We offer several different types of lanyards, all of
which have the potential for beautiful designs. However,
dye sub lanyards
stand out from the crowd more than any other type of
lanyard thanks to their ability to capture realistic, full color artwork. The dye sublimation process allows
our team to color match any brand artwork you need and heat transfer any type of digital design into a
lanyard with intricate detail.
There’s a difference between making a multi-color lanyard with imprinted artwork and
creating a full color lanyard with heat transferred artwork. Imprinted polyester lanyards and woven lanyards
are both excellent choices for colorful designs with bold text and logos, but our custom dye sub lanyards
offer an entirely new level of vibrancy and detail. If you need custom lanyards with picture-perfect designs,
our photo lanyards are the best option.
We have ordered personalized lapel pins, challenge coins, patches, and lanyards from Signature. Every order has been beautifully crafted, well-packaged, and delivered on-time. Staff has helped to create designs that we like and are attractive. Everything is handled professionally and efficiently. We keep coming back for more!
Unlike imprinted polyester lanyards which use silk screen printing to transfer artwork onto the surface of a
lanyard, dye sublimated lanyards have artwork heat transferred into the fabric. We say “into” because the ink
design is infused with the material through the dye sublimation process.
Once a digital version of your custom artwork is created, our production team prints the design onto sheets
of transfer paper. The transfer paper is laid over blank lanyards, which are then laid inside a heat press.
Heat and pressure are applied using the press, which causes the ink on the transfer paper to go from a solid
state to a gas state. After a few moments, the ink is fully infused into the blank lanyards, creating a
permanent design with full-coverage that won’t wash away.
The ability to create full color designs over the entire surface of a lanyard opens the door to all kinds of
unique and interesting designs with photo quality. If you’re looking for more than just the standard text and
logo lanyard design, custom sublimated lanyards are your best option.
Making Custom Lanyards With Picture Perfect Designs
There are certain ways to approach creating a photo transfer lanyard design, depending on where the lanyards
will be used and who will be using them. For a company lanyard created for branding purposes or a corporate
event, most people choose to center the design around emblems or company logos.
The incredible detail of a custom photo lanyard design makes it easy to recreate even the smallest company
emblems with perfect accuracy. Some people choose to have the logo repeated up and down the length of the
lanyard, but there is so much more room to expand on your design.
Dye sublimation lanyards can smoothly transition between colors along the length of the design, whereas
imprinted and woven designs are created on top of one solid color. If you want your lanyard to stand out from
the crowd, you can mix and match different colors along the length of the lanyard, so your logo appears in
several different hues.
Instead of including a logo or emblem, it’s also possible to make full color lanyards with photos that have
realistic shading and detail. We’ve worked on promotional lanyards for games, films, clubs and stores that
have artwork of knights in shining armor, fire breathing dragons, and all kinds of other character designs.
All we need to get started on a set of custom full color lanyards are a few ideas. Whether it’s a custom
badge holder lanyard or a specialty lanyard designed for your company’s next big event, we’ve got you covered.

Creating custom lanyards with pictures gives you the greatest ability to capture designs with realistic
detail, and ordering a larger sized lanyard adds even more ability to create an intricate design. We offer dye
sub lanyards in sizes between .375” and 1”. Custom dye sublimated lanyards focused on patterns or colorful
text turn out beautifully in any size, but character artwork or designs with scenery like mountains or
buildings benefit from the added space of a larger lanyard.
Depending on how you plan on using your dye sub lanyards, some attachment options may work better than
others. Bulldog clips and J hooks are excellent options for carrying ID badges and access cards. Lobster claws
and keyrings are better suited for securing heavier items like water bottles, keys or cell phones.
Once you choose the options you need, our art team will set to work creating an eye-catching, full color
lanyard design. Artwork and revisions are always free, and your first free proof will be ready within 48
hours. Make sure to let us know how we can improve the design before finalizing your order.
