Do you know silicone bracelets can also double up as awareness bracelets? You can use fashionable and stylish silicone bracelets to sport a slogan or carry a message or tagline that can arrest people’s attention and champion a particular noble cause.
Silicone bracelets have been in use since time immemorial and they are used by people to raise awareness about different types of cancer, especially blood cancer and breast cancer, liver diseases, diabetes, cervical cancer, dyslexia, AIDS and a host of other such diseases.
Awareness bracelets or silicone bracelets can be of different types. Let me cite some of those different styles of silicone rubber bracelets which help to create awareness for a cause.
Embossed silicone wristbands
The most common type of silicone rubber bracelet is the debossed silicone wristband. Compared to that, embossed ones are not that ubiquitous. But I personally feel embossed silicone wristlets have their own charm and they can be customized as well so that you can use them to create any kind of awareness you want.
Just like debossed bracelets, embossed silicone rubber bracelets also are made out of a customized mold. In case of debossed bracelets, the awareness message is debossed or imprinted into the silicone rubber band. While in case of embossed silicone wristbands, the awareness message that is imprinted or embossed shoots up from the surface of the silicone wristband, the message is raised up.
The turnaround time for embossed silicone bracelets as well as the prices is pretty similar to those of debossed silicone rubber bracelets.
Printed silicone rubber wristbands
In this case, the 1st step involves preparing a template that can be customized and you can add your own designs and awareness messages to that template. The artisans will then place the template on top of the silicone bracelets.
Whatever awareness message or cause you want to champion will get printed or imprinted on the surface of the silicone rubber bracelets through silk screen method. In this method the printers use a special kind of dye which has the ability to penetrate through and impregnate the silicone rubber.
You can safely use customized printed silicone rubber bracelets for quite some time because they are durable enough and can withstand every day wear and tear. Nor do they get chipped or experience flaking. Printed silicone rubber wristbands are cheaper and far more pocket friendly compared to the other two kinds of awareness bracelets or silicone rubber bracelets I mentioned above.
This low and affordable price is because these types of silicone rubber bracelets do not feature customized molds. Apart from a lower price, the turnaround time is also faster compared to embossed and debossed silicone rubber wristbands or awareness bracelets.
