What Are Band-It & STICK?
Band-It® and StickTM create many benefits when added to your printed advertisement. By adding either Band-It or StickTM you can transform most any product into a door hanger. Ordering Flyers? Add Band & Stick & you can keep some as hand outs and distribute others door to door as door hangers. Band-It is our proprietary enhancement that due to its innovative and versatile design it can be attached to not only modern styles of door knobs but also various carryout containers and bottles and it will stay where it belongs - on the door and off the lawn. It works on even difficult door handles and can broaden your distribution options to include surfaces not compatible with other types of door hangers.
Band-It was developed to support the door-to-door distribution of door hangers, flyers, postcards, business cards... onto today's more modern door knobs. By eliminating the die cut and utilizing a unique stretchy band (that not only stretches around unusually shaped handles but also retracts to hold tightly to the handle) you also gain valuable design space for an uninterrupted message. No more designing around a hole in your print piece! Band-It® Door Hangers securely fit 99% of doorknobs - traditional hole and slit die cut door hangers simply don't hold up on today's modern knobs.
By combining both StickTM and Band-It® you have a product with all the distribution benefits of Band-It PLUS all the retention and redemption benefits of Stick. Your valuable advertising is secure both IN & OUTSIDE the home.
With both Band-It & Stick for distribution, there is NO door your hanger can't reach. On its own, Band-It is a fast and secure distribution method working on 99% of knob styles, but with the addition of Stick, your door hanger doesn't even need a knob - it adheres easily to the storm door where it can be placed at eye level. Stick doesn't stop there, once the customer brings your door hanger inside their home, they can simply stick your ad to their fridge instead of placing it in "the drawer" with all the competitor ads fighting for attention.
Want to increase your ROI? Add StickTM for the ultimate solution keeping your ad in view - on the fridge where they will use it! This remarkable product sticks to glass, metal, and plastic and leaves no residue when removed. On the doorknob or the glass storm door at eye level, it outperforms traditional die cut door hangers and opens up valuable design space on the front of the door hanger. It is highly effective because the door hanger can be repositioned to an interior surface to keep your advertising in view.
IS ADDING BAND-IT RIGHT FOR ME?
IF I ADD BAND-IT SO THAT I CAN DISTRIBUTE DOOR TO DOOR - WILL MY PIECE INCLUDE THE TRADITIONAL HOLE & SLIT TO HANG MY DOOR HANGER?
No. This distribution style is unique as it does not include the traditional hole and slit to attach it to the door knob. It uses the innovative Band-It to attach it to the door knob. The Band-It is more secure and versatile than the traditional die cut hole & slit style.
ARE THE BAND-IT BANDS INCLUDED IN MY ORDER?
Yes, if you ADD Band-It to your order, that includes the addition of a small drill hole into your printed piece as well as a separate bag of our Band-It bands so you can easily insert them during distribution.
WILL THE BAND BREAK EASILY WHEN I STRETCH IT TO GO AROUND DOOR KNOBS?
No. The Band-It bands are designed specifically for door-to-door distribution so we made them large enough to stretch around various styles of levers but also small enough so they won't easily fall off the knob.
WILL IT TEAR MY DOOR HANGER WHEN I TRY AND INSERT THE BAND-IT BAND?
No. This unique design has a small end that is inserted through the drill hole and securely stays in the hole while the round rubber band part can be stretched and handled without ripping or tearing your advertisement!
DO I NEED TO USE HEAVY CARD STOCK PAPER SO THE BAND-IT WORKS PROPERLY?
No. A bonus of using the Band-It for door-to-door distribution is that it doesn't require the heavy paper weight to stay securely on the door knob as the more traditional die cut hole style does. Band-It can be used with lightweight paper stock or heavy card stock.
IS ADDING STICK RIGHT FOR ME?
IF I ADD STICK SO THAT I CAN DISTRIBUTE DOOR TO DOOR - WILL MY PIECE INCLUDE THE TRADITIONAL HOLE & SLIT TO HANG MY AD?
No. This distribution style is unique as it does not include the traditional hole and slit to attach it to the door knob. It uses the innovative Stick feature to attach it to the door knob. Stick is more secure and versatile than the traditional die cut hole & slit style.
DOES STICK ACTUALLY STICK?
Yes!! Stick has been specially formulated and tested extensively to ensure that it will stick to most surfaces (see below). One customer reported that they put a Stick Door Hanger on their car and drove on the highway and it still didn't come off.
DOES STICK REQUIRE ANY EXTRA DISCLAIMERS OR ARTWORK BE ADDED TO MY FINISHED PRINT PRODUCT?
STICK BANNER WITH DISCLAIMER: We used to require our Stick disclaimer be added to every Stick product, however, our newly updated liner includes the Stick disclaimer printed right onto it so now you only add the Stick Banner if you want it. The banner image is available in the online design tool under Images and if you are ordering design services simply let the designer know in the instructions that you want the Stick banner included on your printed piece.
STICK LINER: Each Stick product does, however, include a strip of our Stick and the liner states the following:
When distributing door Stick products you will want to fold the liner halfway back so that when the customer brings the door hanger inside the home, they can remove the rest of the liner and stick it to the fridge with a fresh piece of adhesive. Also, the liner is still attached to the product when the customer gets it in case they have any questions or concerns as to what surfaces they can stick the door hanger too.
WILL STICK LEAVE A FILMY RESIDUE?
No!! Millions of Stick products have been used around the country and not a single report of an irritating residue has been received.
IS STICK BETTER THAN A MAGNET?
Stick not only sticks where magnets won't (i.e. monitors, stainless steel refrigerators, plastic surfaces, glass, etc...) but Stick is a cost effective solution.
WHY DO I NEED STICK?
Why not?! Stick gives your customers a unique, convenient way to keep your message in their view by sticking it where it's most convenient for them to see it and use it (stainless steel refrigerator, etc). Stick keeps your piece in view instead of in "the drawer" with your competitors' ad. Our question to you is... Why would you want to use an alternative product that doesn't always work? Stick works!

More about BAND & STICK...
- IT'S INNOVATIVE AND UNIQUE
- Why is it a complete solution?
All the distribution benefits of Band-It PLUS all the retention and redemption benefits of STICK. Your valuable advertising is secure both OUTSIDE & INSIDE the home.
Why are BAND & STICK better than traditional die cut hole & slit styles?
- FALL OFF EASILY & END UP IN YOUR CUSTOMER'S YARD OR WORSE - AS LITTER - because they won't securely stay on the door
- WASTED DESIGN SPACE DUE TO THE HOLE & SLIT FEATURE
- DON'T FIT ALL DOORKNOBS OR APPLICATIONS
- DISTRIBUTORS DOUBLE HANG: pieces can be stuck together by the die cut
- LIMITED FUNCTIONALITY: can only be used as a hanger... once it's off the door its typically torn & crumbled - not something the customer wants to keep in view but rather to stash away in a drawer or the trash
