Fabric Festival Woven Wristbands in Ireland Personalised Fanbands for events

Fabric wristbands have many different names including fan bands and even woven wristbands. They are a great long term product commonly found at multi day events such as festival’s and music events. Fabric bands come with various locking options including barrel locks, clips and aluminium beads. This gives the product great flexibility in that it can be worn only once or multiple times depending on the intended use. Custom fabric wristbands are highly durable and can be easily worn for up to four weeks even in harsh outdoor conditions. Custom fan bands come in 3 types of finish; the 2 most popular being woven and sublimated, together with silk screen printing;

  • Woven wristbands all the most classic product when thinking of Fabric wristbands. They are individually weaved using yarn on a loom and are ideal for simple designs. The woven bands look great and are very comfortable when worn
  • Sublimated wristbands are manufactured by transferring the required image onto the ribbon material directly. This method is very popular as it shows fine details and has no limits on the colours used so is ideal for complex designs and gradients
  • Silk screen wristbands are produced using special ink on a mesh of prefabricated cotton material. The costs involved mean it is a viable product for small orders but not as cheap as the two other types on larger quantities

Fabric festival wristbands are extremely difficult to reproduce and as such offer a secure option in controlling entrance to any events. Many people continue to wear the wristbands long after the event is finished and this is an added bonus in terms of brand awareness! We are delighted to have recently launched a fully interactive online designer where customers can create their unique fabric wristbands. Choose from up to 25 colours and designs as the background colour and add text and logos in full colour. Remember to keep any important text or logos in the central 150mm of the band – as this is the area that is visible when the band is worn. Production time for all custom printed fabric wristbands is approximately 2 weeks. Talk to us on live chat or email for assistance with your customized fabric wristbands.
