Custom wristbands are incredibly useful promotional products because they are effective in promoting a company or organisation’s message and come in an almost endless variety of colours and kinds. They are all made of silicone rubber and used across the board by both businesses and non-profit organisations to promote a certain image or message. There are some things that are worth knowing about these silicone wristbands however, including how they are produced and what different types they come in so that you can order the best ones for you.
The vast majority of promotional wristbands are made from pure silicone, although sometimes other synthetic rubbers are used. The reason that silicone is used is because it has many properties that are advantageous. Silicone is not only easy to mould, which makes it ideal for wristbands, but it is also resistant to water and heat, although still susceptible to breakdown from UV light.
Getting technical, silicone rubber is cut into strips and then moulded into the shape of a wristband, but not before being treated with coloured dyes to give it the desired image. This process allows it to be crafted exactly as wanted for wristband purposes.
Although all silicone wristbands have the same basic properties, there are some variations between them. The main differences lie in how the text and images are projected into them. The most popular model is the debossed kind, which imposes the wording directly into the mould. By contrast, the embossed kind has the words protruding slightly out of the wristband.
You could also design these custom wristbands with a different coloured text than the one that composes the rest of the band. This can be done either through debossing the text with a different coloured mould or through screen printing.
Silicone wristbands are excellent promotional products to use for spreading the message of your Perth company or organisation. Most of them are made of pure silicone, but they come in a great variety of customised options for etching or embossing the lettering in. However you design them, they are sure to spread your message far and wide.
