Do hotels use Vinyl Wristbands?
- Vinyl wristbands are the best identity product for use at hotels as they can be worn for the length of a guests stay. Plastic bands are highly durable and can be worn for weeks or even months. They are used to identify guests by clearly indicating the guests board basis. The hotel can then inform staff of which areas certain guests can use to eat, drink, or enter. Vinyl bands are waterproof and also tamperproof, which gives them ideal traits for use in pools or spas where chlorine is likely to be encountered. Hotels can add their logo, text and website onto the bands for added exposure, security and marketing!
- Vinyl wristbands are almost exclusively found at hotels but can also be found at long term events that take place over more than a 48 hour period. They can be worn for days and weeks and that makes them ideal for attendees at trade fairs or conferences that can sometimes span a week or 2. Tabbed wristbands are often used in marketing activations where the tab is exchanged for a gift or experience.
Vinyl Wristbands Summary:
Bars and Nightclubs occasionally use tabbed Vinyl bands for special events with free drinks available. The bands are fitted with detachable ‘tabs’ which can be redeemed at the bar refreshments. Promoters commonly use these when guests are entitled to a certain number of drinks as part of the entrance fee – or as a marketing activity. Vinyl wristbands have a self sealing easy to use lock and that means the cannot be transferred when applied – ideal for controlling entrance at Bars and Nightclubs.
Music Festivals and other multi day events often use Vinyl Wristbands which can be worn for the duration of the event without having to be replaced. Tyvek Wristbands can only be worn for up to 48 hours and that is not sufficient for many festivals. As the band cannot be transferred it also ensures the security of the event. For long term festivals the most commonly used identity product are fabric wristbands – made of woven thread – that can be customized and worn for months.
Charities most commonly opt for a more flexible wristband that can be removed and reapplied. This makes the vinyl option unlikely to work for most charity events. Vinyl Wristbands could work for charity events or fund raising marathons lasting more than 2 days. More traditionally charities looking to raise awareness tend to use Silicone Wristbands, which can be fully customized to include logos and text in full colour.
Vinyl Wristbands are the perfect product for Hotels and that is why they are commonly found at hotels and on guests arms. Plastic wristbands can include the name and logo of the hotel printed to make it easier for staff to confirm the identity of guests. Hotels commonly use different coloured bands to differentiate between the board basis of guests. As most hotel stays last between 7-14 days the vinyl band comfortably lasts the duration of the stay and will not need to be replaced.
The use of vinyl bands at events will only make sense if the duration is more than 48 hours. If not, then a normal tyvek band would normally suffice and is a cheaper option. However if the event is lasting mroe than two days then a plastic band is the best option and can be worn for weeks. They are tamperproof and waterproof and cannot be transferred once applied. These traits make them ideal to control entrance at venues to clearly verify attendees who can gain access.

Tabbed Vinyl Wristbands
Finally at the bottom is an image of a tabbed vinyl wristband. This product is available with 3,4,5,6 or 7 tabs depending on the requirements of each customer. Normally they are used in situations where the wearer of the wristband is entitled to a certain amount of food or drink at a venue or event. Examples of where this product is used would be say at an office event where each guest is allowed 3 or 4 drinks for free and it is controlled via the tabs on the wristband. Each time they order a drink then they ‘pay’ using a tab – and it is then removed from the wristband. Once all of the tabs are used, then the complimentary drinks are finished. The tabs can be printed with any icons such as food, drinks or even other icons or text as applicable. Tabbed vinyl wristbands are slightly more expensive then the normal L shaped bands but do offer an extra layer of security at events.
