And as we see our activity calendars grow with everything from barbecues, to camping trips, to pool parties, this also means some time will inevitably go towards preparing for such events. But it doesn’t have to be a task to dread, for no matter the occasion, we at JetBands® know a thing or two about how to make your next summer get-together a success while still keeping it personal, safe, and easy to facilitate.
keep your cool and your guests comfortable for your outdoor event
Typically, outdoor summer events are exponentially more enjoyable because they take advantage of the sunshine and beautiful scenery, allowing more room to plan your activities just as you envision. For example, lawn games like Bocce Ball, giant chess, and badminton are interactive yet laidback, relatively easy to setup, and don’t require a lot of extra space. This means there isn’t a ton of prep work for your guests to feel comfortable and more willing to participate.
Of course the more elaborate affairs that require in-depth organizing and developing are exciting to look forward to, and often the complexity of executing such an event may be inspiring in and of itself. Nevertheless, managing all the duties and responsibilities that come with such a role can prove challenging. Whether you’re leading a company picnic, church event, food or culture festival, there are plenty of ways to keep your cool while ensuring your guests have an amazing time. Some of our favorites, of course, include JetBands®.
don't forget security for your mid to large events
It can be easy to focus all your attention on just the entertaining aspects of an event and unknowingly overlook the more practical elements. For instance, safety and security are extremely important concerns to consider. This is especially for mid-to-large-tier events such as music festivals, triathlons/fun runs, and fundraisers.
JetBands® are manufactured from a lightweight and durable material called Tyvek®. Created by American company DuPont™️, Tyvek® is the perfect material to construct our JetBands® from because it is waterproof and disposable. And while they may look and feel just like paper, they are actually comprised of fibers that make them impossible to tear by hand. Each JetBand contains a tamper-resistant, adhesive closure which self-destroys once the bracelet is corrupted or removed. This simple but powerful feature means your bands can dual purpose as admissions tickets; this helps to keep unpaid patrons from entering your event, as well as paid guests from sharing their bands with others.
Additionally, JetBands® wristbands are a quick and effortless solution. They take just a couple seconds to adhere to the attendee’s wrist and can be worn all day long with comfort and ease. And although we all want the fun to last, when it’s time to call it a night, you can collect the used JetBands® and recycle them with your other #2 plastics.
step up your wristband designs with our free adobe illustrator template
After spending so much time refining the elements of your festivities, it’s no wonder you want every little detail to be tailored to perfection. We feel the same way, that’s why we created our JetBands® Online Designer tool. With preloaded background themes/colors, fonts, and clipart, we streamline the process while still offering infinite design possibilities.
However, we know many of you love to take your vision to the next level, and that’s where our Adobe Illustrator template comes into play. Whereas our Online Designer tool efficiently applies your personalization to all 10 JetBands® on the sheet, our Adobe Illustrator template allows you to customize each individual band strip with varying styles, images, and information.
And while the Adobe Illustrator template is useful for creative reasons, it serves very objective purposes as well. For example, you can customize your single bands with barcodes that can be scanned at entry to ensure security is reinforced. Or, outfitting sequential numbering to the separate bands permits you to monitor strict capacity restrictions or account for raffles, auctions, and giveaways.

Summer is the season with endless things to do, places to go, and people to see, and incorporating JetBands® wristbands makes all those activities that much more fun. No matter the goal, be it safety, manageability, or simply adding a personal touch, JetBands® are there to deliver the solutions that allow you to make the most of your event and the summertime as a whole.
