Neck Lanyards, Wrist Lanyards & More For Your ID Badges & Cards

In a post 9/11 world, businesses and organizations are upping security more than ever. Unfortunately it is a necessary reality. An integral part of security is the ID badge or security card.

These pieces of identification are often presented at entryways, used to log in and out of work, access rooms and much more. Keeping these cards in a wallet obscures them and makes them difficult to use and access. This is where the lanyard comes into play.

Lanyards are usually designed to be attached to an ID card and be worn around the neck, although this is not always the case. Lanyards typically attach directly to the card, through a slot-punched hole, or to a badge holder with a specially designed hole or slot.

Lanyards come in a wide range of colors, shapes and designs. Many even include a breakaway design in case the lanyard becomes suck in machinery.

At ABC Office, we sell four different types of lanyards.

  • The first, and most common style is the neck lanyard.
  • The second style is the wrist lanyard, which (surprise) is worn around the wrist. Wrist lanyards usually consist of plastic coils (like a phone cord) that attach to an ID card.
  • The third type of lanyard is the key ring lanyard, which allows you to attach an ID card to your key ring. Key ring lanyards are ideal for use with smaller key cards and ID cards.
  • The fourth type of lanyard, or retainer, we sell is the eyeglass lanyard. This lanyard is not designed to hold an ID card, but rather eyeglasses and safety glasses.

You can find our entire selection of badge lanyards here.
