Raising Awareness With A Wristband

Silicone Wristbands

Some people call them awareness wristbands, others may call them promotional wristbands, while many simply refer to them as a ‘wristband’ with a message custom printed on the band for all to see. Whatever you want to call them, be assured that raising awareness with a wristband is a trend that is showing no signs of slowing down.

Many people in society can be found wearing a variety of coloured bracelets with phrases such as "Autism Awareness," "Stop Bullying," and the controversial "I Love One Direction" imprinted on them. AAC saw a big surge in popularity of awareness wristbands when (now disgraced) Lance Armstrong and his Foundation's Live Strong was introduced back in 2004. A major part of the campaign focused on promoting the ‘Live Strong’ message using a silicone wristband. The wrist band became a world-wide success. AAC provide awareness solutions for many customers every single week and are always amazed at how popular the silicone wristband is at achieving their requirements.

Using a custom wristband to promote awareness is very effective for several reasons. Firstly, customised wrist bands will help to promote awareness for a particular cause while masquerading as a fashion accessory. Many Not-For-Profit organisations across Australasia like Breast Cancer Awareness, The Cerebral Palsy Foundation and the Daniel Morecombe Foundation use the silicon wristband to promote their very special messages to a wide target market.

Another major advantage of the awareness wristbands is the opportunity for fundraising activities. Not-For-profit organisations rely heavily on donations in order to continue or maybe fund research etc. AAC supply many leading organisations across Australasia providing them with custom printed wristbands which shows their logo and website, plus messages for a donation etc. A wristband also offers an inexpensive keepsake for the wearer. Every single year, organisations raise millions of dollars using wristbands.

Reason number three is probably the most important to 99.9% of our customers. Wristbands are inexpensive and easy to order through AAC. Plastic type Tyvek wristbands and vinyl wristbands feature a locking snap so the wrist bands cannot be transferred to another person, making them an ideal option for fundraising events where there is an admission cost. Or you could choose the popular silicone wristband range which are reusable and durable so they are ideal for keepsakes plus can be worn for weeks, months and even years…
