Customizing Your Silicone Bracelets

The first thing that comes into our minds when we hear silicone bracelets are the flat rubber bands that are commonly used by athletes to distinguish what team they represent. These wristbands are also being used by nonprofit and charity organizations to spread the message that they want to convey, or just simply raise awareness on certain causes. Others use these items as effective identification tools. Some use the items as a means of advertising a business or for fashion purposes.

We are all set on where the silicone bracelets are being used. So now we can jump into the conclusion that you want to make a custom wristband for your group or for your personal use. Here are some guidelines and different choices that you can use to create a custom designed wristbands:

There are many options that we can choose from when trying to come up with the ideal design for your custom bracelets. The first one that we need to consider is having a color that would totally represent or would best suit the occasion that you are planning on using the wristbands on. We offer various choices of hues to suit your needs.

There are also these types of bracelets that are glow in the dark and if you prefer, you can even add glitters to it.

BraceletsThen we move on to choosing what style do we use to depict our custom design into the wristbands, and one might be confused of embossed, debossed, printed, and laser-engraved styles. Now, these are important because this will determine how your design would come out after so you might need to check this out first to have your ideal Silicone bracelets.

Debossed Bracelets.

The debossed style is the most commonly used by wristband manufacturers. It is the same style as Lance Armstrong’s Silicone wristbands are. Debossed bracelets are more expensive and take longer to make because they require a mold to be able to generate one. The text or logo that needs to be engraved is recessed down into the silicone without any ink printing so that the design have a subtle appearance.

Embossed Bracelets.

Embossed wristbands are not as common as debossed wristbands. This is an excellent choice if you are considering a more stylish and unique custom silicone bracelet. The customized design, opposite to debossed, is raised up from the silicone without any ink printed on it. Imagine it being somewhat 3D. Since this style also uses mold to be manufactured, the price range and turnaround time for embossed wristband is very similar to that of debossed bracelet.

Ink-Printed Bracelets

Our ink-printed silicone wristbands are by far the most economical choice. This kind of style does not use a mold to create the design. We rather use a template of the custom design instead of a mold. This is generated by having a blank wristband and then use a dye that could penetrate the silicone for a long lasting print.  Our ink-printed bracelets are less expensive with quicker turnaround time compared to the debossed and embossed silicone bracelets.

Laser-Engraved Bracelets

This style shares the same image of what debossed wristbands look like. The design is also recessed down into the band. Our laser-engraved bracelets do not use molds, or template. They are somewhat similar to the ink-printed bracelet which is made by having a blank wristband and then a simple program allows a laser-engraving machine to engrave the custom design into it. Since this type of style doesn’t use molds, expect that it is cheaper and faster to generate than the other styles especially if you need 3,000 or less wristbands.

Choosing the best choice is based solely on your personal preference and to what purpose or occasion you are going to use the silicone wristbands on. I wished that these guidelines have helped you to pick the most suitable design for you from the many custom silicone bracelets that we offer.
