What is the clip on a lanyard called?
Lanyard clips generally refer to the attachment located at the base of the lanyard where hooks or ID holders can be added. The most popular attachments are swivel, metal J-hooks because of their versatility. Other carabiner type clips such as lobster, slide and oval clips are also available. Bulldog clips are similar to chip clips or clothespins and are best suited for holding badges and identification cards for ID lanyards. A clip on the back of a lanyard, located behind the wearer's neck, is a safety breakaway clip. These clips offer an added safety feature that can help prevent choking if a lanyard is pulled or tugged.

How are custom lanyards printed?
Printing methods for custom lanyards are determined by the style chosen. Our economy lanyards are dye sublimated in one or full color print. Dye sublimation on our economy satin polyester lanyards provides a smooth, integrated imprint with a delicate and attractive, shiny finish. Dye sublimation printing produces a vivid color and the ability to print intricate details. Screen printed lanyards offer durability and versatility. Screen printed imprints allow for bold designs that will make your logo or design stand out! Lanyards are printed in a step-and-repeat pattern on one side. Step-and-repeat patterns cover the entire front side of the lanyard on the left and right side while looking at the lanyard straight on.
