What type of lanyard is right for my business?

Lanyards are commonly seen in places which require identification for security purposes, such as offices and school settings. They can also be found at trade shows, conferences and festivals, displaying names, logos and slogans from organisers of the event. With the increase in popularity and use, there are many different types of lanyards available. Leaving you with the question, what type of lanyard is right for you and your business? Consider the following:


With breakaway and non-breakaway options, you want to give serious thought to how your lanyard detaches from a person’s neck. Breakaway lanyards are by far the safest option, prevent choking or injury to a person if the lanyard is grabbed by someone or caught by something.


With lots of options to choose from, you will need to give careful consideration to the style of your lanyard. The most common styles are round braid such as tubular lanyards or flat braid. You may want to consider eco-friendly lanyard options too, such as bamboo lanyards, cotton lanyards or rpet lanyards. You many also want to consider the length and width of your lanyard to get the greatest impact; the standard length is 36inches and widths can range anywhere from 3/8” to 1”.


Consider your budget. If your budget is limited, you may want to consider tubular lanyards as these are the most cost-effective and highly durable, stain resistant and quick drying. They are ideal for ID cards, keys and flash drives. They are ideal for simple logos and slogans.


Customising your lanyards doesn’t have to cost the earth. There are lots of opportunities to add logos and slogans; or even a school or team name, to make them more personal to you. Customised lanyards are the ideal choice for events too, and as giveaways, promotional lanyards are an ideal way to market yourself further. For extra impact and to get noticed, dye sublimated lanyards are the perfect choice; allowing for full colour printing and complete coverage with little restriction on what you can print.


With a number of attachment options to choose from, such as bulldog clips, swivel hooks and mobile phone hooks, the most popular attachment is still the lanyard hook.  So be sure to take a look at all options to decide what you intend your lanyard to be used for and what would work best for you and your business.
