How to create impressive custom lanyards and who to ask

How to create impressive lanyards

Don’t settle for anything less than professionally designed custom lanyards from the pros.

Just be sure the pros have the training and experience you need! The reputation of your summer camp, school, church or brand is too important to ruin with cheap lanyards and shoddy printing. Be choosy!

How do you make custom lanyards?

To be honest, most promotional products companies use the same basic process to make lanyards with logos. However, there are subtle differences such as printing techniques. Lanyards at Totally Promotional are printed by dye sublimation or screen printing; our experts choose the best fit for your lanyard style.

Dye sublimation gives your polyester lanyards an attractive, shiny finish and is best for detailed designs. Screen printing provides durability and is chosen for bold designs that stand out. Our lanyards are printed with a step-and-repeat pattern on one side or both sides for full-color imprints.

We also offer a large selection of clips and attachments that hold ID cards, keys, credit cards and cash. You’ll find practical and easy-to-wear lanyard accessories for trade shows, hospitals, school staff, concert VIPs and corporate events.

Creating top-quality lanyards is a science the Totally Promotional team mastered with years of experience. We measure our success by how well we meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.

We check to guarantee the correct attachment, attachment size, if it gets a buckle release or breakaway, and if it receives anything special such as a badge holder. We also look for color contrasts, art issues that we believe will not transfer properly. Any quality concerns are directed to our Quality Control Manager.

Taylor Brandon, lanyard department coordinator at Totally Promotional

Paula Lessick, a lanyard supervisor at Totally Promotional, said good communication among team members keeps everyone alerted to possible design issues. The team also shares information on product and imprint color combinations to prevent poor results due to low contrast.

What is your most popular lanyard?

Lessick and lanyard department coordinator, Taylor Brandon, both agree the most popular style requested at Totally Promotional is the 3/4″ Economy Polyester Lanyard. It is a best-seller for its incredibly low price (less than $1 each for 100) and the 60+ strap colors available.

Coming in at second and third place are the 1″ Economy Polyester Lanyard and the 3/4″ Economy Polyester Lanyard that features a safety breakaway clip. Shop all of our best-selling economy lanyards.
