Do you think Lanyard is still an item that is used by the boaters and the navy? You are wrong in that case! Lanyards are now part and parcel of various events and are being used to serve many different purposes such as:
- Reunion: A school or college reunion is a gathering of friends where people meet after a long time. Naturally, there has to be an item that will make the event memorable for the people attending it. A good idea can be to distribute lanyards with the name of the school or college along with the year on it. Similarly, in case of a family reunion, the name of the family can be written on it.
- Fan Club: If you are the member of a fan club, you can take the initiative of making a lanyard featuring the name of the club along with the star whose fan club it is. Such lanyards can be distributed among all the members of the fan club under consideration.
- Carrier: A lanyard can also be regarded as a place to hold the keys, cold-drink bottles or other such stuffs. If you are a person who is active all the time and does not have enough space in the pocket to store these things, we would suggest you to use a lanyard for the purpose. It is a small and inexpensive thing but can function well over here.
- Sports Lover: If you are a sports lover and heading towards the stadium to cheer for your team, you can order a set of lanyards and distribute them among your group to get a better feel of the whole event. The lanyard should have the name of your favourite team along with its logo printed on it.
- Security: Lanyards can also be used for security purposes. The students of a school and college and also the stuffs can be provided with lanyards which they can use as a form of identity. This can help the school and college authorities to ensure security in the campus.
- Corporate Offices: Lanyards can also be distributed among the employees of a corporate office to maintain uniformity among them. They help the stuffs to bear uniqueness with respect to the others. They can be given out during different corporate events such as sports events, philantrophy-based events such as blood donation camps, annual day of the company and so on...
- Other Purposes: A lanyard can serve lots of other purposes as well. It can be used to hang inhalers, epi-pens and other such stuffs due to lack of space.
- Events: It becomes difficult to distinguish persons as VIP, media people and audience during any cultural or official event. If lanyards of different colors are distributed among different categories of people, it becomes easier to identify them.
- Camping and Vacations: If you are planning an adventurous trip or any other trip with your family, a lanyard will come handy for you and will help you to carry things like lanterns along with you.
- Promotional: Lanyards can also be used in branding and marketing campaigns in order to promote a brand. If lanyards with the name and logo of the brand are distributed among the mass or the targeted audience, more and more people will come to know about it and a brand awareness will be developed.
- Expressing Gratefulness: A vote of thanks accompanied by a lanyard would make your customers happy and can keep them returning to your store. Everyone loves to get such small little gifts. And in case of a lanyard, the name of your store or company printed on it will serve as an advertisement too!
Lanyards can thus be distributed on multiple occasions and serve as great gifts for customers, employees or friends, as the case may be. The reasons why they are being excessively used in these spheres are the affordable-price, functionality, handy nature and lastly the option of writing something on it. You can print anything on them- not only letters but also logos and can thus use them in many ways.
