ID cards are an important security feature for every organization, and you can make them even more effective with the right ID card accessory. Vivid color lanyards are one accessory option that will enhance your ID cards and promote your organization's brand.

Made of a soft poly-satin fabric, the vivid color lanyard is comfortable and durable for long term wear. Begin the customization process, and you'll find that vivid color lanyards are a blank canvas! Dye-sublimated technology allows for any custom design to be created within the lanyard's soft material.

Custom vivid color lanyards are a great addition to any identification strategy. Here are a few examples of vivid color lanyards being used to their full potential.

Custom Printed Lanyards
Create your own vivid color custom lanyards.

Create Custom Lanyards for Events. The custom vivid color lanyard is a great option for events, conferences, or tradeshows. This lanyard is best for displaying color logos and the soft fabric makes it comfortable to wear all day long. We donated custom vivid color lanyards to Art Prize, a large art competition in Grand Rapids, for all the artists. They were a big hit! You can learn more about the use of the lanyards at the event here on the IDville blog.

Create Custom Lanyards for Schools. Prepare for the back to school rush by ordering custom lanyards for all your students and staff. One of our school customers assigns a different color lanyard to each grade, so it's easy to visually identify students, even from a distance. Plus, with the full color customization option, you can display your school mascot and promote safety and school spirit at the same time!

Create Custom Lanyards for Businesses. Put forward a professional image with your business ID cards and accessories by designing coordinating ID cardsand vivid color lanyards. One of our retail store customers ordered custom vivid color lanyards for its entire staff from IDville. The lanyards clearly displayed the store's full color logo and tag line in front of customers.

Lanyards Keep ID Cards Visible for Back to School

by david 23. August 2011 08:08

Back to school preparations are underway, and before you know it teachers, students, and staff will be headed off to school in the morning. Get your school ready by outfitting everyone with the proper ID badge accessories. Not at a school? Our lanyard recommendations can still help you determine which style is right for your organization!

The different schedules and responsibilities of school personnel requires different kinds of ID badge accessories to ensure ID badges are properly used and displayed. Lanyards are the most popular ID badge accessory for schools because they keep ID cards visible at all times, making visual recognition of students, staff, and visitors simple.

Create your Custom Lanyard at IDville.com” width=Here are our identification experts’ recommendations for school year lanyards:

Stock Lanyards for Students. Student identification is crucial to school security, but making sure students display their ID card can be a challenge. Stock lanyards are an affordable option you can choose to give each student a way to display their ID card. Be sure you add the breakaway function, however, to protect students from possible choking hazards.

Theme Lanyards for Visitors. Schools are a hub of activity, and visitors are constantly in and out of the building.  Protect your students and staff by requiring all visitors to wear a themed lanyard when they are in the building. The themed lanyards help adults in the building easily identify approved visitors.

Fashion Lanyards for Office Staff. Give the office staff some creative liberty with their lanyard choice. Allow staff members to select the beaded lanyard in their favorite color scheme or several different lanyards to coordinate with their outfits.

USB Lanyards for Teachers. Welcome teachers back to school with a USB lanyard they can use to both display their ID card and carry important data. The USB lanyard has 1 GB storage and detaches from the lanyard for easy use. To make a special gift for the school year, customize your USB lanyard with your school name and the year.

Promote Student ID Cards with Custom Lanyards

by todd 3. March 2011 17:01

It can be impossible to get children to do what you want them to do. I should know - I have three daughters! Each of them has their own amazing personality…and a stubborn streak of independence. Sometimes it feels like they fight everything I say!

Getting students to wear their ID cards can also feel like a never ending battle. Many schools have ID card policies in place requiring students to wear their ID cards or face repercussions. Schools can take a more positive approach to the situation by incentivizing kids to wear their ID cards with fun ID card accessories, like custom lanyards.

Custom lanyards are a great option for students. Lanyards are an appropriate display options for students because they keep student ID cards in constant view. You can also choose enhanced features like breakaway lanyards and antimicrobial lanyards that ensure children’s safety.

Custom lanyard options offered by IDville.

There are several ways you can encourage kids to wear their ID cards with custom lanyards. Here are a few of my suggestions. Share your own strategies and ideas in the comments!

 Promote the School Mascot. Tap into students’ school spirit with custom lanyards that feature your school mascot, logo, and colors. These custom lanyards will be both a sign of safety and school spirit.

 Create Sports Lanyards. Encourage students to support their favorite school team by creating custom lanyards for each sport. Students can even rotate their custom lanyards according to the seasons!

 Classroom Lanyards. Promote camaraderie among students by creating custom lanyards for classrooms or grade levels. For instance, all students in the third grade can wear purple lanyards that say “Bertha Vos Third Grader” and the fourth graders can have a different color. The colors will also help teachers and staff easily identify children.

 Flair for Custom Lanyards. Once you’ve created your own custom lanyards  (the options are endless!), let students decorate their lanyards with lapel pins and stickers. Create classroom rewards that students can display on their custom lanyards to create an ID card accessory that not only promotes safety, but pride as well!

Promote your Organization’s Culture with ID Cards & Accessories

ID cards are an important part of an organization’s safety and security plan, but they can also be used for the “lighter” side of business: promoting your culture.

This month’s Identify Newsletter introduced our sister company, Baudville, and how to combine its employee recognition products with identification and safety for a better work environment. You can read the complete newsletter here, and put a few of the following tips in to practice in the new year!

Promote your culture with ID cards:

 Use your ID card design to show off the personality of your organization. Incorporate a picture of a favorite spot within your facility, use lots of color and allow individuals to have a little fun with their ID picture.

 Equip all employees or students with fun accessories for ID card display. Create custom lanyards for your organization. You can even personalize each lanyard with staff names! Themed lanyards and themed badge reels can also promote your culture and bring a little fun to every day at work.

 Maintain a small inventory of themed lanyards and badge reels, and give employees access to it. Encourage employees to select a new item on a regular basis. This will help to keep them motivated to wear their ID card.

 Have employees, staff or students display their recognition and award lapel pins on a specialty badge holder. Pin Display badge holders hold both your ID card and lapel pins.

Something new is coming to IDville!

Custom lanyards are a popular ID card accessory for events, schools, frontline employees, businesses and more. Custom lanyards allow you to promote your organization and always keep safety a priority. IDville has unique custom lanyard options that can meet your organization’s needs and protect your staff and students.

Create Custom Lanyards for All Occasions

 Lanyard/Badge Reel Combo – Great for conferences and events, a lanyard/badge reel combo makes name badges and materials more accessible to attendees.

 USB Lanyard – Perfect for teachers, IT and data heads, the USB lanyard allows you to take your data with you wherever you go.

 Breakaway – The breakaway lanyard option is an important safety feature. If the lanyard gets caught on an item, the breakaway prevents the wearer from choking. Breakaway is available as an add-on to several of our custom lanyard options.

 Child Size Lanyard – Keep children safe with a lanyard designed just for them. The smaller size fits children better and properly displays their identification.

 Eco-Friendly Lanyard – Create your custom lanyard out of recycled plastic soda bottles! With the eco-friendly lanyard, you can promote both your organization and your dedication to the environment.

Custom Lanyard Options

by todd 21. September 2010 09:55

Custom lanyards are a popular and affordable way to get your employees and students to wear their ID cards, but the creation process can be overwhelming! There are many decisions to make for even a simple lanyard, and it can be difficult to know what features are best for your needs. This post will be a guide for your custom lanyard order and provide valuable insight into lanyard creation.

Create Custom Lanyards for All Occasions

  • Quantity. How many lanyards do you want to buy? This will quickly narrow down the number of choices at the Lanyard Wizard.
  • Budget. How much do you want to spend? The prices are per lanyard, but quantity discounts are available. 
  • Timeline. When do you need the lanyards? Our Quick Ship Lanyards ship to you in just one day, but the Smart Buy Lanyards take 4-6 weeks. Be sure you choose the lanyard that will deliver your custom lanyard order in time.
  • Style. Do you have a lanyard style preference? I personally like the Vivid Color Lanyards because you can match colors and the fabric is very soft. We also have Embroidered Lanyards and Recycled Lanyards if an eco-friendly option is important. 
  • Size. What width lanyard do you need? If the lanyards will be used for a long period of time, I recommend our thicker styles for long lasting comfortable wear. 
  • Breakaway. The breakaway feature on a custom lanyard is for security purposes. This style is typically used in manufacturing environments and elementary schools. You can read more about the breakaway in our Knowledge Center.
  • Attachment. Standard metal attachments are available for all of our custom lanyards, and it includes a split ring, j-hook, and bulldog clip. Consider how you want the ID card displayed before making your selection. If you have a one-sided ID card, I recommend the bulldog clip because it won’t turn your ID card around.
  • Length. Are you buying custom lanyards for children? Then you will want the child-size lanyard length.
  • Design. What do you want your custom lanyard to say? You have many color, font and graphic choices, or you can add your own logo. This is the fun part!

That’s it! You’ve now created your custom lanyards!

Custom Lanyards Improve Photo ID Card Wear-ability

by david 13. July 2010 08:00

Once you design and print your photo ID cards, you need to provide a method for your employees, students or staff to display them. Lanyards are one of the most popular ID card display accessories, and many customers prefer to create a custom lanyard for their organization.

Around IDville, our employees use lanyards to express their individual style. Employees get to pick the lanyard of their choice from our sample wall, and many change their lanyard on a regular basis depending on their mood or outfit. Most employees prefer our premium theme lanyards because of their fun and colorful designs. 

I recommend giving your employees the same choice and flexibility when it comes to their everyday lanyard. Get a bundle of different lanyard styles, and let individuals pick the one they prefer. When employees like their lanyards, they’re more likely to wear their photo ID card.

If you want to have a more uniform look to your employee lanyards, create a custom lanyard for your organization. IDville’s Lanyard Wizard walks you through the process to choose the lanyard style that best fits your organization’s needs and budget. You’ll need to know if you want a full color lanyard, like our themed lanyards, or a one color imprint on a colored lanyard.

The next step in creating a custom lanyard is selecting an attachment. The attachment connects to your ID card and impacts how it is displayed. Take your card’s orientation, whether it is one sided or two and its most frequent uses into consideration when you select your attachment.

After that, have fun designing your lanyard! I recommend incorporating your organization’s logo, mascot or corporate values into your custom lanyard design. Since employees will wear their lanyards around the office, in front of customers, visitors and when they go out to lunch., you should utilize the custom lanyards to promote your organization’s image.
