What is a Lanyard and why do we wear them? The simplest answer is that in business we need cost effective items to keep us safe, that can be worn by all and meets necessary safety criteria for every school/workplace environment.
Lanyards are typically worn around the neck and have a clip to attach a security pass or some form of identification to indicate the wearer belongs to the organisation or has a specific role to play within the workplace.
Lanyards are available in several styles of fabric, therefore choosing the right fabric largely depends on the print required. Let me give you a few examples:
Flat Polyester Lanyards |These are typically used for companies who are happy to have just a name in text and they can have simple logos in 1 – 3 spot colours where the colours are not touching.
Full Colour Lanyards|This style of lanyard is a silky fabric which starts off white it has a special coating to accept inks. The design is printed onto paper and is then heat pressed (transferred) on to the material. This is a great method where complicated logos with tones and tints are required and we can even print photographic images right to the edges of the lanyard.
Tubular |These lanyards are made of a softer feel fabric and as the name suggests it is a small tube made from a knitted fabric, like the flat polyester it is suitable for uncomplicated designs up to 3 spot colours.
Nylon |If longevity is your thing then nylon is a great comfortable lanyard with a lovely sheen to the fabric and suitable for spot colour printing. In each of the above lanyards, pantone matching is an option when stock shades are not near enough.
Woven |Lanyards that are woven offer the highest of standards, they are robust and have a truly bespoke feel to them, therefore we would advise choosing woven when looking for something extra special – but please keep the design simple as jacquard weaving does have some limitations.
