Stock, Printed

Printed with a common message, like Visitor, Staff, First Aid? We have thousands of pre-printed stock, with lots of designs and colours available, all made to our usual high quality finish, with a safety break and metal clip. See if we have your design in our stock lanyard page, or contact us.


You need a customised lanyard, with a text or logos. You have a tight budget, but require high quality. You have a tight deadline? Try our printed lanyards. We supply nearly a million of these every year, they are very popular. We can print almost any logo, use any font and match any colour, for the material and print. Our fastest turnaround for customisation is around 7 days, but please contact us ASAP if you have an urgent deadline.

Full Colour

You have a complicated full colour logo, with shaded colours or very fine detail? You are looking for something a bit different, or have a demanding client looking for the best quality? Have a look at our heat transfer lanyards.


Looking for something a bit more hard wearing? Stand out from the crowd? Anticipating some rough use or looking for a luxury satin design? Our woven lanyards may fit the bill.

Different Clips

To see our range of clips and accessories, go to our attachments page. Remember, we fit most of our clips as standard, with no extra cost. We can add useful extras such as bottle openers, whistles and mobile holders. If you don't see what you are looking for here, just ask! We can source literally 100s of different clips, so we are sure to be able to match your requirements.


We also supply a wide range of card holders to fit almost every need. We can even have these custom produced to your own design. Find out about our cardholders.

Back To School Lanyard Discount

Until the end of September 2014, any school, college or university ordering lanyards will receive a 10% discount off their order! Simply quote B2S14 when you contact us with your order/enquiry - see our Offers page for more details!

Why Buy?

Lanyards are very widely used, for a number of purposes. At the very basic level, they are used for displaying ID or a badge. But with clever branding, they can be used to identify key staff, or raise the profile of your organisation. A brightly coloured printed lanyard with your logo will identify your staff to anyone looking to engage with your company, or direct a question to. Branding also helps to improve security, making to easy to identify someone who doesn't belong in an area.

How Do I Order?

We like to keep things simple, so we won't confuse you with complicated pricing or technical jargon like some other retailers. If you are new to lanyards, no problem - simply send us an email with what you are looking for, or any questions you have, and we'll get back to you within an hour (during the working day) with a price or answers to your queries. If you have a logo, you can attach it to the email, and we can produce a mockup of how the lanyard will look, free of charge.

When you are happy with your quote, we begin working on your artwork, making changes as directed by you, until you are happy. We then get a finished lanyard produced, and email you a picture for approval. If you are happy, we commence full production, and deliver your lanyards to you normally a week later. Please visit our How To Order page for more information.

How Do I Pay?

We accept all forms of payment - cheque, BACS, credit card etc. We accept all major credit cards including American Express. On confirmation of your order, we will send you an invoice, with all payment details and a link to our secure online payment area, hosted by Kashflow and processed by SagePay. We can even take cash if you are picking up from the office, but please try and have the correct amount, as we may not have change. Details for payment by cheque and bank BACS transfer are also listed on your invoice. For Local Authority (e.g. schools), Armed Services, NHS and Government customers, we are pleased to offer 30 days credit on receipt of an official Purchase Order. Please note, for most customers, we require payment before delivery. If you wish to apply for credit, we require you to agree to a credit check. For more details about our easy and transparent pricing, please check our pricing page

How Long is Delivery Time?

If you are buying any of our stock items, we can ship most of these the same day, for a next day courier delivery (if you order and pay before 2.30pm, and we have the items in stock!). Our main courier is Fedex UK. For custom orders, these can take a little longer depending on the type of lanyard required, but your advisor can help you decide. For our most popular printed lanyards, we can turn these around in 7-10 days, but let us know if you have an urgent deadline, and we'll pull out all the stops to make it for you. One thing we will never do is make promises we cannot keep, just to get a sale - if we cannot make your order in time, we will tell you! For more information on Delivery, please visit our Order Info page.

Can I Get A Free Sample?

Of course you can! We think our products are the best available, so we are happy to send out samples so you can see the quality of the fabric and the print for yourself. Not all lanyards are created equal! Find out more on our free sample page or simply email us your name and address, and let us know if you are looking for a particular type or colour, and we'll pop a sample in the First Class post to you. Please go to our Contact Page, and fill in the form - don't forget your address! If you haven't received your free samples after 2 business days, please let us know, and we'll send out some more.

What Artwork Do You Need

While we do prefer artwork to be emailed in high res EPS or PDF files, with pantone references...we do know that most of our customers are not graphic designers, so just send what you have. If it needs to be altered, we'll let you know! Please note our artwork and design service is completely free. Our designers will work with you till you are happy with your design, with no charges for alterations or revisions. If you require a specific colour to be matched, look up the matching pantone number. If you have anything produce by a printer eg business cards, compliment slips, they should be able to tell you what Pantone number is used for your logo. Please check our our How To Order page.

What People are Saying About Us

We love to get feedback from our customers, as we know that happy customers are returning customers! Here's a few comments from some of our recent happy customers:

We have been using services for over 2 years and have always found them to be very professional and extremely reliable. There are times in the promotional industry when deadlines are almost impossible but Rachel has ensured that every delivery date has been met and she will always go the “extra mile” to help out. Due to this we would thoroughly recommend the all round service received from Rachel.
Working in a fast-paced environment, I found the service from ribbon works to be very efficient and reliable. I was fully informed about the product I am buying and felt assured even through an electronic order. The items are very good quality and delivered within days of the order.
We were able to quickly find because of their web site address and easy to navigate site. An e-mail was sent as an enquiry and due to their rapid response and helpful support, we chose Lanyards to work with as we prepared for are Global Conference.
We found the friendly and professional approach to our requirements helpful and the service efficient. Based on this we have an excellent impression and would be happy to recommend them to others. Thanks especially to Rachel who was always just a phone call away.
Lanyards turned up today well ahead of schedule, many thanks much appreciated I wish everyone was a reliable as you.
