In recent years, schools, offices, factories, and public service departments have become acutely aware of the need for additional security measures. It’s just a fact of life these days that I.D. badges are a must for students, teachers, factory workers and office staff.

The challenge is to find the best way for people to carry those required badges. A simple clip-on holder can work, but they’re easy to lose. Pin-on badge holders damage clothing.

The best answer for many people is custom lanyards. A simple, comfortable way to carry an I.D. badge and keep it front and center, a lanyard is easy to wear, won’t damage clothing, and is hard to lose.

That hard to lose quality makes it especially well suited for younger students. They, and their parents, don’t have to worry about the possibility of a clip-on badge holder coming off and getting lost somewhere between the classroom and home. Customize them with an imprint of the school mascot and they’re even fun to wear.

In a professional setting, lanyards are a well-established cost effective way to increase your brand awareness while providing the requisite security function. Print your business or office name or logo on each one and every time your staff interacts with customers, they promote your brand too.

Lanyards Offer Value

At TJM Promos, of course we offer the full range of I.D. badge holders and attachment methods. But most of our customers find custom lanyards offer the most value.

Safety breakaways enable you to use lanyards in what would otherwise be hazardous locations such as machine shops, correctional facilities or medical centers.

If a lanyard equipped with a reusable safety breakaway is grabbed, pulled or snagged in machinery, the breakaway pops loose from the wearer’s neck, preventing injury.

If you need a bit of extra reach, say, for key cards, add badge reels to your lanyards. They allow they wearer to extend the key card far enough to reach a swipe mechanism without having to take the lanyard off. Once the latch opens, the I.D. badge remains securely with the wearer.
