What are Silicone Wristbands?
Simply put, cheap silicone wristbands are usually worn around the wrist to show support or raise awareness about a current issue or charity. Some may also refer to them as rubber wristbands, charity wristbands or athlete wristbands. These all describe the same product: a lightweight wristband made from plastic which usually has some text printed or inscribed on the surface. To make these wristbands, a mould needs to be made using silicone as the base material. Colour is added later. Customers may chose any colour and then add logos or text to the surface using one of three different methods. Please visit our silicone wristband page for more details on these different types of finishes to help you chose the best one for your design.
These cheap custom silicone wristbands are extremely durable and can be worn for months without any tearing or colours fading. Their durability is what makes them a favourite for charities and organisations to raise awareness about their brand. They can be worn while swimming and in direct sunlight which also makes them ideal for kids. They can easily be removed and put back on when necessary. In this blog, you will find 5 easy steps to design your own wristband using our own online designer tool. Below are some images of custom silicone wristbands we have made for customers over the years
Why do athletes wear wristbands?
Some athletes have in recent years started wearing silicone wristbands to show support for any organisations or charities they want to help. Probably one of the most famous athletes to wear a silicone wristband regularly is Lance Armstrong who used to wear the bands to promote his LIVESTONG charity although recently, many other famous athletes and celebrities have started using these bands to show support for their favourite charities. Sports teams are also known to create personalised wristbands with the names of their most prominent players for the fans to wear with pride! We would love to be able to fulfil any order, no matter the size, however due to setup costs to create the mould, the minimum order for custom silicone wristbands we can take is 100 bands.

One one of the best selling points for silicone wristbands is their durability. Their longevity makes them one of our most popular products since they can be worn for months without being ripped or losing any colour. If taken care of, these cheap wristbands can even last years. Printed wristbands can suffer from some wear and tear around the print after a number of months if worn daily and in different conditions. The premium debossed + colourfill finish bands are known to last for years as the engraved part of the wristband is filled with ink which protects it from the elements.
