Choosing the Right Lanyard for Your Conference

If you have an upcoming corporate event, one of the decisions that must be made is selecting and acquiring the appropriate lanyards. While this may seem like a straightforward choice, lanyards offer you a wide variety of options that need to be weighed against your company’s needs. What are some of the considerations that come into play when choosing a lanyard?


Custom Printed Lanyards

Custom lanyards help to foment company pride and ensure that no unwanted visitors are at your event. Get your company name and logo screen printed directly on the lanyard using state-of-the-art printing techniques. As an alternative, dye sublimation lanyards feature precise imaging. These long-lasting lanyards can be printed from edge to edge. There is no limit to the colors you can print in.

Choosing the Right Lanyard Materials

Polyester lanyards are popular due to being a durable canvas for various forms of customization. For example, a double-layer lanyard features custom printing on a satin ribbon that is then overlaid onto the polyester lanyard. Woven lanyards are also made from polyester. However, they have a textured feel, especially after you have text or a logo stitched into the material. Nylon lanyards, on the other hand, provide the perfect canvas for silk screening.

Lanyard Releases

A standard lanyard is put on or removed by placing it over the head. Lanyard releases allow for different options that can add safety and convenience. For example, a safety release is located at the back of the neck and automatically releases should any kind of pressure be placed on the lanyard. This is especially important if kids will be wearing the lanyards, but it can be used in any situation where there are safety concerns regarding something being around the neck of everyone at the conference. Buckle release lanyards are also available that make it easy to snap the lanyard into place or release it by reaching around behind the neck rather than having to put the entire lanyard over the head.

Additional Options for Security and Convenience

Lanyards can be used to display an ID card, a credential badge, or even to hold a keycard for gaining access to certain parts of the conference. Once you know the way you intend to use lanyards at your event and what you want the customized print to look like, you are ready to choose the right lanyards for your conference.
