Colors of Awareness

Many of our customers come to us when they need to design custom wristbands to raise awareness for a cause that is near and dear to their heart. In honor of that, we’ve created a guide that identifies the various awareness colors and the common diseases, conditions and causes that they represent.

The common symbol for awareness is a ribbon. As you can see above, we have a variety of ribbon designs that can be added to your custom wristbands. Just make mention in your order notes and we will gladly do so. As for colors, the ten most common colors listed below represent a huge variety of issues.
