Print Tyvek Wristbands to Increase Your Event Security

From multi-day music festivals to single-night events, wristbands are showing up everywhere in the event-planning industry. Whether you want to increase security at your event, identify your ticket holders faster, or help your VIPs avoid long and pesky lines, printing wristbands can help you organize your event with a great deal more efficiency than you ever thought possible.

When it comes to printing wristbands for your event, it’s important to weigh the options and choose the right kind. There are a hefty multitude of different wristbands to choose from, and picking the right one can make all the difference in the world when your event goes live.

How to Make Your Event More Successful

Wristbands can really help you enhance your overall event organization and security. Not only are they convenient, comfortable to wear, and at times hip and trendy, they can also help you minimize the time you spend admitting each guest into your event.

Take an example from the massive, multi-day event SXSW in Austin, TX.

Instead of selling individual tickets for their music festival, then handing over each patron a wristband at the time of their arrival, they’ve cut out the middle step entirely.

They’re selling wristbands as tickets, thereby upping event security and lowering time spent with each attendee in one fell swoop. Now, that’s smart event-planning.

Do yourself a favor. Follow in the footsteps of the greats and print wristbands for your event.

How to Choose the Right Kind of Wristband

Ask yourself the following questions: is your event a multi-day festival? Will it be held outside? Do you want to add business logos or use wristbands for extra ad space?

The answers to these questions will help you choose the right wristband for your event. Check out the following for some of the best options on the market.

  • Tyvek Hologram Wristbands (hologram security, strong yet light, easy to apply)
  • Tyvek Stubbed Wristbands (securely numbered stub, waterproof and tough)
  • Vinyl Wristbands (affordable, waterproof, high-resolution, great for multi-day)

Many of these wristbands can be printed in any color of the rainbow. You can also custom design your wristbands (both vinyl and Tyvek) to create your very own work of arm-art.

Enhance security and minimize disorganization at your event with handy wristbands. These little bracelets may be exactly what you need to take your event to the next level.
