Our Bands Withstand Father Time

Thursday, June 04, 2015


Many things wane over time – but not our rubber bands.

We recently learned the story of how rubber bands no younger than 52 years old assisted with a recent move:

A friend of mine was closing his promotional items (2nd generation) business. He brought over a very old box of your size 3, red, TY band rubber bands. I almost tossed them - the address still has New York 16, NY, and we started using zip codes in 1963. The box is vintage, so I put them in a drawer. Today, I needed to band up some brochures for a client. The rubber bands we have are heavy and thick, so, I pulled out this old box, and guess what...they are still perfect! Not one broke, they're not dry and brittle, it's like I bought them today! These rubber bands are at least 52 years old. Just thought you'd like to know that your company makes one heck of a rubber band!

Since our beginning, we have strived to make innovative products that meet the highest standards of quality and durability. We are thrilled to learn this box of rubber bands met those standards. Thank you Sandi for sharing this with us!
