An Introduction to Lanyards
An Introduction to Lanyards by Dave Lavinsky
Lanyards are pieces of rope, wire, or cloth specifically designed to
attach to objects. They are typically used to secure small items such as a
work badge, key, identification card, eyeglasses, whistle, cell phone,
bottle opener, knife, or compass. A lanyard can be worn around the neck,
arm, waist or wrist. When worn around the wrist, a lanyard is often referred
to as a “wristlet.”
One typical use of a lanyard is to wear it looped around the neck to secure
and display an object that is frequently needed. Securing the object with a
neck lanyard keeps it readily available for use, provides easy access to the
object, and keeps the hands free. In a business environment, many employees
choose to wear lanyards around the neck to display an identification badge
or secure keys. A lanyard may also be attached to a belt loop to allow the
secured object to be tucked into a pocket.
There are as many lanyard styles available and there are many uses for them.
People who like to differentiate themselves from the “norm” can have a
lanyard custom printed or personalized. A lanyard can be as simple and
inexpensive as a 3/8” shoelace style cord or as extravagant as a wire strung
with expensive crystals and gemstones.
Lanyards are available for purchase through a plethora of suppliers, and
many can be found online. The lanyard business is booming, as many large
businesses continue to purchase lanyards by the thousands for their
employees. Even when custom printed with company names, logos, symbols, or
slogans, lanyards are relatively inexpensive. They serve as an effective and
convenient source of advertising when worn at trade shows or given away for
Lanyards have become increasingly popular for their ability to keep
important objects close at hand while simultaneously keeping hands free.
