One of the hardest things to do in marketing is to keep your budget in check. As we all know it is easy to spend money and it all adds up. With promotional products the old adage is true; “A penny saved is a penny earned”. So when thinking about where to spend your money you can’t go past wristbands. A wristband is one of the cheapest promotional products you can find. With a wristband you know you will get a lot of mileage for your dollar. Especially where you are hosting a large event with a lot of attendees a wristband will be both adaptable and memorable all together.
When thinking about adding a promotional wristband it is good to know that you have many options from which to chose. Sure you can just go with the run of the mill plain wristband. I mean it can be printed and comes in a lot of colour options so you can’t go wrong. But if you are looking to do something special then it is a good idea to think of the other options available to you. If you thought you didn’t have a lot of choices with custom wristbands then you are definitely wrong. Below is some food for thought when it comes to wristbands.
Have you ever heard about embossing and debossing. First embossing is where you have a raised surface. So in the context of the silicone wristband the logo will be raised which you will be able to feel when you run your finger across it. embossing is a branding option which is used often where there is a desire to enhance the look of a product. It is often also used in textiles and other product categories. With promotional wristbands it is a fantastic option for adding appeal to the product. Debossing on the other hand is where the logo is indented into the wristband. Again it is a great method of branding which adds value to the product without incurring a huge cost. In fact both methods are very inexpensive cost not any more then a basic print.
If you are looking for something a little more fun then it is worth considering a slap band. A slap band if basically a silicone wristband which when slapped across the wrist wraps itself around the wrist. The slap band can be printed with your logo and can come packed flat or wrapped. They are a great little promotional product. It is especially great if you are targeting the youth market which is generally more receptive to fun products and gadgets.
So if you are planning a promotional campaign or have an event coming up then please consider a wristband. Believe me you can’t go wrong.
