Wristbands To Spread Importance Of Hand Washing

Hand Washing Wristbands Stop Spread of Disease

Wash your hands. It’s a simple message, but one that not everyone implements. Especially in the midst of cold and flu season, hand-washing is an important step in curbing the spread of infectious disease, such as the flu and other illnesses. Hand washing wristbands can help remind people to wash their hands regularly.

Hand Washing Wristbands

Consider a custom wristband with the message “Always Wash Your Hands” or “Stay Healthy – Wash Your Hands.” When building your custom wristbands to encourage hand washing, choose the colors, artwork, style, and a special message that’s will work for your purpose. Here are some ideas for your personalized bands:

  • Use bright colors, especially if your hand-washing wristbands are for kids.
  • Use swirled or segmented colors or different colored text to make your wristbands really stand out.
  • Get a variety of wristband styles in different colors for different days of the week or with different messages for a longer hand-washing campaign.
  • Create custom key chain to go with your bracelets.
  • Create customized 1” thick bands to add more information to your bracelet.
