Silicone wristbands are tools that can be personally customized. There are even some makers of customized silicone bands that allow their customers to customize the said bands directly via their online designing tool. The wristbands can be optimized in almost any way the designer wants. As long as the right elements are put in their right places, an effective marketing tool can be produced.
Product Type –
The designer will have to start with the width when creating the design for the custom band. Decide what the exact width of the band. The measurement for the standard width of the custom silicone band is usually at half an inch. There are custom band makers that can make bands as thin as a quarter of an inch to as thick as ¾ inches.
Band Color –
The color of the wristband must also be taken into consideration when it comes to designing. There are single color bands, multi-color bands, and full color bands available in the market nowadays. A good custom wristband maker can offer a wide variety of colors based on the chosen color system. The color chosen for the design must reflect the theme of the event the band is being designed for.
Message Style –
It is also important to decide on what message to write on the band so that the style can be decided upon as well. One can choose to have a bold or subtle style. Do keep in mind that the message style will define the custom silicone wristbands. Here are the different message styles that one can take advantage of:
• Debussed style, with the message sunken into the band but still retain the same coloring as that of the entire custom wristband.
• Ink-filled debussed style, with the message sunken into the band but have another color injected to the message.
• Embossed style, with the message raised and of the same color as the custom wristband. This style is identical to Braille.
• Colorized embossed style, with the message raised but the raised message has a screen-printed color layer.
• Screen printed style, with the message printed onto the custom wristband using thermal transfer or silk screen.
There is no restriction when it comes to the message to be printed onto the bracelet. It depends on the width of the band though. The message can either be embossed, debussed, or screen printed. The designer has to make the message as brief and direct to the point as possible though. The message should also have an impact and should really mean something to the target audience.
Message Color –
There are designs that will require the message to be of the same color as that of the band, while some designs require the message to stand out from the rest of the band and thus, should be of a different color. The online tools nowadays offer a color palette that the designer can customize.
The font should be decided beforehand too. The font that can be used for the silicone wristbands range to over 300 fonts available online. It is up to the designer to decide which font reflects the message being printed. The designer just needs to make sure that the font choice has a bold impact on the message.
Clip Art –
It can be useful to add a clip art into the wristband. In most wristband design tools that are found online, the use of clip art is highly encouraged. There are thousands available for the designer to choose from. It is even possible for the designer to just upload custom logo or artwork.
The wristband does not come in a single size. There is a variety of sizes available for the custom wristband. The decision on what size to use will basically depend on who will be wearing the wristband. The sizes to choose from can range from small to medium to large.
However, don’t forget that the size defines the printable area. The bigger a wristband is, the more details and designs it can accommodate.
Glow and Glitter –
To some designers, coloring is not sufficient. If that is the case, then consider the use of glows and glitters. Glow in the dark silicone wristbands are becoming more and more in demand nowadays. Wristbands that change under the UV light are also becoming popular these days. Sparkle rings are worth designing too. For this design, adding sparkles with the right placement can add more impact to the custom wristband.
These are the important elements that the designer has to take advantage of to be able to produce a well-designed wristband. Investing in the design of a custom wristband is definitely a good strategy to add to one’s marketing campaign. There are too many benefits that one should never overlook when it comes to the custom wristband. Not using it to market the business is certainly a bad choice.
