Canines-n-Kids used Reminderband wristbands as a giveaway to participants at their “Paws for a Cure Summit” last summer in Washington, DC, and at their first annual “Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer” in October of 2017, in Brambleton, VA.
Man’s Best Friend Is A Kid’s Best Friend in Cancer Most people don’t realize that both children and dogs develop several cancers in common including bone cancer, brain cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia.
Canines-N-Kids Foundation states: “16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year. With only three new kids’ cancer drugs in 20 years, there is little money behind new drugs; only 4% of NIH’s budget goes to pediatric oncology. Some 4,000,000 dogs in the US are diagnosed with cancer. 50% of all dogs over the age of ten die from their disease and treatment options are limited for man’s best friend.” Through treating cancer in dogs, we can better learn how to help children with those same cancers. A cure for one aids in curing the other.

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!
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!
For more ideas on how to customize your next masterpiece and to share your message with the world, head over to Reminderband today and see just how creative you can get!
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!
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!
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.
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 email@example.com. You can take a look at our screen printed wristbands page here. Until next time!
Silicone has been our mainstay for 12 years, but we’re excited to announce the addition of Tyvek wristbands to the Reminderband repertoire. And we can’t help but brag: we’ve got the best Tyvek wristband builder on the Internet.
Design your own custom, professional-quality wristbands by choosing custom text, colors, and graphics, or uploading your own artwork with our easy-to-use builder. They will be printed in HD on durable, waterproof, and authentic DuPont Tyvek.
Also brag-worthy: we offer the smallest quantities of Tyvek available. (“Smallest quantities?” you say. “Wouldn’t you want larger quantities?”) Well, we offer large quantities too, but most Tyvek sellers require a minimum order of 100 bands or more. Our minimum is just one sheet: 10 bands. That way you don’t have to order more than you need, saving you money. We also don’t charge a setup fee, saving you more money.
So that’s our big Tyvek bombshell! Keep us in mind if you’ve got an event, cause, or business that could use custom disposable wristbands. Let us know if there’s patterns, fonts, or images you’d like to see that aren’t already in our builder. Happy designing!
This page serves as a sampler of fundraising bracelet ideas. Whether you are using wristbands for a fun run, a fundraising event, a prize, or just as a thank-you for contributors to your cause, silicone bracelets can be a great fundraising and awareness tool. We’ve drawn up some sample bands for causes such as heart disease, suicide prevention, texting and driving, cancer, and supporting sports and school clubs.
Use our gallery to get ideas, serve as a starting point, or further customize bands for your cause. (Or you can also always design your own.)
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?
Happy holidays! We’re celebrating at Reminderband by offering a discount. Use promo code CMOND14 for 15% off the base price on any wristband order today. This discount does not include shipping, which is the usual rate, or extras such as second-side or color-fill.
We love hearing about how your causes and how you use Reminderband wristbands. In case you missed it, here’s a roundup of the featured causes of the last month:
For Halloween, Reminderband featured a ghostly cause! Doylestown Cemetery in Doylestown, PA had a special Halloween night graveyard ghost tour! Proceeds from the Historic Doylestown Cemetery Walking Tours are used to clean and repair tombstones and memorial art in this 160+ years old Victorian cemetery that have been neglected, weather-worn, or damaged. Reminderband wristbands were given out at the Halloween ‘Ghostly Nights’ Tour as a spooky souvenir.
Reminderband was excited to contribute to care packages for women in the Cache Valley, UT community diagnosed with breast cancer through the Logan Regional Hospital mammography department. Malouf organized the project and we were honored to be a part of this great project and wonderful cause. Included as part of the care packages were cancer bracelets.
We also love Team Riley. 11-year-old Riley was diagnosed with stage 4 clinical group 4 alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma this summer. Friends, family, and strangers around the world are using his Facebook page to send messages of support. Many are also sporting #teamriley cancer bracelets. Drop a photo or encouraging message by his page for him and his family.
Remarkably Rare Designs was also featured this month on our Facebook page. After Emmery was diagnosed with Alagille Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects her liver, heart, kindeys and more, her parents began a line of apparel to help encourage those affected by rare disorders called Remarkably Rare. Instead of a traditional walk or rally, they had a virtual walk for the Alagille Alliance by selling Reminderband wristbands across the globe here and encouraging supporters to post photos on social media using the hashtags #algs #alagilleawareness #teamemmery #forabetterlife

A roundup of news articles featuring innovative wristband uses from around the world!
This week begins Red Ribbon Week in the United States, a week-long alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign. 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/.
A consultant at the Royal Derby Hospital in the UK won a prestigious health care award for the hospital’s use of wristbands to indicate how much oxygen patients need. The color-coded system ensures patients are not administered too much oxygen, which can be dangerous for some conditions, and are an easy way for professionals to determine the correct amount.
A mother made a wristband for her son to wear while swimming to inform staff and other swimmers that he was hearing-impaired. The wristband helps ensure safety and independence. 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.
