How to Create Custom Lanyards with Our Lanyard Builder

Custom lanyards are an excellent way to present your photo ID, event credentials or membership identification. Our high quality, low-cost custom lanyards can be ordered and custom-designed to feature your company or event name, logo, colors, and more.

There are a number of ways you can further customize your lanyards to make them work for your business – from the artwork that you include on your lanyard to the lanyard finishing options.

Custom lanyard logo or artwork

While we do carry a wide array of standard lanyards, adding your company logo or other artwork to custom lanyards is a great way to promote your company or brand. There are three printing options:

  • Silk Screen: most common; best for simple text and logos; lowest cost per lanyard
  • Dye Sublimation: high quality and long lasting; best for detailed logos or designs
  • Woven: extremely durable with your custom design woven in; optimal for large projects

Lanyard finishing optionsExample of a Breakaway Lanyard Clasp

You have options for how your lanyards are finished (e.g., the ends of lanyards can be sewn or crimped with a metal piece). You can also select a safety breakaway option so that if the lanyard is tugged or caught on something, it will easily break away from the wearer.

Breakaway lanyards are ideal, particularly for schools, healthcare facilities, or industrial organizations.

Lanyard attachment options

Our standard lanyard attachments are all included in the lanyard base price, and you have options for how the ID badge will attach to the lanyard, including:

  • Bulldog clip – a non-swivel attachment that’s the easiest to use
  • Metal swivel hook – keeps your ID badge facing forward at all timesStandard Lanyard Attachments
  • Split ring – most often used with your choice of strap clip
  • Swivel badge clip – attaches to your badge and keeps badges facing forward
