3 Ways To Make The Most Out Of Your Lanyard This School Year

When most people think of going back to school, they think of shopping for new clothes and supplies. But there's one must-have item that often gets overlooked: the lanyard. A lanyard is a great way to keep your keys and other essentials handy and can also be used for fun decorative purposes.

Although it's barely September, the start of a new school year is already in full swing. As the days get busier, taking advantage of every opportunity is crucial to make things easier for yourself. That's why we’re here to remind you about the importance of your lanyard—your school ID lanyard. If you're like most teachers, you probably don't give it much thought outside of using it to hold your ID and keys. But this year, why not use your lanyard to its fullest potential? Here are three ways to make the most of your lanyard this school year.

3 Ways to Rock Lanyards this School Year

1. Use it to keep your keys handy.

One of the most annoying things in the world is misplacing your keys. You could spend hours tearing apart your house, only to find that they were in your jacket pocket the whole time. If this sounds familiar, you might want to try attaching your keys to a lanyard. That way, they'll always be within reach when you need them. You can also use a custom lanyard with a keychain clip to keep track of other small items, like your USB drive or flash drive. By keeping everything on a lanyard, you can rest assured that you'll never lose track of your belongings again.





2. Use it as a bookmark. 

If you're a teacher constantly losing your place in your reading assignments, try using a lanyard as a bookmark. This simple trick will help you stay on track and finish your reading on time. To use a lanyard as a bookmark, simply thread the lanyard through the pages of your book to the point where you left off. The lanyard will act as a marker, making it easy for you to find your place again. This bright neon lanyard is easy to spot, so you can easily see it when looking for your reading assignments. You can also use a lanyard to keep track of important papers or documents. Simply thread the lanyard through the pages and loop it around a pen or pencil. This will prevent you from misplacing your papers and help you stay organized.


3. Use it to make a fashion statement. 

In recent years, teachers have been using lanyards to make a fashion statement. While lanyards are traditionally worn around the neck to hold ID badges, keys, or other small items, you can also use them to accessorize an outfit. This trend started with a few fashion-forward teachers who began embellishing their lanyards with beads, charms, and other trinkets. Soon, other teachers started following suit, and the trend spread across the country. While some people may view this as a frivolous use of lanyards, there's no denying they can add a personal touch to any outfit. For example, this polka dot lanyard is sure to spice up any outfit at school. And who knows? Maybe one-day lanyards will be the next big thing in fashion.
