Back to School Wristbands

Enjoyed the Easter break? Ready to go back to work?

(Is anyone?)

The days of scoffing chocolate are well and truly over and the dreaded routine of going back to work is upon us. Schools prepare! There’s a lot to organise and (because we’re so incredibly helpful) we’ve made a list of all the wristband and lanyard products you might need now you’re back in action.


Medical Wristbands

We all know the feeling of sitting in the nurses office waiting for the okay to either go home or be sent back to class. We also know from the school staff’s point of view that each accident has to be recorded. When I was young, we used to receive a paper slip if we’d been to the nurse’s office. Since paper slips are easy to misplace, we suggest using wristbands as an alternative.

Tyvek Wristbands:

  • I bumped my head today…
  • I saw the nurse today because…

Silicone Wristbands:

  • I have an allergy. Ask me about it.
  • I carry medical equipment /medicine on me.


Emergency Contact Wristbands

Got a few school trips planned this term? Hand out emergency contact wristbands to the students to keep them safe while out and about. Going abroad? Purchase fabric wristbands which have a longer wear and are comfortable on the skin. Want trip wristbands you can use over and over again? Why not custom design a generic silicone wristband which can be issued on the day of the trip and then taken back once home again?

Tyvek Wristbands:

  • If I get lost, contact [School Name] on [School no.]

Silicone Wristbands:

  • [School Name] Contact [school no.]

Fabric Wristbands:

  • Year [no.]’s School Trip to [Place] [Date] [School no.]


Award Wristbands

Starting a new term means starting new challenges / tasks / award systems. These wristbands are keepsake and represent achievement. Therefore, it is only right that the wristbands are special. Keepsake wristbands are either silicone or fabric.

Silicone Wristbands:

  • 100% Attendance
  • Reader of the Week
  • Star of the Week

Fabric Wristbands:

  • [School Name]’s Prom [Date]
