Our lanyards are available in a choice of materials including flat polyester and nylon, tubular polyester for a more ‘chunky’ appearance and satin applique for a luxurious feel. We also offer an eco-friendly option with RPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) lanyards manufactured from recycled plastic bottles. Most of our lanyards are available in lace widths ranging from 10mm up to 30mm wide.

Logos, text and corporate branding can be added to the lanyards using a variety of production processes, with the most popular being screen printing, dye sublimation and embroidering. Many different colours of lace are held in stock as standard and pantone colours can be matched to ensure corporate branding guidelines are followed.

Many different types of attachments can be fitted to the lanyards or neck straps, making them suitable to attach directly to an ID card or event badge, or alternatively to a cardholder or plastic wallet. Available attachments include:

  • A wide choice of clips in both metal and plastic.
  • Plastic safety breakaway, so you can be sure your delegates or staff are not at risk when wearing their lanyards.
  • Quick release snap buckles.
  • Split rings and plastic strap clips.
  • Mobile phone loops.
  • Retractable badge reels for use with access control cards. Available in plastic or metal the badge reels can also be branded with a logo.
  • Metal ‘pit pass’ type attachments for premium quality, available with laser etched or embossed logos.

Dye sublimation lanyards, printed with your logo or branding can often be produced in as little as 3 days from sign off of visual. With a little more time, a wider choice of lanyards can be produced, with our full range of options usually available with 3-4 weeks. We are very experienced in working to tight deadlines and our sales team will discuss all current lead times and availability at time of enquiry.

Once an order has been placed with us, a visual layout proof of the design is created for approval and sign off before we commence with production. As well as the design, the visual will include all specification details such as type and width of material, the attachments to be fitted and quantity, to ensure you will receive exactly the specification of lanyard you require.

Lanyards, also known as neck straps, are extremely versatile and have many other uses than just a means of carrying or displaying conference and event badges, security passes and staff ID cards. Printed lanyards also frequently used as a promotional item to raise brand awareness, or to carry a sponsor’s logo or message at an event. Organisers are often able to arrange for one of the companies who are participating in their event to sponsor the lanyards and therefore generating additional revenue as well as covering the cost of production.

Lanyards are also an excellent tool for clear visual identification of various categories of delegates at an event, or people gaining access to a venue or office building. Different colour lanyards or a change in branding can be used to distinguish between, for example Delegates, Speakers, Staff, or in a corporate environment to denote Staff, Visitor, Temporary Staff.

In addition to carrying ID cards or event badges, the many different attachments available with our lanyards enables them to be used for carrying a variety of other items such as keys, mobile phones, penholders, water bottles, whistles and bottle openers.

IDentilam began assembling lanyards in our factory in the 1990’s and produce hundreds of thousands of lanyards each year. Our assembly equipment is especially used today where combinations of lanyard and accessory are joined together.

We pride ourselves in our consistency of quality, quick manufacturing lead times and reliability in meeting tight deadlines.


I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much to you and your team over the last few months working on the T2 Royal Celebration Event. It has been challenging and hectic at times but we got all lanyards and badges designed and printed on time and the client was thrilled with the outcome. Everyone we have worked with from IDentilam have been brilliant and always helpful and there to answer any silly questions we might have so thank you for your patience and understanding.
