Colors and sizes: where to start

We get it. We’ve put you in a difficult position.

You’ve come to Reminderband to design something for your event┬ábut with so many awesome options, you’re at a crossroads. Don’t worry! We’re way ahead of it and we’ve already thought up some helpful resources so you can pin down your colors and sizes for your wristbands–whatever the occasion.

First up, let’s talk colors. If you are designing something for a cause, event, fundraiser, or awareness, and you’re just not quite sure what colors to go with, we’ve got a great reference point for you. Some causes and awareness movements have a commonly associated color, but some situations are less obvious. Our Color Guide gives a basic run-through of our traditional stock colors and the general moods and meaning of each color, to help you decide how to best convey your message.

So, you’ve nailed the color and look of your wristbands; stellar work! Now, what sizes to choose? That’ll depend on who will be wearing them. Our recommendation is that most folks up to about 190 lbs can fit comfortably in a Medium-sized wristband. Adult males or folks who want a bit more room on the wrist would probably be better served with a Large. Elementary school age kids can usually fit in a Small with no issues.

And YES, you CAN mix your sizes within your order at no extra cost!

If you want to get a better feel for exactly how big each size really is, you can use our sizing guide. This will allow you to cut out a strip and fit it around the wrist to determine the best sizes to order. You can view and download it here.

What size wristband should I get?

Silicone wristbands are a hit with charities, fundraisers, memorials, sporting teams, and family reunions — just to name a few. But people come in lots of different shapes and sizes, and so do their wrists. Silicone wristband sizing, especially when ordering for a large event, can be confusing.


How big are wristbands?

Reminderbands® come in three sizes: large, medium and child, to make wristband sizing a cinch. The large bands are 8 3/8 inches around (21.3 cm) and will fit most adults and large-framed teenagers. The medium bands are 7 3/8 (18.7 cm) inches around and generally fit ages six and up, including most teenagers and small-framed women. The child bands are 5 7/8 inches around (15 cm) and typically fit children 4-6 years old. (Wristbands are not intended for children younger than four years old.)

If measurements aren’t helping you, try printing this document, cut out the strips of paper and try them on to see how the size fits. (When you print, be sure to scale at 100 percent). Keep in mind that silicone wristbands do stretch to get on the wrist, but wristbands shouldn’t stretch while they are on the wrist.
