I found out that my 2-year-old son had a severe peanut allergy and instead of ordering a metal medical alert bracelet for him we decided to order Reminderband wristbands for him, I called the costumer service to see if they had a medical symbol and they did. Come to find out they make three different sizes so they fit on his sippy cups, sports bottles (medium) and his wrist (small). And we even costumized his with different colors, so he gets to pick which one he wears every day!! What a true lifesaver!!”

Heather from Ypsilanti, MI
 

“We really love our Reminderbands! My daughter has diabetes. When I wear my Reminderband, it reminds her to wear her medical alert!”
