Are Fabric Wristbands for Festivals?
- Fabric Wristbands are the perfect choice for Festivals. Many such festivals have very distinctive branding and with full colour printing available we can match the Wristband to other festival artwork. Malta Wristbands offer a locked closure as standard which is the industry norm for Festivals.
- Woven or Cloth bands have an extremely long life expectancy which runs into several months. Many festivals are held outdoors and a Wristband needs to be secure and strong to last the duration of the event. We use the highest grade of products to ensure our Fabric Wristbands are top quality in all conditions.
Can Fabric wristbands be removed?
Fabric or Woven Wristbands can be fitted with a variety of closures depending on your needs. Locked closures ensure the Wristband cannot be transferred to a third party and would need to be cut off. A flexible closure allows the wearer to remove the Wristband and re-apply when suitable which is a useful option.
Malta Wristbands supplies Fabric or cloth tags with locked closures as standard. Locked closure can be in the form of standard Barrel lock, Aluminium tube with clamp or crimper or even Bamboo. These options should ensure that all event organisers in Malta find a solution which is ideal for their specific event.
Fabric Wristbands Summary:
Bars and Nightclubs generally organise events lasting just a few hours over the course of a day or evening. As such, Fabric or Woven Wristbands are not used extensively this area. Some pub crawl events and language students do use Fabric Wristbands which grants them access to and/or discounted drinks at certain bars and Nightclubs. Bars and Nightclubs in Malta could order Fabric Wristbands if they wanted them to be worn on a long term basis as some sort of advertisement for their establishment.
Fabric or Woven Wristbands are the perfect candidate for any and all Festivals being held in Malta or Gozo. Festival Wristbands can last weeks (or even months) even in a warm climate like Malta where people are likely to swim on a regular basis. Festivals generally require a locked closure to ensure only paid guests are in attendance and Malta Wristbands stock a number of locked closures which would be an ideal fit. Fabric Wristbands can be printed in full colour to ensure your attendees are left with a lasting impression of your event.
As a general rule of thumb, many Charities in Malta opt for Silicone Wristbands which can be worn for months or years at the discretion of the wearer. If for any reason a Silicone Wristband is not suitable, then a Fabric or Woven Wristband would be the next best option. If the Fabric or Woven Wristband is equipped with a flexible closure then it can be worn or removed as needed which makes it well suited for generating awareness for a Charity or Event. Unlike a Silicone band, a sublimated fabric band can be printed in full colour.
Many Hotels and Guesthouses in Malta use Vinyl Wristbands as their default option. However, as environmental concerns grow and Fabric Wristbands become more widely available we are seeing this trend start to reverse slowly. Fabric Wristbands can be made from Bamboo or Recycled Plastic (RPET) which makes them an ideal candidate for Hotels looking to reduce or eliminate their use of single use plastics. We expect to see more hotels switching from Vinyl to Fabric Wristbands in the near future. Due to the fact that Fabric Wristbands have many locked closure options (including Bamboo) they are well suited for use in a Hotel setting.
Customized event wristbands come in all shapes and sizes – Including Fabric Wristbands. Depending on the duration of your Event and whether entrance is against a payment or ticket then Fabric Wristbands could be the ideal solution for your event in Malta. Many conferences, seminars, music events and multi day parties use Fabric Wristbands and they could be perfectly suited for your function. Full colour print is available and Wristbands can even be made from Recycled Plastic (RPET) or Bamboo.
