Custom Woven Wristbands vs. Silicone Wristbands: Which One to Choose?

If your event is right around the corner, and you still haven’t decided which type of wristband you should go for, this article is perfect for you. We will be shedding light on two of our most sought-after wristbands: the custom woven wristbands and the silicone wristbands. Which one is best? Well, that depends on your event type and personal preference. Let’s deep dive into these two great options so that you can zero in on your perfect choice!

Which Type of Wristband Should You Choose for Your Event?

Custom Woven Wristbands

Custom woven wristbands are also often called fabric or festival wristbands and can be personalized with your logos, patterns, or catchphrases, offering an unparalleled chance to promote your brand distinctively. If you’re aiming for a simple but durable solution for your conference, festival, or other multi-day event, these wristbands might be the ideal choice. MyZone Printing custom woven wristbands are very comfortable, water-resistant, stretch resistant and come equipped with a tamper-proof locking tooth to keep admissions secure!

Silicone Wristbands

On the other hand, silicone wristbands are a great, cost-effective way to market your event. MyZone Printing offers up to 15 different options of solid colors, which can be debossed or printed with your own designs, logos, or text. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more sober, you can opt for plain silicone bands.

So which one should you go for? 

The custom-woven wristbands offer a unique way to market your event. The personalization option is a definite pro for this option. On top of that, cloth bands are harder to come across at events, so you would be adding a layer of exclusivity to your event. However, the silicone bands are the better alternative if you’re looking for a more economical option. There are many options, whether plain or colored and even glow in the dark.

4 Frequently Asked Questions About Wristbands

  • How do I care for your woven wristband to ensure it lasts longer?

To prolong the life of your woven wristband, avoid excessive exposure to sunlight and harsh chemicals. If it gets dirty, gently hand wash it with mild soap and let it air dry.

  • Are the silicone wristbands hypoallergenic?

Yes, our silicone wristbands are made from 100% pure silicone, which is generally considered hypoallergenic. They are latex-free, making them suitable for most attendees, including those with latex allergies.

  • Do the silicone wristbands come in glow-in-the-dark options?

Yes, we offer glow-in-the-dark silicone wristbands, which can be a fun and unique choice for nighttime events or parties.

  • How do I ensure the colors and design on my wristband match my event branding?

When placing your order, you can provide us with your Pantone color codes or a .ai file of your design. This ensures that the wristbands align perfectly with your event’s branding. However, it’s important to understand that printed fabric and the Pantone colors displayed on your computer won’t align perfectly. The reality is that each computer screen and its settings vary, making the color on a printed material slightly different from how it appears on a monitor.
