What are my other lanyard choices?

From earth-friendly, breakaway, reflective, round, flat, and custom, there are many options to choose from in ID badge lanyard styles. To help you decide which style is best for your needs, we'll take a look at some of the main options:

Lanyards are available in 4 primary widths:
  • 1/8'' round - best for one-time use, such as conferences and trade shows
  • 1/4'' round - offer a safety breakaway and allow your badge to be easily detached from your lanyard
  • 3/4'' flat - a basic option for day-to-day wear
  • 5/8'' flat - a great-looking choice when lanyards will be worn every day
Breakaway or non-breakaway:
  • The breakaway feature releases the lanyard from the neck when it's pulled, eliminating choking risk
  • Breakaway lanyards are ideal for schools, manufacturing facilities, or anywhere safety is a priority
Most common attachment styles:
  • Bulldog clip - easiest to attach to your card, but doesn't swivel
  • Metal swivel hook - swivel helps keep your badge facing forward
  • Split ring - typically used with a strap clip or other attachment
  • Trigger snap swivel hook - easy to attach your badge and keeps your badge facing forward
