Name Tag Lanyard - Frequently Asked Questions


How do I work with a sponsor to sell space on a lanyard?

Selling space on a lanyard as a revenue stream for your association or meeting is a great idea. But be aware savvy sponsors are looking for more than just the standard “name exposure” sales pitch. Most of our planners have better success selling a sponsorship package that includes the lanyard and other items that offer exposure, like event hall signage.

Cotton, nylon, polyester? What's the difference?

Each has its place. For the highest-quality printing, we recommend polyester as you can use sublimated printing for full coverage and intricate detail. For vivid colour nylon lanyards can’t be beat. And for soft comfort and less environmental impact cotton sets the standard. Consider the needs of your attendees and sponsor when choosing a fabric.

About printing: what do the terms "screen printing" and "sublimation" mean?

Screen Printing: A surface method in which ink is transferred to the top of the fabric for good looks and good durability at a reasonable price. If you have a T-shirt with graphics, you've seen what screen printing looks like. It's best suited for text and bold graphics, and is limited to 1-3 colours.

Sublimation: The most refined and detailed printing, sublimation heat-transfers the dye stuff (think “ink”) to the lanyard's polyester fibers. The dye bonds onto and surrounds the individual yarns for premium colour that never cracks or fades. The result is a lanyard that really catches your attendees’ attention.

Can I order a blank lanyard?

Yes. Some of our most popular lanyards are available in a blank option. Browse all our Blank Lanyards and find one that suits your needs. Blank lanyards are well suited to formal occasions and are available in more colours.

How do I decide between so many attachment options?

First step: Narrow down the selection to the ones that will work with the holder you have chosen. Need assistance? Use our Holder Attachment Guide.

Finally: Lanyards get more reuse after the event (and more exposure for your sponsor) when you order them with a functional key-ring or clip option.

What's the difference between an O-Ring and Key Ring attachment?

O-rings are bulldog-clip compatible. Key rings give you the bulldog clip compatibility and make it easier to slip on keys later. If you want long-term reuse (and the long-term sponsorship exposure that goes with it), spend a few pennies more and upgrade to the key ring.

What is a "breakaway" feature?

Two plastic pieces fitted together on a lanyard that offer quick release.

Can I order a lanyard based on my logo?

Sure thing. Just e-mail the logo to [email protected] and we'll be happy to make a recommendation to you based on the logo, your budget and your needs.
