Rumors claim that the use of arm sleeves for basketball has no other intention but to cover up questionable tattoos NBA players have. This has been disproven by tried-and-tested basketball arm sleeves manufacturers that spend time with the research and development of technologies for athlete support.
Simply put, basketball sleeves are worn to warm up the player’s shooting arm, which is believed to enhance shooting accuracy. The medical explanation goes like this: during any strenuous activity, our muscles tend to tighten and generate lactic acid that causes muscle fatigue. This happens during the game when the players are not taking a shot. When it’s time to face the basket, tight muscles tend to prevent you from making the proper shooting position. A well-conditioned arm muscles throughout the game do not make baskets but they surely help increase performance.
Other than that, basketball sleeves also aid in injury prevention. The sleeves allow better blood circulation through the arm which keeps the muscles from cramping and swelling. No wonder basketball sleeves are one of the highest selling NBA merchandises. Not only are they really helpful for young players and basketball enthusiasts. They are also very stylish. Allen Iverson started wearing arm sleeves in 2001 as support for his elbow after a surgery. Basketball fans have been wearing one from then on.
When it comes to event marketing or promotional marketing, one of the most efficient ways to attract potential customers and foster engagement with existing ones is to give away promotional items or what is commonly referred to as swag.
While a lot of amateur (or unsuccessful) marketers try to look down on giveaway items and consider it shady as you’re trying to buy customer loyalty, the truth is that promotional items have a very powerful and ethical effect on the business—it allows you to narrow down the scope of marketing to people who will respond better to incentives.
Promotional items are not really bribes but incentives given to prospective customers who are open to being engaged. In a way, swag is a cost-effective measure as it allows you to attract only the ones who are willing to give your company the time of day, instead of wasting a lot of money on broad marketing campaigns. In fact, giveaway items give the impression of intimacy, as most swag are low cost—personal comfort items like t-shirts and mugs.
Now that we’re in the age of social media where encouraging engagement and building loyalty is far more important than just getting your name out there, promotional items are your best marketing tools. So instead of spending countless hours thinking of a catchy slogan and thousands of dollars on a TV advert, devote a fraction of those into a streamer with the words “stop by our booth and get a free [promo product]“.

STbands.com, which started in 2007 selling unique sweatbands that could be customized, has now split into two separate websites – Custom On It & Suddora. The idea came on a hot summer day in Las Vegas outside of SerTop HQ. We realized that STbands had a major branding crisis, half the sites web traffic was retail and half of it was custom. Some people wanted plain sweatbands, while others wanted custom sweatbands. Two different customer groups coming to one confused site.

For a period of seven years, between 1999 and 2006 breast cancer rates declined. Some attributed this, in part, to a Women’s Health Initiative research study which found that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was a contributing factor to the development of breast cancer incidences in women. After the study was released (2002), fewer doctors prescribed HRT to their patients. Continued research will help health professionals make such discoveries as the above, which can further reduce incidences of breast cancer. Purchasing gear such as breast cancer awareness sweatbands is one very simple way that people can help fund research, bring attention to the cause and pay for mammograms for women who can’t afford them on their own.
Research such of the Women’s Health Initiative, requires monies. Financial contributions made to organizations which champion breast cancer awareness and research help to save lives. The aforementioned is an example of how. There are numerous ways for individuals to do their part. Volunteering at cancer related events, donating money and buying gear, are just a few ways. Breast cancer awareness sweatbands only require a small investment. The proceeds from such purchases go toward breast cancer research and pays for mammograms for the under or uninsured. If everyone does a little, then a lot can be done to help improve care and hopefully one day, find a cure.
Advances in treatment have been responsible for declining breast-cancer related deaths. This downward trend in began in 1990. Treatment advances were developed by scientists and researchers who received funding from the government and charitable organizations. More work, however, still needs to be done. Breast cancer trails only lung cancer in rates of deaths for women. Fewer women survive breast cancer then any other form of the disease other than lung cancer. Because this is true, continued work is needed.
Buying breast cancer awareness sweatbands is one very simple, yet effective way to contribute to the work and research being done on the behalf of breast cancer survivors, those who have succumbed and the family members and friends who love(d) them. These pink sweatbands are a signal to others that the wearer is doing their part to help eradicate the disease.
Pink armbands for football are becoming increasingly popular. Well known, NFL (National Football League) players are wearing them to lend their support to this very important cause. Football armbands for breast cancer give men an opportunity stand up for the women in their lives (and women in general) who may one day have to do battle with this potentially deadly disease. These women might be their own wives, mothers, sisters, grandmothers and aunts. Wearing breast cancer awareness sweatbands is one way for men, who are interested in the aforementioned, to do so. Women can obviously wear them as well.

Breast cancer continues to be one of biggest threats to the health of American women. Roughly one in every eight women in this country will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lives. In 2010, it was estimated that more than 200,000 women would be diagnosed with this particular form of breast cancer. While much is being done to curb these figures, much remains to be done. Research and mammograms are two of women’s best weapons against the disease. Individuals that would like to join the war against breast cancer can do so by wearing Pink headbands. Official ones, purchased in support of breast cancer awareness, research and mammograms can help effect change, one person at a time.
Breast cancer awareness headbands are appropriate for a variety of occasions. They can be worn casually with jeans, during cancer awareness events (luncheons, walks, runs, etc.) and athletic events. They make great basketball headbands.
It is more important than ever to contribute to the cause of breast cancer awareness. In 2010, roughly 2.5 million American women were classified as breast cancer survivors.
In order for this number to increase, and perhaps one day, a cure be discovered, it is imperative that more research be done. Funding this research, in part, are American citizens. Some of these citizens are survivors. Others have loved ones who survived and others who have succumbed. Still others are simply people who care and who want to see breast cancer-related deaths become a thing of the past.
Today, doctors have more tools than they’ve ever had to combat breast cancer. There, however, is still a long way to go. Too many women and some men, continue to suffer from and succumb to the disease. Breast cancer awareness, education and a push for regular mammograms are all important components in the fight against the disease.
Not every person has the resources to give millions or even thousands of dollars toward breast cancer research but most people can do something. Purchasing pink headbands is an easy and cost effective way to do exactly that.
Pink seems to be the go-to accessory as of late. Even professional football players are donning pink shoes and wrist bands in honor or breast cancer awareness. They understand that while the dreaded disease does not normally affect them directly (men account for less than 1% of all new breast cancer cases), it does so indirectly when it claims the lives and health of their mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, girlfriend and wives. Why not join the movement? Purchase pink headbands and show your support.
You don’t have to wear a funny looking headband, like the one above, for it to have a positive impact on your game. You can go to your nearest sports authority and pick up a couple sports headbands and notice the difference right away.
Keep the sweat away from your eyes - As an athlete your going to sweat. There’s no way out of it. Your body overheats and needs to cool down, but that doesn’t mean that the natural process has to be gruesome! Cotton sweat headbands will work for you by absorbing that extra sweat in real time. As its dripping down from the hair on your forehead, and not smelling so great either, the cotton or terry cloth will catch it. In sports like tennis, basketball, and others this is a BIG deal because everything is happening so fast. One little blur of vision could have a daunting impact on the game.
Stay tuned for part 2!

Many basketball players wear arm sleeves and armbands while playing. Normally they pick the color of the basketball armband based on the color of their team.
There are many different colorful armbands available, so matching to your uniform won’t be a problem. A big concern among many players is the material that the bands are made of. Many wonder – is it going to be soft or irritating on my skin? Make sure the armbands you get are majority cotton so they will be nice and comfortable on your skin.
The Main Purpose
The main purpose of armbands for basketball is not to produce some flashy image but rather to take in sweat. Everyone sweats, but no one sweats like athletes – trust me. Our bodies are worked to the max so sweat acts as a cooling system. It is also possible to get armbands embroidered with a logo depending on your needs. This can only be done in bulk unless you do it through a local embroidery shop.
