What is a lanyard used for?
Lanyards (also known as neck straps) are worn around the neck and used as a method to carry and display personal ID. Lanyards are typically made from two pieces of polyester around 10-25mm wide, and are stitched together at either end to create a wearable 'hoop'. At one end of the lanyard, a form of ID (usually a name badge, ID card or laminate pass) is held by a clip. For safety reasons, most lanyards also come with an optional breakaway connector at the neck end, allowing the lanyard to come away freely should it get caught.
Lanyards are most often used as a security measure at events, to help accurately identify attendees and occasionally for personal use e.g. as a keychain or camera strap.
ID&C UK offers neck lanyards for sale with a choice of clips and attachments including plastic, metal and retractable varieties.A lanyard is normally worn around the neck and can vary in style, material and design; they are often bought alongside our event passes which attach easily to the end of our lanyards.
