There are 8 steps to make a rubber bracelet.
1st Design the artwork.
An artwork includes the information of order number, size, logo style, order quantity and other options like glowing and individual pack. The most importantly it shows what the bracelet looks like with your message or logo. It is direct way to check if wording, colors of bracelet and logo are correct. We are willing to make several mock-ups for your reference. The software for designing is CDR, so eps. or ai. file is appreciated for your logo. And there are variety of fonts for your choice. If the artwork get confirmed, we will proceed with it.
2nd Make the mould or film.
A mould is needed for debossed, embossed, colorfilled styles. We make a mould and set it in the machine, the high temperature of about 200℃ will solidify rubber into the sharp of bracelet. A mould is made from copper.
A film is functioned like a mould but it is for printed wristband only. It transfer the ink to the surface of bracelet as logo and wording.
3rd Prepare the rubber material.
A rubber bracelet is mainly made from silicone rubber, and some other accessories like curing agent which solidify the soft rubber, and Color masterbatch which makes bracelet colored.
We will mix these material evenly in a blender. It comes out a ball of rubber. We need to measure it into blocks of almost same weight which as much as the weight of a wristband. Normal size of 202*12mm bracelet is weighted about 6g.
4th Produce bracelets by the mould.
As we mentioned before in 2nd and 3rd step, we will transfer the blocks to bracelets by a set of moulding machine of high temperature. When it cool down, it gets the characteristic of a bracelet, smooth and strengthened.
5th Edge cutting.
A semi-product of rubber bracelet has rough edges, we have to cut it off. The rough edge is cut by machine. It will be good.
6th Color the logo and wording
The bracelet comes out from moulding machine without colors on the logo and lettering. We have to fill the ink or print the ink on the bracelet. Different style has different way of printing.
7th Clean the product
As the bracelet has static electricity, dust will be on the surface and hard to move off. So we need to clean the bracelet before packing. We usually wash it with water once.
After washing, we will check the quality.
8th Packing and delivery
We count the quantity by weighting. Normally packing will be 100pcs/bag, and 2500pcs/ctn. Individual packing is available.
