We Answer Your Wristband Questions

Got a question about wristbands you need answering?

Every order is unique so we like to keep our customers up-to-date with the most recent enquiries we’ve answered.


Can you write on vinyl wristbands with a permanent marker?

Yes, you can. You could write on a vinyl wristband with a biro if you needed to.


Can you stick Tyvek wristbands to metal?

Yes, Tyvek wristbands have a strong self-adhesive closure which will stick to most surfaces. This particular enquiry was in reference to a triathlon event where wristbands were needed to stick to metal bike racks.


Is there a character restriction for artwork?

No. All our templates show where the print area is. As long as you can fit your text in the print area (however small) there isn’t a limit. We do advise however, not to include too much text as it may reduce the quality of the print if the text is tiny.


What are the artwork guidelines for encapsulated passes?

Generally, the artwork guidelines are the measurements below, however please check with the office before placing an order.

Background Colour / Pattern – 93mm x 104mm
