Custom lanyards come in multiple different types of material. Polyester lanyards with imprinted artwork are the most common because of their cost-effectiveness. We also offer photo lanyards that are created with a special polyester-based material that’s perfect for heat transfer designs and has a smooth texture reminiscent of silk. Nylon is another type of lanyard material. We offer
with imprinted artwork, just like polyester lanyards, but the material is slightly thicker and has a natural shine that helps make artwork pop.
When it comes to custom lanyards, nylon and polyester are the two most popular material options. Custom nylon lanyards stand apart from the crowd thanks to the natural shine of the material. The reflective surface helps imprinted artwork stand out in crisp detail. Whether you’re looking for a bold text design or company emblem, nylon will help your message shine and stand out from all the competition.
If this is your first time ordering a set of custom lanyards, choosing the right material for your design may seem confusing. Heat transfer lanyards are a little easier to differentiate from the others thanks to their photo print designs, but the difference between a polyester lanyard and a custom nylon lanyard is harder to spot in pictures alone.
Nylon and polyester look very similar and have a few similar traits. They’re both stretch resistant and wrinkle resistant, making them ideal for custom lanyard design. So why choose one over the other? The answer comes down to a preference for how your artwork is presented.
Nylon is slightly thicker and stiffer than polyester, and the material has a reflective quality that helps artwork pop. Nylon also has a smoother surface than polyester, making for crisp and clean imprinted designs. This combined with the shiny surface of the material makes nylon stand apart in both texture and aesthetic from a polyester design.
Making Artwork Pop With a Custom Nylon Lanyard Design
The design of a personalized nylon lanyard is imprinted onto the material through a high-quality silk screen printing method. Our production team takes a blank nylon lanyard and imprints your design on both sides using a custom-made stencil. The first imprint color is free, but we can recreate brand logos and emblems with multiple different colors in the same design with a small increase in unit price.
The custom artwork on a set of nylon imprinted lanyards has a smooth texture and crisp quality. Bold text, company logos and school mascot designs are just a few ideas for artwork you can print onto a set of blank nylon lanyards in beautiful detail. The reflective material helps imprinted colors stand out even more.
We have a selection of lanyard colors for you to choose from, and our production facility can also dye nylon to create a custom color as close to your organization’s brand as possible. While we can’t guarantee it will be an exact match, the end result is worth it if you’re looking for a truly one of a kind design.
Another important aspect of your lanyard design is the size. Our custom-made nylon lanyards are available in sizes from .375” to 1”. The smaller sizes we offer are best suited for designs that are mostly text. If you're hoping to include logos or custom emblems, choosing a larger width will ensure that the imprinted artwork is clearly legible, even from a distance.
If you have an idea for your own set of custom printed nylon lanyards, you can get started by filling out a free quote form. The quote form is the best place to get in contact with our sales team, to let us know how many lanyards you need, and to give us your deadline for the project. There’s also a place to upload any brand guidelines for the artwork, choose a size for your lanyards, and choose an attachment option.
Once your quote form is completed, we’ll set to work and have your first free digital proof ready within 48 hours. All artwork and revisions are free, so be sure to let us know how we can improve the design.
Choosing the Right Attachment Option for the Job
More often than not, people need lanyards to carry around ID badges or keys, but we offer a range of different attachment options that accommodate anyone’s needs. Companies ordering lanyards for a convention or trade show will often pair their designs with a bulldog clip and custom badge holder. Bulldog clips are a favorite attachment for badge holders because they lie flat, ensuring IDs are always facing forward.
If you expect your order of custom nylon lanyards to be lugging around heavier items like wallets, cell phones or water bottles, a lobster claw or split keyring will get the job done. We also have premium options available like carabiner hooks, oval clips and retractor clips.
We make sure to use the highest quality materials for all of our custom products. No matter what style of design you need or what type of attachment option you like best, you can rest easy knowing your custom-made nylon lanyards will carry their weight and stand the test of time.
