Do you have inventory that you need to keep track of, like food and alcohol? Event security wristbands are great to assist with this task.

Prevent counterfeits. TicketBand and SureImage Adhesive event security wristbands feature pre-printed bar codes for use with your bar code software system. Party crashing will never be easy again. With these event security wristbands, there's no way for anyone to sneak their pals into an event by passing off and essentially reusing one ticket. Some wristbands can be slipped off the wrist and passed off to a friend to get them into an event. Another counterfeiting strategy was to go to a party store and purchase cheap wristbands to wear in an attempt to sneak in to an event. Using event security wristbands, provided by PDC, puts a quick stop to all of these ideas!

Prevent transfer. Unlike bar code ID cards and badges, PDC event security wristbands are non-transferable. With a locking snap, it's impossible to remove them without a pair of scissors. To add a layer of security, ask your security staff to put the wristbands on your guests upon arrival. This method will help prevent guests from being able to adjust the wristband size; making it large enough to easily slip off and pass around.

Build your brand and promote your business, while boosting crowd control, by custom printing event security wristbands. You can imprint custom logos, taglines, promotions, or dates to promote your business, sponsors, and charities - and at the same time - add yet another layer of security! Event security wristbands are essentially a walking mini billboard. When an event is over, it's most likely guests will continue to wear their wristband for a day or two - maybe even weeks or months. If you imprint a fun tagline or an eye-catching logo on event security wristband, chances are high that you will create intrigue among friends and acquaintances of your guests.

You also might consider imprinting either a website address, QR code, or both onto event security wristbands. It's a great way to get people to "like" your business or charity on Facebook and gain Twitter followers. Social media is free and hot topics seem to spread like wild fire. To take full advantage, you could tie in a promotion. Maybe the QR code could be an invitation to your next event: "Bring a friend, get in free!" Or, have the scanned QR code direct guests to a website where they can get an exclusive discount on their next store or online purchase. Imprinting QR codes engages your guests and encourages them to take action.

If you'd like to cover the cost of event security wristbands - or maybe even make a profit - sell advertising space to a sponsor. They can have their logo or their own special promotion imprinted onto your event security wristbands. It's hot advertising space and well worth it to any sponsor.

Event security wristbands are an economical way to add layers of security to any event. By customizing your ID wristbands, you can also boost your branding and marketing program.
