About Custom Printed Vinyl Wristbands
You will, no doubt, have heard of vinyl but again might be surprised that, much like Tyvek Paper, this material was stumbled upon by scientist Waldo Semon in the 1920’s. Throughout the 1930’s and 1940’s its applications grew from golf balls to rain coats and from electric cable coatings to shower curtains. Even now the use of this extremely versatile material continues to soar with vinyl now counted as one of the top 2 plastics sold in the world!
We use vinly for our wristbands and we believe they are simply the best on the market! Essentially a polymer product with all the advantages this affords in terms of strength and durability (our Vinyl Wristbands will easily stay looking good and performing well for over 2 weeks) combined with exceptional comfort. In fact they are so lightweight you will hardly know you have one on!
As you’d expect from a plastic product they are tear, tamper and waterproof and as we print using thermal technology any bespoke design you create using our cutting edge Wristband Designer will become integral to the wristband and will not wear.
Although extremely comfortable our Vinyl Wristbands are much more rigid than our Tyvek Wristbands and therefore we recommend them when the life expectancy of a wristband is more than 2 days. We would also recommend our Vinyl Wristbands where a more professional look is required as they belie their very low cost in stunning looks. In fact once printed on we believe they represent the best value and best looking wristband on the market. Simply better than the rest!

Some Frequently Asked Questions;
What sizes do your Vinyl Wristbands come in? We stock 2 width sizes for Vinyl Wristbands; 19mm (3/4 inch) and 25mm (1 inch). The length of the 19mm Vinyl Wristband is 295mm and the length of the 25mm Vinyl Wristband is 260mm. The lengths are different because the 25mm wristband has a stud button mechanism whereas the 19mm wristband uses self adhesive. Both still allow the user to determine where to create the closing to make sure the wristband is both secure and comfortable.
Why are there 2 width sizes for Vinyl wristbands? Our most popular Vinyl wristband is the 19mm band. This allows for 2 text lines for customised wristbands and a logo or image. It can also accommodate the optional serial number, barcode and QR code. The 25mm Vinyl Wristband is used where more text is required, we can easily accommodate 4 lines of text, or where more information is required e.g. sponsor logos. Both are comfortable to wear and available in a range of colours. Our 19mm Vinyl Wristband has a self adhesive closing whereas our 25mm Vinyl Wristband comes with a stud button closing.
What colours do you stock? We stock our Vinyl Wristbands in these stunning and vibrant colours; Orange, Neon Lime, Pink, Yellow, White and Red.
Are your Vinyl wristbands tear proof and tamper proof? YES! Our Vinyl Wristbands are exceptionally strong and durable. Once on they are impossible to remove without it being obvious that they have been tampered with. However, they are easily removed with a pair of scissors or a knife once the event has finished.
Are your Vinyl wristbands waterproof? YES! Vinyl is essentially a plastic product and therefore waterproof. They are, therefore, very well suited for outdoor events, swimming pools, leisure centres, water parks and All Inclusive Hotels and Resorts and will easily last for over 2 weeks of continual use. As we print using thermal technology any bespoke design you create using our cutting edge Wristband Designer will become integral to the wristband and will not wear and are water and weather proof.

By incorporating a QR code you can also advertise your website to both the user and others who scan the QR code with their mobile phone and are automatically delivered directly to your website!

Vinyl Wristbands can also be customised using our cutting edge Wristband Designer which allows you to use your text and your logo or image as well your own serial number sequence, barcode and QR code if required. All this power at your fingertips! Start designing now!
Are your Vinyl Wristbands lightweight? YES! They are incredibly lightweight and comfortable and yet still incredibly strong and durable. Once on you will forget you are wearing them. We feel this is important as, although the wristband needs to perform an important task in easily allowing you to control who should and more importantly who should not be at your event or establishment, it should also be comfortable for the user to wear.
Do your Vinyl Wristbands come in rolls? If so, how many wristbands are there on a roll? Yes. Our Vinyl Wristbands come in 2 different widths; 19mm and 25mm. Plain or customised, both come in rolls of 100.
How are Vinyl wristbands attached or affixed? Our Vinyl Wristbands come in 2 different widths; 19mm and 25mm. The 25mm wristband has a stud button mechanism whereas the 19mm wristband uses a self adhesive closing. Both still allow the user to determine where to create the closing to make sure the wristband is both secure and comfortable. On our 19mm Vinyl Wristband one end of the wristband, called the 'W' end, has an adhesive glue which is covered by a peel off seal. To attach the wristband you simply put the wristband around the wrist of the user, remove the peel off seal and attach the sticky 'W' end to the wristband. This enables the user to remain comfortable whilst also ensuring that the wristband cannot be removed without being cut. On our 25mm Vinyl Wristband we use a stud button closing mechanism. This is a plastic button that pops through one pre punched hole on one end of the wristband and then through another of the 12 pre punched holes on the other end of the wristband to form a comfortable but secure loop. Once secure and comfortable the stud button is snapped closed and the wristband becomes impossible to remove without being obviously tampered with or cut.
Are Vniyl wristbands flame resistant? Yes. Our Vinyl Wristbands are fire retardant.
Can you recycle Vinyl wristbands? Yes. They are 100% recyclable. They should be recycled as a plastic. So, as well as providing an ideal economic solution to admission and security, our Vinyl Wristbands are also environmentally friendly!
Can you put a barcode or QR code on a Vinyl wristband? Absolutely! Using our cutting edge Wristband Designer as well as printing your text and your logo or image directly onto our Vinyl Wristbands we can also incorporate your own serial number sequence, barcode and QR code if required. This opens up a range of applications such as automated entry (swimming pools, leisure centres, water parks and all inclusive hotels and resorts etc) and cashless point of sale solutions (use the unique barcode to register purchases) to name but a few. By incorporating a QR code you can also advertise your website to both the user and others who scan the QR code with their mobile phone and are automatically delivered directly to your website! All of this for a very low cost. Start designing your wristband now!

If this is the case we will contact you immediately and let you know. If this does not meet your needs we will refund you immediately.
What is the maximum printable area on Vinyl wristbands? As wrists come in all different sizes it makes sense not to print on the entire wristband as, on the whole, a lot of the print will get covered up. With this in mind we only print in the following print area;
19mm Vinyl Wristband – 15mm high and 105mm wide
25mm Vinyl Wristband – 21mm high and 90mm wide
This has been incorporated into our cutting edge Wristband Designer so you will be guided as you design your wristband and ensure that all of your text and design is visible.
What colours do you use when printing on Vinyl wristbands? We can print on any of our colour Vinyl Wristbands in black print only.
Can we fill the entire printable area with our logo or image? Yes. Simply upload your logo or image and use the Special Instructions field to tell us to fill the printable area with your logo/image. Please note that if you choose the barcode and/or QR code option the printable area will reduce accordingly to incorporate the barcode and/or QR code.
