Hey there! You found your way to our original wristband blog, for newer posts check our current blog!
Once upon a time, a national craze was started by a simple, yellow half inch wristband. It seemed like one day there were no silicone wristbands on the planet, and the next day everyone either had one or wanted to know how to get one. LiveStrong became a fundraising force, driven on by the now-shamed Lance Armstrong and the now iconic yellow LiveStrong half inch wristband.
While the story of LiveStrong has had its share of ups and downs, the silicone wristband itself has continued to grow in popularity for several reasons:
1. They Are Inexpensive. Depending on QTY, the cost for our half inch wristbands range from 73 cents per piece all the way down to 12 cents per piece. Even at the high price point, these wristbands are an extremely profitable fundraising item.
2. They Possess High Intrinsic Value. People are not purchasing just a wristband. They are investing in a cause. And often times the cause is dearly important to them, too. This creates an intrinsic value that would not otherwise exist. Fundraisers are routinely able to ask for a $5 donation for each wristband. Even on a minimum order of 100 (73 cents per piece), a fundraiser can raise $427 of pure profit.
3. People Love To Wear Them. Everywhere you look, people are wearing half inch silicone wristbands. I'm sure you have, at one point or another, noticed a wristband on a friend and asked about it and they were happy to share with you the cause they proudly support. This adds value to your fundraiser past the dollars and cents. It adds a level of awareness for whatever important cause you are trying to aid. This can lead to further donations down the road.
4. They Are Easy To Order. You can order fully customized silicone wristbands online on our website and have exactly what you want in mere minutes. You can even design the wristbands online yourself, using our many fonts and graphics. If you need a more complicated design, we can do that, too.
