What is a lanyard?

A lanyard is a strap worn around the neck that is often made from a 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. 

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.

There is a common misconcetption that a lanyard is the name for the badge or the collective name for the whole item (lanyard + badge). But, It’s not. The lanyard is just the bit of material around the neck. There are also a number of commonly misspelled variations for lanyards such as ‘landyard’, ‘land yard’ and even, ‘lenyards’... can you believe it?

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.
