Silicone rubber bracelets, made of silicone polymer, can be seen on the wrists of many men and women. These are loved by young people, and wearing these has become quite a fashion trend these days. You can find these being used for fashion, as well as for promotional purposes, charitable causes etc. Many of these are used for fundraising events and come with inspirational messages printed on them. These are also used for making sporting events more fun-filled and as party favors for birthday, graduation or other parties. You can get various types of these bracelets.
Debossed silicone rubber bracelets
These need the creation of a custom mold with the design that is needed. The chosen logo or message is molded the into the silicone rubber that will be used for the manufacturing. Debossed bands are the most used custom rubber bands the world over. As these require creating a custom mold, these have to be slightly costlier in case you plan to order only a few of these bands. You can also get custom debossed wrist bracelets made of silicone which also can be filled with color. These silicone rubber bracelets come in interesting, attractive and contrasting colors. Although these are slightly pricier, it is worth buying them if you want to be a standout among others.
Embossed silicone rubber bracelets
Unlike debossed bands, these are not very common. However, these have an individual beauty which makes them quite popular. Like debossed bracelets, embossed ones also need a custom mold to be used. The only difference lies in the fact that the message does not have to be imprinted into the rubber; instead it has to be lifted off the silicone. The time for construction as well as the cost of making these types of bracelets can be compared to that of debossed ones.
Printed silicone rubber bracelets
There is the need to create a custom designed template first, in order to make these silicone rubber bracelets. The template has to be first placed onto the rubber wristband. The message is then printed using silk-screen technology with a special kind of dye which can seep into the bracelet. These types of bands can last for a long time without problems of flaking or chipping. As use of a custom mold does not involve any additional cost, rubber bracelets that are printed are generally lower in price. These can be made faster than embossed and debossed wristbands made of silicone.
Laser-Engraved silicone rubber bracelets
These are manufactured with the help of laser-engraving equipment. For the uninitiated, Laser Engraving actually refers to a type of finish of debossed style. The logos and the messages are accurately engraved onto rubber bands with the aid of laser-engraving technique. These types of silicone rubber bracelets are fast becoming a hit with the young and the old. Given the fact that there is no need for a custom mold, these bracelets can be created much faster and at economical rates. These are being used more and more for promotional, charitable, fashion and various other purposes.
