Screen printed wristbands or ink jet bracelets are silicone wristbands with the message printed on top of the bracelet. Similar to a screen printed t-shirt, the message is printed onto the wristband in a similar technique to a printer printing on a sheet of paper. The bracelets are loaded on to a form and printed on using a silicone based ink. Screen printing provides a greater thickness in ink.
Color coated bracelets allows you a cost effective option to the color filled style however it has its draw backs. While color coated wristbands are easy to read and make a big impression, this type band was created for promotional use and occasional wear. Over time, the outer layer will wear or fade; this process occurs quicker with daily wear.
