What Do Different Wristband Colors Mean?

Silicon Wrist Band


Silicone wristbands are an inexpensive and trendy option to help raise awareness and funds for particular causes. What many people might not realize is that a majority of the time, the colors used in the wristband have particular meanings to them. Therefore, even if you can’t see any of the writing on the wristband from a distance, the color of the band should clue you in to what the band means.

Here are a few of the common colors you’ll see on wristbands and what they mean:


  • Yellow: Livestrong/support our troops. These wristbands are basically what kicked off the trend of awareness wristbands. The Livestrong charity was started by cyclist Lance Armstrong, who was well-known for overcoming testicular cancer en route to winning seven consecutive Tour de France titles. These bracelets benefit cancer charities and research and encourage cancer awareness. Yellow can also occasionally be used as a twist on the yellow ribbon, a sign of support for United States armed forces.
  • Orange: Livefree. Orange wristbands encourage awareness of the dangers that are inherent smoking tobacco. Everyone knows someone who smokes or has smoked, and these orange wristbands encourage awareness of the damage that tobacco can cause to a person’s body.
  • Purple: Celebrate Hope. Purple wristbands are worn as a memorial for anyone who has lost their life to cancer. Many charities such as Relay for Life and Relay for a Cause use these bands at their events.
  • Red: Courage band. The color red in wristbands signifies awareness of people hiving with HIV or AIDS. It is meant to be a symbol of hope that a cure can be found.
  • Black and white: anti-racism. These unique crossover bands are worn by people who want to show solidarity among races, particularly in an age where racism sadly seems to be on the rise in America.
  • Pink: breast cancer awareness. Pink is widely known as being the color of breast cancer awareness, and that holds true in the world of wristbands.


If you are ordering wristbands to show support for a certain cause, consider these colors, and feel free to talk with us more about the significance of any other color you may choose. We look forward to working with you. Contact us today to see how we can help!

USB Flash Drives: A Unique Promotional Product


Businesses and organizations are always looking for new and unique ways to market themselves, and promotional products can make a lasting impression. USB flash drives are promotional products that can help brands get their names out there, while giving potential customers a useful device that they might use on a daily basis. Unlike more traditional promotional products, which can be spectacularly dull for the recipient, most people are excited to receive a functional, custom-branded USB flash drive—especially if it’s free.

While it’s true that USB flash drives are more expensive to give out than, say, a pen emblazoned with your company’s name and slogan, these devices hold a far greater perceived value for the people receiving them. Flash drives are inherently useful pieces of technology, and as opposed to a pen or other promotional item, tend to make people thankful that they can receive something for free that they otherwise would have needed to purchase at a store.

USB flash drives often become valued personal belongings for their owners. It’s difficult not to grow a little attached to something you use all the time and trust with your personal documents. People also tend gravitate to the devices that are the most unique, making your custom designed image aligned with something of true value to your customers.

One of the best things about using a flash drive as a promotional item is the fact that these devices are made for sharing data. Every time someone transfers or accesses a file through his or her USB drive is another moment when the people around them can take pause and check out your company’s logo or promotional message.

If your company has digital promotional material it would like to place into the hands of consumers, uploading it to a customized flash drive is an excellent way to ensure that your customers will see it. You can even have an “automatic launch” function for your digital material, which means it will play as soon as the flash drive is plugged into a computer. Users can then either discard that material and reuse the drive, or keep it on the device for repeated viewings.

As a promotional item, a USB flash drive is an excellent way to grab the attention and continued gratitude of your current and potential customers. And custom shapes, styles and designs are available to make your company’s USB flash drives really stand out from the crowd. If you haven’t considered custom flash drives as a promotional product for your brand, it’s time to give it a shot


How PVC Coasters Can Help with Your Marketing Efforts

PVC coasters are promotional products that present an excellent marketing opportunity for all types of businesses. Even if your primary focus is the drink on top of your coaster, you’re bound to take a look at what it says. (Just try setting a drink onto a coaster without looking down at it, and you’ll find it’s virtually impossible!)

For an innocuous and un-invasive advertising technique, coasters are highly effective at getting customers to recognize branded images and retaining promotional information.

Most people are familiar with the most common use of advertising on coasters: beer advertising. Nearly every major brand has its logo emblazoned on coasters of multiple styles, designs and shapes. PVC coasters provide a unique advantage over the more common cardboard types of coasters, as they are washable, reusable and far more durable.

Beer companies looking to stand out in their industry often use PVC coasters as promotional products, giving customers something they’ll look at every time they set their drink down at home. This brings that company’s logo into the daily lives of their customers, encouraging brand loyalty and reinforcing the company’s key message.

PVC coasters also provide an eye-catching way of getting the word out about upcoming events, and are prized among collectors. Concerts, comedy tours and sporting events are increasingly advertised through the use of these promotional products. When distributed to bars in the local area, PVC coasters can boost ticket sales and event attendance, as well as give attendees a memento commemorating the event.

A lot of people have found PVC coasters to be fun keepsakes for important private events like weddings, birthdays, reunions and anniversaries. We can print photographic images onto coasters that will serve as a lifelong reminder of your most important events—for both you and your guests.

PVC coasters are surprisingly effective for advertising products and services that may have absolutely nothing to do with events or drink service. When people see your company advertised on a coaster, the sheer novelty might have them looking closely at your message.

Whatever message you’re looking to get across, PVC coasters are fun, imaginative promotional products to reach out to your audience.
