We really are in the silicone age!
Wristbands, watches, Muffin pans, sex toys, breast implants and a lot more products are made in silicone.

You must have heard about the Silly Bandz!
Since May 2010 it’s an absolute craze over the youngs and teenagers. The trend started in the USA and is now invading Europe!!
The Silly Bandz or Crazy bandz are wristbands that are shaped like animals, cars, stars and many other shapes.
Kids and tennagers are becoming crazy over these shaped bands.

The debossed wristbands are the same model as the avant-gardist LIVESTRONG one from Lance Armstrong.
To deboss the wristband, a mould is produced especially for the order to meet the client’s requirements. This is why debossed wristands are more expensive and take more time to produce than printed wristbands or laser debossed…
