Lanyards are a functional item that are designed to hold membership cards, event cards, and other forms of plastic card that may be required by employees, attendees, and other individuals.The lanyard is a rope type object that connects through a card holder or directly through the card if it has a punch hole and then usually goes around the neck. Using a lanyard means that the card is always on display, easy to read, and easily accessible by the card user.
The primary function of a lanyard is that of holding an access card or other form of plastic card. Typically, such cards are used for gaining access to restricted areas but they may also be used as staff passes to show that a person holds a certain position. For example, event organisers may wear them to indicate that they are part of the organisational team.
The lanyard helps to ensure that the card is kept in a useful and handy place, namely around the neck. The card should hang loose enough that it can be easily be used and accessed but not so loose that it is easily lost. There are many choices when it comes to the design of lanyards so whether you want yours branded with a company name or you want to choose one with either plastic or metal beads you can.
Providing your employees with lanyards can help improve security and negate the need to keep buying and providing replacement cards. You can also have stock lanyards created that include the position of the person wearing them or bearing the company brand or logo. In fact, you can have the straps personalised to read virtually anything you want them to so that they can used for functions, events, seminars, or to give to employees and visitors.
Plastic cards have many uses, especially as work ID cards or access passes. In order to make them even more functional and beneficial you should consider including lanyards that are designed to provide even greater functionality to the user. They help ensure that the card is easily accessible, safe, and does not pose a threat to the wearer.
