Hotel wristbands – Custom printed plastic vinyl wristbands for hotels and events
Vinyl wristbands offer the most secure and long lasting option and are very popular with hotels and resorts that rely on the durability of wristbands. Our hotel wristbands are lightweight but extremely resilient to wear and tear and can be worn for weeks at a time without the need for replacement. The print method ensures that the design remains unblemished even after exposure to sun, sea, sand, spas and any other activity at such venues.
There are various types of vinyl wristbands including the wide faced variety which allows for more information to be printed. Choose from a multitude of colour options and be safe in the knowledge that the closing mechanism is tamperproof. Hotels often print one design in various colour options and use the colours to differentiate between guests; Red = All inclusive, Blue = Bed & breakfast, Yellow = Half board, Green = room only, etc. Vinyl wristbands are also a great option when the duration to be worn is longer than 1-2 days and as such Tyvek would not be suitable.
Vinyl Wristbands for Hotels
Summary: Many Hotels use Wristbands and many have opted for Vinyl Wristbands as they are the perfect fit for their guests. Guesthouses and Hotels are often trying to identify the different board basis of guests. Vinyl bands can be colour coded to confirm the basis of a guest. Guests will be able to access restaurants, bars and spa facilities by displaying their Vinyl band to hotel personnel.
- Vinyl Wristbands will easily last the duration of an average holiday which means they will not need replacing during an typical hotel stay.
- Hotels can colour-code Wristbands and differentiate between the different board basis for guests. Colour can also distinguish whether the wearer is 18+ for the purposes of serving alcoholic drinks, etc.
- Unlike Tyvek Wristbands, Vinyl Wristbands are not available next day so would need to be ordered in advance to ensure delivery.
- Due to their extended useful life Vinyl Wristbands are more costly than Tyvek Wristbands.
Fabric Wristbands for Hotels
Summary: Many Hotels use a combination of Vinyl and Tyvek Wristbands for their residents and day guests. Some are switching to Fabric which they believe are more Eco Friendly. Printed Fabric Wristbands can carry complex designs and have more flexibility than Vinyl Wristbands which are generally printed in one colour. Fabric wristbands can easily be worn for weeks or even months meaning they can be used in hotel environments for long duration. Many guests reportedly prefer Fabric Wristbands and find them more comfortable than Vinyl Wristbands.
- Fabric Wristbands are quite economical when ordered in bulk quantities for Hotel stays.

Tyvek Wristbands for Hotels
Summary: Tyvek Wristbands are used extensively at Hotels – Often for events taking place inside the hotel or facilities. Guests attending Conferences, Weddings, Day by the pool and spa facilities are often given a Tyvek Wristband to show the date/event they are attending. The customised tags offer a cheaper and quicker alternative to the Vinyl wristbands which are usually reserved for residents.
- Tyvek wristbands are well suited for short term events or functions taking place at a hotel or at facilities within the Hotel.
- Paper Tags are waterproof so can easily be used around a pool or spa facilities while remaining fully functioning.
- With a maximum life expectancy of 48 hours, Tyvek Wristbands are not well suited for hotel or guest house stays longer than this duration.
- Tyvek Wristbands would need to be customised in order to keep tabs on the events or functions. Plain Tyvek Wristbands are widely available and people could gain access without having permission to do so.
Silicone Wristbands for Hotels
Summary: Silicone Wristbands are not frequently used by Hotels as they have few characteristics which are useful in that environment. It is usually the case that Hotels and Guesthouses are trying to limit/control the number of guests accessing benefits offered at the premises. As silicone wrist bands can be transferred between guests this defeats the purpose. Rubber bands could be used as part of a marketing campaign by the Hotel but will rarely be used to control access to restaurants, bars, etc.
- Silicone Wristbands are very comfortable and can be worn/removed at the discretion of the person wearing the band.
- The life span of a Silicone Wristband is several months or even years.
- Silicone Wristbands are transferable which is not ideal in a Hotel or Guesthouse environment.
- For the same or similar price Hotels can find more suitable options which provide additional security.
