Lanyards Resource

The fundamental purpose of a lanyard is an easy one to understand… in the simplest of terms, they hold our valuables (keys, identification, USB drives, stopwatches, tools, etc.). They enable us to move about freely without restriction as their primary function is to suspend and support the objects we need access to when our hands or pockets will not suffice. Made from 100% polyester, our lanyards are durable, waterproof, and one size fits all. Just like our wristbands, our lanyards are fully customizable. We offer sublimated and woven styles; various hook types including lobster claw, bulldog, and keychain, to name a few; and add-on attachments including safety breakaways, buckles, and badge holders. While wristbands are our bread-and-butter, we’re just as knowledgeable and passionate about lanyards and the benefits they provide. Trust us when we say- we know how to make a darn good looking lanyard that will last for years to come! Read on to learn more about this item and see what sets it apart from other identification solutions.

How much do custom lanyards cost? Aside from the quantity needed, a variety of factors influence custom lanyard costs including the style (sublimated or woven), hook type (lobster claw, key ring, oval, bulldog, etc.), and additional attachments required (safety breakaway, badge holder, buckle, etc.). However, a single lanyard can cost as little as 27 cents apiece!

How do you make lanyards? Sublimated lanyards are made by running the fabric through a machine which dyes the material in the desired print. Woven lanyards are made by weaving different colored threads together to create a custom pattern or design.

How do you use a lanyard key? Lanyards are commonly equipped with metal rings, small loops, or spring hooks on the end that items can hang from. These attachments can be thread or clamped onto a key, for example, so it is securely suspended from the lanyard and readily available to use.

What is a breakaway lanyard? A breakaway lanyard is one that contains a flat, plastic closure that releases the lanyard when tugged or ripped. This helps to ensure the safety of the lanyard wearer.

What is a badge holder? A badge holder is a pouch or pocket used to contain and display various forms of identification (for example: driver's license, security badge, name tag, work I.D., etc.). It often features a transparent material/surface so the credentials within can be seen clearly, and may be hung from a reel or lanyard for easy access.
