Blingyourband.com was started in 2009 by parents of a child diagnosed with plagiocephaly, a medical condition where a child’s head has a flat area or is asymmetrical. The condition is not painful for the infant, and a cranial orthotic (cranial remolding helmet or 'band') is fitted that allows a young child to grow into a rounder head shape. A child with plagiocephaly is as healthy and normal as any other child. The band is nothing more than a high tech baby helmet or hat.
The condition is rare enough that you probably didn’t know what baby helmets were or why children wore them before your child was diagnosed with plagiocephaly or craniosynostosis. The band looks medical and sterile and now that your child wears a baby helmet, you might feel self-conscious about it or that folks are feeling sorry for your child.
Most folks don’t know what the helmet is for but assume it is for a serious medical condition, and they don’t know how to respond to it.
By 2014 Coree had four small children and business became to busy to keep up with, so the Bartons stepped in. The Bartons have many years of experiance with custom children's products. They understand there have been complaints about slow service in the past. Quick and accurate order processing is job #1, and they have a business review page so you can see how service is today.
Our mission is to take what looks to most folks like a serious medical condition they don't know how to deal with, and make you and your child approachable and fun. While no one would choose a band for their son or daughter, you can have the coolest kid in the room. We have a free info kit if that would be helpful.
We help you do that with hundreds of cut to shape decal designs printed on very high quality vinyl. This is the same stuff you see used to wrap cars. The decals are non-toxic and safe to put in your child’s band, be they Hanger, Doc, Star, Clarren, or Boston brands. We have a picture gallery with many hundreds of photos for inspiration. In addition, we have detailed application guide pages, and information on how to paint your band!
Each of our sticker sheets is more than enough for any baby helmet. You can use the leftovers to replace damaged decals. Our decals also work on baseball helmets, craniosynostosis helmets, soft helmets, bike helmets, or smooth plastic casts.
