THE WRISTBAND AS A PROMOTIONAL ITEM: HOW EVERYTHING STARTED

THE WRISTBAND AS A PROMOTIONAL ITEM: HOW EVERYTHING STARTED

In the early Stone Age, both simple and more elaborate wristbands came into existence. Originally made out of organic material (such as animal teeth and amber) the materials and the production of wristbands advanced with the ability of humans to process bronze and copper . In the Middle Ages, silver and metal wristbands decorated with gemstones, represented their owner’s wealth but they were also used as shields. For the Celtics, wristbands were a sign of nobility and expression of their position of power. Today, wristbands are one of the most demanded promotional products to exist. Many of the varieties at allbranded contain a modern touch which could easily make you forget their age old origin.

THE WRISTBAND AS THE ULTIMATE FASHION ACCESSORY

We live in an age where a small detail can make or break an outfit. The great range of wristbands we have available guarantees that we have what you’re looking for, whatever statement you are looking to make.The trend of custom wristbands, made out of silicon, started with an innovative campaign. In 2004, the professional cyclist Lance Armstrong was wearing a bright yellow wristband with the print ‘Livestrong’ during the Tour de France. This was not only as a representation of his lifestyle but also Armstrong’s positive attitude in reference to his fight against cancer. This was followed by an outpour of support by celebrities worldwide, voicing solidarity. The result of which was the sale of 70 million printed wristbands with the profit donated to support people with cancer. After this iconic shift in the fashion industry, the sales have been consistent, reinforcing their value at present.
