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. We have a range of of multi purpose lanyards from conference lanyards to festival lanyards. Bespoke need not be expensive, we offer cheap custom lanyards, designed to meet your event requirements.
