Wristbands and Lanyards being the in thing for every event or party, we were trying to place an order for our company event. We searched the top sites on google and found many companies that deal with things we needed, but instead of placing the order I thought we should first check for the cheapest and then place the order as all sites were claiming huge discounts and we have ample time for the event which is being held in June.Below were the few top sites we found and did our research on:24hourwristbands- This is the 1st site that pops up on google. I tried placing an order for 500 bands with 100 free bands and individual packaging.Pros:1. User friendly website2. Large variety of products3. A digital proof option
Cons:1. The 100 bands are not entirely free, there is a handling charge2. There are not many color options visible on the first page3. There are only 2 sizes on the website – Adult and Youth4. There is no option to choose font color where we select band color.(If you select multiple colors this can be an issue)5. There is no discount code available on the site, so it really is not completely online if you want a discount6. They claim that they are the cheapest, they are not as there are hidden costs7. They claim not to have a minimum but that is not entirely TRUE8. Chat option available but not very helpful.
Wrist-band.com – This site is for wristbands and lanyards both and also offers customized tattoos. The pros and cons we found were:Pros:1. Really easy order process2. User friendly website3. Many options in the silicone bands and lanyards4. They have various rush options5. Digital proof option6. Give 100 free bandsCons:1. The heading says 90% off, the website says 80% off but neither is TRUE.2. No discount coupon on site, you will need to call the company3. If you get the discount code, it does not give you the 10% discount it claims to give.4. They claim to be the cheapest else money back. The site is NOT cheap AT ALL. The costs are more than the above mentioned site.5. Chat not helpful at all6. Customer service people on phone are difficult to understand
Wristbandd.com – This is a solely wristband site but when you call they have a lot of other products available
