The following advice is provided to you in the hopes that it will assist you in developing an incredible concept for a custom wristband.
Keeping the design simple is the best way to ensure maximum exposure. When you put text on top of a picture, the design you end up with may need to be more precise, making it difficult for your personnel to read what’s written on the bracelet from a distance. Therefore, the final design could look amazing but counterproductive to the bracelets’ intended use.
Having a Strong Contrast Is Useful
When we talk about visibility, contrast is another critical factor. Imagine you are reading text that is bright orange on top of a backdrop that is brilliant yellow. You’ll realize that it’s a complex task. There’s a good explanation for why the hues orange and blue, which are pretty different from one another, are included in most movie posters. Create a design for the custom wristbands you will use by giving it much contrast to make it easier to see. Use black or any other dark color for the lettering if the custom wristband is bright yellow. For example, if the custom wristband is neon yellow, use black.
Don’t use thin and small Font
When printed, the text shown on a computer screen cannot look exactly like it does on the screen. To begin, there is a limit to how tiny and thin writing can be done while still being able to be read by the average person. Second, from a hardware point of view, there is a cap on the level of detail that a printer can print. Avoid using a point size 6 or lower Font if possible since the text of that size becomes challenging to read when printed on a custom wristband.
Avoid Using Low-Quality Web Images
If you want to put photographs or other pictures on your custom wristband, check to see that they have a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch. In general, you should avoid utilizing clip art that comes with any application and photos you obtain online. Web pictures generally have a resolution of 72 dots per inch, which is far lower than the recommended 300. Although it is not required to have a raw picture, it is impossible to have excessive detail.
Retain Your Color Scheme
When creating custom wristbands for an event, it is essential to keep the event’s color scheme in mind. If you use too many colors, the design can look muddy; if you choose too dark colors, it might not be easy to see the writing. In general, if something is difficult to see on the screen of your computer, it will also be challenging to read in person. If you are unsure about a design or have any reservations about it, you should print out the design and hang it up where you can easily view it.
Be conscious of different color profiles
It is tempting to assume that a printed picture or image would seem precisely the same as on a computer screen, but the colors may sometimes shift slightly when printed. Something that looks like a brilliant red on the screen of a computer may turn out a darker hue when it is printed.
Ink cartridges for printers normally use a cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK) color profile, but the color profile used by your image editor is likely a red, green, and blue (RGB) color profile. When a printer encounters an RGB picture, it will convert the image to CMYK, which may cause the colors to change very subtly. On top of that, the color may seem different to you since the monitor you are using may not be calibrated correctly, which is a contributing factor.
