How Hotels and Resorts Can Enhance Events by Printing their Own Custom Wristbands
Venues of all types and sizes use colored wristbands to better manage event access and security, but in a world where anyone can buy blank wristbands off the shelf, is color coding alone enough? The ability to print your own custom wristbands with a color wristband printer provides even greater control and allows for custom branding. Here's what you need to know about in-house wristband printing.
Benefits of Printing Your Own Custom Printed Wristbands
With a color wristband maker such as the Epson TM-C3500, you can print custom wristbands in advance or on demand. From a security standpoint, this translates into:
•Improved event security — Printed wristbands have long been used for identification purposes at hospitals. Using printed text, barcodes, or identity information such as a small photo ID, your security staff is better equipped to verify that the person wearing the wristband is the appropriate one. Custom wristbands can prevent guests from sharing their wristbands with others upon exiting your event.
- Shorter queues — Printing your own color wristbands reduces wristband fraud and improves security, which in turn, allows for a more streamlined process. For example, an ID check at check-in would verify the guest's age. If over 21, the printed wristband could reflect that, allowing for access into 21-and-up areas without having to stop for additional age verification.
Use Cases for Custom Hotel Wristbands
Hotels and resorts host a variety of events, making issuing custom wristbands a great idea for:
