The 5 Advantages of Vinyl Wristbands for Your Event

In our article, what is a Vinyl wristband we discussed the common uses for a Vinyl or PVC wristband, how they are made as well as the types that can be found on the market.

Vinyl Wristbands are a popular choice for access control at events, as well as identification in hospitals as they are more durable than Tyvek wristbands but cheaper than Fabric wristbands.


A list of Advantages for using Vinyl wristbands


1. Tamper evident clip – The tamper evident clip allows event organisers to eliminate the possibility of sharing wristbands amongst event-goers. Once the clip is closed, it cannot be opened and the only way to get the wristband off is to cut through it, making it worthless thereafter.

2. Soft and comfortable to wear – Vinyl wristbands are made from a soft and flexible type of plastic that easily and comfortably fits onto any size wrist. This is important for event organisers to consider especially if the wristband has to stay on over a few days.

3. Durable – Vinyl wristbands are the most durable type of wristband as they are water and tear resistant. The highest quality vinyl wristbands are made from at least 3 layers of vinyl for strength and durability. They will easily remain in perfect condition for an event of up to 10 days.

4. Easy to create unique wristbands and difficult to duplicate – Vinyl wristbands are available in just about any colour as well as a wide variety of styles. From wavy edges to glitterbands, vinyl wristbands can be completely customised. This adds to better security for your event as they will be difficult to duplicate. Should you have sponsors that wish to brand the access control wristbands, vinyl wristbands are probably one of the easier to brand. They can be branded with either one colour or full colour depending on your needs. They can also be branded anywhere on the wristband which some sponsors prefer.

5. Water resistant – Vinyl wristbands won’t damage, fade, thin or wear when exposed to water. For events that take place over many days this is ideal as showering, swimming or bathing with a vinyl wristband on is no problem at all.
