Help - I'm not sure which Lanyard is right for me!

First, you need to ask yourself if you would like personalised lanyards with your company logo or design printed or woven on them.

If the answer is "YES":

Then you should check out our custom lanyard page.

We can supply custom lanyards in as little as 7-10 working days from artwork approval for printed lanyards on stock-coloured material (Pantone-matching can add up to a week on to production times). Woven and Satin lanyards generally take a bit longer (generally 2-3 weeks).

Some logos will be better suited to specific neck strap styles and we're more than happy to advise. Simply click the Contact Us button and send us your requirements and your logo and we'll advise the best strap to go for. If you would prefer to discuss your requirements over the phone, then give us a call - the number is on our contact us page (just click the button on the above/right to go there now). Please note that we cannot give quotes out over the phone (all quotes must be in writing). If you require a quote, please go here.

Screen Printed Bespoke Lanyards If your logo has 1-4 solid colours, then you should consider screen printed straps (our top seller!). Generally, the more complicated your logo, the wider the strap should be. For example, simple text-based logos can be printed on 1cm wide material but if your logo is more complicated, it may be better to choose a wider (1.5-2.5cm) ribbon to allow the details to be visible.


full colour printed lanyardsIf your logo contains colour gradient effects, or is particularly detailed then you need full colour straps. As with other printed lanyards, more complicated logos would benefit from a wider strap.


Our minimum order quantity for printed straps is just 50pcs, one of the lowest minimum order quantities available on high quality straps in the UK.

Woven straps are tough and hardwearing but are better suited for less complicated logos in no more than 2 colours. If you like a woven lanyard but need more than 2 colours, then you could choose the satin lanyard - the satin layer has a much finer weave allowing more complicated logos and more colours to be achieved.

We can even Pantone-match the material to your specific corporate colours, if you let us know the Pantone reference (minimum order quantity for Pantone-matching is just 100pcs). Simply click the button above to go to our Contact Us page then either fill in the form with your details or even better, drop us an email and attach a copy of your logo/design so we can offer no-obligation advice.

If the answer is "NO":

Check out our plain stock page with perhaps the widest choice of strap colours available in the UK - available for next working day delivery (sold in packs of 10).

Alternatively, we carry a range of pre-printed straps in stock:

If you would like your straps printed with generic text such as "STAFF", "CONTRACTOR", "CONSULTANT", "FIRST AIDER", "NHS" etc. but don't need them customised with your logo, please visit our pre- printed lanyard page. We have many varieties of pre-printed straps in stock for next working day delivery (if ordered by 1:30pm Monday to Friday, excluding holidays). These are also sold in packs of 10, with 1 pack (10 straps) being the minimum order quantity.
