Why Tyvek (paper) Wristbands?


To answer this, we must first understand why DuPont™ Tyvek® is the ideal material from which wristbands are manufactured. When you hear Tyvek, you might first think of house wrap, packaging, or personal protection equipment. The reason for this is that Tyvek as a material is lightweight, durable, and resistant to water. For these reasons, Tyvek is also the ideal material to make wristbands for waterparks, concerts, bars and nightclubs, and festivals. Tyvek is a synthetic, paper-like material that is tear-resistant and comfortable. It is no wonder that Tyvek wristbands are often colloquially referred to as “paper wristbands”.


Tyvek Wristband Specs


We offer two Tyvek wristband (width) sizes–1” and ¾”. While our ¾” bands are our most popular, our 1” bands offer a greater surface area for customizations. Each band is 10” long to accommodate and wrist size. Each band also features a strong adhesive closure which prevents tampering and allows the band to fit comfortably around the wrist. Our Tyvek wristbands can be purchased in boxes of 100, 500, or 1000. We sequentially number each of the paper wristbands so that you can accurately track the number of patrons at your event.


Uses for Paper Wristbands


Paper wristbands offer a quick and simple short-term admission solution. These wristbands can be used for up to one week, and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. They are waterproof, tear-resistant, and will not fade in direct sunlight. The following are a few applications for paper wristbands.




When hosting an event, you want to make sure that all patrons present are, in fact, supposed to be present. The easiest way to do so is to provide a wristband upon entry. In fact, you can use different band colors to distinguish guests, VIPs, staff, and more.




Whether you are operating an amusement park or a waterpark, it is crucial that everyone at your facility has paid for entry. Fraudulent entry leads to lost revenue, which is terrible for businesses that have a lot of operating expenses. Wristbands allow you to identify unpaid visitors and remove them from your facilities. 




The best parties are those that are secure. At Wristband Specialty, we offer a variety of themes that fit any celebration. Our fun party wristbands can be used for birthdays, holiday events, work parties, and more.
