One of the biggest hassles of going either to the school or to the office is wearing an identification card. Sometimes, you do not know how to wear it or where to put it because you have to pin it directly onto your clothes. There are also times when you cannot find your keys to open your house or to start your car – you cannot remember where to find them or where you put them. One way to solve these problems is to use badge lanyards.
What are badge lanyards? Badge lanyards are looped cords which hold an item and are usually worn around the neck. They are usually given by a company along with the company identification card and proximity pass or by schools and universities together with the student ID. They can also be made by special retailers and given away as souvenirs for special events. Most of these lanyards have a special attachment at the bottom part which lets you attach an identification card, a badge, a proximity pass, a card key or an electronic gadget.
Custom-made lanyards with different colors are usually used in the office. These lanyards are colored differently to designate easily which department the person came from. Each lanyard has the name and logo of the company which an employee needs to wear at all times, during working hours.
Schools and universities also use these lanyards to identify students apart from each other. Although all lanyards bear the school’s name and logo, each major or department have their own designs to easily identify the students.
These lanyards are also given away as souvenirs for special events such as conventions, bazaars, special talks, seminars or concerts. They can be either sold as a commemorative item by a sponsor or given as an advertising piece of different stalls and speakers. These are also used to identify people at an event. Security, customer service personnel, guest speakers, VIP, booth organizers, participants, and sponsors have their own identification IDs which they wore around their necks by the use of these lanyards.
There are also times when these lanyards are also given as a reward for a job well done. It is a simple yet inexpensive way to boost the morale of someone who will be receiving it.
What is a badge lanyard made of?
A badge lanyard is usually 36 to 38 inches long with the width of around 3/8 inches to ½ inches. Normally, badge lanyards are made of polyester, a sturdy but inexpensive type of material. Anyone will be able to wear a lanyard made of polyester since the material is hypoallergenic and safe, even for toddlers. Some lanyards are also made of nylon. Others also make use of paracords to make their lanyards flashy and more fashionable.
Badge lanyards are fully customizable, depending on the user’s preferences and needs. Different designs can be imprinted directly onto the lanyard through either the silk screen method or heat press technology. School or company name, logo, even short messages and quotations can be used – designs can be printed either on one side or both sides too. Some lanyards also come in different lengths, sizes, and colors, depending on how the user would like it to be. The attachment found at the bottom part of the lanyard can go from hooks, to attach identification cards or keys, or endless loops and sturdy string to attach a small gadget like a smart phone or music player.
Depending on how you want to use your badge lanyard, you can put almost anything that you prefer, particularly something which will be perfect for your needs and budget as well.
