Tyvek, festival and silicone are the most common types of wristbands available for events, however, they are all used for different purposes. If you’re unsure what each wristband is best suited for you, this breakdown of each type will help you decide which one will fulfil your needs.




Festival wristbands are popular for the durability and security they offer. They are made with a fabric that is of the highest standard, and the range of fastenings available means that there is no chance of them falling off. As you can guess from the name, a number of festival and event organisers utilise the fabric or festival wristbands for these very reasons. With our festival wristbands are an ideal size meaning that you can brand it for any kind of festival or event.




Silicone wristbands are the perfect type of wristband if you are wanting a wristband that can be used to advertise or promote your product or service. This is because they can be easily printed, engraved and are available in a host of different colours, which also means you can have a design that is specific to your needs. The silicone wristband is also commonly known as the charity wristband; this is because it is most popular with charities who are wanting to spread awareness of their cause. The reason a wristband is chosen for this is because it is more memorable than just a flyer, and it gives people a ‘wearable’ option.




The Tyvek wristband can be classed as the best priced and simple of the wristbands. They fasten through a self-adhesive, tough-to- break seal which can only be taken off if it is cut with scissors. Additionally, Tyvek wristbands are made with a material that is waterproof and is very easy use in terms of functionality. Tyvek wristbands are near perfect for nightclubs, as they reasoning are perfectly sized, cheap and easy customizable. Also, the wristbands can be used as an alternative to stamping a person when they enter – which can be hugely irritating for most people going into clubs as the stamp can be difficult to remove.
