Lanyards for Rock Concerts

It is often thought that a lanyard is a boring item meant just for office workers and librarians. Nothing could be further from the truth. A lanyard is a versatile item that can be utilised across all industries and events. Apart from being practical for day to day uses, they are also great for concerts and events. One such event that are great for is rock concerts. It you have attended a rock concert or gone to see your favourite pop start at your local concert hall then you most certainly would have seen someone wearing a lanyards.

With large events such as rock concert it is important for attendees to be able to identify staff as those events. Any concert that you attend you will invariably see all sorts of support staff looking after the every needs of the concert goers. There are of course the ushers. How would anyone be able to identify the ushers without their lanyards and polo shirts with “staff” emblazed across them. Also how could trust their credentials without their ID attached to their lanyard.

People also inevitable get sick at these rock concerts which requires them to seek out the help of first aid staff. They too would require the staff to have identification would would necessitate a lanyard and an ID card attached.

So next time you go to a rock concert or a pop concert with Madonna, Tailor Swift or Metallica then look out for what the staff are wearing and you will see that a printed lanyard is not boring after all.

Wristbands for a Cheap and Useful Promotion

One of the hardest things to do in marketing is to keep your budget in check. As we all know it is easy to spend money and it all adds up. With promotional products the old adage is true; “A penny saved is a penny earned”. So when thinking about where to spend your money you can’t go past wristbands. A wristband is one of the cheapest promotional products you can find. With a wristband you know you will get a lot of mileage for your dollar. Especially where you are hosting a large event with a lot of attendees a wristband will be both adaptable and memorable all together.

When thinking about adding a promotional wristband it is good to know that you have many options from which to chose. Sure you can just go with the run of the mill plain wristband. I mean it can be printed and comes in a lot of colour options so you can’t go wrong. But if you are looking to do something special then it is a good idea to think of the other options available to you. If you thought you didn’t have a lot of choices with custom wristbands then you are definitely wrong. Below is some food for thought when it comes to wristbands.

Have you ever heard about embossing and debossing. First embossing is where you have a raised surface. So in the context of the silicone wristband the logo will be raised which you will be able to feel when you run your finger across it. embossing is a branding option which is used often where there is a desire to enhance the look of a product. It is often also used in textiles and other product categories. With promotional wristbands it is a fantastic option for adding appeal to the product. Debossing on the other hand is where the logo is indented into the  wristband. Again it is a great method of branding which adds value to the product without incurring a huge cost. In fact both methods are very inexpensive cost not any more then a basic print.

If you are looking for something a little more fun then it is worth considering a slap band. A slap band if basically a silicone wristband which when slapped across the wrist wraps itself around the wrist. The slap band can be printed with your logo and can come packed flat or wrapped. They are a great little promotional product. It is especially great if you are targeting the youth market which is generally more receptive to fun products and gadgets.

So if you are planning a promotional campaign or have an event coming up then please consider a wristband. Believe me you can’t go wrong.

 

What is a Lanyard and How Can it Help You

History of the Lanyard

The earliest historical mention of a lanyards is from 15th century France. The word “lanière” referred to a thong or strap apparatus. In the French military, lanyards were used to connect a pistol, sword or whistle (for signalling) to a uniform semi-permanently.[1] Lanyards were commonly used by cavalry and naval officers at sea. The reason being that a pistol lanyard could easily be removed and reattached by the user while staying connected to the pistol whether it is drawn or in a holster.

In the military, lanyards of various colour combinations and braid patterns are worn on the shoulders of uniforms to denote the wearer’s qualification or regimental affiliation. In horse regiments, lanyards were worn on the left, enabling a rider to pull a whistle from the left tunic pocket and maintain communication with his troop. Members of the British Royal Artillery wear a lanyard which originally held a key for adjusting the fuzes of explosive shells.[2]

So whilst lanyards might seem like a modern phenomena they are something that has a long history but which has adapted to remain relevant.

How Can a Lanyard Help You

As mentioned in previous articles there are many applications for lanyards. The mainly applications include but are not limited to the following:

  • To carry keys
  • To carry identification
  • To carry a pistol (historically)
  • As military identification (historically)

Apart from promotional lanyards and the corporate use there are other uses for lanyards.

Electronics

These days many electronic devises require a lanyard or are enhanced by one. There are a plethora or devises such as cameras, mobile phones, MP3 players, and USBS flash drive which require a lanyard to prevent loss. Often they are branded which is a convenient way for companies to tie in a simple cost effective product with a more expensive devise. I am sure we have all see people with anyone of these devises hanging from their necks.

Corporate Uniforms

Many corporate uniforms now include a lanyard as well. By branding the lanyard they try to ensure that there is no clash with their corporate branded. There is nothing worse then seeing one of your staff in their uniform with the logo of another company around their neck. Worst still is if they have that of one of your competitors. So how better to promote branding continuity then to supply all the necessary branded items for your staff.

There days lanyards are looked upon as a very inexpensive promotional product when holding an events or promotional campaign. Not only are they inexpensive but they are very practical and will remain in use long after the event is finished. But how do you chose what material to use for an event? While it might not sound like the most pressing issue it certainly warrants some thought when placing an order for your custom printed lanyards.

Lanyard as we know come in a number if material options. The material we choose to use can range from what our objective is, to how we want to be perceive to the obvious intended application.

Polyester Lanyards – Ribbed polyester lanyards are the most common custom printed lanyard out there. They are widely used in many different kinds of events. They are inexpensive and easy to print. Ribber polyester lanyards are commonly screen printed and are available to come with a variety of attachments. The main reason you would chose a ribbed polyester lanyards is that they are the work horse of lanyards. They do what they are intended to do and won’t break the bank.

Nylon Lanyards – Printed nylon lanyards are also a mainstay of the lanyard world. They are more sturdy then polyester lanyards and are also commonly screen printed with a logo. Customers generally go with nylon lanyards as they prefer the smooth finish that comes with this particular material. The smooth finish is nice and shiny and offers a look of elegance. Whilst marginally more expensive then a polyester lanyard they don’t cost too much but to attached a higher MOQ.

Satin Lanyards – Satin lanyards are for people who want a nicer feel to their lanyards. As with satin in general they are nice and smooth but also soft to feel. Satin lanyard would also suit events where the participants are required to wear their lanyards for long periods of time and therefore don’t want the chaffing usually associated with having something hanging from your neck all day long. It is also the lanyard to consider if you want a sublimation print as only the satin lanyard can take this branding method.

To be sure there are other materials like bamboo and PET. But I will discuss them in later posts so as not to bore you too much. Nonetheless if you are in a bind as to which material you should chose for your next promo campaign then give EzyLanyards a call and we will help you out.
