Make Your Own Wristbands
If you are looking for a fresh new accessory to give your look a bit more edge, then why not design your own wristband? Each wristband is printed edge to edge across the front with your designs. This is a unique way to express your personal style. Made from durable neoprene fabric, our wristbands are an essential fashion accessory for both men and women. How can something so simple be so statement? Because your artwork will make it stand out. Upload a print that complements the rest of your look and create something that you will not be able to find in any shop.
Custom Wristbands, UK Handmade In London
Every wristband we make is made to order at our studio in London. A skilled team of technicians, designers and seamstresses work together to ensure a flawless finish. This makes every product totally unique and made just for you. When it comes to how your bands will look, just use your imagination. Upload graphic designs, funky illustrations, vibrant repeat patterns; anything you want. You could even turn them into a wearable business card, complete with your details and branding. Hand them out or flash them at your next networking event and prepare to impress. There is no minimum order, so whether you want to make one printed wristband or hundreds, you can.
Style it with
Make your own wristband, or a whole set of wristbands, to go with your favourite outfits. If you have trouble trying to find the perfect accessory to match that highly patterned dress or that graffiti print t-shirt - then why not create a wristband to match them? You can coordinate your bands to complement your look, no matter how unique that might be. Wristbands look particularly good when paired with a fresh and off-duty vibe. Think denim jackets and sneakers, bombers and skinny jeans, or mix up your look and pair them with an ultra-feminine, flowing dress. When you dictate the design, you dictate the style.

Everything from delivery to printing was perfect.
Excellent quality. Excellent service
The wristbands I ordered were better than I expected them to be, but I already had high expectations so I'm very happy with what received. The customer service was excellent even when I had made a mistake with my design the help I was given from the live chat helped me fix it. I will order more products in the future. Great overall experience!

Frequently asked questions:
What fabric are the custom wristbands made from?
Your new accessory is made from one of our favourite fabrics; custom printed neoprene. This soft, spongy and flexible fabric is the perfect choice for a wristband; it is comfortable to wear and it is great at showing off your designs. Thanks to its brilliant print qualities, your artwork will look highly detailed and vibrant. Neoprene is a durable material that will hold up against every day general wear and tear.
What parts of the printed wristbands can I customise?
When you design your own wristband, you can print whatever you want onto the front of the band. The dimensions of the print space are 28mm wide and 21.5cm long. This gives a long and slightly narrow print space, edge to edge on the front of the wristband. To ensure you make the most of the space, we recommend uploading repeat patterns in bold colours. This way, details from your design won't be lost.
What can I use these wristbands for?
The sky really is the limit. We have seen customers design wristbands for so many different uses. A popular choice is designers who want to add a fun accessory to their collection. These wristbands make great bracelets, especially as you can design them to complement all of your favourite outfits. They also make unique friendship bracelets. Whatever you use yours for, we'd love to hear from you.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
