Everything You Need to Know About Designing and Using Charity Wristbands

If you are a charity or charitable organisation or just want to raise some funds for a charity that is close to your heart, charity bracelets or charity wristbands are a fantastic option. Perfect for both raising awareness out and about and being sold as fundraising merchandise, custom charity wristbands are always a popular option.


Why Charity Wristbands?

Charity bracelets have always been a popular tool for fundraising and that doesn’t look like it will be changing any time soon. Whether you want to design bespoke wristbands for charity to raise money for your cause or are looking for a good fundraising tool to raise money for your school or club, charity bracelets are ideal. By designing your own, you’ll have a stylish accessory people will want to wear but also a key tool for raising awareness of your name and message outside of fundraising events.


Designing Custom Bracelets for Fundraising Top Tips

When it comes to designing your own charity bracelets, the world is your oyster. There are endless colour and style options to choose from so you’re sure to find something that encapsulates your charity’s ethos. Our in-house design service is on-hand to help you create the perfect wristband design should you need it but here are our top tips for creating custom charity bracelet designs.


1. Choose Your Wristband Background

The first thing you’ll want to decide on is the colour or your charity bracelet. Do you want a single colour to let your message shine or are you looking for a more fun option with multiple colours in a stripe? Both offer the option to personalise your colours to fit your charity’s branding with hundreds to choose from.

2. Choose Your Style

Would you like your custom charity wristbands embossed with a message or debossed with your motto? Would you like your debossing to be filled in with a colour or your choice or left plain? Are you looking for charity wristbands that hold no message but are the colours of your charity or organisation?


3. Choose Your Message

Will your charity bracelet be a broad fundraising tool with your charity name on and motto or are you creating custom charity wristbands for a specific campaign or aim? Choose what you would like to include on your wristband and keep it precise to let your message shine. Do you want your message repeated around the length of the wristband or in one long phrase or would you like two sections of text on your wristband split into two phrases? The choice is yours!


How to Use Custom Wristbands as a Fundraising Tool

Once you’ve created your custom charity bracelets, it’s time to show them to the world. Distribute your charity wristbands among team members for them to wear during events and out and about to raise awareness or use them to aid charitable sign ups. There are plenty of ways to use your new custom charity wristbands to raise money and awareness for your charity, we’ve listed some of our favourites below:


  • Sell your new wristbands to raise money
