Alliance Rubber Co. in Hot Springs has been making rubber bands since 1923, but only recently decided to go big. Alliance’s Supersize Bands, available in 12-inch, 14-inch and 17-and-one-quarter-inch sizes, are designed to help customers keep large organizational projects neat.
“Ballparks, racetracks and manufacturers, along with everyday users, rely on this product for a variety of uses,” said Bonnie Swayze, the president of Alliance Rubber. The bands can hold down lids on boxes and bins and even secure large trashcan liners on 44- and 55-gallon cans.
They can be purchased at Office Depot or at Rubberband.com.
