Nylon Lanyards The Strongest Lanyards

In the world of promotional products durability is the key to any promotional item. It is not enough just knowing that you are going to give someone something with your logo on it. You want to know that the products that you are giving will be in use for a long time. I mean what is the point of giving something to someone if it is going to be gone the next day or the day after that. You want to know that it will stand the test of time and be around for a long time. The longer that it survives the test of time the more value it is to you and your company. One such a product is nylon lanyards.

Nylon lanyards belong to the lanyard family which is a cord or strap worn around the neck, shoulder, or wrist to carry such items as keys or identification cards. You have long lanyards which go around your neck or shoulders and then you have the short lanyard, also know as a short strap, which you carry around your wrist. Lanyards come in different colours and are made from various material and are generally printed with a company logo and given to staff and customers. The nylon lanyard is one such lanyards and is immensely popular amongst the lanyard using population.

Nylon lanyards are particularly popular precisely because they are so strong. Think of your seatbelt in your car. What material is your seatbelt made from? It is made from nylon. And why is it made from nylon? It is made from nylon material because it needs to be strong and there can’t be any possibility that it will break in the event of an accident. The same can be said of a nylon lanyard. It needs to be strong so that it can’t break. If you are carrying your security pass or keys on your lanyard then you can surely appreciate this.

In the world of promotional products the nylon lanyard can be printed with a corporate logo of message. Also it can come with generic print terms such as “Staff” or “Security” etc. As it is worn around the neck and in a very prominent position it is great as an identification method. What makes it even better when it is made from nylon is that you know it will last.

Market Forces Effect On Lanyards

You wouldn’t think that there would be too much in common between the humble lanyard and the market forces like exchange rates and geopolitical events like Donald Trumps trade war with China. You would not could not even start to imagine that would could effect the other. But the reality is it can. You see lanyards are manufactured in China. There are some small local manufacturers that do small quantities but the lions share are made in China. So when world events effect the currency market then they also end up effecting a product such as the little lanyard.

All manufactured products coming out of China are valued in USD. The USD being the all mighty American Dollar. The reason for this is because most raw materials are calculated in USD so it just makes it easier for the Chinese to price their manufactured goods in USD. Again there are some smaller manufacturers or non-export orientated factories that sell their goods in RMB, the Chinese currency, but they mainly service their domestic market. That said even factories that sell their goods in RMB are effected when there are currency fluctuations as the raw materials they buy are in USD.

So lately you would have noticed volatility in the currency markets. This is because the Chinese Government decided to devalue their currency the RMB in retaliation to American tariffs on their goods. This in turn spooked investors and causing them to flee fringe currencies like the AUD, or Australian Dollar, for the safety of the USD. So for a country such as Australia all the sudden they would find themselves paying more for imported goods such as custom lanyards. You see even custom lanyards can be effected by the policies of US president Donald Trump.

Luckily the price of custom printed lanyards is yet to go up. Indeed the good people at Ezy Lanyards are yet to raise their prices instead closing to absorb the cost. That said should this situation persist then you can expect all suppliers of custom lanyards to raise their price as well as any and all imported products. Lets hope that that doesn’t happen and that the AUD at least returns to a point above 70c against the USD.

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.

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.

 

 

Lanyards – Different Materials For Different Occasions

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.
