Z-Band Fun and Z-Band Splash Wristbands

26 April 2019
Zebra's innovative print-on-demand, bar-coded wristbands provide a cost-effective solution for entertainment and hospitality industries. Brightly coloured and durable, they’re both fun and practical, enabling cashless point-of-sale and access management.

Using a Zebra bar-code printer (desktop or wristband printer) and direct-thermal Z-Band Fun or Z-Band Splash wristbands you can:

  • Reduce ticket fraud – and the revenue losses associated with counterfeits and theft 
          – Z-Band wristbands are blank and don’t have value until they’re printed on demand
          – They can be printed with the guest’s name for access verification
          – They’re tamper-evident and non-transferable, and include everything paid for on one wristband
  • Improve transaction speeds. Employees simply scan a bar code instead of exchanging cash and working cash registers 
  • Enhance each guest’s experience. Guests enjoy increased convenience and can be rewarded with special offers and benefits
  • Enjoy lower total cost of ownership compared to RFID wristbands. While bar-coded Z-Band Fun and Z-Band Splash offer cashless payment and patron data-capture benefits similar to RFID, the bar-coded bands cost significantly less. 
Zebra wristbands

We offer two types of wristband - Z-Band Fun and Z-Band Splash. The key difference is that Z-Band Splash bands are water-resistant and are ideal for water parks and resorts. 

Z-Band Fun

  • Adhesive closure
  • One-day use
  • Minimal water exposure
  • Great for carnivals, amusement parks, fairs, festivals,
    theme parks, zoos, aquariums, sporting events, concerts and nightclubs

Z-Band Splash

  • Adhesive closure
  • Multi-day use
  • Durable, water-resistant adhesive great for excessive water exposure
  • Perfect for water parks, resorts and cruise lines


The wristbands come in two forms:
- On a roll - suitable with Zebra desktop printers requiring wrsitbands on 25mm cores (eg ZD410 etc).
- In a wristband cartridge for Zebra ZD510 or HC100 wrsitband cartridge printers. 
It is very important that you order the correct product as the wristbands will not work with the incorrect printer.
