Finding new and innovative ways to raise funds is a continuous problem for many charities and if you work for a charity you’ll be all too aware of how difficult it can be to make your message stand out from the rest.
In this world of social media, 24 hour news and mobile communication, charities are increasingly looking for eye-catching ways to raise funds and compete for our attention. Silicone charity wristbands have become the fundraising medium of choice for charities both large and small: fashionable, colourful and cheap to produce, charity wristbands are perfect for keeping costs low and maximising the funds you raise.
Silicone charity wristbands are available to order from a wide range of UK suppliers. Try www.onlywristbands.co.uk or similar, each offering a number of different styles of wristbands, varying in price according to style and the quantity ordered. Silicone wristbands are very cheap to produce so it’s worth bearing in mind that the more you order, the less you’ll pay per bracelet but before ordering, there are a number of things you should consider.
The more charity wristbands you’ll sell, the more money you’ll raise but having a carefully thought-out sales strategy means you’ll maximise your fundraising profits and minimise the risk of being left with boxes of unsold bracelets! Start by thinking about where and how you’ll sell your bracelets: are you going to send bracelets in the post as a part of a national fundraising campaign or will your wristbands be distributed in the street by your fundraising team? Sending wristbands in the post will obviously increase your overall costs whilst sales stands and on-street distribution require a lot of time and energy.
The design of your bracelets is crucial and the style of wristbands you choose will affect the overall cost. Silicone charity wristbands can be ordered in a number of different styles with the cheapest option being printed wristbands. Printed wristbands are also ideal if the design of your charity logo is fairly detailed, however this type of bracelet is the least hardwearing option as the print can have a tendency to wear-off over time.
Debossed silicone wristbands have the text or logo raised above the surface of the bracelet making them hardwearing and ideal for simple text designs. Embossed wristbands are equally effective and are the most popular option; this type of bracelet has the text or logo ‘engraved’ onto the surface. Colour-filled debossed bracelets are the most expensive to produce as the engraved text or logo is ‘filled’ with coloured ink to make the image stand out – perfect if you are looking for a long-lasting, hardwearing wristband design. It’s worth bearing in mind that regardless of the style of bracelet you choose, the bracelet itself can be produced in almost any colour or combination of colours and can be exactly matched to the colours of your charity logo.
If you’re looking for a new way to highlight the work of your charity, why not consider using charity wristbands to raise funds? Cheap, eye-catching and highly effective, silicone charity wristbands are appreciated by young and old alike and could prove to be the perfect way to get your message across.
