Custom rubber bracelets and silicone wristbands are the ultimate branding and awareness opportunity when you want to promote your brand, campaign, or just give wearers something cool to look at. There’s a reason so many charities such as Breast Cancer Awareness and Red Ribbon Week choose silicone wristbands to spread their message across the globe. It should come as no surprise that some of the most successful awareness campaigns in history have used silicone wristbands.
Sometimes referred to as rubber bracelets, silicone wristbands aren’t just for fundraising. In recent years, many couples have decided to use wedding wristbands as party favors and souvenirs to give to guests. In the past, silicone wristbands have also been used as souvenirs to give away at trade shows or conferences, contest prizes, political campaigns, or even just as fashion accessories.
Types of Imprinted Rubber Bracelets
So what type of rubber bracelet is right for you? We offer several types of customizable silicone bands, each offering their own unique look. Silicone wristbands come in either adult (8 inches long) or child sizing (7 inches long), and both measure ½ inches wide.
Debossed – One of our most popular styles of custom silicone wristbands. Your custom artwork and text is pressed into the surface of the wristband, giving it a sunken-in look. This method does not utilize any ink and the text is the same color as the wristband. Debossing gives wristbands a tactile feel that some wearers enjoy.
Embossed – Text rises above the surface of the wristband so that letters feel like bumps. Like plain debossed silicone wristbands, they do not include ink printing and the text is the same color as the band.
Silkscreen – Simple and bold, your logo or message is printed in ink on the wristband’s surface. The text is neither embossed nor debossed, but the advantage is that silkscreen makes the content highly visible. If you desire maximum exposure, silkscreen wristbands are a good choice.
Silkscreen Embossed – This 3D custom silicone wristband packs a punch. Your custom artwork jumps off the wristband’s surface and then color is silkscreened on top. If you have a design that you want to pop, silkscreen embossed wristbands can help make it more visible.
Color-fill Debossed – The ultimate, high-impact custom silicone wristband. Your custom artwork is debossed so it is impressed beneath the wristband surface, and then ink-injected to add color. The end result is a highly visible and very tactile rubber bracelet that will attract plenty of attention.
