Badge lanyards are deceptively simple products that actually have numerous uses and functions. Their simple design allows them to be easily customized thus extending their longevity as a product. Often without realizing it, most people have actually worn a lanyard at least once in their life.
Despite their modern appearance and printed designs, lanyards are actually not a recent innovation. The high-tech designing, printing, and creation processes simply allow them to blend into more modern times.
In the past, leather was the material of choice for creating the sturdy holders when they were not yet known as lanyards. They were then used to support heavy objects such as pistols or swords so they were expected to be durable.
Today though, pricey leather has been replaced with cheaper materials such as polyester and nylon. The good news is that although the material has changed, the durability has not been compromised.
The high quality synthetic materials can still reliably support even your heavy water containers. Regardless, even without the threat of an accusation of public disturbance, it is still not recommended that modern lanyards be used to support heavy weapons. They are most fit for keeping your valuable items better organized while giving you added style.
The highly durable fabrics of lanyards make them fit for everyday use. For this reason, most schools and offices actually include badge lanyards as part of daily uniforms. They are easy to care for and are visible even from afar. Promoters, hospital staff, coaches, and even busy moms also make use of the useful and functional accessory.
Badge lanyards however do not merely serve as mere fashion statements. Their most important function is of course reliably holding and securing your important ID cards. This feature also helps security guards when performing customary security inspections. A lanyard will make sure that these essential items will always be on your person at all times.
The longevity of lanyards also makes them an ideal, versatile, promotional tool. Badge lanyards do not discriminate between ages, genders, or social classes. Therefore, they can be distributed or sold to a much wider market to serve as a cheap but efficient marketing tool.
Individuals who receive lanyards with your company’s brand logo are also more likely to make use of the item because of its functionality. They will also be more likely to appreciate the item since its eye-catching colors and designs could encourage them to incorporate the lanyard into their everyday wardrobe. Customers could also show off their vibrant new accessory to their friends and encourage them to seek out the brand and acquire their own lanyard.
A lanyard will be able to provide your brand with more sufficient advertising as compared to other small branded items. Although a pen with a printed logo still serves a useful purpose, they are more likely to languish inside a purse or office cabinet instead of maximizing their potential as a promotional tool.
At a fraction of the cost of a billboard or commercial, badge lanyards could already provide you with subtle but adequate customer visibility. They are also likely to be used by their owners during travel. This means that they can also be seen by more people as compared to the number of people who will stop to look at a stationary advertisement.
Lanyards that are not specifically made for official use or for advertising purposes can also serve more personal uses. They can be used to secure small items that are likely to get lost or misplaced. Keys, cell phones, and spare flash drives are the common items attached to lanyards aside from IDs. Depending on your specific needs, lanyards can serve as personalized, fashion accessories or invaluable, organization tools that make your life so much simpler and easier.
