Why should I get my wristbands printed?
Wristbands are made for entry and identification purposes most of the time. With getting the wristbands printed, they'll be better event wristbands and designed to match your needs, so using printed text and/or logos we can make sure people who have similar wristbands from somewhere else cannot enter without buying a ticket or unauthorised to access certain areas. Custom wristbands with free design!
We advise you to get your wristbands printed with text and/or logos for two reasons:
Use different coloured wristbands and/or printed ones for each event you organise. This way you can avoid the possibility of unauthorised personnel entering your events. The custom wristbands with a unique design, almost completely eliminate this possibility and that copies of your wristbands would be distributed and used to enter your event. Printed wristbands can be easily and quickly checked at the door by the event staff.
You can choose from two options, depending on when you would like to get your custom wristbands:
Standard printing (2-3 working days)
The wristbands will be made in 2-3 working days counted from the date of payment and approval of the artwork, then sent out according to the chosen delivery method.
Standard printing costs: £0.02+VAT/wristband
Standard set up fee: £10+VAT/cliché
You can easily select this printing method while making a wristband order. If you would like a faster method please choose our express printing service.
Express printing (24 hours)
This means that the wristbands will be made in the next 24 hours counted from the approval of the artwork and confirmation of payment, then sent out with the chosen delivery option.

If you would like your own design or logo printed on these wristbands, please take the following into consideration:
The Tyvek wristbands along with the Plastic and Vinyl are printed with screen printing. For the Tyvek wristbands you can choose from 16 different base colours, which you can find on the product page. You can also find the possible printing colours there too. The printing for these wristbands can be done with one chosen colour only.
In exceptional cases, if the design has elements that are clearly separated from each other, there is a possibility to print them with separate colours. For more information please seek our assistance!
We DON'T print these types of wristbands with a custom pantone colour!

Please make sure that the letters in the design are made into vectors (outlines) and the files don't contain any fonts, also we recommend to avoid letters with fine line bases.
The smallest font that can be used is 8 pt.
Lines thinner than 1 mm won't be visible in all cases after the printing.
