Frequently Asked Questions

Wristband FAQs


What are bracelets made of?

Reminderband® silicone wristbands are made of 100% industrial-strength polished silicone and backed with a guarantee. Our custom silicone bracelets are of similar quality to Lance Armstrong's Livestrong bracelets and are stronger and more durable than rubber wristbands or rubber bracelets. Bracelets and wristbands that are made of rubber break much more easily and wear out much faster than our silicone bracelets do. For more detailed information visit our wristband specifications page.

What are your size measurements?

Reminderbands generally come in three main sizes: large, medium, and small. The large bands are 8 3/8"; in length and will fit most adults and large-framed teenagers. The medium bands are 7 3/8" in length and generally fit ages 11 and up, including most teenagers and average women. The small bands are 6 6/8" around and typically fit children 6-10 years old. We also sell an X-Large band in the Classic with Colorfill wristband.

If you would like a cut-out for measuring sizes on your wrist, print the Reminderband sizing page. If you have special requirements requiring especially large or small bands, call Customer Service at (800) 922-5401.

Can I create marbleized or segmented wristbands?

We have four marble/camo colors including regular camo, blue camo, pink camo, and desert camo. Choose these colors from the color drop down on a Classic band. For a segmented wristband, choose up to three colors, and then we will divide the band into sections of those colors. Segmented bands require a minimum order of 100.

Can I add a logo or artwork to my wristband?

Definitely. Logos, artwork, and font changes are great ways to create personalized rubber wristbands. You can pick from our font and graphics selection or upload custom artwork in our Band Builder.

Can I order multiple colors and sizes of wristbands with the same phrase?

Yes! From the order page, you can enter your phrase and then choose color and size quantities. Example: My phrase is "REMINDERBAND" and I select 5 Royal Blue, 5 Yellow, 40 Black, and 60 Orange for a total of 140 wristbands with that phrase.

What is debossing?

Debossing is the process Reminderband uses to mold your phrase into your custom silicone bracelets. The letters of your phrase and any symbols or artwork are molded into the silicone of the wristband, not just printed on the surface. Debossing is crisp, precise, and long-lasting.

Will I be charged more for putting text on both sides of my wristbands?

There is an additional setup cost per band to add a second side imprint. This refers to the second outside half of the wristband, which can contain up to 30 characters (including spaces). The cost varies according to quantity.

Can I order wristbands with a different color than the standard 32 colors?

Reminderband offers 32 standard colors that you can choose from for your wristband. However, if you need to match an exact color or would prefer another color than what we offer we can do that for you as well. Custom-colored wristbands require a minimum order of 200 wristbands and there is an extra charge for the custom color. Orders can be placed online. For additional questions, please call 1-800-922-5401, use live chat, or email us.

Can I have color-fill in the letters of my phrase?

Yes! Create a wristband with one color for the band and another color for the text in your phrase. With this method, we deboss your phrase/logo into the bands and then mold another color of silicone into the imprint. The color fill is extremely durable and, unlike screen printing, the silicone lettering is extremely durable and colorfast. Price of color-fill varies based on quantity. We even allow you to choose up to two text/art colors on your band!

Do you send samples?

Yes! Let us know what type of band and colors, and we will try to find a similar band we can send you. Note that we are just sending you samples of what we have on hand. If you want a sample of your very own band you want to order, then you will just need to order like you normally would a regular order. Also, we charge $5 for the sample to cover shipping and handling.

Will I be charged based on the number of characters in my phrase?

No. Since Reminderband does not charge per character, you can create a phrase to convey your message at no additional cost. Each side of most wristband types can hold up to 30 characters, including spaces.
