The Most Affordable Badges for Over 50 Years

Features of Synthetic Wristbands

OTTO offers three basic wristband types: paper, plastic, and cloth. The paper is called either Tyvek or the name of some other synthetic stock. (OTTO uses one of those; our product is branded ‘Ruff ‘n’ Tuff™.’). The plastic used is vinyl (PVC). The cloth is woven and embroidered from a variety of yarns.

  • Tyvek Bands
  • Note: Tyvek Bands are in general meant for less sophisticated art, larger runs, longer turnarounds.
    • Low cost
    • Long runs
    • Split in even box counts (500 per)
    • Simple art (generally black-on-color)
    • Color-codeable (in a limited set of colors)
  • Ruff ‘n’ Tuff™ Bands
  • Note: Ruff ‘n’ Tuff™ bands are OTTO‘s in-house brand of synthetic wristbands. We developed them to address what we saw as shortcomings of Tyvek bands in terms of logistics and production. We are able to offer shorter runs, full-color art, higher-quality printing, and greater flexibility in variable data.
    • Reasonable cost compared to price for custom, full-color Tyvek bands
    • Short, flexible runs
    • Quick turnaround
    • Full-color art
    • More-flexible run configuration
    • Color-codeable (printed in full color, can be color-coded to any color you like).

Features of Woven Wristbands

Woven wristbands came about, and have gained massive popularity at multi-day festivals, because they are far more comfortable to wear than plastic, hospital-style wristbands. Add to that the fact that there are far fewer (almost none) restrictions on the type and color(s) of art to be used in the process, and you have a winner.
