Whether it's charities, businesses or individuals championing a specific cause - people all over the world use custom wristbands every single day for a wide variety of different things.
Custom wristbands have been used to spread awareness and fundraise for cancer, aids, MS, and other rare lesser known illnesses - all to great effect.
One of our customers raising money for a local hospice reported to us that they managed to raise £12,000 in one year through custom printed wristbands alone!
It's evident that custom wristbands are great for fundraising, but what else are they great for?
Due to our custom wristbands being made of silicone, they have the amazing ability of being able to stretch and fit over objects. This has led to them being used for packaging purposes, with custom wristbands displaying a companies logo and contact details aroung a box - leaving an extra gift for their customers, and thus increasing brand awareness and customer retention, all at the same time.
So how does the custom wristband system work?
It's simple really, first off you start by sending us your design details, preferred quantites & any relevant information or artwork. (Such as logos or preferred colours of silicone / ink).
Our professional in-house designer then produces a visual order summary of your custom wristbands or other products for your further consideration, which also includes a quote with extra options for additional reference.
Once you've approved the order, we issue an online invoice which can be paid via PayPal, Bank Card or BACs - from there the average delivery time is usually around 6 working days!
So now you know the basics, it's time to delve deeper into the topic!
