SCRIBBLEBANDS ARE promis- ing to be more than the next big wave in youth wristbands, serving as a fun and functional accessory for all ages. Created in January of last year, the Scribbleband is a patented wristband that can be written and rewritten on, using an ordinary erasable marker. “With Scribblebands, users are now able to write their reminders, notes, phone numbers, school assign- ments and more, while keeping the message safe and in sight,” says owner and creator, Dave Bullock. “Some of the best re- sponses have been from parents who are writing fun messages and


important reminders to their kids.” In fact, it was Bullock’s role as a teacher and parent that helped inspire the product idea. “I grew increasingly tired of seeing my students and children constantly writing on their hand, or arm or that of a friend.”


With this very common pro-


blematic practice of note-taking, and the popularity of wristbands, Scribbleband is an inventive and profi table solution. “We are very encouraged about the future of Scribblebands,” says Bullock. The eco-friendly silicon bracelets are currently available in three sizes of fi ve unique and eye-catching swirl color designs, and feature a large writing surface. An increased band width provides extra dura- bility and support. The Scribbleband sells on


average at $4.95 retail, with a wholesale cost of $2.75, giving the retailer an 80 percent profi t. “Being as this is a new product, however, I’m providing a special four month discount between the months of April and July,” notes Bullock. The specials include a deal to buy 100 to 299 bands
