Our website have been in this field for years. We have our own factory, design, produce and sell high quality rubber bracelet all over the world, millions a year.
Even it is a small and simple item, but it is not so easy to make. Let’s learn about how to make a rubber wristband
There are 8 steps to make a rubber wristband
1st Design the artwork.
An artwork includes the information of order number, size, logo style, order quantity and other options like glowing and individual pack. The most importantly it shows what the bracelet looks like with your message or logo. It is direct way to check if wording, colors of wristband and logo are correct. We are willing to make several mock-ups for your reference. The software for designing is CDR, so eps. or ai. file is appreciated for your logo. And there are variety of fonts for your choice. If the artwork get confirmed, we will proceed with it.
2nd Make the mould or film.
A mould is needed for debossed, embossed, colorfilled styles. We make a mould and set it in the machine, the high temperature of about 200℃ will solidify rubber into the sharp of wristband. A mould is made from copper.
A film is functioned like a mould but it is for printed wristband only. It transfer the ink to the surface of wristband as logo and wording.
3rd Prepare the rubber material.
A rubber wristband is mainly made from silicone rubber, and some other accessories like curing agent which solidify the soft rubber, and Color masterbatch which makes personalized wristbands colored.
We will mix these material evenly in a blender. It comes out a ball of rubber. We need to measure it into blocks of almost same weight which as much as the weight of a wristband. Normal size of 202*12mm bracelet is weighted about 6g.
4th Produce wristband by the mould.
As we mentioned before in 2nd and 3rd step, we will transfer the blocks to wristband by a set of moulding machine of high temperature. When it cool down, it gets the characteristic of a wristband, smooth and strengthened.
5th Edge cutting.
A semi-product of cheap custom wristbands has rough edges, we have to cut it off. The rough edge is cut by machine. It will be good.
6th Color the logo and wording
The wristband comes out from moulding machine without colors on the logo and lettering. We have to fill the ink or print the ink on the bracelet. Different style has different way of printing.
7th Clean the product
As the cheap custom silicone wristbands has static electricity, dust will be on the surface and hard to move off. So we need to clean the wristband before packing. We usually wash it with water once.
After washing, we will check the quality.
8th Packing and delivery
We count the quantity by weighting. Normally packing will be 100pcs/bag, and 2500pcs/ctn. Individual packing is available. It is good to go now.
