Reminderband was launched in November 2004 by Clay Broadbent and Scott Huskinson.[5]

In 2005, the company sold about 9 million of the wristbands[6] and was the official provider of the wristband of the Tour de France with its bands worn by thousands at the Tour including cyclists, fans, police security and reporters.[7][8]

Today, Reminderband Inc. participates in donation activities, including goods donation to Wayne State University,[9] Kartchner Homes,[10] and 'Extreme Makeover Home Edition' Volunteers.[11] The company also provided the “Push it for Ben” and “Support Ben” wristbands used by the Logan area Sky View High School football team.[12]
