We get asked all the time why we are so passionate about what we do. Printing lanyards doesn't seem to be the most interesting way to make a living, but it's been one of the most fun and rewarding businesses we've ever been a part of.
We originally started this thinking our customers would be mainly small businesses in need of a few lanyards for their staff to wear at trade shows. To our surprise most of our customers are Mom and Dad's wanting to support their kids in their various sports and hobbies. They've been couples declaring their love for each other or announcing their weddings. They are families designing lanyards for their cruise. They are clubs, church groups, schools, bachelorette parties and friends going on wine tours.
What this has grown into has been so fulfilling. We really don't have "customers" we have new friends that make a huge impact on our lives. It never ceases to amaze us how inspiring it is to print something like "I Love You Daddy, You're My Hero" or "World's Most Amazing Wife".
So while the lanyard itself may seem like a boring product, personalizing them for our customers is something we take a great deal of pride in. We know you can buy a plain old lanyard just about anywhere, but once you add your personal touch to your lanyard it becomes something totally different. It says something about you, what you believe, what you stand for, your kids sports team, where you work, the new business you just started and are so proud of.
Lanyards are such a practical and timeless product. They are highly functional and with a little personalization they can say so much.
Did you know that lanyards were originally developed and used by early French sailors to secure their pistols, cool right? While their use and design has evolved a great deal over the years they are just as important in the modern world. Not only are they a great for ID holders they are an even better way to keep track of your keys. It's hard to lose your key when it's hanging around your neck :)
In today's high security environment that requires so many workers, students and staff members to carry a badge to enter their schools and places of business, lanyards and ID Badge Holders are almost a requirement. Custom printed lanyards made just for you is one way to add a little flair to your badge.
Modern lanyards are available in an almost limitless amount of styles, colors, fabrics and safety features not to mention all the designer lanyards that are now on the market. They can be seen almost everywhere: used in branding for businesses both small and large, promoting sports teams of every type, recognizing volunteers, promoting community and family events, and so much more.
We've printed thousands of personalized lanyards since we started this business and every lanyard tells a little story about the person who we made it for. And that is what makes what we do so much fun!
