Silicone wristbands come in different colors, sizes and patterns and can be further customized with different text options. Types of silicone wristbands include those for promoting charitable causes, brand awareness or fashion.
Silicone wristbands come in standard colors such as green, blue, red, purple and black. Some have one color on the outside and another on the inside. Specialty colors in neon shades are also available, as are wristbands that glow. Silicone swirl is another option. This marbling effect starts with green, blue, pink or red as the base and adds a white swirl. Alternatively the colors can form segments in the band.
The standard size for silicone wristbands is 1/2-inch. However, it's possible to get 1/4-inch, 3/4-inch or 1-inch wristbands as well. Manufacturers can also make the bands so they adjust to the wrist.
Some silicone wristbands have custom text. Manufacturers can deboss words by using an imprint mold that causes the words to recess into the silicone. The recessed words can have color distinct from that of the wristband to make them stand out more. Manufacturers can also use an embossing process that makes the letters protrude roughly 2 millimeters from the surface.
Screen printing in a wide array of colors is another option for lettering. Manufacturers using this method can add the text both to the outside and inside of the wristband.
