Custom Photo Lanyards

Custom photo lanyards stand out among all the different types

of custom lanyards because of their ability to capture full-color designs in unrivaled levels of detail. Woven lanyards and imprinted polyester lanyards are both excellent options for creating designs with logos and text, but a heat transfer photo lanyard has the greatest potential for highly detailed artwork. If you’re looking for a full-color design with intricate detail, our dye sublimation lanyards with photo printed artwork are the best choice for you.


Photo Lanyard

Crisp Detail and Shiny Material

Photo lanyards are created through a process called dye sublimation. Instead of screen printing or using thread to sew a design, dye sublimation lanyards have an image heat transferred into the polyester material. This allows our customers to make lanyards with photos, giving their designs vivid color and crisp detail. If you’re in the market for a full-color design with the highest level of detail available, heat transfer photo lanyards are the best option for you.

Why Order Personalized Photo Lanyards?

Choosing the best lanyard for your design is mostly a matter of personal preference and budget, but there are certain artwork considerations as well. Budget-friendly tube lanyards, for example, are an excellent choice for simple, text-heavy designs, and the threaded artwork on our woven lanyards is known for its longevity. When it comes to custom printed photo lanyards, the heat transferred designs are known for their incredible levels of detail.

If you’re in the market for a personalized lanyard with picture-perfect artwork, you can’t beat the level of crisp, realistic detail and vibrant color of a heat transfer design. Through a process called dye sublimation, our production team can infuse a photo or digital design into the fabric of your lanyards, opening the door to a world of possibilities for unique and interesting artwork.

Photo Quality Lanyard Designs For Every Occasion

A majority of the lanyards we help design are company lanyards with bold text and logos. Usually, an imprinted nylon lanyard or woven design is all a customer needs to create a vibrant design. However, the people looking for artwork that has complex gradients in color and realistic detail always turn to custom photo lanyards.

Music festivals, comic-cons and companies in the entertainment industry are just a few of the different types of customers who order promotional lanyards with heat transfer designs. A vibrant pride festival design with a full-color rainbow pattern or a comic-con design with a fire breathing dragon are just two examples of artwork best suited for a dye-sublimated lanyard.

Theme parks create their own photo lanyard designs to promote seasonal events or popular attractions. We’ve seen everything from Halloween themed designs with photo printed skull patterns to designs featuring famous franchises and characters from movies, games and comics. In a park, they’re perfect for carrying around cards, cash and IDs, and at home, they work perfectly for carrying keys or other miscellaneous things you need.

Instead of just including text and an emblem, custom photo lanyards will often incorporate unique and interesting artwork that’s meant to be more than just company swag. Whether it’s a comic-con design featuring your favorite video game characters or a festival design with vibrant color and artwork, photo lanyards are the best choice for showing off a sense of personality in your artwork.
