Fabric Festival Woven Wristbands
Personalized fanbands for events

Fabric wristbands (also known as woven bands or fanbands) are a great, long lasting and secure option for your event logistical needs. They are a flexible product with various types of materials and also locking mechanisms. This means the product can be tailored to the specific use depending on the event.

We produce custom fabric wristbands in three types of finish; either silkscreen, woven or sublimated. The woven bands offer a classic feel and look and are made of up to 8 coloured threads giving that ‘handmade’ feel. These type of wristbands are commonly associated with music festivals and are one of our most popular products. The satin cloth material used for sublimated wristbands is produced with a transfer direct onto the band which means intricate designs and even gradients can be added to the wristband.

Fabric Wristbands are very difficult to counterfeit and offer a secure and extremely durable option. They can be worn for weeks and even months at a time and are a good eco friendly wristband. Many customers use Fabric wristbands for long term use and as a superior product to Tyvek wristbands.

Can Fabric Wristbands be worn at Festivals?

  • Both fabric wristbands music festivals have exploded in popularity in recent years and they are synonomous with each other. Each festival has its own branding and image which they can easily transfer onto either woven wristbands or sublimated wristbands. Organisers can add their logo and text in full colour and even add social media icons or official hashtags. RFD wristbands are also very popular for festivals to control purcahses electronically via the chip in the band. 
  • Fabric wristbands are the most durable product on the market and can be worn for weeks or months without showing any signs of wear and tear. The barrel lock ensures that the wristband cannot be transferred once worn and this ensures the security of any music festival. Festival wristbands are completely waterproof and lightweight which makes them ideal for outdoor settings such as campsites and festival arenas whatever the weather!

Can Fabric Wristbands be reused?

  • Clients looking at Fabric wristbands need to decide if they wish for the band to be locked once worn. We offer different locking mechanisms including metal, plastic and even bamboo! Woven wristbands are supplied with a plastic barrel lock as standard and this ensures that the wristband cannot be removed once applied. For those who require the band to be removed and reused there are metal and plastic beads which enable the wearer to slide the wristband off. 

  • Sublimated wristbands are made from premium material and are an ideal long term product. The life span of a fabric wristband is measured in weeks and months rather than days and fabric wristbands are a secure option for organsiers to control entrance to any events. Whilst tyvek wristbands offer a way of identifying guests they can only be worn for up to 2 days and as such cannot be worn for longer term use such as multi day events, festivals and conferences.

Summary of Fabric Wristbands:

Use in Nightclubs: 3/5

Fabric wristbands are such a popular product due mainly to their durability and fact that they can be worn for weeks at a time without degrading. This positive point is mostly lost for nightclub operators where events are mostly taking place over just a few hours and do not require a longer term solution. Customized Tyvek wristbands are more suited for this type of short term use such as to identify persons on a guestlist or with table bookings etc. Of course, fabric wristbands can be used for specific events or for VIP guests as they are a superior product when compared to the paper wristbands. Nightclubs would be best served by sublimated wristbands as this type of finish allows for fine details to be printed including detailed logos and even gradient effects.

Use at Festivals: 5/5

Fabric wristbands it seems are almost tailor made for such events that they are infact sometimes called Festival wristbands when people are talking about them! Organisers of festivals are looking for a product that is long lasting and will not need replacing over a long duration of time and fabric wristbands provide this. They are also waterproof which ensures that the band will not degrade even when subjected to showers / rain / mud or any other inclement weather that can be expected. The barrel lock option ensures that the wristband cannot be removed once applied and this ensures that only those who have tickets can gain entry to the festival site. Woven wristbands have eco-friendly components and this appeals to organisers looking to keep their festival carbon neutral where possible.

Use by Charities: 3/5

Charities have such a wide variety of potential uses for wristbands, that it depends on the event or intended use as to whether fabric wristbands will be the ideal product. The product that comes to mind when thinking of charities is Silicone wristbands which are used for fundraising events or awareness campaigns. These bands can be removed and reapplied by the wearer which is a great plus point for volunteers or those supporting a charity. Fabric wristbands can also be removable when selecting a plastic or metal bead and they offer a cheaper unit price on any orders of over 1,000 units. Another plus point that woven wristbands offer is that they can be used for both adults and children, whilst silicone bands would need to be ordered in a number of different sizes.

Use in Hotels: 3/5

Hotels tend to use wristbands to easily identify their long term guests and the board basis that they are entitled to. Traditionally the product that many businsess in the hospitality sector have used is Vinyl wristbands which are both durable and also waterproof. Customized vinyl wristbands are slightly more expensive then fabric wristbands and also have a longer lead time in production. As such Fabric wristbands are a viable alternative for use in hotels and offer the same security and waterproof traits that are provided by vinyl wristbands. The standard barrel lock ensures that the wristband cannot be removed once applied and sublimated wristbands offer print in full colour including a logo and website. The use of fabric as Customized hotel wristbands is growing slowly and we expect it to continue.

Use at Events: 4/5

With so many different type of events taking place at venues across Europe on a daily basis, we are ideally placed to offer our suggestion as to which wristband is most suitable. If the event is short term and lasting up to 48 hours then Tyvek wristbands are the cheapest and normally sufficient. However if the event is taking place across multiple days or even longer then fabric wristbands are an ideal solution. Customized event wristbands offer the opportunity to fully personalize the product and include logos and text in full colour. A barrel lock option will ensure that the wristband cannot be removed once it is applied and enable organisers to control entrance to the event. And should it be required that the band can be removed during or after the event, then a simple bead lock will allow this.
