A slap band or slap bracelet (as they are also know) is a bracelet consisting of layered, flexible stainless steel bands sealed within a fabric, silicone, or plastic cover. The flexible band wraps around the wrist and is applied with a slapping motion hence it name.

History of Slap Band

It is claimed that the slap band was invented by Stuart Anders and was originally sold as the “Slap Wrap”. [1] The slap bracelet was a popular amongst kids and was available in a wide variety of patterns and colors. The bracelet was mainly popular during the 90s but then gradually morphed into a promotional or marketing product. It ease of use and inexpensive price made it a prime target for the promotional industry. Also it large print area made it ideal as a promotional merchandise item especially to give out at major events as an identity tool.

Our promotional slap bands are available in two great sizes which then provides two great logo print spaces.

What’s more they are a durable item which will stay in circulation long after you have handed them out at an event or included them in a gift pack.

Printing Methods

There are four main printing methods involves when printing the bands. The printing method involved depend on the type of logo and the size of the logo that you are trying to print. Some companies have simple single colour or dual colour logos, whereas others have multi-colour logos or corporate logos with a gradient of colours in them. The type of print methods used include:

  • Pad Print – Is mainly used where it is a simple logo with a simple shape. Usually there are no more then a couple of colours. With pad printing a block is created for each component of the logo. The band is placed in a jig so that is doesn’t move during the printing process. The block then picks up the designated colour and deposits it on the product being printed. This same process is repeated with each colour or component of the logo.
  • Screen Print – Screen print is similar to pad print in that each colour of the logo is printed individually. The different is that a film is create of each component and instead of it being stamped onto the product it is applies with a screen and a spatular. It is the same method that is used to screen print t-shirts but on a hard surface. Screen print allows for printing larger print areas or where there is a slight curve in the product.
  • Digital Print – Digital print is used where there is a gradient or a very complex logo. The method is the same as your standard colour printer. There are a number of tanks or cartridges with different colour which are mixed and then applied to the surface accordingly. With digital print a solvent is applied to the surface to ensure that the print says on the surface and is not easily rubbed off.
  • UV Print – This method is similar to digital print. However the technology used doesn’t necessitate a pre-application of solvent. This factor makes it less time consuming but it is generally more expensive then digital print
