Promotional Lanyard Purchase Considerations
Promotional lanyards can be used in any situation where identification is required, such as corporations, hospitals and educational institutions. A lanyard with a clip and keyring can hold an ID badge, car keys, and room key. They make it easy to keep all necessities close because they can be worn around a person’s neck or attached to a bag.
When shopping for promotional lanyards consider the material in your purchase decision. Low cost fabrics can range from a soft cotton material to ribbons with a one color screened imprint. These value lanyards are great for one-time use events when price is a main concern. For long-term use custom lanyards, more durable fabrics such as thicker satins, nylon webs, and woven styles are recommended. Many of these lanyards offer a sublimated full color imprint, which is perfect for full color graphics and gradients.
The attachment can be just as important as the lanyard itself. J-hooks and keyrings are versatile options that can easily hold anything with a hole such as keys and badge holders. Bulldog clips are specifically made to clip to badge holders made with a rectangular opening. If you’re sponsoring an event, consider supplying the badge holders, too. They’ll give you additional brand exposure at the event.
If you’re looking for lanyards with added safety precautions for school and hospital staff, ask about breakaway features. Lanyards with a safety breakaway feature will unclip if the lanyard is pulled too hard so the wearer avoids injury.
