Choosing the Right Lanyard

With over 10 years experience, we hope we can use our knowledge and experience to help you choose the right options for your company or organisation.

Below is our easy to follow guide to the different types of custom printed lanyards which we offer, as well the range of off the shelf lanyards which we stock for same day dispatch.

What are Lanyards?

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.

We only manufacture using the highest quality materials and have a strict quality assurance process. As such we are happy to offer prospective customers, free samples of our lanyards or accessories.

Do you require customised lanyards or plain & pre-printed lanyards?





Custom Printed or Personalised Lanyards Options




We offer four different manufacturing processes for your customised lanyards. The best method will depend on your choice of logo, design or message and your particular requirements.

We will advise on the best method once we see any artwork or understand your specific needs but the overview below illustrates the main differences between each production method.

Remember our design service is included in the price of our lanyards, so you don't have to worry about any hidden costs.



Screen Printed Lanyards

Screen Printed lanyards

These are our best selling type of lanyards and we product millions of these every year for customers large and small.

Screen printed lanyards can be printed in up to four colours and suit logos or designs that don't have complex colour gradients or very fine details that need to be reproduced.

We can PANTONE® Colour Match to your chosen colours and like all our lanyards these come with quality metal clips and a safety break included in the price


Full Colour Heat Transfer Lanyards

Full Colour Heat Transfer lanyards

The heat transfer process is perfect for designs with more that 4 colours, with colour gradients, shading or shadows or where fine details need to be accurately reproduced.

Full colour lanyards offer exact replication of the most intricate designs and the result is a very high quality, durable lanyard with a premium look and feel.

We can PANTONE® Colour Match these lanyards to your corporate colours and can even reproduce full colour photographs using this production method.


Woven Lanyards

Woven lanyards

Woven lanyards work best with block text or with a simple logo or design which can be woven in up to two weave colours.

This type of lanyard is best for industrial environments such as factories where the lanyard needs to be exceptionally hard wearing.



Satin Woven Lanyards

Satin Woven lanyards

Like our standard woven lanyard, satin woven lanyards are also very, very hardwearing and are best suited to environments where the lanyard will have to stand up to robust use.

The satin weave uses a much finer weave size which allows for much more intricate designs to be reproduced in comparison to the standard woven product

Designs in up to five weave colours can be produced using this manufacturing process.



ID Cardholders & Accessories

Rigid Plastic ID Card Holders

As well as 1000s of lanyards, we also carry a wide range of ID cardholders and accessories such as ski-reels to perfectly complement your lanyards.
