What Really Are Promotional Printed Lanyards?

I'll be honest. I didn't know what Printed Lanyards really was until I entered the world of promotional merchandise. Well, I knew what they were but I didn't know that these things people hung around their necks were called promotional printed lanyards, that's all. And I'm sure I wasn't alone.

I thought that the only use for printed lanyards was at posh trade shows where you have to wear your pass around your neck for all to survey. I didn't actually realise they were also fast becoming a fashion accessory in the same way that wristbands have/were.

I was perusing a rather well know US Car forum last night and noted that in their online shop, they were selling printed lanyards with their forum logo printed along with the pattern. They looked good. But why would petrolheads want one of these? Why would anybody?

If you take a peek at our printed lanyards section on our website, you'll see all manner of uses for these. Our favourite is possible the Lanyard Bottle Opener - perfect for waiters and bar staff...looking good and practical too.

So, there you have it...printed lanyards are more than just a fashion accessory and they remain one of our best selling products. If you are hosting a public event this summer, run a forum, bar or sports club, then consider this VERY affordable form of promotional merchandise!
