ID&C entered the world back in 1995 with a vision to become the best wristband and accreditation supplier out there. Our passion for wristbands and our innovative approach to security print has helped us realise this dream over the last 20+ years. In 1999 we introduced the UK's first fabric wristband at Glastonbury Festival; a product which is now widely used at festivals and events around the world.

Founded by Chris and Gill Wilkey on their kitchen table in Royal Tunbridge Wells, ID&C is now run and owned by their son and son-in-law, Matt Wilkey and Steve Daly. Both Matt and Steve are current executive Directors of ID&C Ltd in the UK and they take very hands on approach to the day to day running of the business.

ID&C stands for Identification & Control, which is the forefront of our business, but a lot has changed since 1995. And, while we still make millions of tyvek, vinyl, fabric and silicone wristbands for all kinds of events, we now also provide a whole range of accreditation products such as lanyards, laminate passes, festival guides and ID cards.


We strive to always make the latest wristband technology available to our customers. With more events switching to cashless payments with the use of RFID and NFC technology, we are proud to be leading the way in innovative and forward thinking concepts. ID&C Ltd holds a number of patents on wristband technology developed in-house.
