How to Order the Best Printed Lanyards

Printed lanyards are a great way to provide employee identification to your customers without forcing your team to wear uniforms or badges. They look great and will showcase your company name and brand logo well. They’re also very comfortable so your employees won’t hesitate to wear them when they’re on company premises or even outside it. However, you need to choose the right lanyard for your brand. At Ezy Lanyards, we’ve noticed that some customers don’t know how to choose the best lanyard for their company and often make mistakes. Here are some suggestions that can help:

Determine the Budget

Different lanyard materials have different prices so you need to decide the budget before you choose a lanyard. Materials like faux leather or PVC are a little more expensive in comparison to materials like polyester and bootlace. You can browse through our website, look at the prices for the amount you need, calculate the final cost, and then decide to place the order. Bear in mind that the more you order, the higher lower the cost of each individual unit would be. For example, a nylon lanyard would cost $1.80 per unit if you order 100 units and $0.75 if you order 5,000 units. If you want to save some money, it’s a good idea to order in bulk.

Choose the Right Material

You need to choose the right material for your printed lanyards. You can conduct an employee survey to determine what they would prefer because some lanyards are heavier and less comfortable than others. For example, the polyester lanyard is very light weight and bright so most of your employees would find it acceptable. On the other hand, the faux leather lanyard is thick, durable, and ideal for rugged conditions and outdoor use. However, some employees might not like the added weight around their neck.

Band and Print Colour

It’s very important to choose the band and print colours carefully because you want your company name and logo to pop. You should choose high contrast colours to ensure your printed lanyards are visible from a distance. For example, white logo or lettering on a black background is very visible and would immediately catch the attention of passers-by. This would increase exposure to your brand name and that would help with marketing.


You can use any kind of lanyard for light indoor use but if you need something more resilient and durable, you should consider tougher materials like faux leather, PVC, or recycled PET lanyards. If you’re uncertain, you can speak with our customer care representative to get more information.
