Print Wristbands for the Best Event Security

Wristbands are a common part of any concert-goer’s wardrobe. Whether you’re planning to attend a multi-day music festival, or just a one-night show, chances are when you hand over your ticket at the gate, the security guard is going to give you a wristband to wear while you’re at the venue.

Music fans and festival attendees are rather accustomed to wearing wristbands these days. Since wristbands are a simple and inexpensive way for event organizers to manage an influx of people at any event, these little identifiers have become more than widespread.

Many event planners already know that the best way to increase security at an event is to have a fast, easy way to identify each guest.

So, if you’ve made that all-important decision to print wristbands for your event, the next question is, what kind of wristbands will you print?

Hologram, Stubbed, and Vinyl Wristbands, Oh My!

Choosing the right kind of wristband for your event shouldn’t be difficult. But it’s important to pick a wristband that will not only fit the parameters of your event (outdoor/indoor, single-day/multi-day), but will also allow you to display your brand with pride.

Here, we highlight three new types of wristbands that will help you keep your event secure.

1) Hologram Wristbands: These flashy bracelets will serve as the best event security you can find in a wristband. Made out of Tyvek, these wristbands feature a holographic foil label that is difficult to duplicate, and provides easy and fast identification.

2) Stubbed Wristbands: If numbering your event attendees is the top priority, then these wristbands will not only get the job done, as each one features a sequentially numbered stub, they’ll do it in style. Choose a unique color for your wristband, and a different color for the stub!

 3) Vinyl Wristbands: These tough cookies won’t come off once they’ve been attached, and they provide great security for multi-day and outdoor events.

Different from Tyvek Hologram and Stubbed Wristbands, Vinyl Wristbands are made out of polypropylene, which is even MORE durable than Tyvek.

Vinyl Wristbands are also printed from a thermal printer to provide you with a higher resolution and more clarity, so your text and image will look cleaner.

Make the right choice for your event, and find a wristband that will suit each guest perfectly, while keeping them identified securely.
