Our basic Memorial HeroBracelets and tags are made from anodized aluminum. Anodization is a process similar to chrome plating, leaving a thin, very strong protective film and a lustrous sheen. The laser engraving removes the anodized surface, revealing the aluminum. The result: a colored bracelet or tag with light silver-colored lettering.
Most OTHER memorial/KIA bracelets cut from big sheets of thin anodized aluminum. This process produces an inferior bracelet because the aluminum is soft, easily bent or broken, and the edges are unfinished and raw.
Only genuine HeroBracelets are created using a secret process we developed ourselves! Every bracelet is individually formed with rounded edges, then tumble polished and anodized. This creates a much stronger bracelet that's always comfortable to wear. The custom message is laser etched through the anodized color. Other bracelets are machine etched often leaving burrs on the surface. It’s been our goal from the beginning to provide the best quality bracelet available, at the lowest possible price and still make the $2.00 donation with every bracelet. No other bracelet available can make that promise!
The aluminum bracelets are 6.75” wide and .625” high. We offer black, bronze, purple, blue, red and pink. They’re pre-shaped and easily adjusted for a better fit. If you’re buying for a very small child, we suggest getting a HeroTag or a small silver or leather bracelet instead.
Memorial (black aluminum) and deployed (bronze aluminum) HeroTags are 2″ x 1.125″ and come with a 24″ ball chain. Silver tags are 1.75″ by 1″ with an 18″ sterling chain.
STERLING SILVER AND COPPER HeroBracelet™
Sterling silver and copper HeroBracelets are handmade by a master silversmith. Each bracelet is individually crafted and each letter is hand stamped into the metal. These are NOT made by machine and thus, as a work of art the letters will not be exactly perfectly lined. Each is an individual work of art and is numbered and dated. Small bracelets are 5.5″ wide by .375″ high and over 14 grams; large bracelets, 6.5″ wide by .625″ high, over 33 grams.
We offer two styles of Legion HeroBracelet. Both are entirely hand made when you order. They are made of heavy copper and carry a 100 year guarantee for breakage. Each is a unique work of art that will last for many generations.
HeroBracelets makes a $2.00 donation to the non-profit service organization of your choice with each item purchased.
