Our Dye Sublimated Lanyards are the best for complex logos. Where fine details and complex colours are required, the dye transfer process ensures these details are transferred to the material.

How long are your lanyards?
Our standard lanyards are approximately 91.4cm before being sewn and looped together. We have ensured that these are the ideal length for most adults to wear comfortably around the neck. Ask us about options for lengths as we are able to make them shorter or longer to suit your requirements.

Do you have safe lanyards for medical settings?
People working in hospitals or other medical settings usually need to carry some form of ID for security purposes. However, wearing a lanyard might seem unsafe in a medical setting due to the choking hazard they provide inherently. We offer lanyards with single or multiple “break away” clips that quickly detach preventing the lanyard from choking the wearer. Speak to one of our team so they can assist you in ordering the right specification for your requirements.
