A Crash Course on Silicone Wristbands

Some still find it rather hard to express themselves fully, even through the safety of a computer screen.

Quite opposite are the Embossed wristbands, in which the words and designs are molded to protrude out of the band.

Color-filled wristbands, however, are similar to Debossed wristbands but instead of the  recessions being the same color with the rest of the band, they are in contrasting hues to  make the words stand out, making them even more eye catching.
