ad bands® /qrc bands
Ad Bands® were created in 1986 as the “Original Printed Rubber Band” and the multiple functions are
endless. They can be used as an easy way to promote your message by adding QR codes*, as handouts, wrist bands or on-pack/in-pack premiums. (Ad Bands® are also available in black light ink, offered
in 6 colors, so your message will glow under a black light. Call for pricing.)
*A QR code (short for Quick Response) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera phones. QR Codes will only scan when the band is
relaxed to its original size and proportion, and require a 3/4” width size band or greater.

fotoflex™ wristbands
FotoFlex™ is the world’s first stretchable wristband that uses four-color imprinting of digital
graphics, allowing you to turn your rubber wristband into a mini-billboard for maximum
promotional effect. Each wristband is made to order and guarantees durable crisp images that
make for a highly visible product. The product is unique in that it cracks when stretched, but it does
not flake and will return to near photo quality when relaxed.
These wristbands are custom printed to exact specifications including faces, event logos, sponsors’
logos, dates, special offers, etc. for a truly unique wristband that boosts your brand. They can also
be printed with QR coding and other data options for enhanced interactivity with the wearer.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Rubber is a natural product. Therefore slight
variations in color and texture are to be expected
and are not considered to be a defect. Rubber tends to stretch to some degree during the
printing and cutting process, therefore, not all
imprints will be perfectly centered.
