With student Fresher's Week just around the corner, we take a look at some of the best designs of fresher's week wristbands and give you a step by step guide to creating your own design and how to make your own wristbands for this year's fresher's parties.

Our favourite fresher's wristbands

We've been working with student unions around the country ever since we started making custom wristbands some 24 years ago and every year the designs get better and better. Here are a few of our favourites:

The guys at Teeside SU created this colourful woven wristband and had it made with our Loop lock closure. You can see more fabric band designs here.

We love this one from Brighton & Sussex Medical School's fresher's week last year. They made a simple yet very effective design using a large typeface, and they opted for the classic metal ring security lock.

Here's another Loop Lock fabric wristband, this time from Nottingham SU, who had the brilliant idea of putting a local taxi firm's phone number on the wristband... handy for those drunken fresher's nights!
