Custom Vivid Color Lanyards Enhance Your ID Cards

Custom Vivid Color Lanyards Enhance your ID Cards

This is the third IDentify Newsletter in a series on ID badge accessories. Over the next few months, we'll be talking about the different ID badge accessory options in order to help you choose the right one for your organization. This month, we're focusing on one of our custom lanyard options.

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.

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 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 cards and 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.

EXPERT'S CORNER: Creating Your Own Custom Lanyards

Creating your own custom lanyards 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. Use this guideline from the IDville blog to easily create your custom lanyards.

  1. Quantity. How many lanyards do you want to buy? This will quickly narrow down the number of choices at the Lanyard Wizard.
  2. Budget. How much do you want to spend? The prices are per lanyard, but quantity discounts are available.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 to you.
  5. 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.

Case Study: Create Secure ID Cards Quickly

Before you can design your custom lanyards, you need to design a secure and effective ID card, like California's Shasta County Sheriff's Department. With 260 employees and volunteers on staff, it was critical the department make the shift from Polaroid® cut-and-paste ID cards to higher-quality, safer identification methods.

"In the event of a terrorist attack or mass casualty event, we wanted to be able to issue ID cards to first responders on the spot," said Brenda Galey of Shasta County Sheriff's Department.

In the past, Shasta County was using the traditional cut-and-paste laminate method for making their IDs. Not only was that method unsafe and easy to duplicate, it was also time consuming and distracting.

With a new photo identification system from IDville, Galey can now take a photo and print an ID card in less than one minute with a custom holographic overlay key to increase each card's security level.

"The new system has made the ID cards easier to produce and they look much more professional," added Galey. "It has also made printing new ID cards easier; as people change positions and get promoted we can just use the same photo and update the other information."
