Who would have imagined that such a simple little item has such a large place in marketing today?Silicone wristbands, or bracelets as some like to call them, can be fabricated easily, cheaply, and quickly.
They can take on different shapes, any color, and many meanings and messages. They can be invaluable to those planning an event, public or private, in keeping track of the number of attendees. They have virtually taken the place of paper tickets and backstage passes. Nearly any age and condition can find a use for silicone wristbands.
Excuse Me, What’s that on Your Wrist?
Many trends start with teens, of course, and they took to silicone wristbands quickly. For those who like to wear many bracelets on the arms, silicone is cheap, hypo-allergenic, recyclable, and looks good on both sexes.
Teens’ wrists can sport any number of silicone subjects: their schools, sports teams, and avocations such as skateboarding, bands, cartoon characters, and much more.
Schools of all grades can sell silicone bracelets as fund-raisers or give them away for school spirit activities, homecoming games; not to mention all the extracurricular activities such as band, sports teams, and other organizations.
Whenever a class or group of kids are going off the school campus for field trips or the like, the safety and identification of the kids is uppermost in the planner’s mind. Every child sporting an electric pink or green silicone wristband is counted and moved around much more efficiently and safely.
The same idea goes for elder care and their frequent trips. In fact, any group of travelers of any age, be it a day trip or a European tour, can benefit with quick identification and much less time wasted rounding up the group.
Wearing the same symbol or belief unites and binds numbers of people closely together; a person feels vindicated and their beliefs are reinforced and nurtured when they see another person wearing the same silicone wristband.
Churches, political groups, advocacy groups, and charities of all kinds find that silicone wristbands motivate and foster a sense of community and cooperation among those wearing identical bands. And once the event has come to an end promoters have discovered that folks may continue to wear the wristband as a souvenir.
Here’s the bottom line: silicone wristbands are eye-catching and inexpensive. They can be customized to convey any message. They are conversation starters and ice-breakers. Who knows what a little thing like a silicone bracelet can start?
