Things to Keep In Mind When Commissioning ID Lanyards

ID Lanyards are clearly very popular nowadays, both among those who wear them and those who commission them. Fans of ID Lanyards generally have few things to keep in mind when they purchase, wear, and use the lanyards, given the ease with which the latter can be used and the variety of functions that they serve. For those who plan on having ID Lanyards made, however, there are considerably more things to determine before they can even give the go-signal for the lanyards to be made.

The following are just a handful of the questions that potential clients need to answer before they make the final order for their ID Lanyards:

1.What will the lanyards be used for?

This is perhaps the most crucial question to address since it will determine the design, the make, and the material used for the lanyards. Lanyards that are primarily meant to be promotional items (such as those meant to promote a brand or a musical group) should have a striking and memorable design that catches the eyes, but they don’t necessarily require high-quality fabrics or multiple attachments since they are primarily ornamental in nature. Lanyards that are meant for industrial venues such as military bases or factories, on the other hand, require the opposite. The design would not be of much concern (the look of the lanyards would only need to be distinctive and unmistakable), but the material used to make the actual lanyard should be durable (preferably waterproof in some cases) and special attachments (such as a retractable hook) are often needed.

2.Who will be using the lanyards?

ID LanyardsAs with the first question, the answer to this one will also play a role in the customization process for the lanyards. ID Lanyards meant for young children in elementary school, for instance, need to be shorter than the standard lanyard length. In the same vein, employees who work mostly in the field (i.e., outside the office) would require a different kind of material for their lanyards as compared to employees working a desk job. Also, concert organizers and security personnel may require special features for their lanyards (such as luminescent ink for visibility in low-light areas and/or attachments that can carry security tools like whistles or pepper spray).

3.How much is the budget for the lanyards?

Given the many customization options for lanyards out there, it is important for the client to define a clear budget for commissioning lanyards to make certain aspects of the decision-making process a lot easier. A realistic budget should also be a given, and once both the budget and the purpose of the lanyards have been established, it becomes easier to define which lanyard features are non-negotiable (e.g., durable/waterproof material for the lanyard cords, mobile phone/device hooks for the lanyard attachments, etc.) and which ones are merely optional (i.e., options that are the client can include if they still have the budget for them after the primary specifications have been addresses, such as multi-color lanyard straps and the like).

4.How intricate is the company logo and/or brand name?

This question will determine the appropriate lanyard type and imprint method for the client’s specifications. Simple, one-color designs, logos and typefaces are often the most versatile since practically any kind of lanyard and imprint method can handle them. Clients of companies that require intricate, multi-color designs, logos, and typefaces, on the other hand are normally advised to go for print-screened lanyards since embroidering or weaving a complex design into the lanyard cord can be both difficult and costly. Furthermore, the look of the company logo and/or brand name also determines the length and the width of the lanyard. Simpler logos require less space, while complex ones require otherwise.
