Custom Wristbands

Custom wristbands are an affordable, unique opportunity to raise awareness for a charity, manage security at a highly-trafficked event, or even advertise your business. They’re durable, secure, and even tamper-proof. Do you require a wristband that cannot be taken off and reapplied to someone else? We have you covered with our specially formulated adhesive on our custom wristbands!

Here’s a look at each of the custom wristbands options you’ll find at UK Wristbands and everything you need to know to decide between the different types:

Tyvek Wristbands  

Our lowest priced option, Tyvek Wristbands are available in 15 different colours to match the theme of your event or company brand. They are priced as low as £7 per 100 wristbands which makes them affordable for just about every budget. What can you use Tyvek Wristbands for? Here are some of the most common uses of this style of custom wristband:

  • Wristbands to mark individuals who have paid admission fees to an event
  • Wristbands to mark individuals who are of legal drinking age
  • Wristbands that clearly label different access levels; for example, backstage access at a concert, or pre-paid rides at a carnival versus admission-only attendees
  • Wristbands to designate donors to specific charities or causes
  • Sequential numbering of wristbands allows you to also use them as a raffle or give-away. Simply choose a random number and whoever has a wristband with that number on it, wins!

Tyvek Wristbands are made from a paper product and are most suitable for one-time use. However, they can be successfully used for up to three days. The unique paper is waterproof, tear-proof, and tamper-proof.

There are different width sizes of Tyvek Wristbands available, although all bands are made to fit all ages and sizes of people:

  • ¾” width
  • 1” width

If you are printing multiple lines of text on your custom wristbands, we recommend going with the 1” width wristband. If you are using a simple logo or one line of text, you can opt for the narrow wristband at ¾” width.  You can add up to two lines of text on the 1” wide wristbands or a single line of text and a small logo on the ¾” wide wristbands.

We make it easy to custom design your Tyvek Wristband. You can use a variety of font styles for your message, choose from our standard logos and images, or upload your unique artwork.

Vinyl/Plastic Wristbands

Our vinyl/plastic wristbands are an even stronger option than Tyvek. These wristbands are available in a variety of colours as well, 12 different colors to be exact, and are suitable for long-term events where you need people to wear them for one to three weeks at a time!

The background colour of your wristband does not affect the pricing. They are designed for single use, meaning they are the ultimate in security when it comes to wristbands. To remove a vinyl or plastic wristband, you will need to cut it off! There is no way to reattach the wristband once it is cut off the recipient, so you won’t have to worry about people removing their wristband and putting it on someone else.

While you cannot currently print text or logos on our vinyl/plastic wristbands, you can still use them to indicate different levels of access at an event or different age groups simply by designating one colour for each group of people you need to identify at a glance. Verify eligibility once for each event, and then just check which color wristband they’re wearing for the rest of the event.

Vinyl/plastic wristbands are an exceptional value at £9.99 for 100 L-Shaped vinyl wristbands with button studs or £59.99 for 1,000 wristbands.

If you are creating custom wristbands with your logo or text over a background colour, it is important to remember that the color of your text or artwork will change based on the background colour of your wristband. It is recommended that you choose a white wristband if the colour of your logo or text is important to your brand as the logo colors will look different or may not show up at all on certain background colours. Alternatively, you can make your artwork black or white and choose just about any colour background for your wristband with great success!
