To clear things up we aren’t talking about 1 color pre-designed patterned Tyvek wristbands here were talking about Full Color personalized customization. Now that I think we all understand what we’re selling here, let’s talk about why you should make the switch from printing in black to full color.

First of all, wristbands are the perfect way to advertise your brand or more importantly the brand of your sponsors, and nothing catches your attention more than color this is why when companies design their logo its usually a full color logo. My question to you is, why go through all the hassle and expense in designing a color logo only to advertise or showcase it in black ink?

A study done from 1972-1986 took 65,752 ads and divided them into categories by size and color. Median noted scores were tallied and comparisons were made. 54% of individuals remembered seeing the ad which was in 4 colors while only 32% of individuals remembered seeing the ads shown in black and white. The conclusion? An advertiser can expect a higher readership from full color advertisements.

As if the study isn’t enough to peak your interest let’s look at 10 reasons why you should advertise in color:

1. Readers prefer to see ads in color
