3 Factors That You Must Consider When Selecting Custom Lanyards

Custom lanyards have come a long way from being used as dress ornaments in 1933 to being used for various applications today.

1.Imprinting Methods

The first imprinting method is the four-color process. It can replicate an imprint design by using four inks – yellow, black, cyan, and magenta.

Custom-lanyardsHot stamping is the second imprinting method. It’s the cheapest imprinting method because it creates an imprint design using one color. The imprint can become damaged if the lanyard is rubbed. The third imprinting method is the sewn-in. You can sew an imprint on one side of the lanyard that’s different to another imprint on the opposite side. You can only use limited colors for the imprint. Dye-sublimation is the fourth imprinting method. It uses multiple colors to create an imprint that’s baked into the lanyard.

The fifth imprinting method is the silk screening. It uses various colors to create an imprint on both sides of the lanyard.

2.Types of Custom Lanyards

A reflective lanyard has a reflective strip that’s positioned on the middle of the lanyard. The reflective strip glows in the dark for up to several hours in dark areas. An eco-friendly lanyard has bamboo or cotton so that the wearer won’t acquire health problems. It has to be manufactured properly because its material may further soften during the heating process.

Custom lanyards that have a plastic zipper can be attached to a rubber patch or a silicon patch. A lanyard that functions like a luggage belt can prevent losing or damaging the packed items. It hides the packed items from view in case the lock mechanism of the luggage is broken.

A nylon lanyard makes the imprint stand out from the background by making it sparkle. Custom lanyards that are manufactured from silicon can be exposed to stretching and water. They’re also lightweight. A lanyard that looks like a shoelace is comfortable to wear around the neck because it’s soft.

3.Attachment Options

The first attachment option is the cell phone holder. The cell phone holder has a slot and a nylon loop that make up the size-squeeze buckle. The slot attaches to the nylon loop so that the cell phone can be attached to the lanyard.

The water bottle holder is the second attachment option. It attaches to the neck of the water bottle to carry it. The rubber-o ring of the holder attaches the water bottle to the lanyard. The third attachment option is the breakaway connector. Pressure is applied to the breakaway connector so that the lanyard can come off from the neck of the person.

The slide adjuster is the fourth attachment option. It brings the attached object towards the chest of the person or brings the attached object away from the chest of the person. Pulling the back of the lanyard allows the lanyard to bring the attached object towards the chest. Pulling the front of the lanyard lets the lanyard bring the attached object away from the chest.

The fifth attachment option is the quick-release buckle. Its lower part is attached to an object and its upper part attaches the object to the lanyard. It can detach an object without taking off the lanyard from around the person’s neck.

The split ring is the sixth attachment option. The split ring attaches the key or the ID badge to the lanyard. An ID badge holder that has a bulldog clip can also be attached to the split ring. The seventh attachment option is the J-hook. The J-hook attaches the object to the lanyard when pressure is applied to one side. It may also rotate the attached object.

Take note of these three factors when you are looking for the right custom lanyards.
