Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest nights a year for restaurants and bars, and staff may become overwhelmed if their facility is not sufficiently prepared for the inevitable Valentine’s Day rush.
Since Valentine’s Day has become such a largely commercialized holiday, many places of business create promotional Valentine’s Day items to give to customers, such as pink or red silicone wristbands with a company’s name imprinted onto the surface. Likewise, charities or fundraising committees also follow the Valentine theme by creating awareness campaigns offering keepsake items, such as custom Valentine’s Day wristbands, in exchange for donations to their charity or non-profit organization. Even churches and temples have Valentine’s Day events for the members and children of their congregations.
Valentine’s Day wristbands can help to keep track of attendees, verify age, and more. Whether you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day event at your bar or restaurant, or are collecting donations to raise awareness for heart disease Valentine’s Day wristbands are perfect for organizational and fundraising needs.
BARS, RESTAURANTS, & NIGHTCLUBS
Bars, restaurants, and nightclubs often have special deals and discounts to attract large crowds for Valentine’s Day. It is likely going to be a crowded evening, and if alcohol is going to be served, age verification wristbands are a must. Bright pink and red “Over 21” wristbands tie perfectly into the Valentine’s Day color scheme. If you are looking for fun wristbands that sparkle under any type of lighting, holographic wristbands are available in a variety of glittery Valentine’s Day colors.
Customizing wristbands costs just a couple cents more per piece, making it easy to design your very own personalized Valentine’s Day patron ID. You can print your own custom messages, such as “Valentine’s Day 2013 at Club Dance,” on the wristbands for your bar, restaurant, or nightclub. Your custom wristbands will serve as a special Valentine’s Day memory to your guests.
Schools may also find wristbands helpful if they are going to be hosting a Valentine’s Day dance in the evening or a school-wide Valentine’s Day party during the day. Many elementary schools have a Valentine’s Day parade for their students, and teachers or staff may want to purchase wristbands to keep count of children and verify the ID of adult volunteers. Vinyl and plastic wristbands feature non-transferable closures.
Kids love see-through wristbands, available in multiple colors that work perfectly for Valentine’s Day. If your school is hosting a Valentine’s Day dance in the evening, give students a wristband keepsake to take home with them. Silicone wristbands are trendy for high school students. You can custom print line art, such as hearts, onto the surface of the silicone wristbands and use silkscreen or color-fill to add a personalized message such as, “Royal HS Valentine’s Dance 2013.”
Stores and other places of business often decorate for Valentine’s Day. Places like dental offices, medical offices, and banks will often put a basket of Valentine’s Day candies or other freebies out for customers to take. Instead of handing out candies like so many other businesses, you can purchase custom wristbands with Valentine’s Day messages to give to your customers. You can easily fit short phrases like, “First Bank 2013 Valentine’s Day,” or “Happy Valentine’s Day from Dr. Smith.” Silicone wristbands serve as a fun and free promotional gift that customers of all ages will enjoy. Unlike candy, which after consumed is quickly forgotten, your Valentine’s Day wristbands can be worn for months on end.
Economically-priced promotional wristbands can serve as free advertisement on anyone who wears them. Wristbands are an excellent conversation starter, and people will be likely to remember your business because of your colorful Valentine’s Day wristbands they see someone they know wearing.
FUNDRAISING & AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS
Wristbands are also great for fundraising and awareness campaigns. You can use Valentine’s Day wristbands as promotion for your awareness campaign. For example, if you are raising funds for a heart disease fundraising campaign, it would be clever to tie in Valentine’s Day because it is commonly associated with hearts. Order pink, red, purple, and white Valentine’s Day silicone wristbands with custom messages like, “Putting an End to Heart Disease,” or “2013 Heart Disease Prevention.” You can ask for $1 or $2 donations for the custom Valentine’s Day themed awareness wristbands and give the money to the appropriate charity.
Silicone wristbands are ideal for fundraising and awareness campaigns because not only are they rewearable, but they are extremely fashionable and popular. People will be happy to donate several dollars to your charitable cause because it makes them feel good to give back to society. People will also enjoy wearing their awareness campaign wristband because others will ask them what they are and it will give people an opportunity to explain how they helped spread some love for the less fortunate this Valentine’s Day.
CHURCHES & TEMPLES
Lastly, churches and temples that are hosting Valentine’s Day events should use wristbands to help keep events organized, keep track of attendees, manage food and beverages, and to hand out as prizes. It may be fun to host a Valentine’s Day fair with an assortment of games and booths. You can order custom wristbands in Valentine’s Day colors with your church or temple’s name printed on the surface of the wristband. It’s easy to fit a message such as, “Church of Christ Valentine’s Day 2013” or “Valentine’s 2013 at Temple Judea.” Wristbands will add some lighthearted fun to your event and will give it a professional touch. Your congregation will be able to look back at their keepsake silicone wristbands from Valentine’s Day and have fond memories from your event.
