Walmart Welcomes Artemax to Open Call Event

In 2017, our company Artemax was able to take advantage of an incredible opportunity to share our passion for manufacturing quality U.S. products at Walmart’s Open Call event.

With two of our innovative products in hand, we met one-on-one with Walmart buyers and to our excitement, we were offered a deal on the spot with Walmart. Below, we share why this is a significant event for Artemax and where you can find our newly released products on Walmart shelves. 

Investing In American Jobs

Part of Walmart’s “Investing in American Jobs” initiative is their commitment to purchase an additional $250 billion in products made, sourced, or grown in the U.S. by 2023. It was an incredible experience to have our JetBands™ product showcased on Walmart’s Open Call display shelf. 

Our 100-count Tyvek® wristbands and JetBands™ were among more than 750 made-in-the-USA products from over 500 other entrepreneurs. However, only 100 products were given the green light by Walmart, including Artemax's products.

100-Count Tyvek® Wristbands 

Tyvek® wristbands are one of our best-selling products here at Artemax, and for good reason. These easy-to-use wristbands can’t be unattached without destroying the band, which means they are secure and cost-effective. We also designed them with an innovative adhesive seal so that your arm hair doesn’t get caught in the adhesive – something other wristband manufacturers haven’t considered.

We purposely manufacture these bands with durable, DuPont Tyvek® material so that they hold up at festivals, field-trips, tournaments, or sporting events for one to two days. Available at your local Walmart store are our most popular colors of: Neon Green, Neon Red, and Neon Blue.

JetBands Do-It-Yourself Printable Wristbands 

JetBands™ allow customers to have complete creative freedom when it comes to making custom wristbands at home. All you need to plan the perfect birthday party or organize an event is a package of JetBands™ and your inkjet printer. We provide nearly 100 different colors, textures, patterns, and themed designs right inside the online designer tool.

Aside from endless creative possibilities, these custom wristbands are water-resistant, can be written on, and are tamper-resistant. On our JetBands™ blog, we share numerous DIY ideas that are not only outside-the-box, but also simple to complete.

Walmart is convenient for our customers 

One of the most appealing aspects of our new relationship with Walmart is the convenience of their numerous store locations. Although our website is setup to make online ordering very easy, we’re thrilled to be able to get our popular products into the hands of our customers in an even easier way. 

Currently, you can find our 100-count Tyvek® wristbands and JetBands™ in over 2,800 Walmart stores across the country. Now stocking up on either product is as simple as stopping by the office supplies aisle.

Walmart’s “Investing in American Jobs” initiative provides the ultimate platform for local businesses – like Artemax – to be successful.
