A lanyard is a chain / cord or neck strap that is worn around the neck to hold an identification badge, keys or other small objects. Lanyards are in use by businesses corporate, schools, hospitals, at special events, conventions, reunions, and in many recreational activities. 

If you've ever been to a conference, convention, sports event or large corporation, chances are you've seen individuals wearing neck lanyards. Neck ID lanyards may be one of the most useful items your organization can distribute whether you're an individual, corporation, hospital, event manager, school, recreational facility or security company. 

The basic function of a neck lanyard is to hold something important to ensure it does not get lost. The basic form of a neck lanyard is a strap that hangs around the neck, with a piece of hardware to attach a chosen item. Many times Neck Lanyards are used to hold identification badges, press passes, event credentials, keys, MP3 players, USB ports, security passes, whistles, cameras, eye glasses, sports wear or cell phones. However, with a little creativity and the right hardware, a neck lanyard can be used to carry just about anything you could imagine.

Although the purpose of the neck lanyard is one of function, printed neck lanyards are available in a wide variety of materials, colors and prints that make each neck lanyard unique, and in some cases even a fashion statement. In fact, neck lanyards can be made of cotton, nylon, cord, polyester, rubber, beads, crystal, gemstones, rhinestones, stones, wood, pearls and much, much more. With the extensive number of materials available for neck lanyards, it is possible to personalize your lanyard to fit yourself into your organization perfectly.

Lanyards can also be used as an advertising tool with a customized logo or name printed on the strap. They come in various colors and types with different hardware attached at the bottom for holding an ID badge etc.

Lanyards can be made of cord, cotton, nylon or polyester twill. The cord type is the least expensive but cannot be printed because it lacks the flat surface of the strap-type. Some have a small holder containing a retractable reel to use with an ID badge or keys. They might also have breakaway connectors so that if the lanyard gets caught it will release before it pulls on the neck. Some lanyards could be made of metal and beaded or could be a chain of beads.

The strap-type custom lanyard can be made of cotton, polyester or nylon and are often printed with a company name, product or logo. There are generally three different printing methods used: hot stamping, screen printing, or dye sublimation.

To hot stamp a metal plate is designed according to artwork provided by the customer. The plate is heated then a color film is placed over the lanyard. The plate is applied with pressure, which heats the film, transferring the color and design to the material. Hot stamping uses a single color and is the most economical. Hot stamping is suitable for many applications such as trade shows, reunions, student badges and so on.

Screen-printing provides a higher quality result that is more durable. A fine mesh screen is made from the customer's artwork. The screen is laid on top of the material and the colored ink is applied over the screen. A squeegee pushes the ink through the mesh screen to create the design beneath on the fabric. Heat cures the ink for a high-resolution result.

Dye sublimation is a superior printing process that can create multicolored, highly detailed designs. With this method the customer's design is transferred to a fine paper that uses dye sublimation inks. The paper is placed on the lanyard and pressure and heat are applied, causing the image to become enmeshed into the material. The design remains smooth because of the method used, allowing for an image that is less prone to abrasion or fading.

A personalized lanyard can also come with different hardware. The O-ring is common for using with a whistle or keys. It may also have a split-connector so that it is easily removed and snapped back into place. A swivel snap hook is good for ID badges that have a rectangular hole at the top, and the bulldog clip is the type that when squeezed, both serrated jaws open, similar to how an alligator clip works.
