What is a lanyard?

A lanyard is a strap worn around the neck that is often made from polyester material. Lanyards or 'neck straps' come with a clip that can be attached to different items like badge holders, badges, or badge reels. Many lanyards feature a breakaway connector that ensures the lanyard can come away freely from the neck if it becomes caught on something.

The dog clip is the most popular as it can clip to just about anything and is simple to use.
Tension Clip
 
Great for clipping to a hole-punched badge for an event pass.
Split Ring
 
Split ring attachments are an idea for alternative use like keys, keychains, and lanyard wallets.
Crocodile Clip
 
The croc clip is another popular clip that is commonly used for clipping lanyards to badge holders.
Lobster Clip
 
Similar to the dog clip, but a stronger, more premium finish.
Double Dog Clip
 
Double clips are essential when using a wider event badge, helping to hold the badge flat to the user's body.

Frequently Asked Questions

 
What's the most common use for a lanyard?
Lanyards are one of the most popular options for carrying and displaying ID cards and event badges. As such, lanyards are often customized with logos and used at events to distinguish between types of access or to display sponsor branding.  Due to their soft material, lanyards are comfortable to wear and they easily stand out around your neck, helping others at conferences or in officers identify the lanyard wearer.
 
What's the difference between a lanyard and an ID badge?
There is a common misconception that a lanyard is a name for the badge or the collective name for the whole item (lanyard + badge). But, It’s not. The lanyard is just a bit of material around the neck. There are also a number of commonly misspelled variations for lanyards such as ‘lanyard, ‘land yard’ and even, ‘lanyards... can you believe it?
 
Can I buy customized or plain lanyards? 
ID&C offers two main types of lanyards: custom printed or blank. Whether you’re looking to buy bulk lanyards, cheap lanyards, or customizable lanyards, we offer a variety of colors, widths, and styles to choose from.
