Simple Ways To Get The Most Out Of Your Lanyards

Lanyards have stepped up their game in recent years. What used to be a boring piece of string that was mandatory to wear at work turned into something versatile and fun that could now be seen as part of your identity. There are many other uses for these practical accessories. We’ve come up with a few ways to use your lanyard and perhaps make it easier and more fun to carry your lanyards around, whether in your personal life or the workforce. 

Look Out for Your Well-Being

Face Mask Lanyards are an easy way to keep your dirty fingers off your mask. If your mask lacks style, there is a way to personalize it and make it unique with your personalized lanyard that adds an extra flare of pizazz. Lanyards are great for an office setting—take your mask off at your desk and leave it on your neck to prevent it from sitting on a contaminated surface. School teachers can use a lanyard for the same purpose as they move around.


Wear As A Bracelet

If you make frequent use of your lanyard accessories, simply tying your lanyard strap around your wrist and wearing it as a bracelet can keep your items close at hand. In particular, car keys and workplace or classroom entry fobs make great candidates for the “beads” of your lanyard bracelet. Plus, displaying your lanyard around your wrist makes your customized messaging highly visible, allowing you to communicate your brand with every gesture.

Protect Information

The EK Black Lanyard & Dual-Sided Smartcard Holder stops sensitive information on an employee’s ID smart card used at a large corporation from being hacked into, such as the cardholder's name, title, and security clearance. Even if the face of the card just features a name and a photo, a wealth of data may exist on the chip beneath the surface. Such vulnerabilities would be particularly troubling for high-security organizations or government offices dealing in classified data or intelligence, and these corporations would not want to take a risk.


Save Time With Efficiency

Often, security personnel require a key card to enter sensitive or secure areas multiple times throughout their shift. Removing a lanyard from around the neck to insert or scan a key card is not just a nuisance; it can also waste valuable time, especially in emergency circumstances in which personnel need immediate access. Our Locking Lanyards are popular with government agency employees who need to show their ID badges and insert into a card reader while accessing secure computer systems. 


Nowadays, you're more likely to see a lanyard in the office or at a corporate event. But the humble lanyard's got so much more life in it than just being stuck in the office all day long.

Lanyards will prove handy when you're out and about, and they'll provide you with functionality that comes easily and in simple ways. Need to find the perfect lanyard? Head over to our website and let Specialist ID provide you with the best one.
