How Lanyards Help
Brand Your Company or Event
If everyone walked around with a “Hello My Name is” sticker,
there wouldn’t be much validity to believing that person who he or she claims
to be. With how advanced technology is, anyone can printout a nice little ID
badge. For businesses and corporations that may require a more official kind of
identification, many turn to
Once your company is stocked with a legitimate form of
identification, then what? They stuff them in their purse and wallet along with
their other IDs until it is called for. This sounds like a reasonable plan, but
some industries like the health sector require employees to keep their IDs
visible at all times.
The solution: Lanyards!
What are Lanyards?
In short, a lanyard is basically a cord—a cord that is
designed specifically to pass around one’s neck to hold a whistle, pens,
knives, and even ID badges! Lanyards are one of those commodities that you didn’t
know was a necessity until you actually need it. Chances are if your employer
has issued you an ID badge, you’ll most likely need a lanyard. It’s kind of
like needing a keychain to hold your keys!
What Can Lanyards Be
Lanyards give ID badges visibility. Sure, Badge Buddies are
colorful with large print, but that won’t mean much if it is hidden away. Lanyards
provide easy accessibility and make it easy for other employees to identify one
another. That is essential for corporations with a high volume of employees.
Here are some examples of businesses and events that could
use lanyards to help brand their organization.

keeping track of their students on and off their property with lanyards. They
can also show their school spirit with lanyards that match their school colors.
This is especially beneficial for scholastic events that bring different
*Teacher and Staff – Instantly distinguish the teachers and
staff from one another—and even the students by color coordinating lanyards for
teachers and administrators.
Sporting events can especially
benefit from lanyards. There are so many hands involved in such a huge event,
that it is oftentimes mandatory to require visibility of proper identification.
Coordinating departments with certain colors helps distinguish one from the
With hospitals, there’s really no
choice in whether one chooses to keep his or her ID tag visible or not. It is
the law. Here again, color-coding nurses and doctors badges from the working
staff and administrators will help colleagues better identify one another, and
the patients can as well.
There are many other organizations like government employees,
couriers and more that can benefit from colored lanyards. In addition to the
variety of colors, there are two main kinds of lanyards available:
*Break-away – The Break-away
