What’s the importance of a lanyard?
A lanyard is a cord or strap worn around the neck, shoulder, or wrist to carry such items as keys or identification cards. Staff name badges and lanyards are an important part of the medical uniform for healthcare because they are a cost-effective way to identify staff members. Plus our heat transfer lanyards are machine washable, making them perfect for environments where infection control is a priority, as they can be washed and re-used knowing they are clean to wear.

5 tips for printing your lanyards.
Whether you’re trying to attract visitors to the event, or it’s the day of the event and they’ve arrived, your branding needs to be big and creative. You will most likely be competing with a lot of other companies and distractions for the attention of your visitors, so you need to go above and beyond to catch their eye. Doing things a little differently will give your event the best chance of being successful. We prefer to go for a bold full-colour lanyard when trying to stand out from the crowd as you have the capacity to get as creative as you like.
Design and Logos.
When branding your lanyards, you want to ensure your brand is seen from far away and can catch the eyes of others. We have noticed over time that by ensuring your lanyard is 2cm width, it will be a good enough size to accommodate any brand logo that needs to be printed onto the lanyard. We normally would recommend going for a 1 colour printed logo if it was to go on a full colour printed background.
Every event organiser should know the basics of social media. Social media gives you the tools to brand your event in a creative and engaging way and share what your brand is getting up to. By having a consistent, unique hashtag is a good way of creating a conversation online and getting your event to trend online. A social media prop is a great way to populate your hashtag. At the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, visitors were encouraged to use these social media props to take memorable pictures.
Provide branded or personalised clothing for your staff and volunteers to wear and they become walking adverts. This gives your event a strong identity and helps it to stand out from the competition. If staff are wearing a uniform, they’ll be instantly recognisable for visitors, ensuring any issues or queries are dealt with quickly. A uniform is practical and creates a sense of staff unity as they’re all on the same team. Many events and festivals opt for wristbands in the place of tickets. Wristbands are a great choice because people like to collect and wear them for months afterwards. Using them for staff and visitors allows you to promote your event well into the future. Be bold and creative when it comes to branding your event, but don’t forget the basics like staff clothing and banners. Whatever size or scale the event is, branding is a vital step if it’s going to be a huge success.
