Don’t guess if you are not sure about what to choose. Ordering custom lanyard in bulk can be a daunting task as one wrong choice can affect an entire business organization. To help you decide, there are five important things that you need know.
1. Custom lanyards are perfect for marketing campaigns.
In events, you cannot force attendees to look at your posters and read your leaflets. However, you can offer them something they can use and keep as a souvenir. Lanyard is the perfect solution. In fact, you can force them to wear it if the event requires them to wear their IDs.
Lanyard is perfect for brand promotion because it is not easily ignored when worn. It can also show all the important information that people need to know about a company: the business name and the logo.
Give it away as a souvenir at an event or a gift to your customers. You can also force your employees to wear it all the time. Industrial psychologists believe that employees who are exposed to their company’s brand, logo, and tagline are more inclined to develop loyalty.
2. Real custom lanyards should always meet a customer’s requirements.
Good custom lanyard manufacturers do not stock finished products. All customers must be able to demand their specifications, like material, length, width, color, accessories, attachments, thickness, and of course, design. Accessories are usually customizable as well, so you can also put prints on badge reels, ID holders, and pins. Buckles and clips are usually as is.
There are also manufacturers that let their customers choose the type of printing process to be used, but this is non-negotiable under normal circumstances. If ever the manufacturer offers choices, they are likely to be dye sublimation, silk screen printing, and digital printing (more expensive).
3. Eco-friendly materials are not always recommended for custom lanyards.
Bamboo and recycled plastic are eco-friendly materials that manufacturers now use for their products.
It’s actually cool to wear a custom lanyard made of bamboo, but despite the advocacy behind it, its use is not really that practical. It easily breaks over time.
Recycled plastic is durable and will surely outlast fabrics. However, it is not comfortable to wear and the print might not last as long as the material does.
When it comes to comfort, cotton really wins it all. Employees will love to wear it and it is also easy to print on. However, like bamboo, this material does not last against wearing.
If you want to stick with standard materials, you have a choice of polyester fabric, woven fabric, fabric cord, tubular fabric, and nylon cords.
4. Adding breakaway to your order of custom lanyards is most recommended.
This is not to say that you have to spend a little more for convenience, but adding a breakaway is definitely useful so that the lanyard can fit employees of all sizes.
A breakaway is anything that allows adjustments on the lanyard. It normally comes in the form of multi-level buckle that you can snap according to the length that you prefer. Round plastic breakaway is also easy to use as it only needs to be slid to adjust the length desired. Another option is a flat plastic breakaway that you can also slide to make adjustments.
There are manufacturers that use velcro breakaways, but it’s not the standard choice.
5. Double-ended custom lanyards can be requested.
Most lanyards are single-ended. Many people might even say that a double-ended lanyard looks weird. However, companies can order it if they want to see their employees’ IDs and access cards all the time as it prevents attachments from spinning.
This is also a good choice for events where the organizers and moderators need to see their attendees’ numbers or tags all the time. This is recommended for events where there is high security risk.
