Screen print refers to ink being passed through a silk screen template and applied to the material.

Woven lanyards are uncommon in the custom lanyard world, although technically they have the same lead time and similar price points as other lanyards the end result is an acquired taste.

Woven refers to dyed polyester threads being woven together in to a pattern similar to that of embroidering, with the exception the woven lanyard is flat. Due to the nature of this lanyard type, the reverse side of the cloth is inverted, however double sided is achievable but effectively two woven lanyards sewn back to back increasing the overall thickness and price.

Attachment Options

Lanyard Attachments

There are so many different attachments available in the world it’s simply impossible to list them all. Over the years we have found some of the most common attachments are displayed below.

Although we only have displayed the above attachments, there are virtually hundreds of attachments that can complement the lanyard.

The best way to decide the attachment that is right for you is to determine who will be wearing the lanyard and what the objective of the lanyard is. If the wearer is your employee and the objective is to hold their building access card, then a strap clip would be ideal to connect to a card holder or directly to the access card.

Check out our Attachment Guide for more ideas on what would best suit you.

Safety Options

Safety Options

Safety is a huge concern in Australia and sometimes WHS rules dictate what people can and can’t wear. There are a range of safety options available for customer lanyards.

Safety breakaways are the most common preventative measure against wearers being harmed by lanyards being caught on or in objects that can be dangerous. The safety breakaway will come apart when pulling force is applied. Often customers add two safety breakaways to increase wearer safety.

Reflective cloth is a perfect solution for low visibility areas such as docks, warehouses and anywhere visibility can be poor. The reflective layer on the lanyard will reflect any light making it more visible (similar to safety vests with reflective strips).

Attachment Guide

Attachment Guide

Attachments are as important as the print type and material used as this will determine how the wearer will utilise the lanyard.

Our team has put together some scenarios and what we feel is the best attachment/s.

Employee use for ID cards:

  • Safety breakaway – this is for WHS purposes.
  • Split ring/keyring – this allows the lanyard to easily attach directly to an ID card or card holder and reduce the impact on the ID card or card holder itself
  • Strap clip - This allows employees to add personal items such as keys, styled keyrings, mobile phones and any other items that can be connected to a keyring.

Employees use for access control cards:

  • Safety breakaway – this is for WHS purposes.
  • Retractable reel with strap – this allows the employee retract the access card out to a reader and automatically retract the access card.

Promotional lanyard for prospective customers: This is most likely the hardest decision as it all depends on your research of your target audience.

  • What common interests do they have?
  • What pain points could they have that a lanyard could fix?
  • What could they use it for?

All of these questions and more will help to ensure your promotional lanyard stays around their neck or at the least is used daily. For instance one of our team uses a lanyard to help find her keys in her handbag, so a keyring is definitely an attachment she needs from a lanyard.
