Frequently Asked Lanyard Questions
What are the main lanyard types that you sell?
Our biggest selling lanyard is definitely our polyester printed lanyards; you can have your choice of text or logo printed onto the material for an affordable lanyard that's suitable for a range of events, functions, expos and in house use for various circumstances.
Second to the polyester lanyard would be our dye sublimated range however we sell several different types of lanyard, offering both a choice of materials and styles. Our selection includes woven lanyards, eco lanyards, satin applique, nylon and tube polyester lanyards, and much more.
Woven lanyards have extra strength due to their woven polyester makeup and also allow your logo to be woven directly into the material. You can also choose tube lanyards, which use polyester stitched into a tube. There are also nylon lanyards that offer a high quality finish suited to more complex prints, with thick material and with a shiny surface that's ideal for making printed text and logos stand out.
Is there a minimum order?
The minimum order for our lanyards varies by product. Most custom styles have a minimum order of 50 units, while other products have a minimum order of 100 or 250 units. Products in our express store have a very low minimum order of 10 or don't require a minimum order. Each product page tells you the minimum order of units that you would need to order. Please remember we offer huge discounts on wholesale volume and the more units of an item you order the lower the price per unit drops.
What attachment options are available?
You can find a number of different attachment styles available with our lanyards. These include clips such as alligator clips and ID card clips, as well as dog clips and G clips. Other types of clip include trigger clips, safety release clips and short release clips.
There are also split rings, whistles, phone and camera holders and ski pass holders. Some of our fittings are available colour matched. As well as standard fittings, you can also discover a range of special fittings for some of our products, which offer different shapes and strengths.
What is the best lanyard style for complex logos?
Nylon lanyards are best for more complicated logos. Polyester is also very good thought not quite as tightly woven as nylon. Woven lanyards aren't the best option for displaying highly complex logos but there is a lot of detail possible so consult our team for info. We will assist with your material selection to ensure you get the best possible outcome.
How long are your lanyards?
A standard lanyard is 90cm before being sewn and looped. And a bit shorter once it has been sewn and assembled. We have ensured that these are the ideal length for most adults to wear comfortably around the neck. Ask us about options for custom sizes or kids sizes.

Do you have safe lanyards for medical settings?
People working in hospitals or other medical settings usually need to carry some form of ID for security purposes. However, wearing a lanyard might seem unsafe in a medical setting. Fortunately, some lanyard styles are ideal for environments where safety is important. We offer adjustable lanyards and multi safety lanyards, which are both good choices for maintaining safety. They both have clips that can be quickly undone to help prevent accidents with lanyards getting caught. Browse hospital and medical lanyards here.
